Ahh, a lady after my own heart. Coco Chanel was also an advocate of the "if in doubt, add a little more jewellery" school of thought when it came to accessorising an ensemble. However, due to the essentially classic nature of the Bandeau tiara I think it would be a mistake to pair it with a contemporary statement necklace, they're too clunky. If the tiara were worn with a simple diamond necklace (composed of gems of reasonable size ) the effect would be stunning.

This may not be the correct name for the tiara, but my all time favorite is the one Stars & Crescent tiara owned by Princess Mary Adelaide of Teck. She worn it at the wedding of Princess Mary to the Duke of York

A wonderful choice (check out my avatar). I love the Teck Crescent Tiara--I hope we see it again.

Thank you!
Didnt Queen Mary get the tiara?
I purchased a book on royal wedding when I was in London this summer and it had a picture from Queen Mary's wedding - Princess Mary Adelaide far outside everyone there, including the bride!
She was just so regal! She and Queen Louise of Denmark

Queen Mary did indeed get the tiara as well as the Teck Circle Necklace (both pieces were worn by Mary Adelaide at May's wedding). Queen Mary also got the Cambridge emeralds (which became the stunning emerald parue!) which were originally left to her brother; however, he had foolishly given them to his mistress. When he died, Mary demanded they be returned to the family and got them. I love Queen Mary--she's a delightful character in history.

I like how the Teck Crescent Tiara has evolved since May's wedding. Queen Mary did that piece a big favor when she removed that double row base of diamonds. In its present form it reminds me of the beautiful amethyst tiara of Queen Silvia's.

I remember that story about Queen Mary and the emeralds - good for her! Im not sure sure I wouldnt do the same thing if my brother did that.

Queen Mary altered several pieces of jewelry before she passed them on to her various daughters in law, etc....
I guess to pass on tradition, yet keep her style immortal.

I think the Baden Fringe tiara is quite possibly the prettiest fringe tiara I've ever seen. And, the cut steel tiara fascinates me! The story of Queen Sylvia finding it in a cupboard is astounding.

The tiara, made of steel in an intricate cut and set in gilded brass, is Napoleonic but how exactly it found its way to Sweden and through whom is quite unclear.
This kind of jewelry (it’s actually a whole parure, with matching choker necklace and earrings added later) was popular in the beginning of the 19th century, when it first became possible to cut steel in such a fine way. But when this fashion faded, many of the pieces of its kind were dismantled, so this is really a rather unique piece.
The amazing story about Queen Silvia finding it by chance happens to be true. At one point, the tiara must simply have been mislaid and forgotten – there are no pictures of any Swedish Queen wearing it, which adds to the mystery.
Sometime after her marriage, Queen Silvia simply went through some dusty Stockholm Palace chest of drawers, only to find the cut steel tiara sitting there - fascinating indeed. The tiara was subsequently restored, and Silvia wore it for the first time in 1979.
The central ears of wheat motifs are actually set ‘en tremblant’, meaning they move slightly at every movement of the wearer’s head.
It's my second favorite tiara on CP Victoria, after the Baden fringe – I don’t care much for the fringe design as such, but IMO this is the most beautiful one around, its proportions are simply perfect.

I know the Rundell tiara of Queen Alexandra has not been seen in years, but what happened to the matching necklace? I saw a post that it went to the Queen Mum but have not seen any photo of her wearing it, or any other information.

It didn't "go" to the Queen Mum, it actually goes to the Queen--the Queen Mum just never gave it back!!

Princess Mathilde looks beautiful no matter what
I just wish she had another tiara hopefully we'll something soon; it's kinda pitiful how few substantial jewels she has--but she always looks impeccable and I think she is simply wonderful!

I assume that this beautiful piece of history is now back with the Queen? At least I hope so. I would hate to see that one dismantled!

The pictures of Queen Fawzia have been removed.
I don't enjoy deleting images of fabulous jewels but if they are subject to copyright it is illegal and against the Forum rules to post them directly to the Forums.

One of my favourite tiara is this tiara by Van Cleef and Arpels, ordered for the Shah to his wife Fawzia in ¿1939? for their wedding:
