I now I am in the minority here, but I do think Sophie's weddding tiara is fine - not the prettiest, and not the ugliest. If its base could be "enhanced" with some more diamonds, it would make an interesting piece.

I also think the necklace could potentially now be on permanent loan to her, just like the Boucheron tiara is to Camilla. It is possible that Sophie has had this neckace for some time now and we have not seen it as she is often left out of the pictures of state banquets.

Sophie's tiara is fine. She needs a hairdresser.

I think she has unfortunate hair but does the best she can with it IMO that is as good as it gets.

I don't mind Sophie's wedding tiara, it does need a base of diamonds but I think it fits her personality. It is better than P Mary's wedding tiara, and she's a Crown Princess.

Sophies aquamarines are stunning, I also hope to see them soon.

The necklaces are so similar....maybe the Queen had 2!(hehe)

She seems to have a difficult time concealing the comb part.

Don't be ridiculous. Hairdress can do wonders. She seems to lack one. Just looks like a mess she does herself.

Cool

Sophie's wedding tiara is horrible, I like the aquamarine tiara/necklace much better. Mary's ruby parure tiara is much, much better.

Then I'm in the minority too. It looks pretty, a bit medieval, but that's exactly the charm of this piece IMO. I also want to thank you all for providing precious info about the necklace she wore at Victoria's wedding. I liked it a lot. Her earrings were nice too.

I think Sophie may have hair like mine, lots of it but very fine. When worn down no amount of hairspray etc can keep it looking good if there is a bit of breeze. About the aquamarine tiara and the necklace already discussed, the BRF have a large "pool" of jewelry which is not always seen on public occasions. It could be that the tiara is from this.

For anyone interested in tiaras there is a brilliant book by Geofrey Munn called" Tiaras a history of splendour" .

Nonsense. People with baby fine hair can have hairdos that work well for them. I have baby fine hair, but always have a good hairdresser. I am sure the very best are available to her.

I wasn't referring to her ruby parure! Which I agree is superb, but her wedding tiara which is a little small IMO!

My apologies I read your post too fast and misunderstood.

I think the wedding tiara is not small, given Sophie's relative position in the BRF. As previously pointed out, her tiara has a lot more bling that the one that Princess Mary of Denmark has. Again as previously posted, a base would make Sophie's tiara much more substantial.

Such a relief that someone also sees the tiara this way
