I hope when Mary becomes Queen she hide the poppies in a good spot and never take them out again! I like different looking jewles, but the poppies are just plain ugly!

You would think that with so much to choose from, this particular 'jewel' wouldn't be seen very often.

The poppy thingy is unbelievable! The DRF don't have that many tiaras left, and when they acquire something new Queen Margrete chooses this??? I don't get it. The Queen sometimes has a strange taste.
Or was it a gift? Does anybody know?

Maybe CP Mary will take it upon herself to ahem, "alter" this horror once she is the Queen of Denmark. By altering I mean melt the thing down and start fresh with a new creation!

Or maybe she should auction it off? Some weirdo might pay enought to buy something decent instead.
Another idea: chuck them in a flower vase. They might bring an interesting sparkle to a lavish flower bouquet!

Definitely rearranging it into a slightly more conventional tiara shape would help. The craftsmanship is decent, so I think it might actually be a worth-while addition to the collection.

Now that I have seen it on it's own and not nestled in one's hair, it is Really Scary looking!! Reminds me of those creatures that live at the bottom of the ocean where it is totally black and soundless! They glow in the dark, have those spiky teeth and trailing thingies.... Sounds as though I have just written a descrption of the Poppies tiara! Yikes...

There is a tiara exibition in Denmark now and it has our 'beloved' poppies in it. Billed-Bladed posted a picture galery here: Billed-Bladet - Margrethe og de smukke diademer
Go through it and in the end you'll be glad QMII choose the poppies and not something like the lizard and bug creation!!

The last one looked like a waste paper basket.

I am very pleased to see that the poppy head ornament has its own thread, for it deserves it.

However, I don't think we should ignore the matching earrings, which are the icing on the cake. ETA No, the long-legged metal bug I've just noticed on the head contraption is the icing on the cake.

I think the poppies are so outrageously odd that they are quite wonderful, and I think Queen Margrethe must have a marvellous sense of humour to wear them. I don't think Mary could carry it off; you need to be born Royal to get away with something that's really over the top like that.

I could adore the poppies - if only seen on pictures - when you see the picture of it from the tiara exhibition, it is somehow a beautiful piece of jewellery - the closeups with the details. I do hope that it will someday be converted into something more useful. It's very yellow gold makes it a bit difficult as a headpiece but I would not rule out the possibility of one day seeing Mary using it in some new and to us royal watchers acceptable way.

I'd actually like to see Mary make use of the poppies, even if only once.

No, I'm not fond of the Poppies! But from the postings on this board (myself included) not alot of people like this one. If it's actually hers to keep, I thought maybe it would be her "Poppies" - a tiara she really likes but no one else does!
