The Cullinans Part 1: The Big Stars of Africa

That is one big brooch Queen Mary is wearing! I think it looks interesting on a sceptre. Such magnificent diamonds!

NEWSFLASH Everyone!!!!!

The new book by Hugh Roberts - The Queen's Diamonds reports that the so called Rundell Tiara was in fact made by Garrards and was left to Princess Victoria who disposed of it!!! A must buy I think!

Thanks so much. This book really is solving a lot of mysteries about the Windsor jewel vault. Like the Ladies of England tiara being broken up to make the Lover's Knot....

My heart is breaking over the dismantling of that gorgeous tiara, even if it was for another beautiful jewel. Terrible loss.

My heart is crying for the dismantling of the Ladies of England tiara, it was one of my favourites! And it was broken to made the Lover's Knot tiara, which I don't like!

It also says the Teck tiara is on loan to Camilla. The question is why haven't we seen it on her?

Also the Surry Tiara was broken up. Some of the stones replaced the pearls on the "Girls" and the rest went to the creation of the Gloucester Palmette Tiara.

Queen Mary's Loop was broken up in favor of the Dehli Durbar (although I heard rumors of that before so it's not that surprising).

To me, the worse is confirmation that the Nizam of Hyderbad tiara has indeed been broken up to create the Burmese Ruby Horror.

On a happier note, we now know that Alexandra's circlet went to Maude and is being worn regularly by Sonja (sans the fleur de lys motifs).

Maybe the Teck tiara is being held for a particular occasion for Camilla to wear, or not until Charles ascends the throne.

When Charles ascends to the Throne, Camilla will have full access to all jewels in the vaults. I do hope we'll get to see the Teck Tiara before that.
Confirmation that those great tiaras - Rundell, Nizam of Hyderabad, and Girls of England - is truly devastating for all jewellery watchers.

The question is... Which Teck tiara? The crescent and rose or the wheatear or some other? HRH the Duchess of Teck had an extensive collection of jewels!

In the thread linked it was said to be the Rose and Crescent.

I must say, when I first read "Teck Tiara", I automatically assumed the Duchess of Teck Rose and Crescent Tiara was meant.
Of course, it can be one of the other tiaras in royal vaults (Queen Mary wore a lot of jewellery), but for me Teck tiara always meant the Teck Rose and Crescent one.

That's the tiara I always assumed to be the Teck one, too.

My sense is that if Camilla has not worn the Teck tiara so far, she is unlikely to wear it in a hurry, if at all. She seems to have settled on a few favourite pieces (including the Greville Boucheron tiara) and tends to use them frequently.

That said, it is interesting that HM gave (loaned) Camilla 3 tiaras, a number higher than any other member of the BRF other than HM herself.
