This site has many excellent reproduction tiaras. The fife tiara, the french pearl tiara (worn by Josephine) and a couple of really nice russian tiaras. Take your time and browse, I always get lost for severl hours looking and dreaming.

Copys / doubles of royal jewels

I found this on Facebook... " Kronmakaren" - "the Crown maker". Britten Toftarp is making/building copys of some of the swedish royal jewels and she is using steel wire to do it... They doesnt look that good but its fun!

kronmakaren | Facebook

and homepage: www.kronmakaren.se

Does anybody know about other "Crown makers" or other copys/doubles of royal jewels??

Now, totally not sure how good these are, but there are tiaras and such on ebay that are replicas of royal pieces. Here are some:

These don't even look anything like the real thing and they are from 500 pounds and up.

Hi! While I was browsing online for a new purse last Tuesday I found a whole bunch of royal replicas at qvc.com. You can find many items to sort through by searching for “ KJL “ (the designer’s initials – Kenneth Jay Lane).

There were several pieces resembling the late Princess of Wales’ jewelry (engagement ring, multi-strand pearl necklace with sapphire center, gold watch, sapphire/diamond jewels, etc.). I saw a couple of pieces that resembled the late Duchess of Windsor’s jewelry, as well as a few pieces like those of the new Duchess of Cambridge.

Here are just a couple of items I thought I’d share…

Catherine’s engagement necklace (no earrings): http://www.qvc.com/qic/qvcapp.aspx?view=2&app=detail&params=item^J159006,RecTypeInd^IOFFER,navlist^J260912*J159006*J158485*,cp^detail,tmp^related,cpprod^J159003,cm_scid^dtlr&walk=&cmtags=

I was surprised to see these, just four days after the wedding! Catherine’s wedding earrings: (IMHO not the best copy, but at least it’s something attainable by the average lady.)
http://www.qvc.com/qic/qvcapp.aspx?view=2&app=detail&params=item^J260912,RecTypeInd^IOFFER,navlist^J260912*J159006*J158485*,cp^detail,tmp^related,cpprod^J159003,cm_scid^dtlr&walk=&cmtags=


Bracelet inspired by the Spencer tiara: http://www.qvc.com/qic/qvcapp.aspx/view.2/app.detail/params.item.J158488.desc.KJL-Family-Tiara-Bracelet

Diana’s wedding earrings: http://www.qvc.com/qic/qvcapp.aspx?view=2&app=detail&params=item^J159003,RecTypeInd^IOFFER,navlist^J159003*J158485*J159005*,cp^detail,tmp^related,cpprod^J158488,cm_scid^dtlr&walk=&cmtags=

Diana’s watch:http://www.qvc.com/qic/qvcapp.aspx/view.2/app.detail/params.item.J158495.desc.KJL-Royal-Birthday-Watch

I thought this bracelet looked somewhat similar to the bracelet HM received from Prince Philip... Kinda/sorta.

I agree, after looking at all the sites, by far the Glamgal replica of the Spencer Tiara is the best I've ever seen. Here's the link

Princess Diana Wedding Tiara

As far as the Diana/Kate engagement ring goes you want a 14 prongs along the "sapphire" or it won't look like the real thing. This is where to get it.

If you allow:
some time ago, I was happy with buying an imitation brooch ressembling to one of Queen Elisabeth`s II brooches, yet, today, I know I will never do this anymore; better take one of my small collection of real ones.

Duchess of Windsor jewels reproductions

Hello, Hoping somebody might have some information that can help me.

A good friend of mine who is nearly in her 80s was years ago treated to the duchess of Windsor jewels reproductions the whole set including the panther/leopard brooch. Which was sadly stolen of off her jacket while out one night she is truly devastated and I'm trying my utter most to find one again. I believe quite a few of these were made but I'm struggling to find anything about them. Any help at all would be most grateful.

Hoping, English Rose.

Good luck!

I really dislike having to drag up an older thread, but I have a burning question for you all.

Has anyone here actually ordered any of the replica pieces from StageJewellry?

If so, could you possibly review your experience and provide photos of the actual item received?

I have stumbled upon countless bridal sites based in China, with stolen photos of famous tiaras - claiming THAT is the final product you will receive. I have my doubts, to be sure.

However, StageJewellry seems to be a decent site, but they have only one image per tiara and they are very small photos. I am apprehensive to spend almost $1,000US on a replica if there aren't decent photos to aid my decision.

I know this information is rather late coming but I only just happened upon the thread today and wanted to offer some information to everyone.

There are a couple of manufacturers in India who are reproducing tiaras in genuine stones. This one is modeled on the ruby leaf tiara.
11.25ct Diamond & Ruby Tiara

Others I have found are the Countess of Wesex's wedding tiara:
10.25CT DIAMOND TIARA REPRODUCTION ART DECO

Princess Mary's wedding tiara:
2.50 CT DIAMOND TIARA CROWN SOLID WEDDING ANNIVERSARY PROM | eBay

and more offerings of Queen Victoria's sapphire tiara than I can list. Some are from a starting bid of $0.99
ANTIQUE VICTORIAN LOOK 14.50CT ROSE CUT DIAMOND SAPPHIRE TIARA
and others are just under the four figure range.
DIAMOND SAPPHIRE TIARA/CROWN VICTORIAN STYLE ART DECO WEDDING ENGAGEMENT

I've started making some tiara's myself which are not replicas but inspired by some of the designs I've seen since joining this forum. I must admit, I'm enjoying it. My first design was inspired by Sweden's Cameo Tiara.

I'm just so happy to know that royal tiaras can be replicated and bought but although it would be nice to have one I can't really wear it out in public except for halloween :p otherwise I would but it put it in a glass box and keep it as a decoration in my room where I can admire it and wish I was royal :p

I always thought it would be lovely to have something real to pass down to future brides in the family, either those marrying into or daughters of. Just make sure it's in a trust so it doesn't become a divorce trophy.

I wondered about starting a new thread for this, and there was much talk when Catherine got engaged with this ring but what I wanted to chat about was replicas. I myself have a similar diamond and sapphire ring which was purchased prior to the engagement but after they announced the engagement that same ring was hiked up in price and nowadays I see loads of copycat rings, including several articles when I visit the TRF.

Has anyone bought a replica ring? What do you think about them?

i bought a replica ring, 7 pearl strand choker and matching earrings( diana's favorite set) and it was worth the money i paid for it and it wasnt much. i think it is a very pretty set, and if i would go to a party that could warrant such a set, i might actually wear it.
