Nope, no curse; nothing so interesting! The Poltimore tiara was bought by the King and Queen from the family of Lord Poltimore as a wedding present for Princess Margaret. I think it had been made for the previous generation of Poltimores, so it isn't that ancient. The Delhi Durbar tiara was made for Queen Mary at around the same time that the Crown of India was made for King George V, when they travelled to India for the Durbar in 1911 and couldn't take the crowns they'd worn at their coronations because the crown jewels can't leave the country.

Princess Margaret was beautiful when she married. It's a classic bridal picture and the Poltimore was the icing on a wonerful cake. :o

Jewels like the Delhi durbar tiara, may not be worn so much because of the imperial connotations/memories they evoke. Its a reminder of a time when Britain ruled India and was very much an imperial power. I mentioned this before in the Indian jewels thread, a lot of the magnificent jewels of India's nobility and royalty were "acquired" by or simply given to the Brits. For many people from the subcontinent (Indians/Pakistanis) they're not a pleasant reminder.

2) Westminister Tiara

3) Queen Alia's Cartier Tiara

4) Art Nouveau Tiara by Cartier: 1902, platinum, round-shaped old European and rose-cut diamonds in millegrain setting

Exclamation

Beautiful pictures! I have many, many favorites but if I *HAD* to make choices I would say the Empress Farah's Harry Winston one, QEII's "ivy" one that was given to her by the Nizam of Hyderabad (was broken up a few years ago :( ), and the Marie Pavlovna one that has interchangeable pearl and emerald drops, also owned by Her Majesty. There are so many, many that's it's hard to pick favorites!

Spanish Tiaras

Here are the main Spanish tiaras.

- Ansorena Fleur-de-Lys Tiara. This diamond and platinum tiara was a wedding gift from the Spanish firm Ansorena, to King Alfonso XIII, in 1906:

- Mellerio Shell Tiara. Made by the famous French firm Mellerio in 1867, this one was a wedding gift from Queen Isabella II, to the Infanta Maria Isabel:
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v3.../ansorena3.jpg


- Diamond Floral Tiara (MY FAVOURITE ONE). Made by the French jewelry firm Mellerio, this tiara was a wedding gift to Queen Sofia, from the Spanish people, in 1962. Infanta Cristina wore it on her wedding day:

- The Imperial Tiara. This diamond and platinum tiara was a bride's father gift, from Kaiser Wilhelm II, to Princess Viktoria Luise of Prussia, in 1913. Queen Sofia wore it on her wedding day and so did Princess Letizia:

- Niarchos Ruby Necklace Tiara. This one was a wedding gift to Queen Sofia, from the Greek shipping magnate Stavros Niarchos, in 1962:

Is that the French sapphire set that the Countess of Paris used to wear?

Here's a nice photo a friend took of Empress Eugenie's pearl tiara, Queen Marie-Amelie's sapphire parure, and the Angouleme emerald tiara along w/ some other crowns on display at the Louvre. I was pissed that I missed the display.

The Russian and Iranian royals have IMHO the finest overall collection ( a lot of the Russian ones have eneded up with the British royals so maybe that would be the more accurate term! ). I love Queen Elizabeth's Vladimir tiara but I guess my all-time favorite is the pink diamond one that belonged to the Empress Farah of Iran. Absolutely lovely piece. I also have a soft spot for the cameo tiara of the Swedish collection (and cannot wait to see Victoria wearing it on her wedding day).:)
