The Countess Spencer Tiara

Here's the link to the Albion Art Museum Tiara Exhibition page for this Spencer tiara.

c 1890. Gold, silver, diamonds and pearls


"The charm of this example comes from the orient or iridescent sheen of the beautifully matched set of domed button pearls, combined with the glitter of the diamonds. Used together like this the diamond and the pearl bring out the best of each other’s qualities. Being all-white the tiara had the added advantage that it could be worn with dresses of all colours and shone out under the blaze of electric light."

Re: Possible Tiara exhibition -Copenhagen in March 2009.

Hiya Everyone,

I had read info from two other message boards ( Royal Jewels of the World and second message board) that according to Antik & Auktion January issue that there might be an exhibition of Tiaras from various jewellers and possible royal jewels from the DRF to held in March at Amalienborg palace museum in Copenhagen.

Has anyone heard about this possible upcoming exhibition?

I have tried to find more information about it but, alas haven't found any more information on it.

Does anyone know when upcoming exhibitions are announced by the Danish Royal family museums?

Any information would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers and Thank you,
Emeralds and Opals.

Exhibition in Copenhagen: Tiaras

Amalienborg Palace museum,
from March 14th to Aug. 2nd:

Tiaras: Queen of jewellery- jewellery of queens.

Queen Margrethe and other ladies from the DRF are lending some of their tiaras to the exhibition, which is about the history of the tiara through the past 150 years and especially, how the tiara is perceived today.
Fifteen Danish jewellers are contributing with new interpretations of the tiara.

According to press releases the infamous "poppy" hairpiece of Queen Margrethe is on display as is a floral motif tiara of Princess Benedikte, the sapphire and diamond tiara of Princess Elizabeth and the kokoshnik-style fringe tiara with Russian IF provenance belonging to Count Ingolf of Rosenborg.

Billed-Bladet posted a picture galery with excellent pics from the exibition here: Billed-Bladet - Margrethe og de smukke diademer
There is the golden poppies piece and also the orange-nassau pearl tiara Queen Margrethe often wears.
Can anybody please identify the tiaras of Princess Benedikte and Princess Elizabeth? I am not quite sure, although one might guess. Most tiaras in the exibition are clearly contemporary and some are so downright ugly that the poppy piece looks wonderful in comparison.

The tiara of Princess Benedikte is the floral motif diamond tiara with a small emerald (??) in the centrepiece. It was a gift for her 18th birthday from her parents, and it can be split into three brooches.

Princess Elisabeth owns the diamond & sapphire tiara; the latter can be swapped for turquoises.

Isn't princess Benedikte's tiara made from a big devant corsage of Queen Ingrid that was broken up? This is the first time I see a emerald in the tiara though, it looks nice. Usually the princess uses a diamond or a pearl.

Yes it is a brooch from Queen Ingrid and 2 other brooches where added on the sides. The tiara can be broken up and the middle part worn as brooch. Princess Beneditke wore it like this recently (sorry can not remember which Event). And the stone in the middle brooch can be changed.

I don't want to upset you guys, who seem to know a lot more about royal jewellery than I. However I suspect that you are confusing the tiaras of Princess Benedikte and Princess Anne-Marie! According to Bjarne Steen Jensen's book on the jewellery of the DRF:

The centrepiece (brooch) of Pcs. Benedikte's floral motif tiara is an heirloom from Queen Alexandrine. The "sides" were made in to match, making it one of the "Lego- tiaras". The original brooch was apparently never worn by Queen Ingrid, but BSJ cannot trace the entire story of the piece with certainty.

The corsage mentioned by Marengo was made into a tiara for Princess Anne-Marie as a gift for her 18th birthday. It once belonged to Queen Ingrid and has Swedish-German provenance through Queen Victoria of Sweden, again most likely, as BSJ has not been provided with all the details. The Corsage was added to a crown ring without any additions.

At the Auction of the items of the Princess Axel of Danemark her tiara was a copy , the real one never left ther safe in the bank.
Since now a wonder if the stones of royal tiaras are glass-stones or diamand.
The glass-stone tiara of Princess Margaretha was sold at Drouot/Paris 320 euros !!
