Photoshopping Royal Tiaras and Jewels 1 (to Feb 2007)

Artists and jewellers in the Netherlands created tiaras for Maxima Zorreguieta in honor of her of marriage to Crown Prince Willem-Alexander. How would some of you like to create a tiara in honor of Mary Donaldson? I know we have many talented artists who will be more than up to the challenge!

What will inspire you? Will Denmark inspire you? Will Mary's Scottish heritage serve as a muse to your creations? Or will Mary's former homeland spark some marvelous ideas?

Julia and I were thinking that it would be fun for our fellow posters to create some tiaras for the Season. Put your Photoshop to work and let the snow and ice and the winter holidays be your inspiration!

Here's my version of a winter tiara. I started with the Youssopov tiara whose body is made of rock crystal (the "ice"). Then I added pearls (the "snow"). Would look good on a dark-haired beauty such as Mary or Victoria.

Queen Mary's Amethyst Tiara

I realize that this tiara is part of the parure that is now out of QE2's hands. The necklace is being sold on sj phillips but here, i just had some fun altering the tiara for modern day, if the queen was still to wear it.

original


revised


revised and worn by QE2

Dear Mashed,

some of your ideas do not work all that well, but number two or especially number four work very well indeed. Could you figure out a way to stick in some sapphires or rubies, BTW??? I originally thought rubies would be lovely, now I tend to a lovely blue thrown in would work nicely. Cheers. Thomas Parkman

Thomas, be nice! It's photoshopping, not advanced jewellery design. :)
mashed potatoes has put a lot of time and effort in creating these images for our members' enjoyment, and then mastered the art of hosting via Photobucket.
Credit where it's due.

I completely agree with this comment, thank-you mashed potatoes for some of the dseigns they are stunning, I especially like the amethyst one on sophie.

Futhermore, even if it where advanced jewellery design, mashed potatoes is much further ahead in the class than whoever designs Queen Elizabeth's Aquamarine Tiara

My first real photoshopping attempt.

Mashed Potatoes, you inspired me, no idea how you make yours look so professional though. Its dodgy, but fun doing it

The Ancona Tiara
Shortened both horizontally and vertically (much easier for me to manage that way) , Pearls removed, Diamond base, Sapphire centres

(Image courtesy of Getty and Warren)

And yes I'm very aware its dodgy, but :p I'm just not that artistic. Apologies for the double post too

Thank you for your kind support Warren and Justi.
You have given me the strength and the courage to continue on

By the way Warren, your tiara is FAN-TA-BU-LOUS!!!

Dear Mashed,

Now you have hit it. The amethyst thingee is just the thing indeed. Lovely. Could you send it to me COD????. Besides you must not be overly sensitive-yes, these artist types I know. But haven't you ever heard of constructive criticism??? As they used to say of Winston Churchill, he had 100 ideas a day of which 4 of them were good ones. 4 good ideas a day is a lot. Or as I like to say, "sticks and stones may break my bones, but chains and whips excite me!!!" Cheers. Thomas Parkman

Dear TP,

There's "constructive criticism", and then there is "rude and inconsiderate".
If there's two other people (like Warren and Justi) that think you need to be nice, then just be nice and leave it at that.

For example in the previous post, you could have stopped at "...could you send it to me COD". Neither chains nor whips excite me, thank you.

Anyways, anybody else have another tiara to work on?
