    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):
