Saturday Sparkler: The Bavarian Sunburst Tiara | The Court Jeweller

I think the design is terrible. One of the worst tiaras.

Maybe that was one of the reasons they sold it!

They sold a stunning amethyst necklace at the same auction. So the 'ugliness' can't have been a reason for the sale.

It might not be the most successful tiara design, but imo it was better than the whimsical (borrowed?) tiaras Princess Ursula wore at the last two Swedish weddings. And the sunburst tiara has a wonderful historic background, going back to Infanta Beatriz. You don't sell such heirlooms unless you in need of money.

I don’t know, that's why I put it in brackets with the question mark.

But here is my reasoning: Princess Ursula has worn to different tiaras at the weddings of Madeleine and Carl Philip. They wouldn’t have sold an heirloom tiara to buy two new ones, imo.
One tiara was a small floral tiara with very few diamonds that looked rather contemporary in style to me. The other tiara was a kind of copy of the famous Spencer tiara. So definitely no old piece, since the Spencer tiara was quite unique in its time. Only after Diana’s wedding would it have become so popular that copies might have been made. Yet I don’t think that aristocratic families would want to buy a tiara that shouts ‘Diana’. I think that both tiaras would make a good investment for a jeweller who wants to loan wedding tiaras to well-off brides.

Both tiaras weren’t seen on other family members, so I think that it’s likely that the tiaras were loaned from a jeweller. Please note that this is just my theory, I have no proof for it.

I didn't know that this tiara originated from Countess Ottilie, but it is still in the family. Or at least it was in 2007, when Mariella Ahrens married Count Patrick of Faber-Castell.

Does anybody know anything about the tiara Duchess Eilika von Oldenburg used for her wedding with Archduke Georg?

Was it Oldenburg or Habsburg jewel?

I believe that it is the same bandeau that Countess Felicitas Schwerin von Krosig wore at the pre-wedding before marrying Duke Huno of Oldenburg. Probably Duchess Tatiana and Duchess Beatrix also wore it on their wedding days. But of the latter ladies I have never seen good enough pictures to verify that theory.

The Habsburg pearl bandeau (worn by AD Francesca a few times) seems to look quite different, imo.

Is there a picture of Princess Margarita at the wedding in Athens? (I assume the the one you posted was taken later.) I have never heard anything about the origins or the current whereabouts of this tiara.

Although not a very clear one.

Nothing is known about this tiara.Her daughter Princess Katarina of Yugoslavia wore some other tiara at her wedding to Sir Desmond de Silva.

I just sent an email to Ms. Ida Quinn,secretary to Princess Katarina of Yugoslavia regarding the jewels and will see if she will answer me at all.

Diamond and aquamarine necklace of Princess Viktoria Luise of Prussia found it's way to the auction:

Il Ponte casa d'aste

The necklace was a wedding present from Tsar Nicholas II of Russia.
