And of course it's beauty is so enhanced by Silvia's knowledge of how to wear such a piece- her Danish pastry up do could be over the top, but just helps to make it look all the more majestic.

The Cameo tiara would be perfect for Elizabeth Taylor in one of her movies,but not the best choice for a real princess,in my opinion

I love the Cameo tiara actually. It is one of the oldest tiaras that is still used probably, dating from the Napoleontic area and I just like cameo's a lot... And dispite its size the tiara still has something delicate. I actually hope that Crown Princess Victoria will wear it at her wedding (whenever that will be).

I agree on the star wars tiara of Queen Sonja but the winner for me still are the golden poppies of the Queen of Denmark. She might have had too much of her husbands wines when she bought that one .

I love Cameo tiara. It's much better than ruby tiara.
Yes, it's kind of Swedish wedding tiara - Brigitta, Desiree, Silvia.

I love both the cameo and the ruby. I have to say the Swedish have wonderful tiaras.
I stand by the Wonder Woman tiara being the worst. At least the poppies don't really count as a tiara.

A ruby is just a different coloured sapphire.

Pretty much any bracelet or necklace converted to a tiara. They tend to look too awkward to be flattering to the wearer.

I'm not sure if it's ever been nominated but how about the scarab necklace worn by Princess Lillian (she's had it at some Nobel events), formerly the property of Crown Princess Margaret (her husband's mother). That's a pretty hideous piece of work.

Actually if someone wanted to give it to me I would be thrilled. I rather like it.

That's my awful necklace! There is a romantic history to the necklace, but I don't like the linear arrangement of the scarabs. Maybe it would look better on a lady with a larger decolletage than Princess Lillian's. I think I'd even like it better if the scarabs were on a flat chain that ran horizontally as opposed to vertically.

And the odd thing is, I like Egyptian art and artifacts.

I like the necklace, but it's a distinctive piece and needs to be worn with an Art Deco styled dress to match the geometric lines, not with puffy sleeves and a rounded neckline.

AND it needs to be worn on a much, much younger neck.

I agree but I hesitate whether it should be worn with a larger decolletage. I fear that it may be lost in the ladie's , errrm, bosoms?

On a plain, high necked dark dress it would look great!

The necklace isn't a complete horror, however it looks a bit cheap, like something you could buy for 1$. There is no feeling the necklace is actually made of precious gems or that it has a romantic history behind it.

Great, fun thread. I don't know if this piece has been nominated before.... It is an aquamarine & diamond necklace presented to Queen Elizabeth II on her coronation by the Brazilian government. It looks like a weapon... something that you could swing round and round, and then conk your opponent on the head.

Too much of a heavy clunker to be elegant -- but surely an effective method of taking out your enemy, I say.

I always liked the Brazilian aquamarine & diamond parure.
