Hard to judge from an old black and white photo. Diamonds tend not to photograph very well, often appearing dull and flat.
It may have been more impressive when seen in "real life" under the right lighting conditions, when the diamonds were sparkling and glittering.

The Royal Order of Sartorial Splendor: Tiara Thursday: The Saxe-Coburg and Gotha Turquoise Tiara

This is my favorite turquoise tiara! I think this tiara is absolutely exquisite. The stones are so beautiful, and the design is fantastic. Love the necklace and brooch as well. This tiara is simply magnificent.

Thanks for posting this interesting picture . Afaik the tiara was made by Faberge. Do you know which event this was? I wonder if this aquamarine tiara is still with the Schleswig-Holstein family of Duchess Anastasia.

The Bavarian Sunburst Tiara | A Tiara a Day

In my opinion, one of the worst tiaras I have ever seen!

I would agree that it's not the best choice of tiara's.Maybe that's why they sold it...

Imo,Princess Anna looks better wearing her own family tiara(Sayn-Wittgenstein-Berleburg) which she wore at Madeleine's wedding:

The Princesses de Ligne wore for their wedding the "de Ligne tiara".
The wonderful tiara of Princess Stephanie was stolen by the Bolchevics.

The German Royals normally have kept their tiaras and jewels we are happy to see for their wedding.
I don't understand why Duke Poldi sold his ?

Oh I agree but it may look better without that central top piece,interesting to note it was originally a Spanish royal tiara and brought to Germany by the Infanta Maria la Paz (daughter of Isabella II).

The tiaras Carina Axelsson has worn:

The Royal Watcher

The floral tiara, and the pearl and star tiara are nice. However, the third tiara is awful in my opinion. It looks cheap looking to me.

The floral tiara, I believe, belongs to a Danish Countess, a lady in waiting to the Queen.

The third tiara is ghastly. I don't think that they are diamonds, possibly topaz or zircons.

The Württemberg Topaz Tiara | A Tiara a Day

I find this tiara breathtakingly beautiful! It's a shame there is not a lot of royal pink topaz tiaras.

I love topaz as royal jewels! This is stunning -I absolutely agree with you! One of my favorite Demi's is the Swedish pink topaz set. I have always hoped that there would one day be a tiara commissioned. I say buy this one if it ever goes on the block, it's so lovely, it is worthy of a full set.

I just wondered why this post is under German and Austrian jewels, it is owned by a member of the British Royal Family. And although HH Princess Marie-Louise was born a Princess of Schleswig Holstein, she was never anything other than a member of the British Royal Family!

The Royal Order of Sartorial Splendor: Tiara Thursday: The Prussian Meander Tiara

I think this tiara is just stunning. I love the kokoshnik shape, the large diamonds, and the grand design. I am not really a fan of the Greek key design but this tiara is fantastic overall. To me, this tiara is regal and magnificent.
