The honeysuckle tiara can be seen on tour with "Diana, A Celebration", but I'm not sure if they display it at Althorp or not:

The Spencers also have a tiara that belonged to Marie Antionette, but I've never been able to find a picture or description of it. There was also the one that Diana's mother wore at her wedding to Viscount Althorp, but I don't know if that was a Spencer or Fermoy piece:

I would love to see the tiara once belonging to Marie Antoinette. Too bad there aren't any photos around.

What do you think?/ Perhaps a bit of photoshopping here? Cheers.
Thomas, here are some versions of the tiara:

For starters, here is the original version of the tiara, in a post by Warren

Edit #1: removed pearls from the crescents of pearls

Edit #2: removed more pearls

Edit #3: removed the top pearls

Dear Lady K,

Excellent!!! I cannot make up my mind between edit 1 and edit 2. I think edit 3 has removed too many of the pearls. The top circle of pearls is the one that created the most dramatic impact. The only problem is that we have all those empty holes in edits one and two. Would it be possible to replace the removed pearls with diamonds from somewhere???

My original reaction was to prefer edit 1, which is really quite lovely but as I looked at them I began to prefer edit number 2. Both reduce the amount of pearls, which answers my original criticism of the piece, ie too many pearls. But then I thought if you had just the right diamonds, right cut, size, etc. put in place of the pearls that had been removed they could emphasize the pearls left very well in either of the two editions. The question, which I cannot answer without such a viewing of both options is which would work better. I suspect that both would work very well indeed and one if not both would certainly be superb and a great improvement over the original. Thank you very much for your efforts. Cheers.

Why Thomas, it is quite possible! After "stealing" some diamonds from the British Delhi Durbar tiara, I have come up with an option that I believe is a definate improvement. I replaced the base row of pearls with diamonds, and added diamonds in place of the "mickey mouse" ears. Then I decided that the holes left from removing the 'swag' pearls looked too empty, so I used the leaf-shapes from this tiara to make kind of a cluster to help those holes. I hope you like it!

And I found another suggestion from Thomas, in a much earlier post:

Quote:
Dear People,
Let us not go and spoil a great thing and have the incredible Princess Mary go and ruin everything by plopping any of those poppy horrors on her gorgeous little head. She does not need to look like the original Earth Mother in Star Trek or whatever. Why should she? ...
Well, Thomas, I couldn't resist the suggestion. Although while I was doing it, there was a definate sense of eww... And of horror....

Crown Princess Mary wearing Queen Margrethe's Golden Poppies

May this be the only image of Mary wearing them

Dear Lady K,

I would offer you flowers, chocolate and jewels but since I cannot send them over the internet will you be gracious enough to accept prostrations and praise. That goodie you have concocted is just simply superb. I am starting to drool uncontrolably. Lovely indeed. You have contributed much to my happiness.

As for the Princess Mary Horror Show. What is this ,Saturday Night Live?? You might as well have put the good woman in a thong as that thingie. She looks like the bride of Dracula lacking only the fangs to complete the effect. But then I would gladly play the role of Dracula as I am totally besotted, like her husband, lucky man, with the marvelous Princess Mary. Some Men have all the luck. Cheer.s

Thomas, thank you very much for the praise!

You made me laugh out loud (literally)- and since I'm in my studio (class starts as soon as my Professors show up) I just got a few odd looks.

Lady K, dear heart,

All you have to do is go through the worst jewels thread and pick out my nutcase postings with illustrations, collect them all together and show them to all and sundry and they will UNDERSTAND completely. They will also have the little men in white suits with needles drawn and the padded cell on wheels in reserve on standby just waiting for me. I will be running down the street and hiding in the trees, under bushes, in car trunks for dear life. Ah, here we go again. But really if you have not purused the worst jewels thread you haven't lived. In that one I have tried the patience of the noble Warren and co. sorely. Cheers.

The Princess Mary horror just gets worse the more I look at it. It is like eating catfish stew. If you have been able to gag down a mouthful just to be polite, it doesn't go away. It just gets worse and worse. And the Empress Eugenie thing just gets better and better. So there you are. Nothing lukewarm here now is there??? cheeers.

(I think it will look even more "massive" now in her short hair...)
