Dear JBCcode 99,

Delighted to from you. You will kindly pardon my usual quota of typos. That is because I have not been eating enough chocolate icecream. As for gems that would be acceptable why not try topaz, or aquamarine, white sapphires or my favorite, which are not all that expensie, amethysts. I went gem stone hunting up in North Carolina and got a lovely deep purple amethyst and had it carved and set for all told about 100 dollars. It is quite a hunk and very beautiful. Of course with the Spencer tiara I can understand, but could you really appear in public with such a thing knowing that it was austrian crystal and silver plate??? That I think would be a bit much. cheers.

Spencer tiara replica - excellent!

I have purchased the Spencer tiara replica from Glamgal.com (there are two offered - a cheap looking reproduction and a more expensive, beautifully crafted replica) Of course I purchased the best of the two. I am very pleased with this product. To place it upon my head was such a happy feeling - no its not real, but what I felt was priceless. I am very happy to have a collection of replicas! Imagination is a wonderful thing which allows me to visit a world of royalty with no strings attached. To place such restrictions of only having "the real jewels" would deprive me of the joy of the dream of being royal!

Oh yea- we can buy everybody's favorite tiara, the Burmese Ruby! I'm sure Thomas will want one... However, I'll take one of the Boucheron copies, and a copy of the Girls of Great Britain and Ireland

Glad you enjoyed it!

I'd happily take a copy of the Dagmar Necklace. (Although I know that all of us would do justice to the real things.)

What a FUN site! I shall take a Girls of Great Britain, a Queen Victoria's bow brooch, and an assortment of the Royal Family Orders! I have to say, that I did rather like the orders. They were attractive! Thank you for the link!

Calling them 'replicas' is somewhat ambitious. 'Tacky takeoffs' seems more appropriate.

Many are indeed "tacky-take-offs!" However, one can research as I have done and find a beautifully designed replica for one's memorabilia collection. It took me over 8 years to find one adequate enough to call a true replica.

The cambridge love looks the best out of those tiaras that they tried so hard to copy after and that's sad well atleast in my opinion.

I wonder what the Queen thinks about the Spencer tiara being listed as one of the Queen's tiaras.

I've said it time and again--these companies, writers, newspapers, tabloids, etc...should consult with TRF for accurate information!

Indeed - some are so poor as to be barely recognizable - coming into the "glad you told me what it's supposed to be..." classification


I do like the replicas site which does the brooches - I've always wanted the Cullinan V brooch and theirs is a passable imitation. I could happily put alongside my Hope Diamond replica bought at the Smithsonian (now THEY really know how to make a replica!!)

The website says she wore the Spencer tiara on wedding date nothing about
the tiara being the queen's tiara.I see Princess Diana Tiara Replicas.

And a rather disappointing replica. As is the Cambridge Lover's Knot tiara. The only one of the bunch that looks worth having is the Girls of Great Britain and Ireland tiara -- one of my favorites. I would love to see it with the base.

Cambridge Knot Tiara

I have yet to see a really inspiring replica of the beautiful Cambridge Knot tiara. The Glamgal website even does not have the high standard I'd like to see. Of course, it does have the Spencer replica as I have stated before - actually 2 - one is the cheap looking knock off that only a non royal watcher might purchase and the more expensive one - truly lovely and very much identical to the actual tiara. Glamgal has a "royal collection" which has a lovely replica of the Queen of Belgium's tiara. It is fun researching to find the best replica!

Need Help!

Hello From Canada,

I have joined this forum hoping someone can help me. Around 13 years ago I purchased a ring in Santorini, Greece. The 2 gentlemen that sold it to me said it was a replica of a ring worn by someone in the Greek Royal Family years ago. It had a matching necklace and bracellet.

Can someone tell me who owned the original? Or can someone please refer me to someone or a site that may have the answer? I would greatly appreciate it! I am attaching 2 images of the ring.

Thank you,

E1S

Do any of our Greek jewellery experts have an idea of what this ring might be a replica of?
