Thanks LaRae, that might explain why I'm unfamiliar with them. That leaves the filigree bandeau as the best choice IMO.

Well except the Filigree bandeau is one of the ones taken apart or sold...and it's suspected the same for the Lozenge Bandeau.

Ah, that makes even more sense, if they haven't been seen in public in recent history I'm not that aware of them. I don't like dismantling jewelry to make other pieces, so once I read this has happened I pretty much erase that piece from my memory banks.

I really don't think the Crescent is appropriate for a wedding, but that is again JMO. I guess I revert to thinking she should either wear a newly acquired tiara or keep it simple and streamlined and have no tiara at all.

They haven't been seen in public in decades...since the 60's I think.

Most likely options are the Papyrus or the Teck, we know they are still intact and don't seem to be attached to any specific woman in the BRF. Kate's main tiara seems to be the Lover's Knot and Camilla wears the big tiaras.

I can't imagine she won't wear a tiara of some kind. I just don't expect it to be a large one.

Sorry to get OT, but if anyone should wear a (repaired) Strathmore tiara I feel it should be Princess Eugenie, her resemblance to the Queen Mum has always struck me and I think QEQM would definitely approve.

Yep, I did not include a quote but I was replying to a comment that QEII has worn the tiara / necklace and she has not. Also do we know that it is a Queen only tiara other than through deductive reasoning, i.e., there are no pictures of it being worn by a non-Queen.

There's actually a thread for Eugene's tiara (what will she wear)!

If a piece of jewellery has been has been left to the Monarchy but designated as for the Queen's use only, whether she wears it or not is is irrelevant. But, in this case she does.

It did and does. But what about poor Sophie's mishmash created tiara? Even for a third son's wife, that thing is just plain ugly although Sophie still chooses to wear it on occasion.

Would this antique tiara work as a bridal tiara?

No, because it has colored stones.

The colored stones are so tiny, I doubt it would really be a consideration.

But it is not the most attractive tiara I have ever seen. And the shape, with the points, wouldn't work well with a veil, unless veil at the back of the head (no blusher) really.

Looking at that tiara makes me think coronation or beauty pageant more than royal wedding.

Its not an antique tiara, was made in 2017.

Real solid gold antique diamond tiara. Available for hire.

The company hires out tiaras for weddings, photos shoots, events, movies

You can wear the tiara for 900 pounds.

Tbh I prefer the shape of Kokoshnik type tiaras to most others, really. They are quite simple but still diamond studded, go with any gown or other piece of jewellery, and with most hairstyles. And they don't have fiddly designs with flowers, arches, loops etc, though of course variety in everything is great. I don't know whether they are hard to wear, but personally I would be quite happy if Meghan had a Kokoshnik style tiara bought for her.

Unless we are talking the fringe style kokoshniks the British royals have, the kokoshnik style certainly has a great deal of design worked into it. Often flowers, leaves and so on.

Like the beautiful Danish kokoshnik which was sold in 2014. Stunning.

Tiara Mania: Countess of Rosenborg's Garnet Kokoshnik

My favorite though is the Swedish aquamarine one though.

Yes, sorry for not being specific! I meant the fringe style, but I agree the Danish one is gorgeous.

That is a lovely design (the Garnet Kokoshnik) but I'm not fan of the garnets.
