I did not read what was written as the letters were too small, but thank you for this.

For me, it is rather interesting to see the jewels of some unknown members of the royal and noble families.

Another tiara who will be auctioned by Christies in May is the Faberge tiara of Crown Pricness Cecilie. It was last seen when her daughter Cecilie wore it at her Weddin 70 years ago in 1949.

Info comes from Vincent Meylan on his Instagram.

It's a pity that we won't be seeing these tiaras in use, probably :(

Crown Princess Cecilie's Faberge Tiara | The Court Jeweller

Interesting tiara but I dislike the design.

Fellow poster Stig posted an interesting photo on another forum from the wedding of Princess Alexandra zu Sayn-Wittgenstein-Berleburg and Count Jefferson von Pfeil und Klein-Ellguth:

https://i.ibb.co/bs5TZ52/1998.jpg

In the back of the photo one could see a lady wearing a tiara which looks like the "Spike tiara" Carina Axelsson was also wearing in recent times.

http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-H44x4goJ9h...1600/_swb1.jpg

Does anyone know who the lady is, how is she related to the family and is maybe this tiara the same one? Which could explain the theory that Carina borrowed a tiara from another SWB family member?

That tiara really looks a lot like the one worn by Carina. This was the wedding of Princess Alexandra of Sayn-Wittgenstein-Berleburg, so several members of the Berleburg family should have been present.

I really don't think that it's a loan from Prince Robin, given the current rift in the family. Could it belong to the Hohenstein branch of the family? They are closely enough related, but they seem to be rather private. I don't know of any wedding pics other than the one of Princess Johanna with the Douglas bridal crown. They just might have an unseen tiara in their family.

There have been a few wedding pics around of descendants of Prince Ludwig Ferdinand. The only tiara in that branch of the family seems to be the smaller spike tiara of Princess Yvonne, that Princess Anna of Bavaria has now worn a couple of times in Sweden. So I don't think that it comes from them.

One more photo of the mysterious lady wearing this tiara posted by Stig in another forum:

https://i.ibb.co/KbSJh8S/1998b.jpg

Could it be Princess Katharina zu Sayn-Wittgenstein-Hohenstein, born Countess von Podewils-Dürniz?

What do you think?

If this is the case, we could have a simple explanation!

Prince Barnhart zu Sayn-Wittgenstein-Hohenstein is first cousin of Prince Richard, Gustav's father, which means they are closely related.

Prince Bernhart and Countess Katharina von Podewils-Dürniz are divorced from 2009, so there is no need for a tiara for this side of the family in recent future as Prince Bernhart hasn't remarried and doesn't have daughters, but only a 20 years old son, Prince Wenzel Max. That's might be the reason why he "rented" his tiara to Gustav/Carina.

So, this spike tiara might be in fact a Sayn-Wittgenstein-Hohenstein jewel.

Any thoughts?

It looks like it is the same lady indeed. The facial features are very simular.

I am not sure if they are close friends who simply lend the tiara or if it is rented. But taking a tiara out of a safe will mean an additional insurance perhaps which can be costly.

Well, Bernhart and Gustav are first cousins once removed, similar in age, which means that they might know each other from childhood. Hohensteins attended Alexandra's wedding, we see spike tiara on two Sayn ladies, someone on the other forum mentioned that this tiara was borrowed from another Sayn relative, so there is no known reason to think they are not close.

My theory is that the tiara is lent to Carina/Gustav as Bernhart has no need for a tiara in near future. He is divorced for 10 years now and maybe the tiara will be used when his son gets married. So, in the meantime, why not lend or rent it to his cousin instead of being kept in a bank safe for many years to come.

I think that the woman is Fürstin Katharina, and that it's the same tiara as Carina wear now. But there is now way of knowing for sure if it's really a Hohenberg tiara, and whether it was loaned, hired, bought or whatever. It might be even possible that both Katharina and Carina loaned the tiara from yet another family member. It's a pity that there are no pics from Bernhard and Katharina's wedding.

I wonder the same. :( If someone has some info, it would be most appreciated. Here is one more photo of Katharina from 1995, wearing some golden earrings:

https://ta-images.condecdn.net/image...go-Burnand.jpg

Judging from Princess Alexandra's wedding photo, posted previously we can now be almost sure that the man standing next to Katharina is Prince Benhart zu Sayn-Wittgenstein-Berleburg:

Well, Prince Gustav and Carina live in Berleburg Castle which is only 7.5km away from Castle Schwarzenau where Prince Bernhart lives, so maybe it's the easiest and simplest way to pass the tiara if needed without much fuss.

I have no idea but as it was made in Berlin an association with the Prussian RF or court is likely.

It is not a very expensive but a pretty piece. Affordable for the king of Belgium, whose daughter will soon turn 18.

The motives are a bit similar to these Prussian ones:

It might be the fashion in Berlin court at the time.

Looks similar to the Hannover clover tiara last worn by Countess Isabella of Thurn and Valsassina at her Wedding. But no Ideia if is the same.
