Aarg! Not for a wedding, pleeeaaaseee!!! But it's in the British Museum, so I daresay that Meghan is pretty save.

I still find it hard to make up my mind whether Meghan will get her own tiara or wear the lozenge bandeau. But of the Brit tiaras, the lozenge certainly is my first choice. It would look great on her, and it would not be so much associated with QEQM. That would make it a great choice for the bride of a younger son.

Now that Beetle Tiara is something else...how grand that could be with the right dress!

I just wonder (and it's a sickening thought really) how many grand tiaras (and other jewelry sets) were broken up over the last 100 or so years.

I'm still in mourning over the Nyzam of Hyderabad tiara:

The Royal Order of Sartorial Splendor: Tiara Thursday: The Nizam of Hyderabad Tiara

Would love to see Meghan or Kate in this one!

If we get the key Missjersey I'll let you know...or maybe we can call on the Kingsmen to get us in by stealth?

We can only hope the Lozenge is still intact...that is one of the better ones I've seen.

I posted before that I think that if the Strathmore Rose Tiara was modified to add a jewel base like what is on the Teck Crescent Tiara that would be a fantastic enhancement!

That would look great on either of the gals for sure Pranter! The beetle I just like the color. Anyway I’ll just sit back and await that blasted key. To sit on the floor and spread out all the baubles oh my! It’s fun to imagine what’s inside.

I agree..the S.R. would look better with a jewel base.

Really like the Teck Crescent Tiara in that picture.

Still, both are a lot methinks for a first tiara. I'm still holding out for a hair jewel that can 'look like' a tiara.

Yeah the Oriental is a lot of tiara for a first time...and the Teck Crescent is just lovely..that might be an option if Camilla has 'returned' it. I prefer that to the Strathmore Rose.

Are you talking about like a snood that is jeweled?

Hadn't thought of that. Thinking more a large hair jewel that covers part of the head maybe, or weaves into the hair.

None of these in this link are what I am envisioning but along these lines: https://www.etsy.com/market/bridal_hair_jewelry

I have already picked out her dress and it would look great without a veil, but with hair up and a simple tiara (maybe with flowers matched to her bouquet).

Queen Mary had at least 2 aigrettes that have not been seen since she was Duchess of York. I always wondered what happened to them.

I am sorry but the idea she is going to forego a tiara for a floral wreath ala 1980's/boho chiq

The message that will be sent to many if Meghan doesn't have some tiara 'The queen was forced to accept her. She is not fully welcome in the family. The divorcee was refused a tiara' and so on and so on. I don't see Meghan being the one to break the tiara tradition in the family.

A hair jewel would be pretty. She could clip the veil off. I would imagine the veil would have a comb or hidden barrette

No, no, no. Shades of Fergie's hairnets and giant bows.

The link was just to give the idea, I am thinking something far more substantial. If she did a hair jewel then there could be a veil, like some that fan out from the up-do, but I'm thinking no veil for her, especially if she gets a tiara.

I see Meghan as a woman of the world, not a 'blushing bride'. Something simple but definitely elegant, simple and lush at the same time to befit the venue and the circumstance. But not fussy, no veil: that would be a show-stopper! . But without a veil she'd have to have a really nice (but not overwhelming) tiara. IMO.

Ah, now there is an idea, though I wouldn't want to see Meghan going for a retro look.

https://www.chaumet.com/news/a-story-of-aigrettes

Wouldn't it be fun if Meghan dug into her ethnicity and came up with something unique for her head piece? Harry has given fair warning that things will be different. They are a couple who will not be in line-of-sight of the throne. They could do some interesting things.

How I would love for her not to be predictable! Elegant, tasteful, but unique!

Endless possibilities.

I'd be pretty surprised if she wasn't wearing a veil too...a very sheer one maybe.

Maybe. That would work. It all depends on the dress. Depends on a lot.

How would you say the decision making will be driven? I'd say her headpiece preference (tiara, veil) will drive the dress (train, fit, volume) will drive the accessories. I give this sequence because the tiara-or-no-tiara is a main component.

If the dress/train is the major component, then of course it drives the headpiece/veil.

Another option for Meghan would be an American tiara. Around the time people refer to as the Gilded age, plenty of American ladies had tiaras.

President McKinley's wife's tiara was a winged diamond thing. Diamond wings.

Because of the popularity of a certain Wagner opera, jewelers started making winged tiaras and aigrettes.

For Meghan, it would be great if some big-shot came across with a boffo socko American tiara. Like that emerald one by Paulding Farnham. I see her as an emerald lady.

Here’s a thought How about she knows she doesn’t want to wear a tiara and is offered one by HM, I doubt she’d say no thanks.
