I think this is a diamonds tiara, I don't see a green stone (emerald) on it. I agree that this tiara is absolutely beautiful:) .

Red face The Imperial Jewels of Iran

Yes
It is correct. To the coronation Van Cleef and Arpels made emerald tiaras the Empress and Princesses (Shams, Sahnaz, Fatemeh). I think that is diamond.
The Imperial Jewels of Iran:
1. This rather unique crown is the one worn by the Shahbanou of Iran on the 26th October 1967, thus the Empress of Iran’s Crown. Weighting only 1.950 kg, the crown is admirable for its elegance and oriental aspect, mingled with modernity. The crown includes 1545 stones mounted in white gold: 36 rubies, 36 emeralds, 105 pearls and 1469 diamonds, all selected from the loose gems of the treasure. The largest emerald is to be seen in the centre of the biggest sunburst, in the front of the crown.
2-3-4. Above, a spectacular tiara of diamonds and nine cabochon-cut emeralds created by Van Cleef & Arpels for HIH Princess Shahnaz of Iran, the oldest daughter of the Shah, to wear at the Coronation of 1967. The tiara is part of a parure composed of the tiara, a necklace and the pair of earrings seen below the tiara, all with cabochon-cut emeralds and old-cut diamonds, loose stones from the treasure. At the coronation ceremony Princess Shahnaz wore only the tiara and the earrings, wearing the necklace on the same evening to attend opera and the ball. The emerald and diamond necklace which is part of the parure created by Van Cleef & Arpels for HIH Princess Shahnaz of Iran. The Princess wore this necklace only on the evening of the Coronation Day as her attire was complete with the tiara and the earrings on the ceremony itself.
5.This tiara was worn by HIH Princess Fatemeh of Iran at the coronation ceremony of her half-brother, the Shah. The Princess has Qajar blood in her veins and she was curiously the only one to wear a Qajar Tiara, from the treasure. The tiara is in form of sunburst and each of the rays ends either with a pearl or an emerald. The central stone is a spinel.
6-7-8. The three pieces above form emerald and diamond parure created by Van Cleef & Arpels for HIH Princess Shams of Iran, the elder sister of the Shah. The tiara is formed by diamonds and square emeralds, apart of the one on the centre top. The necklace, with ten square cut emeralds, was not actually worn by Princess Shams during the celebrations, since at the ceremony she only wore the tiara and the earrings and on the evening she wore different jewels.
9. A beautiful diamond and ruby tiara made for HIH Princess Ashraf of Iran, the twin sister of the Shah of Iran, that she wore on the evening of the Coronation Day, at the opera and the ball.
10. A diamond and emerald necklace from the Crown Jewels, made by Van Cleef & Arpels for the Coronation. The necklace, mounted in platinum and gold, is composed by an enormous engraved hexagonal emerald, mounted in pendant and surrounded by diamonds of old cut, of four big square emeralds and five smaller ones, (all surrounded by diamonds), four hanging pear pearls and eleven yellow diamonds of very good size.

I think the last one was originally a necklace, belonging to Grand Duchess Elena Vladimirovna of Russia, mother off Marina, duchess of Kent (nee Princess of Greece & Denmark). Marina is here wearing it as a tiara, and she took 2 of the circles to function as earrings. I wonder who owns it now. I do not believe I hae seen either the duchess of Kent, Princess Michael or Princess Alexandra with this piece (so they probably sold it).

The date and the stones were short were not allowed not from the country to bring outside. P. A. drove 24 with the opportunity to Teheran. Starting from November 1966 it examined four days in the treasury into the crates. It was to which for many years does not open gebte it up. Starting from September 1967 the Shah and the Shahbanou the result presented.

Madame la Comtesse de Paris.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v4...a/bce41607.jpg

Her Royal Highness the Princess Adelaide Jeanne Marie d'Orleans, Madam d'Evreux, seen here wearing her late Grandmother's - Her Royal Highness the Princess Isabelle of Orléans-Braganca, Duchess of Orléans, of Valois, of Chartres, of Guise, of Vendome, of Enghien, of Penthievre, of Aumale, of Nemours and of Montpensier, Dauphine of Auvergne, Princess of Joinville, Princess of Condé, etc., titular Countess of Paris - bridal tiara.

Its an art-deco diamond & saphire tiara mounted on a base of white gold, made by Mellerio and presented to the late Comtesse by Action Francaise as a wedding present. There are three diamond Fleur de Lys shaped motiffs located at the top of the ornament. A symbol associated, and used by the Royal families of France for centuries.

Definitly one of, if not my favourite.

"MII"

Does anyone have a photo of the Tiara that Lady Churchill wore to Queen Elizabeth's Coronation? I believe she borrowed it from Lady Essex.

"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."

I agree completely, I've heard many stories about some of the "gifts" the British Royals "received".

She was born a Princess of Bavaria and she is wearing the Wittelsbach version of the Lover's-Knot tiara.

My all time favorite is the tiara Princess Margaret wore on her wedding day. I know that it was bought from another collection of royal jewels but I can't remember the country.

The photo of Princess Margaret with her father is courtesey of www.alamy.com
