If you two would be kind enough to stop bickering, it would be greatly appreciated. I think you've both made your point, so it's time to drop it.

Here's another to manipulate, on the condition that everyone plays nice.

Dear People,

This is the honeycomb tiara I think. It is an unfortunate case where thay should have left well enough alone. It orginally belonged to the Empress Marie of Russia who made the massive but inadvertant mistake of giving birth to Nicholas II. In the original version the central figure was originally a large sapphire. After her death Queen Mary with her gimlet eye for such things proceeded to buy it and the sapphire was removed. the jeweled segment that you see was put in its place. It was then given to her daughter in law Alice, the Duchess of Glouchester. At some point the central jeweled segment was replaced with a kunzite and lately has that has been replace with an emerald, I believe. It is however a lovely thing. Cheers. Thomas Parkman

Dear Members,

upon meditating further upon the honeycomb tiara, which is of course a masterpiece in any case, why not really beat Queen Mary at her own game. could one of you technically competent computer people be so kind as to haul the Hope Diamond out of cyberspace and put that in place of the central jeweled pattern, which is detachable in any case. Queen Mary put the Cullinanan V there, I believe, That massive and gorgeous jewel is now part of a fantastic broach. Cheers. Thomas Parkman

Mashed, I love your work with Queen Mary's Amethyst Tiara!! They are wonderful, and ever so beautiful! Thanks for your hard work! If Elizabeth still had the tiara in her possession, it would look wonderful on her, it would really stand out against her white hair!

I have to admit I can't draw much inspiration from the above tiara, but was reading the CP Vicotrias Jewellry thread and thought her first tiara could use a bit of a 'overhaul' if you will.
The unretouched photo, Originally posted in CP Victoria's Jewellry thread #1 by Josefine


The photoshopped version, cropped and editted by myself , sorry as its a bit bodgy but I just don't have the dedication to produce near perfect pictures. Diamond base, diamond prong bits, diamond centre, and alternative blue sapphire and yellow sapphire tips

Mashed, can you tell me where to get the full picture for this amethyst parure? Thanks!

The original pic of the amethyst parure had to be removed because it had been directly attached to the Forums. All images in the Royal Jewels Forums (and in all non Current Events threads) must be hosted via one of the free image-hosting sites such as Photobucket, Imageshack etc. Hotlinking to images on other websites is a no-no under any circumstances.

thanks,
Warren

Wow. I gotta say, some of you guys are totally amazing in Photoshop! I'm in design school and I work in Photoshop and Illustrator all the time, and I know how tricky it can be to get it "right" and looking real. And for you with the swedish tiara, and anyone else reading this thread, just keep playing with Photoshop- you will get better every time. Also, you should check out Adobe's website for more tips. However, your attempt was pretty good. Keep it up! And the rest of you- keep posting more tiaras! I'm going to get off my little behind going and finish the one I've been working on.

You are all very talented! Is interesting to see the adaptations on their heads, although I think the Hope Diamond should stay away from Queen Elizabeth's head since it's associated with bad luck. Wasn't it owned in another incarnation by Marie Antoniette?

Yes, as a matter of fact it was. During the French Revolution the thing was stolen and reappeared years later in a reduced size in order to disguise the fact of what it actually was. It had originally been bought by Louis XIV I believe. Somebody did a wonderful study in which the examined the stone as it is today and demonstrated just how it had been whacked down to size from the origninal. As for bad luck, the BRF has the Koh I Nor (sp???) and we need not go into their bad luck. That would start world war IV around here.

As for the second posting by Wymanda, I was wondering if perhaps you should remove the smaller sapphires. The idea is a wonderful one, but I could not help but wondering if it might not be too much of a good thing. But where on earth did you find that tiara. it is gorgeous. I would like to have one for myself. Then the little men in white coats would show up and carry me off to the home sure enough. Cheers. Thomas

As far as I know, the Koh i Noor is supposed to be unlucky only when worn by men, which is why it's in the Queen Consort's crown rather than in the Imperial State Crown (which was made for George VI).
