Elspeth, Most Noble,

Yes, the legend is that if a man wears the thing it will bring death, destruction and damnation. However given the luck or should I say the press of the BRF in recent years I am not so sure that legend applies only to the men. Being the fervent monarchist, and an American one at that, you can imagine my opinion of the British press. However to put that in print here would violate the rules, and God Forbid that I should open my very large logorreahic mouth, stick my size 9 and 1/2 foot in it and violate any of the rules. Warren would have a fit, and I am trying my best to be on my best behaviour. But it is hard. Cheers. Thomas Parkman

Everybody is great at this! Tiara manipulation is fun i think. you can add, remove, change the color of stones etc. here's my version of the above tiara with sapphires instead of emeralds and I also thought the middle portion could make a nice brooch:

Bravo mashed! You've done it again. I love it, I can't wait to see more from you. I have a request....could you possibly do something with the Sophie Wessex wedding tiara, it's horrible IMO. Is there anything you can do to it to make it look more attractive?:)

Not that the talents of our fellow contributors are without merit, but it would take a Photoshop Yoda to do anything with that pitiful excuse for a jewel. I keep thinking it was a cruel practical joke played on Sophie by The Queen, although not as cruel as the one played by Edward with that awful pearl necklace . Maybe I should take this rant over to the "Worst Royal Jewels' thread...

If anyone has a good picture of this tiara, i can sure try. it might be a difficult one though but let's give it a shot.

mashed, this was the only front view I could get, I'm not sure if it's big enough for you. Maybe Warren can get a better picture of it.

Wow - thanks so much for all your pics. These are awesome.

I don't suppose anyone would like to take a stab at improving Queen Elizabeth's Brazilian Aquamarine parure?

IMO the Swedish Ruby Tiara looks good on nobody and unfortunately it's destined for Princess Madeleine . {Deleted response to deleted post - Elspeth} Why doesn't Mathilde have another tiara? The Floral Wreath one is beautiful but she's going to be the next Queen of Belgium! I think that warrants her at least another tiara .

Yes! Did you just get rid of the top half of the tiara? A vast improvement if I say so myself.... Thanks, wymanda!

Not being to good at this myself I didn't attempt the other idea I had which was to augment the existing tiara into a kokoshnik shape. Perhaps "Mashed Potatoes" or "Thomas Parkman" would take on that challenge?

Queen Fabiola is free to do whatever she wants with her jewels, as they do not belong to any foundation and are all her personal property. The Queen is close to various nieces(in-law), like Marie-Astrid of Austria, Marguerite of Liechtenstein, Astrid, Mathilde and her own spanish nieces of course. The most logical thing is that she will leave the most substantial parts, like the floral tiara/coronet, to the main line of the RF (Mathilde/Elisabeth) while she will give other ladies some of the smaller items, but this is pure speculation.

But Fabiola is still going strong (for a long time to come I hope) so I hope to see the floral tiara in coronet version on her head very soon (she doesn't wear tiara's very often anymore these days), maybe during the dutch state-visit.
