Great job mims! Its lovely to see MM in those larger tiara's. I can't wait to see her one day wearing Sonja's tiara's. Maybe Sonja will lend one to her soon.
Mathilde looks great in the lovers knot tiara. Aren't there many versions of the lovers knot? Maybe the Belgian Royal Family can get their hands on one.

The second one is that princess Mary's ruby tiara? I think it would look great on Maxima. One of my favourite tiaras on one of my favourite princesses!

Today the world has embraced new royal Princesses in the form of Mary of Denmark and Maxima of the Netherlands. But it's questionable whether even these hugely popular, increasingly glamorous future Queens will ever capture the world's imagination in the same way as Diana.
As Mario acknowledges: "She really was a true Princess".

Well, good people, it is most interesting to see these tiaras on different people and the different effects that they produce. To my surprise I see that Maxima actually comes off best in pure diamonds rather than things with colour. Again the ruby parure which I think is one of the finest concoctions in creation does not create the same effect as it does on the person of the sublime Princess Mary. I am most grateful for seeing the diamond jewels in a format which actually communicates at least some of the effect, dare I say magic that they have in reality, particulary the rose tiara of QM Elizabeth. Of course the Essex is magnificent. I would quibble about the sapphire tiara as I understand it is quite small and would not appear as large as it does in the photo creation above. But then since I am hooked on sapphires who am I to argue.

I do wish somebody would get ahold of the Westminister thinges and plop then on the heads of these most delectible royal ladies to see how they look. I just wish the spinel tiara had been set with blue sapphires instead. But one cannot have everything. Now y'all will kindly excuse me while I go off in a corner somewhere and psychologically speaking drool. Ah such crude vulgarity. cheers. Thomas Parkman

Custom dictates that a young woman should not wear a tiara until her wedding day. On that day she would wear her own family tiara and then wear her husbands family tiara or any that she has been given as wedding presents from that time on.

Mims-the photoshops of Maxima and Mary are fantastic, thank you!!!!! Would it be too much to ask you to put the Harcourt diamond tiara on Mary and Maxima if you have time? I think they both would look wonderful in it and I'd love to see it on someone, It's one of my very favorite tiaras of all time!

Dear members of the photoshopping persuasion:

In another thread I was once again presented with the website for the Duke of Westminster, which contains the fabulous Bagration tiara among other delights and wonders. It also contains at least one horror: to wit, a montrous pearl contraption. I was looking at it and thinking what a waste of perfectly fantastic big pearls. They must be worth a fortune. It then occurred to me that what they needed to do was to invert the top row of peals which are drop shaped gems instead of round ones. I do not know the technical name of them.

As I am a compter mongoloid and chocolate addict and am incapable of anything technical or indeed non-technical, if one of you good and capable people would be so kind as to look into this and see what changes could be made and then post them so that we may all either go into spasms of delight or groan at the horror of it I would be grateful. It seems to me that while the results may be just as hideous as the original they could probably only be an improvement and would certainly allow you to indulge in your most delightful hobby. Besides we could then ring up the D of W and tell him that it is the consensus of informed opinion that his pearl tiara stinks and this is what he needs to do to change it. Cheers.

Dear Thomas,

A half hearted attempt at inverting the top pearl sections of the Westminster nightmare confirmed that it is indeed unfortunate looking in either direction. In fact, inverted looks worse, if that is possible. Open a large box of imported confections and lament on what could have been with those marvelous jewels. So sorry to disappoint.
