I might be seeing things here, but the top row of stones look an awful lot like Amethysts. Which is Estelle's Birthstone. So if that's the case and I'm not just seeing something I want to see, then perhaps that's a pretty big clue as to where and why Victoria has a new tiara.

JMO of course. :)

The tiara is lovely when you see it live, you can see it at least twice at this video.

ok, after reading through Victorias new tiara again, I have mixed feelings now.

First: great, a new tiara is always a most welcomed addition - and the combination with the comb is SUPERB
Second: the sparkle of the tiara is undoubletly there, see the video
But third: I am a bit unhappy about this choice. This is a "mere" cut steel tiara, used at "the" Royal highlight event of the year", the wedding of an heir. For me that´s absolutely understated and not appropriate for the occasion. The diamond necklace may have raised the overall jewel balance again, but....

Bye Bine

I really don't care much for the appearance of this "new" tiara. And I personally don't think that it suited the shape of Victoria's face.

Thanks so much - I agree, you can see it much better here than in the pictures. Still I think it was somehow slightly too small for this event given other tiaras we have seen and knowing that Victoria can pull the big pling off. I saw Queen Margrethe with the Floral Aigrette, Princess Tessie with Marie Adelaids tiara (! - personally one of my favourites) and Princess Caroline with all the Grimaldi heirlooms.
But again on the other hand - Hey guys - a new tiara

Perhaps she thought it will be a good event to debut the new tiara. I think there are some new tiaras been debuted all these years in various royal weddings.

Is it not strange that the CP and her mother QS didnt wear any order sash? Just the ribbon of the Seraphin (spelling?) under the minatiure of the King.

To me Victoria's tiara isn't so small, and it is festive with the comb. About a small tiara at this event - I guess we all remember the small tiara queen Rania wore at Victoria's wedding. This wasn't a wedding, this was a dinner on a previous day.

At the wedding Victoria had a pearl bracelet

Are we sure it's cut steel? It doesn't look like it to me.

The tiara plus matching hair comb is quite an exciting new addition, last but not least because these jewels might have belonged to a Bernadotte lady in the past and been bought back now.
By the second half of the 19th century, sets including tiara plus haircomb were already beginning to become outdated.
If it is cut steel indeed, it would place this set even closer to the Napoleonic era when the material and the new capability of cutting it this precisely were very much in fashion.
On the other hand, in some pictures it looks more like silver, possibly with the faceted pellets/balls on top in onyx... which could mean that it was mourning jewelry originally.
A fascinating riddle.

I don't see diamonds in the latticework, and certainly not at the top.

The top is definitely not diamonds. I can't tell with the lace work either.

I'm on team cut steel, though clearer pictures might change my opion. And I don't mind the lack of diamonds at all, because antique cut steel pieces carry a vast history, especially if it really is another Bernadotte piece. Imo the wedding was an ideal moment to break in a new tiara.
My problem with this tiara is, that it doesn't suit Victoria well, it goes neither with her colouring nor with her facial shape.
Whereas the other cut steel tiara seems just made for her. No other lady looks as gorgeous with it.

I too can see baguette diamonds in that closer look of the tiara. The top row is not, but sure looks like cabachon stones to me and I think I see some purple there. If I'm not just wishing it that is.

Regardless...Thank you so much salma for that picture of it close up. I make tiara using wire, beads and fake gemstones. For the first time, I can honestly say I have an actual Royal tiara I can make a pretty close copy of. Once I get all of my materials in order that is.

Thank you so much again for the picture!!! :)

That tiara was a miss for me. It would look odd on anyone...
But the pearl bracelet and particularly the brooch she wore at the wedding were really beautiful!
