Most of the good tiara pics have been scanned from "Tiaras, A History of Splendour" by Geoffrey Munn (which is why this book is the tiara "bible"). The British jewels on a bright blue background are from the Royal Collection. Other full pics can be found in various Royal Jewels threads, scoured from the internet over the past few years.

well I guess Warren beat me to it!

the pictures I have of tiaras are indeed from Tiaras: A History of Splendour
By Geoffrey C. Munn. The scans I have, which I made the avatars from, are some of my favorite tiaras from the book

That's it!

I have Mr. Munn's book, and for some reason I could find it when I was frantically flipping through the pages to find this tiara. The name was on the tip of my tongue, too.

If you take a look on page 380, there is an amazing close up shot of the tiara. The intricate detail shows the unique craftsmanship of this piece.

Those are gorgeous! Oh my gosh. The third one in the second group is so unusual, I'm so tempted to change my avatar - but turquoise is very special to me, so that one is tempting too. Choices, choices. They're all extraordinary (I just saw Post #30).

Great job, Dazzling, it's so wonderful to see all these jewels in one place.

Can you tell me more about this one?

Dazzling, thank you. I am now in love with it. I do think my family would object if I spent my entire retirement account on it, though. I wonder what it will sell for.

I've begun reading a bit about the Princess Katherine and her husband - very interesting.

Edited to add: I went and looked it up. Um, they are expecting it to sell for something like 4-9 million (British pounds, I would expect - it says CHF after the price). At any rate...obviously, I won't be wearing it anytime soon. I really like your picture of it, Dazzling, the Sotheby picture isn't quite as pretty.

How would a "trading card" of royal jewllery look if you degined it?

i am home sick and started to go thogh some boxes my mom and dad left last time they visited. And there i found trading cards of a band i loved as a young girl.

and it got me thinking what would a trading card of royal jewllery look like as it one of my intrest today.

here is the size
2,5 x 3,5 inch, or 64 x 89 mm
the card should have a back and front page. and on one side have information.

what would you like them to look like and how would you collect them or trade them?
here is what was made in brtain before kate and williams wedding
