    Default Empress Alexandra Princess Alix of Hesse

    I came across this old picture and the necklace made me curious about some of her jewelry, so I started looking at more photos. She seemed to wear a lot of pearls, but also beaded stations and chains. I think some of these modern tin cup necklaces would've fit right in during her era.

    This actually reminded me of myself and my grandma...I used to play with the pearls around her neck to hear their clacking sound (but never on her Church days):

    I really like the layered tin cup look. Clearly, it is timeless!

    Is that a pearl Juliet's cap? It screams yalmulke to me, but I think Juliet's cap is the correct term, although nothing like that was worn in Shakespeare's time.

    Marvellous photos ! I can't believe the tin cup was around so long ago. But it does make sense. Pearls were increasingly rare and chain is always around !
