I found erliar today a picture of an emerald and diamond tiara at Sotheby's which was sold on 2007 and it is listed as being "formely the property of a belgian princess" Sotheby's - Auctions - Calendar - Noble Jewels
I don't think I have ever come across a picture of a Belgian princess wearing it (unless I have seen it remodeled and I haven't realised)...

I agree - does not look familiar. Any ideas around?

Cool

I looked through a few of my royal jewels books and have not come across this diadem, it is quite beautiful.

I have a note saying that this tiara belonged to the Croÿ-family. Remember that there is a difference between being a Belgian Princess and being a Princess of Belgium... The latter sounds better when selling a tiara, better provenance, higher price. I think there are several other Princely families in Belgium as well, for instance Ligne and Mérode.

The Cartier tiara is stunning! To bad it does not belong to the royal family.

They are Belgian Princes in Belgium such as de Ligne, de Mérode and de Croy.
This families hoped to be King of Belgium in 1831.

My avatar is the Cartier tiara we definitely lost. At the Auction (after 1985 King Leopold III’s death) it was mentioned , tiara from a royal famlly. In Point de Vue Vincent M wrote about a tiara sold by a member of the belgium royal family and Princess Lilian ,the Seller was not delighted !

I'd really like to find out what happened to the tiara given to Astrid by the city of Stockholm when she married Leopold.

A Tiara a Day

The tiara itself is very 1920s and would probably be tough for a modern royal woman to wear as a tiara without some major remodeling. But I think if it still exists, it would make a gorgeous choker.

If there are still some old jewels that haven't seen the light of day for decades, I hope Mathilde can make some use of them. Considering it has been several years since Lilian has passed, perhaps using them now won't be quite so harsh.

Its quite possible but as there haven't been any state visits or Belgian tiara events of late & it maybe sometime before we see Queen Mathilde in a tiara.

Belgium,Spain & Monaco are all having tiara droughts!
