The tiara with Cullinans III and IV, as well as the Cambridge Emeralds is just overwhelming; I much prefer the current design.
The version with the Cullinan V is very nice though.

The photo of Queen Mary wearing that version of the Delhi Durbar diadem is genuine, authentic and the real deal. The photoshopped image is not.

It is necessary to differentiate between photoshopped images and original photographs because more than once photoshopped images posted on the internet (including here at TRF) have reappeared at a later date with claims of being authentic photographs. This impacts the accuracy, reliability and credibility of the historical record of which these Forums form a part. It is therefore vitally important that photographs which have been digitally altered by software programs including Photoshop are clearly identified as such.
Thanks a lot for the explanation, Warren.

Beautiful work; the fringe tiara looks stunning and I like the ruby pendant suspended from the necklace. The stomacher is magnificent.

Apparently she used both stones, and just the square Cullinan IV, at different times. As I said in my earlier post, Queen Mary seemed to prefer dripping in jewels- I would too if I had access to a collection like that!
That's over the top even by Queen Mary standards!

Amazing work, Madame Royale! You really do have a way with photoshop.
Really like Cartier tiara on Letizia; it suits her face and hairstyle. The diamond collet gives a very Queen Mary-ish finish.

I must say Stephanie looks really good.
Is that tiara part of the Luxembourg family?

It is the Queen Astrid emerald choker. Part of the Grand Ducal jewellery collection.

Both tiaras look good on Stephanie! Can't wait to see what she'll wear on her wedding day and in the future!

I must admit, this thread has been fun to go through while waiting to see what would happen w/the Election south of the border. Regardless of what many in my local rural area of Canada may think, what happens in the US *does* affect Canada. Anyway...

I am amazed by the various treatments by respective members around here just how good Letizia looks in the more massive/substantial tiaras of the Spanish RF. W/her facial features, I would have completely said other wise, but they really do suit her, don't they?

Here's my request...I adore my Birthstone of Opal, but it just doesn't seem to be loved by the Royals very much. Your Mission should you accept it ...Give some of the Tiaras that have large stones other than Diamond the Opal treatment, then figure out on which Royal lady it would look the best on. I have no preference on which lady you should choose, so long as someone picks up the gauntlet I've just thrown down.

Especially as I think it could be a lot of fun just to see what you talented people can come up w.

That sounds very interesting. I love opals too, and indeed there are not enough jewels with opals around.

I second the opal wish :-) I love opals and have two pairs of opal earrings (would love more ....)
When Mary turned 40, I was actually hoping that her royal in-laws would splash out and give her an opal tiara; would be suitable for a royal of Australian descent with a tiara with the signature gem stone of Australia (at least that's how I perceive opals, I may be wrong).

Opals are Australia's signature gem stone, UserDane. A well founded association on your behalf
