Wedding Ensemble
c.1900

Wedding ensemble from the Struge region in Albania. The outfit consists of five parts: a shirt, harem-style pants, waistcoat, waist scarf and head scarf. This outfit was part of a young Muslim Albanian woman’s trousseau during the early 20th century. It was woven on a large silk weaving loom. She was betrothed to be married but her fiancé died in tragic circumstances and the wedding did not proceed. The young woman never married and the costume remained unworn until it was given by her family to Erik Lloga, a friend of the family, who migrated to Australia from Albania in 1969. The family were keen for him to ‘save’ the costume and the cultural traditions it represented, at a time when such traditions were under threat of survival in many eastern bloc states.

Empress Maria Feodorovna (wife of Paul I, not the other one) commissioned a diadem from the famous Duval Brothers. The Empress wanted something that would remind of the Russian fields, and so the brothers created a diadem of oak and laurel leaves, bordered by sheaves of wheat.

Such a beautiful ring

Dude that is a diadem, not a ring
