Thanks Warren!

The Marlborough Tiara looks very much like one of the Russian Tiaras! It is truly a stunner!

Are yet in nationals or intrnationals auctions sales of historics or quiet historics tiaras ? or this kind of sales are "gré à gré" (means individual to an other)if they exist. For example, if for one of the news heiress princess they want make the acquisition of a new tiara, do you think it's possible that this one will be baught on the " historic " market better to be baught directly at jeweller. I am making myself this question in the hypothesis ( true hypothesis ) of Kngs of spain want to buy a new tiara fo the Princess of Asturias because the RFS not have a lot - about five for three royals , Elena wearing more often her own's - and the turn over is not very easy because one this tiaras is very "royal" the lys's flowers one and we can think that the tendance it's becomming to wear more light piece of jewellery. The best example the tiara of Las Flores.

It will be interesting to know if it is possible to buy such an ancient piece of jewellery to make a new and original one to be wearing by a princess in exercice which becomming the specific, always for example, the Princess of Asturias Tiara.

We can imagine as the Infanta Leonor will be attend at reception with the Queen, Doña Letizia, Doña Elena, Doña Christina when she will be fifteen... Help, they will lacking of this so beatiful little sparkling hat !

Ok, so I was surfing the web and I think I have found, by far, my Favorite Tiara! It's the Württemburg rococo tiara! I love it! Its incredible! Who it's owned by or even the history behind it I really don't know!:(

Here are two pictures of it:

the greatest tiaras seen together

I've put together a graphic of many of the best tiaras. It's a work in progress because I intend to add many more. original sources are Rex and Hola/Hello as well as Getty.

Well, good people,

I must confess to spending many a happy moment here drooling. I guess we have run out of tiaras we would want to look at, however in another thread, in which I have waxed acidulous they are digging up every jeweled horror that ever sat on the head of any hag in Europe. Amazing. A beautiful tiara can make just about any woman look good, a beautiful woman look out of this world and a hideous monstrosity can do the exact and terrible opposite. I have been frustrated by having tried to go to certain cites and to see the things there xxxed out for some strange reason. In any case could those of you who still have goodies hidden away in your closets, rummage around in them and see what you can post to buoy my spirits? I would be grateful. The Fife tiara, anyone, cheers. Thomas Parkman

Other than when Queen Mary had her Aunt's Tiara, the Cambridge Lovers Knot, copied, does anyone know of any other Tiara copied for another Royal/Princely House?

Thomas, we've seen the Fife, time to move on. As it seems to be our job to keep your spirits buoyed, here's another artistic work which may fit the bill. In any case, I like it. :)

A wreath of twinned sprays of leaves and flowers. Made by Cartier in 1904 entirely of brilliant-cut diamonds, the larger brilliants are free-hanging and tremble at the slightest movement of the wearer. The tiara was last owned by the late Lord Howard of Henderskelfe, but I call it 'the breaking waves tiara'.

I'm surprised it's as old as 1904; it looks very art deco to me.

Are the hanging diamonds interchageable with other jewels? You could get a whole new look by hanging pearls or rubies instead.

Michelleq - I believe the fringe tiara dating from Qn. Victoria's reign, which can be worn as a necklace, has been copied - so has the Russian Kokoshnik tiara. And although the question is about tiaras, I am fairly certiain that the large pearl and diamond "festoon" necklace owned by the BRF and often worn by the late Queen Mother and QEII, has an almost exact counterpart in the DRF, and there are photos of both QMII wearing it. I think one has a pendant and one doesn't. I think this it exists in both collections because Princess Alexandra of Denmark was given the replica when she came to England to marry Kg. Edward VII, while the original remained in Denmark. I think it has a matching brooch and earrings, but I have to check this all out.

This thread has reconfirmed my opinion that the Bonapartes should have opened a jewelry store after their empire crumbled. Eugenie & Marie-Louise had the most beautiful jewels I have ever seen

The more that I see "Granny's Tiara" on Queen Elizabeth, the more I love it. I actually prefer it without the base.

Dear Warren,

Thank you for being kind enough to put up with my obsessions. Here they just call the little men in white coats who show up with needles drawn and I start to behave myself. The Henderskelfe tiara is magnificent indeed. With regard to the subject of the Fife, I was just hoping against hope to find a recent picture of somebody actually wearing the thing. I have noticed that looking at a picture of the object and seeing it on a warm, living body is all the difference in the world. But do keep up the good work. This forum makes the world a better place. Cheers. Thomas Parkman

At last, an amethyst tiara- and on a live body. I just amethysts. But the color has to be handled with great care and discretion. The tiara on the Grand Duchess is fine but rather mediocre in my opinion. The Queen Mother Elizabeth had an amethyst one but sold it. It was a bizarre combination of lovely and 19th century dorky ugly. Cheers. Thomas Parkman
