Word!

And I was just thinking about the Rundell... the few pictures we've seen of it do make it look larger than other tiaras. But it's deceiving because Alexandra wore a hair "poof", on top of which her tiaras were placed. I suspect that if we saw it closer to the head, it might look different.

Same thing with the Strathmore Rose. We've only seen it worn in a bandeau style over the forehead. What would it look like worn on top of the head? I know there are photoshopped versions out there, but it's kind of hard to tell because I've never seen Kate with a fancy updo. And long hair is distracting when worn with a tiara.

The Vladimir Tiara would give her a lot of versatility. She could wear it as just the circles, or with the pearl drops or the emerald drops. There is also the Cambridge connection if that is the Title the Queen gives them.

personally, I think your right on. I have seen the flower tiara by bentley and skinner before and think it would look lovely on a royal bride.

The sapphire bandeau of Empress Maria would be nice for Kate too.... but I don't know about for the wedding itself............

I haven't heard anything about the LOE tiara, but if it still exxists, I think it might be a very good choice.
I think you are quite right about Sophie's tiara looking.... well... disconnected. Perfect word for it actually......

HM will not part with the Vladimir tiara simply for the fact that it is so versatile. It is the only tiara with emerald components in the collection and can be worn three different ways (Pearls, Emeralds, just Circles).

I have to agree. Every time I see her in that tiara I cringe. It simply doesn't work, it never sits properly on her head. Disaster!

The Queen is, after all, a woman. She surely understands that a tiara and wedding gown must compliment one another, and I trust she would take all of this into account when deciding which tiara(s) to offer to Catherine.

And here's another strong vote for Catherine wearing her hair up for once on her wedding day!

I believe that the picture on the right actually shows a replica tiara from this site: royal Exhibitions - The Queens Tiaras
Unfortunately all the pictures are gone from this site and it looks like they stopped business. But the picture is exactly in the style they had on their website.

I was thinking that this tiara remodeled or perhaps with a base would be nice. looking at it closely, the diamonds are old cut and probably would not sparkle as much as a newer one. *sigh* I just hope she doesn't wear the Cambridge lover's knot. That, I think, would be a big mistake......

If I were Catherine's Mum, I would buy her a new one just for the wedding. After all, it's not like they can't afford it.

Maybe I am confusing myself...but at one time wasn't there a tiara in the BRF that is simliar to the one Maxima is wearing in the banner? Or am I thinking of the scroll?

I don't know of any tiara that is similar to the Dutch diamond bandeau.

Kate Middleton: Princess Tiaras : People.com

Cute poll! I personally am begining to think Catherine might get a new tiara either made or bought just for her as a wedding present.....

After looking at the poll mentioned above, I agree that it's cute, but I don't think that any of the tiara's are real contenders other than perhaps the Strathmore, but IMO that's a long shot at best. After seeing the QM fringe tiara I think that would be an excellent choice, as well as The Vladimir Tiara. It's really to bad that the Cambridge Lover's Knot has the history it does because I think that to would be another good choice. The best thing for Kate would be for her parents to buy her a tiara as a wedding gift so as avoid the comparisons to others who have worn one of HM's tiaras in the past.

In this economic climate, I think they would be roasted in the press and public opinion for squandering the money on a new tiara when there are so many in the vault that have not seen the light of day in generations. And she will be the wife and mother of a sovereign (hopefully) rather than a small stub on the family tree.

I am leaning towards the Strathmore Rose Tiara - because it hasnt be seen for a number of years and it is youthful and not overpowering. Also there is the obivious connection to the late Queen Mother and we know that Charles loves to display her jewels in public with Camilla wearing them so why not suggest to the Queen for Kate to be given this tiara.
Otherwise i think we will be surprised by something on the day from the vaults that has either be created from old pieces or is something unseen for decades/century which will be difficult to find out its background.
Really doubt that a new tiara will be purchased for Kate considering the British vaults.

Other jewels i could see her wearing in her royal royal - some of Diana's sapphire pieces (the boys clearly want to use their late mother's jewels for the future wives which is great) so i could see her in the Saudi suite or the iconic sapphire choker
