Star of The Order of St. Catherine.  In gold around it reads (in Russian) "For Love, and for Fatherland."  Empress Alexandra and all four of the Grand Duchesses took their sashes with the badges and stars with them into exile in Siberia.  They were recovered in 1933. The Empress is the Grand Mistress for life.  Therefore, the Dowager Empress Marie who escaped the Revolution with her life was the Grand Mistress.

The eight pointed star of the Order of St. Cathrine was 9 cm wide, made of silver, and set with diamonds. In the center, a silver cross rests on a scarlet enamel field, surrounded by gold letters reading in Russian "For Love and For the Fatherland"
