The Royal Order of Sartorial Splendor: Tiara Thursday: Empress Eugénie's Pearl and Diamond Tiara

I find this tiara breathtakingly beautiful. Love the size of those pearls. This tiara is regal, classic, elegant, and perfect in my opinion. One of my all time favorites.

There's no doubt this is a really beautiful and historic tiara and I'm glad it found its way back to the Louvre!

Love it remarkable that the pearls have aged so well.

Nothing like a pearl tiara designed and crafted beautifully. I'd certainly love to see that worn again.

The Royal Order of Sartorial Splendor: Tiara Thursday: Two French Sapphire Tiaras

The sapphires are beautiful I do not like Queen Marie-Amelie's Sapphire and Diamond tiara. It's just too tall for my taste. If it was shorter then I may have loved it. However, the parure is simply breathtaking.

Queen Marie-Amelie's Sapphire, Diamond, and Pearl tiara however is one of my favorites of all time! I think the tiara is wonderful, regal, and stunningly beautiful. It also has a very timeless design. Again, the parure, is absolutely breathtaking. In my opinion, this tiara, and the two parures are one of the most beautiful I have ever seen.

The sapphire belonging to Diana was miniscule compared to the ones that were part of that belt worn in one of the portraits. And her necklace was stunning in its size of stones. Thanks for posting the pictures. Magnificent!!

The Royal Order of Sartorial Splendor: Tiara Thursday: The Marie Louise Diadem

This tiara may be too grand for some but I find it simply breathtaking. The color of those emeralds are just beautiful. The rest of the parure is also very stunning. The turquoise version is also breathtaking. Overall, I simply love the grand and regal presence of this tiara. One of my favorites of the French royal jewels.

The Royal Order of Sartorial Splendor: Tiara Thursday: The Empress Joséphine Tiara

This tiara is definitely intriguing, unique, and just breathtaking. At first I thought this tiara was too much, but I appreciated it's regal and grand appearance, and fascinating design. I just love those pear shaped large diamonds. In my opinion, one of the most beautiful tiaras I have ever seen.
