I prefer the fringe tiara as a necklace this time!

How about Prince Albert's marvelous sapphire brooch to wear as well? Just look at the color and the size of those diamonds.

I wasn't aware of this, but Queen Victoria's diamond and sapphire tiara has reappeared. I guess the Harewood family is not longer in possession of it. A shame, a true item of beauty:

Thank you for the link, Baroness. Did I read this right in that the article conveniently failed to say who was currently in possession of the piece?

How interesting would that talk have been though? I always enjoy Geoffrey Munn on the Antiques Roadshow, he really understand the hidden messages behind gifts of jewellery.

Isn't it possible it still belongs to the Earl of Harewood, but was loaned to Munn for his little talk in order to raise money for charity.

The article certainly didn't rule that possibility out. It just seemed to deliberately not say anything about who currently owns it.

That could be correct; the article said that it turned up in a private home giving an impression that it might have changed ownership. But perhaps it was alluding to the talk that Munn gave, so maybe it was loaned out for the event. Very ambiguous! I really hope the Harewoods still own this; it's too important a piece of jewelry to pass from the family.

And, EIIR, I envy you that Geoffrey Munn is on the British Antiques Roadshow; I wish he'd do a tour on the American version. He's the foremost authority on royal jewels, I believe.

Ownership of serious jewels is often treated very discretely, especially for a newspaper report.

The late Earl of Harewood loaned the tiara to Geoffery Munn's Wartski 'One Hundred Tiaras' exhibition in 1997; there's no reason to believe that the current Earl hasn't loaned it to Munn in 2012 for a charity talk.

Munn is the managing director of Wartski so would have the credentials and resources to guarantee the security of the tiara.

I love the first picture, where Munn is holding the tiara by two fingers. It just seems like an odd way to hold it, if you want the camera to have a good angle.

It looks so thin, also.

Thanks, Warren. I'm glad it's still under the ownership of the Harewood family. It's wonderful to see this tiara again, preferably to be worn on someone's head; it's one of my favorites. The sapphires are absolutely stunning in color.

If it still exists, that is. I'm beginning to agree with OoS in that Alexandra herself may have broken it up.

I hope you are wrong.
It would be a shame if such a stunning piece of jewellery were broken into pieces.

I agree!

This is a tiara that would be really nice to see again if in fact is still intact.
