I don't have pictures, but in the uk:

-Countess of Wessex's Aquamarine tiara (worn in Monaco) can also be a necklace.

-Princess Marina, Duchess of Kent had a pearl and diamond necklace that could also be a tiara.

-the so-called Hanover Fringe Tiara can be worn as a necklace (and perhaps the Kokoshnik of Queen Mary can be as well?)

remake the tiara

I find that some royal jewel will be changed to a new style for example the Queen Sonja's pearl tiara. I think some jewel can be changed to a better style. Whats your opinion.

What's interesting about that one is that when worn as a necklace it still looks like an upside-down tiara. The other convertibles look more like necklaces.

Cool

I may be incorrect, but I understand the Peacock Tiara has it's own separate necklace and is not convertible. The picture of Juliana looks like the tiara worn upside down. I hope one of our experts can answer, I stand corrected if I'm wrong. Juliana has pictures of her wearing other tiaras upside down.

Juliana is in fact wearing the necklace (proper) of the parure, not the tiara as a necklace. The tiara is topped with diamonds, the necklace had ruby pendants. The tiara base is all diamond, the 'base' of the necklace also has rubies in between the diamonds, etc. There are differences, you have to look closer.

Thank you for your explanation, John, it was very helpful. In any case I think both the tiara and necklace are beautiful.
