Above is a photograph of Grand Duchess Maria Pavlovna of Russia (also known as Maria Pavlovna the Younger) and Prince Wilhelm, Duke of Södermanland on their wedding day.

The Grand Duchess is wearing the traditional wedding jewels worn by all Romanov brides: the Russian Nuptial Crown, the Russian Nuptial Tiara with a rare pink diamond as its center stone, diamond earrings in the form of cherries and the collier d’esclave diamond necklace. Attached to her dress is Catherine the Great’s diamond mantle.
