I find it a bit misleading to call the tiara the 'Sayn-Wittgenstein-Berleburg fringe tiara', because there is another tiara that deserves this name even more: the fringe frequently worn by Princess Benedikte.
You are right...it could be called small diamond fringe tiara or I don't know, as indeed it's misleading when called just Sayn fringe tiara.

Lovely...such a shame it appears to have been sold/dismantled.

Perhaps if Karl would had married a Royal Highness we should have seen the tiara again. The tiara must have been a gift to Archduke Otto.
No Zita 's two daughter wore the tiara on their wedding day.

Archduchesses Elisabeth and Charlotte wore different tiaras at their Weddings. It had been reported at the time of the Wedding that Archduchess Regina gave her wedding Jewels to the Statue of the Virgin Mary at Maria Zell but as she wore it in 1953 for the wedding Ball of Archduke Robert the tiara can not have been among the Jewels given away.

Sotheby's has an auction next week that features some amazing jewels:

Magnificent Jewels and Noble Jewels | Sotheby's

There are a couple of tremendous yellow diamonds, legendary items really (Sotheby's has the back-story), that originally come from the Henckels von Donnersmarck family, and then some lovely 19th century pieces of Wurttemberg provenance. In particular I like a quirky looking diamond ears-of-wheat tiara that is being offered.

I love the last two, they are beautiful

The first one seems odd to me. The overall design is lovely, but the stones are just weird. If I wasn't told they were emeralds I would never have thought they were. Maybe its just the photo. And they seem oddly placed on the tiara, like a kid's art project.

Does anyone know, could this be one same tiara, here worn by Princess Adelheid of Priussia, born von Sachsen-Meiningen and Archduchess Regina of Austria, born Princess von Sachsen-Meiningen?

It was later worn by some other Habsburg ladies, Archduchess Monika, Regina's daughter and Archduchess Francesca, her daughter in law.

There's definitely a resemblance

What a great find! I can see the resemblance too: the amount of pearls, the openness of the piece and the height. At the RJWMB they are speculating that the tiara may have been the base of a larger one and got modified over the years.

Yes, I know. For years I tried to become a member there(RJWMB), but somehow I just can't. :( That's why I posted my thoughts here.

The speculation about Regina's jewels made me think about what I noticed. There is also one other pastel portrait of Princess Adelheid of Saxe-Meiningen wearing the same bandeau tiara.

Great find, Marc23! The bandeau pictured in the portrait of Princess Adelheid looks definitely like the bandeau worn by AD Regina and Francesca. On the RJWMB they speculate that this is the base of Empress Zita's tiara, but imho the resemblance is only vague. There are no pearls in Zita's tiara, eg., but there are in Adelheid's bandeau. And as Marengo already pointed out, the number of pearls, the proportions and the spacing are a match.

The portrait of Princess Adelheid looks like early twentieth century, when smaller bandeau tiaras had become en vogue. So it could very well be jewel that designed as a bandeau, and not just a base of a bigger tiara.

The bandeau's look reallythe same but how would it come from Princess Adelheid to Archduchess Regina? Adelheid had children herself.

Well, Adelheid was Regina's aunt. Maybe the tiara actually belonged to Regina's grandmother and Adelheid's mother, Princess Adelheid zur Lippe. She died only in 1948 and after her death Regina might have inherited it, while Adelheid of Prussia might have borrowed her mother's jewels to wear for the portrait. If u can, please post Adelheid's portrait to RJWMB, maybe someone will find the connection.

Dear Stefan, thank you so much for posting pic of Adelheid on other jewels board and maybe gathering some other thoughts about this piece of jewel. :)
