The "filler" is blue enamel and is not translucent.

my favorite is of course the George IV state Diadem. The same one QEII wore in the beginning of the coronation.

OK so I was on Getty images and I found a few tiara that i really liked and so i thought I would share them with you guys (and let me just say right now that I'm sorry if some of these are already on here, but oh well. And let me also say that I really don't know the names of these tiaras I just know the names of the people wearing them. anyways!)

1. H.M. Queen Elizabeth



2. Princess Birgitte(?), Duchess of Gloucester (did I spell that right?) Anyways, I can't really seem to find a close up picture of the tiara, so these are kinda the best ones I can find.



3. Princess Mary of Denmark. I think I might have actually seen this one a few pages back but I'm not that sure.



4. HM Queen Sofia of Spain.



5. Princess Louise, Duchess of Fife. OK I know this picture is some where on these forums, I'm not sure if its in this thread or not but I thought I would share this one too.



Well if anyone has any info on these tiaras I would be more then happy to receive any.

Well, if I can't have the Fife (sob), I'll take the Strathmore Rose. It's unique and I love the symbols of the flowers behind it.

I love the strathmore tiara. Did the Queen Mother leave it to the royal family or is back in the hands of the countess of strathmore. Its an excellent piece.

The Strathmore Rose tiara was given to the queen mother by her father on the occasion of her wedding. It is private property in the hands of the royal family. I wouldn't be suprised to see it being worn again soon (hope, hope). Princess William anyone???

Well good people when all the world is sad and dreary turn to RF and we are back to some truly drop dead gorgeous contraptions. The sun is shining and life is good again, even if it is hot as forty hells where I live. Juust about my favorite is the Westminster Princess Catherine B spinel tiara. I just wish they had done it in sapphires. then there is the Fife tiara (I can hear Warren, MN LS groaning "here does that lunatic Thomas again") which is just fabulous. We have looked long and hard dear acid rain to find an up to date picture of it to no avail.

Then there is the Desiree Clary parure worn by the DDG Princess Mary, which always revives ones spirits. I have to control myself and do only a restained and dignified droll when in public. I am so grateful to you, dear AR for finding another photo of the marvelous duchess of Glouchester in Princess Louise Cartier Indian Tiara. it really is a sight to see.

As for QEII, I do not really care very much for either of the two goodies she is wearing above. I wish one could post a photo of her wearing that fabulous Dehli Durbar necklace and the Princess Vladimir tiara set with the Cambridge emeralds. Now there is a knockout!!!! Like a dessicated weed dying of thirst in the desert I would have cooling waters poured upon me and I would be revived. Cheers. Thomas Parkman

Oh my God. Well, when she gets herself decked out and really bejeweled it is a sight to see indeed. Enough to stop traffic. One cannot help but wonder what order that is QEII is wearing. Anyway the weed is revived. Cheers.

The first Boucheron tiara pictured was owned by Princess Paul (Olga) of Yugoslavia, who was a sister of Princess Marina, Duchess of Kent.
I believe it is now owned by Olga's daughter Princess Elisabeth of Yugoslavia.
