Her facebook page (I think I can put that here, it looks more official)

Should they seriously restore the monarchy, she won´t be a mousy Queen. that´s for sure.  Beer

The family had another similar tiara.  Same goat motif at the top but in sapphires and diamonds.  I've seen it on Queen Susan. I wonder what happened to it and also wonder how this one got away from them.

Princess' of Albania's Oak Leaf Diamond Goat Tiara

The Princesses' tiaras are of platinum and diamonds. The center motif is the helmet of Skanderbeg, while the sides represent Albanian oaks. Designed by Marianne Ostier in 1938 for Oesterreicher, the predecessor of Ostier Inc., New York. The Royal Princesses were the sisters of King Zog of the Albanians.

Two of the five Albanian princesses owned a tiara in this style (Princess Ruhije and Princess Senije of Albania); another tiara was made by Koechert and the sketch of the jewel is known.

This tiara was sold at auction in 1985 in Spain and it was wrongly described as the tiara of the Queen, which it was not. It was offered by Duran Madrid for 3 240 000 pesetas.



 



Koechert - Princess of Albania Diamont Tiara

The tiara, made of diamonds, shows the royal crest of the "Ram of Skanderbeg" and was designed in 1930 by the famous jeweller Koechert, Vienna. It had scroll ornaments which was different to the other Albanian princesses' tiaras. Each of the five Princesses of Albania, sisters of the King Zog, owned one admirable diamond tiara. This could be one of the princesses' diamond tiaras. Nothing further is known about the jewel.






Countess Geraldine Apponyi wedding present

Countess Geraldine Apponyi, also referred to as "The White Rose of Hungary" before her marriage to the 42-year old King in 1938, was one of Europe's great aristocratic beauties.



ART DECO DIAMOND BRACELET, BY MARIANNE OSTIER
The wide flexible bracelet, composed of a series of three pav?-set diamond pierced plaques, each centering upon an old European-cut diamond, flanked by baguette-cut diamonds, to the similarly-set geometric trim, joined by navette-shaped links of similar design, mounted in platinum, circa 1938, 7? ins., with French assay marks and maker's mark, in a Oesterreicher Wien purple suede fitted case.
Signed Oesterreicher Wien. Sold on behalf of the Royal Family by Ostier, Inc., 1960. The bracelet came to auction again in 2004 at Christie's.

ART DECO DIAMOND DOUBLE-CLIP BROOCH, BY MARIANNE OSTIER
Each clip designed as a pav?-set diamond scrolling openwork plaque, enhanced by a baguette-cut diamond spray, surmounted by an old European-cut diamond, accented by baguette and old European-cut diamond floret trim, mounted in platinum, (accompanied by brooch fittings and an ivory-handled tool), circa 1938, in a Oesterreicher Wien purple suede fitted case. Signed Oesterreicher Wien. Sold for the Royal Family by Ostier, Inc., 1960



Queen Geraldine of Albania's Wildflower Diadem

The tiara of the Queen consist of diamonds and platinum, and shows the royal coat of arms of the "Ram of Skanderbeg" with white roses and a band of Albanian wildflowers.

The tiara was designed and manufactured by Marianne Ostier, kept a red leather box for the diadem, also marked with the royal coat of arms above. Marianne Ostier writes in her book about this Diadem: "A Queens Crown"

The crown of the monarch and his wife or his queen was often worn by their predecessors, then passed on or inherited. Occasionally there is a departure from tradition, as in the Wedding coronation of Queen Geraldine of Albania.

Geraldine was a Roman Catholic countess and engaged to a Muslim king. A royal crown usually wears a symbol of the faith of the monarch, built into its design. There are religious motifs in ornamentation. In this case, were omitted such motifs and symbolism course. I had to make the honor of Queen Geraldine, a new crown or tiara. My problem was to establish a royal, but no religious motive. I found it in the arms of the king of Albania. This bears the stylized head of a rare mountain ram who roams the snowy peaks of the beautiful mountains of Albania.
A well-shaped ram's head set with diamonds, which I placed in the middle of the diadem, including white roses of diamonds tapered downwards with a band of Albanian wildflowers, designed the leaves of diamond baguettes. A decorative and distinctive diamond crown for decorative and distinguished Queen Geraldine.






Queen Geraldine Sapphires Parure

The Queen's sapphire tiara, made of diamonds and sapphires, shows the royal crest of the "Ram of Skanderbeg". This small tiara was worn in later years by Queen Geraldine of Albania, as well as her daughter-in-law, Queen Susan. The sapphire jewellery consisting of a large brooch with a sapphire cluster, a necklace with diamonds and 17 sapphires, a bracelet with diamonds and three round sapphires and matching sapphire ring, was sold by King Leka in the 1980's.

Minus the goats, the jewels are all very beautiful, especially the two bracelets.

Is the Albanian royal family Muslim? If they are I wonder if we'll see a ceremony similar to the ones in Jordan or in Morocco? (All other wedding ceremonies in Muslim kingdoms are typically private affairs without photos.)

The wedding is tomorrow! (or today, depending on your timezone Wink )

Guest list: http://www.royalwedding.n...st-for-the-royal-wedding/

Sofia and her sister Irene will attend (apparently Leka's parents lived in Spain and developed a relationship with JC&Sofia). Plenty of minor royals from reigning royal houses and the usual suspects from not reigning ones like the Duke (& Duchess) of Braganza who spends all his time attending every royal and public event and Princess Barbie

Georg Friedrich of Prussia on his own, Farah Diba, Guillaume and Sibilla of Lux, Lalla Meryem, Margareta and Radu, Prince and Princess Michael of Kent...
