Well, dear people a tiara is always a tiara, particularly with regard to all the goodies put on display in this thread. My problem is I want all of them and can wear none of them. Sigh!!! As for the wave tiara not being very attractive, I must respectfully disagree. The thing is Drop Dead Gorgeous and with the right parure would be a total knock out. I hope I have not shocked the members too much but according to Mr. Munn (aka the Prophet) the whereabouts of the said item are unknown. This quite often means such an jewel has been melted down and the stones sold and put to another use but then maybe not. When I posted that missive I was hoping against hope that I would scare the thing up, instead it seems I scared some people instead. It may just be stuck off in somebody's bank vault and will show up someday. I certainly hope so.

Any woman wearing the thing would look stunning, unless she were Beatrix of the Netherlands and buried the thing in her hair or rather have the think swallowed up in her hair. I have often thought that the noble B should simply shave her head and get a good wig.

As for not yet having the bible (ie the Prophets book on tiaras) in one's possession do not feel bad or ashamed. The thing is fabulous but it costs a fortune. I have been wavering between my lust for it and my lust or greed and love of money. some idiot here stole the library copy and so there no other to be found. but one can certainly understand an uncontrollable lust to have that book where Tiaras: a history of splendor is concerned. Life is hard. Cheers. Thomas Parkman

Fear not Thomas, I have recovered from my initial shock re the possible destruction of the wave tiara but I still hope that some billionaire will dust it off and wear it someday or just invite me over to get a closer look at it. Sigh:p A girl can dream can't she?!
As far as getting Munn's book-I have put it on my wish list and told the hubby where to purchase it and if that doesn't work I'll buy it for myself!

I love the Fringe Tiara that King Carl XVI Gustaf gave to Queen Silivia for their tenth wedding anniversary. Now it is mainly worn by Princess Madeleine. It looks wonderful on her IMO. To me, it's such a pretty and classic tiara (actually a converted necklace). I like that it has dual function. A picture of Madeleine wearing this simple but gorgeous tiara can be seen in my profile. :)

The Connaught Diamond Tiara is also very beautiful! It seems to be a favorite of Queen Silvia's.

Someone posted a pic of this tiara a early on in this thread. This is part of the parure of Queen Theresa of Bavaria, picture taken from the book Crown Jewels of Britain and Europe by Prince Michael of Greece. I had another photo showing the FULL parure but do not know what the dickens I have done with it (incl. a jewelled hair comb, along with a few other bits and bobs).

I just have a question, I love coronet type tiara's and I was wondering why they haven't come back? I know this isn't a very good picture of what I'm talking about but it's the only modern one I could find. http://images.google.com/imgres?imgu...lr%3D%26sa%3DG

I would like to see a modern princess wear a similiar version of this tiara worn. Hopefully someday.

Vile! It looks like something out of "The Lord of the Rings".

But there are one or two coronets about and I too see nothing wrong with women wearing them. Come to think of it, we should go back to the days when men/male sovereigns wore one, too!

I know, that one isn't very good looking, but it was the only one I could use to illustrate what I was talking about. I do like the size though:) that's about it. I hope a princess or future Queen would wearing something like that, though not with the lady bugs and gold flaps sticking up. Maybe something in white gold with diamonds kind of like the last pic Magnik posted "Great Imperial Crown made for the Empress Catherine II". Thank you Magnik and Australian for posting those pictures.

I'm a new member and for my first posting I'd like to say "thank you" to all of you. This forum is amazing......full of wonderful information and fabulous photographs. I have to admit, I'm addicted to anything having to do with royal jewels, so I'm finally in the right place! And I find that almost all of my questions have been answered in the postings. What more could a girl ask for?? Thank you all again.

I remember a story that Queen Marie of Y had a hard time giving the tiara up & give it to her daughter-in-law & she locked the thing up in a safe of a London bank. I cannot remember the full anecdote though (can anybody else?).
It's a saphire kokoshnik that queen marie of roumania bought to sons of gran duchess vladimir of russia. At the death of queen marie, her daughter, princess ileana, inherited the tiara that sold in 1948 to Cartier.
The emerald tiara by queen marie of Y bought to gran duchess marie pavlovna the younger, daughter of gran duke pavel and princess alexandra of greece. The tiara was given by her aunt, gran duchess elizabeth fiodorovna (inicially it's a gift of her husband, Serge), when marie pavlovna married with prince william of sweden in 1908.
**Sorry, but my english it's very bad.

The Westminster kokoshnik is gorgeous. The translucent blue filler adds a lot to it.
