I was rather torn because I was so excited to finally see Queen Letizia with her new Ansorna tiara. And when worn it looked so much better than I had expected. Queen Letizia wore it with panache and pride, set on a nice up-do hairstyle. Yet the tiara itself is not exactly my favourite.

Somehow I think that Queen Maxima looked better. Her tiara was small, but the stones are breathtaking whoppers. The style of the tiara is simple yet perfectly elegant and very adaptable to modern fashion. Last not least I found her hair to be perfect, so I voted for Maxima.

I'm giving it to Letizia just for the wow effect she caused with the Ansorena surprising outing. And she put on more jewels than ever, so I think we need to encourage her to do that more often.

For overall appearance Queen Silvia is still a favourite of me (but somehow voting two months in a row for the same jewells is a bit too much), and Queen Anne Marie looked dazzling as well. Birthday girl Queen Margrethe also wore one of my fav floral tiaras, and anytime CP Mary gives an outing to her rubies is also a winner on my book. They were many great appearances, I think.

Mmh, voting twice in a row for the same person was what I did, I couldn't help it.

We also had many repeated tiaras: Queen Margrethe's floral aigrette, the Leuchtenberg, Marie's floral, Benedikte's fringe. It'r rare to see so many repeats within a month.

Ah, but voting the same person is fine, I mean voting same person+same jewels (I can't help but loving the Leuchtenberg and loving Queen Sil with it )

I voted for Queen Letizia for the simple reason that I loved seeing her in the elusive Ansorena tiara. The sheer surprise of seeing this diadem on her, in the flesh, so to speak, meant that Letizia won in the "wow" department as far as I'm concerned. And I think I'm warming up to the tiara itself, although it's by no means as impressive as some of the other diadems that were on display during the same event.

My vote goes to CP Mary with Queen Letizia coming in second. The top two tiaras, the ones from the Brunei royal wedding, are just too gaudy. I understand that's the aesthetic they like, but it's not mine. Mary's rubies are busy enough to not be boring, but not so busy that they resemble an abstract art piece.

I kind of share your opinion on the Brunei tiaras, they do look gaudy from my European/Western perspective. Also I can't get used to seeing tiaras worn on head scarfs. To me they are jewels made to adorn the hair, and covering the latter seems to be counter-effective.

But then this is also an example of cultural diversity, and as such I appreciate these pictures very much. And the more I look at the picture the more I like the way the bride looks especially with the emerald tiara, the effect is quite beautiful.
