I hope you mean to say that it doesn't look like a substantial piece, because that's true...
...but regarding its significance, any hair ornament worn by a Royal as a tiara for the very first time causes some excitement and is certainly of significance for the royal jewelry watchers.

This ornament does look weird...The only thing I'm sure of is that this isn't a tiara and of course, that I don't like it at all

Is it a comb of some form?
I think she wore it in a picture Lord Lichfield took year ago, before the opening of parliament?

Oh please, please, please, can you (or someone else) scan and post this picture? I'm sure I won't be the only one to appreciate that very much

I'm sorry but I can't get excited at this. A gold hairband with four pearls does not a glittering tiara make. I feel that Princess Anne has let us down.

Ditto! She had three from which to choose (four if you count the one of Mrs. Greville's that appeared at the Chinese banquet)--so, a headband with pearls on it, regardless of size, does not a tiara make.

Of course I was disappointed as well. But in the absence of something really stunning worn on her head, I choose to get exited over a close-up of a mere, simple gold band with some pearls. Sorry if I’m the only one who got so frustrated about the utterly unclear pictures we have seen so far.

No, you are not the only one.
As far as I can tell by the pics, Princess Anne wore a rather elaborate, unusual gold and pearl necklace, which has been very rarely seen.
Choosing this necklace, she obviously decided to rather match it in style with a so far unknown headband than wear one of her tiaras which would not have matched at all. That's interesting, also because this might be a complete (gift?) set which has not appeared in public before in its whole.
Therefore, I still would very much like to see the close up.

You can check this thread on the Royal Jewels of the World MB. This link has the best close-up I've seen of Princess Anne's headpiece:

Oh, no no no no! I was extremely frustrated by the quality of the photos I've seen. It may not be a tiara, but it's a piece of jewelry I can't place so I'm very curious as to what it is. But, never disappointed in a new piece of jewelry!!

Ayvee, bless you! this is the best (all but not excellent) close up of the "mystery pearl tiara/haircomb" that I've seen. Its always interesting when Royals wear some new adornment for us to drool over.....

Andrew has posted this picture http://i203.photobucket.com/albums/a...UC_017941D.jpg in post 37. To me it looks like the necklace and earrings worn at the banquett of the Indian visit. Maybe the gold-and-pearl-bandeau is part of this set?

Gold and Pearl Bandeau

Again, the images at RJOTWMB are not permanent, so for a more lasting record here's a pic of Princess Anne's bandeau.

The image is courtesy of Tamara and RJOTWMB
I have severely cropped Tamara's blown-up photo so that the small section of the original pic that is attached here is not subject to copyright restriction.

HRH The Princess Royal, State Banquet for the President of India, Windsor Castle, 27 October 2009.

Does anyone know what jewellery Princess Anne wore at the state banquet on Wednesday? The distant view below is the best shot I have seen. The tiara looks like it might be the festoon tiara.

To me it looks more like her aquamarine tiara. But it is impossible to tell for sure without a clearer picture.

Has she worn the Aquamarine tiara recently? I only remember seeing an old picture of her wearing it. It would have loved a clear modern photo of it.

It does look like the Festoon - it would be nice to see the Aquamarine again. Curse these photographers not getting the full set of shots!
