I am inclined to agree with jcbcode99 re the Lover's Knot. Lovely tiara as it was, it is probably one that would work best for a younger royal. That said, I think it is unlikely that William's wife will be wearing it. I would have thought that the BRF would want to avoid drawing too many parallels between Diana and what would have been her daughter-in-law.

It is possible that Charles or William may decide that Harry's wife could have the tiara. However, that too is unlikely because I am sure they would want such a major piece of jewellery within the hands of the monarch / future monarchs. I suspect Harry's wife will end up with a new tiara, without too much family history.

Which really is a pity don't you think. Why in the world do people insist on drawing jewelry into their hangups and past history??? Talk about guilt by asssociation. It really is ridiculous. Magnificent though it is it is just jewelry, for goodness sake!!!

Advance apologies to all as this would belong on the Photoshop thread but as it was requested here:

this is closer to scale on the tiara, thanks Countess

Queen Margrethe with the scarab necklace--couldn't quite get the perspective right but still enough to give you an idea of how it would look:

Still better than that golden poppy headress

Actually, although, I hate that tirara and necklace, on Princess Lillian, whi has such incredible bearing and style, it doesn't look as bad as it does on QEII. On her it looks like large gumdrop, plopped on her head and around her neck.

I was just thinking the same thing (well, maybe not the gumdrop, but pretty much everything else)--it looks really good on Lilian--but then again, the scale is a little smaller than in real life. I was surprised it could look good!

However, the gold net flowers thing--well, it looks like a bunch of growths on Princess Lilian's head. BRAVO--that's pretty much the idea behind the piece I would imagine!

Well good people, the aquamarine colour goes wonderfully with Princess Lillian. The tiara needs to be redisgned and seem not quite so bulky or awkward or even gangly ????. The tiara should be smaller scale but still in an art deco style. I do not know quite how. The gemstones themselves are wonderfull.

As for my other suggestion-plopping the poppy horror on anybody is to say the least most unking. It looks like poor Lillian as tumours growing out of her head. And the scarab horror is just that and even MII's grandeur cannot redeem it.

But thanks to those most willing souls who again have indulged my raving insanities. Cheers.

Wymanda, that looks pretty good! It gave me an idea--how about the pink drops on the Grand Duchess Vladimir tiara of QEII's? We've seen various circle tiaras with emerald, pearls, and aquamarines--these pink sapphires may be very lucious with such a piece.

Cool

Princess Lillian would look beatiful with an aquamarine tiara, especially one designed especially for her. The light blue gems against her silver hair is very attractive.

I was reading the 'How much is too much' thread, and I was wondering if anyone could deck a younger royal (perhaps CP Victoria) out ala Queen Mary style?

TIA :)

A tiara for Princess Stephanie

A request to the talented & creative members of this thread - please would you provide Princess Stephanie with a tiara (preferably one that Gace wore) as I don't think it is going to happen anywhere other than in cyberspace
And, if your creative juices are still flowing, perhaps have a go at Charlene Wittstock - or should I just sit & wait for that

I agree--Emma in the amethyst tiara is really beautiful! She looks good in them all, but I love this particular style on her. It suits her--

Wymanda, I love your creation! I really wish that were a real tiara! Those stones are so pretty. Where did you cut them from?

Also, I like the photoshops of Emma in all the tiara's. I hope Carl and Emma marry soon so we can see those in real life!

I know it may seem rude of me, and this is not intended to be offensive in anyway, but Emma Pernald looks much too common, imo. She just doesn't possess the royal X factor.

That's some great photoshopping though...
