My favorites:

Fringe tiara
York tiara

I agree she will probably wear the York tiara but I think the Fringe would look amazing on her as well.

It is alleged the York Tiara was bought 'new' from Garrards, but the design is so awfully coherent and well thought out, it seems the product of another and better [at Tiara making] age..

Main difference is that in this case we are talking about two daughters, not a daughter and the bride of a son. So, why not use the same tiara as it is the one that has most meaning for them. Or would that be irrelevant in the British aristocracy?

Many of the "great" jewellers keep a stock of antique tiaras purchased for the very reason that making something of that quality takes craftsmanship and time and costs a great deal of money. Mostly it's the expertise that is becoming lost.

A long time ago rocking chairs went out of fashion, so did the expertise. When they became popular again the rockers were straight and rocked you right into the nearest wall! They relearned fast but unfortunately the intricacies of making tiaras are not so easy to reacquire.

I voted for her mother's wedding tiara. After all, both York girls are very close to their mother, so it would seem quite natural that they'd borrow their mother's tiara. Neither Autumn Kelly nor Zara Philips borrowed tiaras from the queen, but wore one of Princess Anne's tiaras. So I think that Eugenie will do the same.

For me, the main difference is that Princess Anne and Princess Margret both have/had several personal tiaras. Sarah, Duchess of York has exactly one tiara. So there's not so much choice, but luckily it's a very beautiful tiara and perfect for a wedding.

The tiara was bought from Garrards, but it was an antique jewel from the the late 19th century.

I don't have this book myself, but in Understanding Jewellery by David Bennet and Daniela Mascetti, there is a picture of the tiara and the information 'A diamond tiara, c. 1890'. It's just not publicly known who owned this tiara previously.

Yep it will be the York. I would be shocked if it weren't.

Can't imagine why she would not wear the York tiara. It's very beautiful. (I voted for the York tiara).

I voted for the beautiful York tiara. I would be stunned to see her in something else.

Well, I think they’re both going to wear the York tiara, so I’d vote the same regardless.

I also think that Eugenie will wear her mothers (York) tiara.
But I don't see any reason why she can not wear the Strathmore rose tiara. Even if the piece is not in a good condition and is missing a proper base - this can be fixed. With all the experience of the royal jewelers, I am sure there is a solution. We have seen a tiara re-shaped and redone now twice in Denmark - so why should this not be possible with this piece?
In the end - it depends on her personal tase and style of the wedding dress.
I don't think we have seen any of the York princesses in a tiara yet - which is why we don't have a hint what could be her personal taste for head jewelry.

The Strathmore clearly wasn't in too bad shape if it was on tour in 2002. They wouldn't be sending it places if it was falling apart.

It seems more plausible it is simply the tiara was out of fashion. Even the queen mum only wore it a few times. It was a gift from her parents, hence the name of it. But the style was out of popularity almost as soon as she got it.

The style though is becoming more on trend. It matches the kind of 20's vibe becoming more popular. Eugenie could pull off the look, especially if she wore it across her forehead.

That said, I have little doubt she will wear her mother's
