Check it out!

Hi! I'm still a newbie at posting so I hope I don't make a mistake

I'm not a huge fan of the Saudi rubies, but I couldn't resist trying to see what they'd look like as a tiara.

Flip it upside down & pop that baby on a frame...sure would be a humdinger!

Check it out? It's impossible to miss! I'm speechless!
That's one way of announcing your arrival in the Forums pizzo - welcome!

Camilla's whopper tiara reminds me of something that Barbara Hutton once wore. I doubt this style of jewelled head ornament will be up for a revival any time soon.

Well done, Pizzo, and welcome abroad. Great job, though I have to confess she is looking a bit like a parrot (wrong colours though!)

I have often thought that the necklace could be converted into a tiara. Perhaps a Kokoshnik style tiara? Would your photoshop skills extend to that?

Is that meant to be read as " I hope this style...."??

I tried a little more tweaking. How'd I do? Gosh this is addicting. I'm going to go to sleep dreaming about which jewels I want to change next.

I think I like this one the most of the 3 I made:

Here is another version:

I wonder if the Duchess would be interested in some suggestions.

I've often wanted to send a suggestion over to the Swedish Royal Family about those ol' buttons/rosettes.

There was a beautiful version of them photoshopped into the Portland tiara somewhere on TRF. With the upcoming wedding, it would be a great time to work some magic with them, eh?

Great photoshopping skills! This is certainly the version I liked the most. I wondered if you could make the tiara a bit more upright - like a circlet, without necessarily going all the way around? Thank you

Wonderful, terrific, stunning, amazing, I'm gobsmacked! Perhaps just a tad too high, but then, what's a cm or two here or there between fellow jewellry addicts.

I agree on you preference. What a way to start off on the board. Welcome oh twinkle-fingered one!

The ruby necklace converted to tiara looks simply wonderful. Camilla will probably prefer to wear it a bit more upright, like her other tiaras.

Oooo...lovely. Is that the Giorgio Armani gown Anne Hathaway wore to the Oscars this year?

It looks great with the necklace

A quick photoshop of the Princess of Asturias. Not the best, but it's not too bad.

Great job, did you use the Swedish fringe tiara?

Oh My God!!! Camilla looks like a prize peacock. I have always said that contraption is a study in excess. I agree that the stones are gorgeous but the whole thing needs to be reworked. Perhaps a kokoshnick with some kind of necklace with space as well as jewels with of course earings, etc. Cheers.

I am ready to toss all those vulgar Russian apparatachiks into the dustbin of history. Just think what was lost. Of which that photo is but the merest suggestion of what the Bolshevik lunatics did to long suffering Russia and indeed the world. Marvelous Madame Royale, simply marvelous.
