Ah, the noble Lady K strikes again. Marvelous. But if you consult the Bible, ie Mr. Munn's magnum (in the original meaning of the word, big, massive) opus you will see that the actual tiara is smaller than you have presented it. But still it is a delight, unfortunately owned probably by the greedy Viscount Linley and therefore you maybe sure it will never adorn the head of Camilla of the interesting past. It will probably be sold to some Chinese industrialist or Korean automobile magnate and willl disappear forever.

And, no, I haven't a clue as to what profile pictues are either. Cheeers.

Any chance we might get to see the DoC with the Kokoshnik on, or with a tiara made out of the Saudi rubies when you get the time?

Turquoise is very becoming to Camilla. If any of the Grey Men are reading, please advise PoW to find the Duchess a turquoise tiara.

Since turquoise is not that expensive, (take a gander at the prices of sapphires and particularly rubies, Lord Help You) and throw in a few diamonds and Charles should be able to expend the quid to get a complete parure. the thing of the Duchess of Glouchester is a lovely goodie indeed. Perhaps our resident Photoshopping Goddess could whisk that onto the head of Camilla by ways of comparison. cheers.

I think that Camilla looks fantastic in the tiara--nice work, Lady K. I agree, you deserve a higher ranking title--
Now, I was looking around and found a tiara that I have always felt looked a little awkward--its beautiful, but I would like to see it a little less big--Lady K, what do you think about playing with the nine prong tiara that Queen Silvia wears???

Well, I got a few minutes to tinker with Queen Sonja's Nine-Prong tiara. I came up with two new tiaras by simply splitting the tiara into two.

The first tiara uses the top portion of the original tiara (the swags and top diamonds) and the diamond band. I then lowered the overall height of the swags (because otherwise it'd just look ridiculous). It's much more modest than the original.

The second tiara uses the lower portion of the Nine-Prong tiara (the sunrays and wave motif). It's amazing how different it can look from the original by just taking off the swags and diamond clusters! I also shank the sunrays down just a little bit so they are more proportionate to the rest of the tiara. I really like this one.

Lady K, I can't pull anything up--I'm clicking on the link, and then I'm lost.

But, while I'm here, what do you think of this delectable, cough cough, piece? Can you improve it??

There is no hope for it- just take it apart and start over.

Thank you for fixing! I have to say that the second tiara was what I had in mind for a change--but the first tiara looks fantastic too! LadyK, what a fantastic job you've done!
Does anyone know how large that central diamond is in this tiara??? It's quite big.

And, LadyK--I loved your response about Lilian's necklace--no hope for the hopeless. I totally agree---and you have proved that it is unsalvagable as it is!

That's it's name! Thank you Marengo, I couldn't remember.

I really wish this tiara was part of the Danish collection. It would look just wonderful on Mary. The Dutch royal women are so lucky to have the pieces they do.

Well IMO the Danish collection is prettier than the Dutch one, the Dutch just have more, bigger stones but awfull designs usually.

Sadly most of Anna's jewels went to her daughter in Weimar. This is the only piece the Dutch RF has left though the stones of the saphire parure come from Anna too. Anna was a lucky woman btw, her jewels got stolen ones, she received a new collection from her hubby and brother, after that the old ones were found back and she ended up with a double collection.

---------

The fringe looks good on Camilla btw, as does the Lovers Knot, a pity she can't wear that one!

I would agree the Danish collection is prettier, however, the Dutch have more to play with.

Mary only has her wedding tiara/necklace and the Desiree parure. The wedding tiara is much more agreeable as a necklace and the parure we see but only once a year.
