I think Queen Rania is one of the best in wearing a tiara with her hair down. The swedish royal ladies wear their tiara very good in a beautiful hairdo.

I have a question as this is one of my pet topics.
Sometimes we see royals wearing their tiaras in the same way gala after gala. How can they be innovative. I have seen photos from the 20¨s were royals has put their tiara upside down (do not have a photo to show) is this something you would like to see. Is there other ways for royals to be innovative when wearing tiaras for example with their hair.
I think several royal houses has brooches in their vaults so these can be used with a elaborate hairstyle.

I'd like to see headband or bandau tiaras make a comeback....you know, something that can be worn on the forehead or right along the hairline.

I'd also like to see something with pieces of jewelery woven into the hair. When my best friend got married a couple years ago, she had some pearl pieces that belonged to her grandmother sewn into her hair ribbon she had running through her hair, so when she turned around, the back of her head was diamonds and pearls.

You mean something along these lines?

It is a shame that it is out of style. These ladies looked lovely with their short hair. Diana tried a couple of times to use this look. Laura Ponte inverted a tiara on her wedding day, but I didn't particularly care for her results. It's unfortunate. Some of the ladies today just pop a tiara on their heads and go.

If anybody could find the pic it would be appreciated, I've looked everywhere for it. :) What do you think?
HRHAmy,

Is this what you saw??

Yes RachelD!!! That's the picture I was talking about, I love the way it fits with her hair. What do you think? Do you think a princess would look good in it? I know if they wore it they would get flack for not having a impressive tiara but I think it would be a good starter tiara and it's nice and light and probably wouldn't break the Queen or King's bank account either.

When you click on the link do you get the "no authorization..." message? Refresh the window that's showing the error. This always works for me whenever I get that message with one of the Getty images.

I can see that picture.


For future reference, to upload something to Imageshack, save the picture to your hard drive, go to Imageshack, upload the picture and then you'll get a bunch of different links for displaying your picture. Just go to the last one and put that link between the img tags.

i would like to see some alterative wearing of jewellery, we have seen this in the Swedish royal family with diamond necklaces in the hair and other glittering stuff.
I know that the Dutch royal house as stars Maxima has worn them on her dress maybe she can wear it in her hair.


kimebear these are the photos that i were thinking of its very different why to wear tiaras for us. i would love to see a brave royal try it out. Maybe mabel she usally have fun trying new things
