Grand Duchess Maria Pavlovna's jewels for the 1903 Court Ball. Briolette diamond aigrettes, which Cartier set in a tiara in 1908 (see image 1), and an emerald necklace (2 & 3) adorned her headdress (7). On her bosom, she wore an emerald brooch (4) that once belonged to Catherine the Great. Below this was pinned a large sapphire that became the central stone of a Cartier tiara commissioned in 1909 (6). A 1913 portrait by Boris Kustodiev shows her wearing this sapphire and diamond diadem (5).
