It may be a surprise choice for some, but I really do love Princess Charlene's diamond foam tiara due to its unusual design, but I find it to be quite a nice change from a traditional tiara shape

My absolute favorite has always been Queen Wilhelmina's sapphire wedding tiara.

Sapphire-Parure |Saphire-Garnitur Juwelen des Niederlndischen Knigshaus

I know it's not generally well liked and I've read that it was rather unwieldy. I think the whole parure was just stunning.

The stones are just magnificent, but the construction of the tiara not so much. I can understand how it got its unwieldy description. Perhaps if the top tier were removed it might look better.

I'm picturing it without the top and it would be lovely. As unwieldy as they might be I'm partial to pyramid shaped tiaras(not sure how else to describe them).

Can anyone tell me which tiara Princess Alexandra is wearing in the photo where you were discussing the copy of the Queen Victoria Golden jubilee necklace? Red dress, looking away to the her right... thanks!

I don't think the Portland tiara would be classified as a royal one, since it was owned by the Dukes of Portland, but nomenclature aside, I'd give my eyeteeth for that huge stunner adorning my head. It's got all my favorite stones - diamonds, sapphires and pearls - and the circumference is just amazing; look how it entirely circles the model's head. I'd have a smug grin like that on my face as well! Hmm, well maybe more like this.

Does anyone know what happened to this tiara?
It belonged to Princess Cecilie of Greece and Denmark, the wife of Georg Donatus, Hereditary Grand Duke of Hesse.
She and her entire family - exept for one daughter - died in a plane crash in 1937.

I believe that one or two tiaras also went down in the airplane & didn't survive. I am not sure if this was one of them though.

I think the tiara was dismantled, although whether before or after Cecillie's death I couldn't say. The central star of the tiara was used in an aigrette type of setting by one of the royal ladies related to Cecilie (who presumably either bought or inherited it) although for the life of me, I can't remember who.

The Royal Order of Sartorial Splendor: Readers' Ultimate Tiaras: Pick Your Aquamarine

Even though I do love aquamarines, I am not a fan of most of these tiaras. My only favorite is the Hesse Aquamarine tiara. Some of the worst here has to be the Brazilian Aquamarine tiara, Madeleine's first tiara, and the Ligne Aquamarine tiara .
