Aren't there two unmarried Wied-brothers? I'd love to see this beauty on another bride!
It has been worn by Princess Christina zu Wied as a bride. I have also seen it worn by Princess Sophie Charlotte. Are there pictures of any other wearers?

The two unmarried Wied brothers are Prince Alexander (b1960) who has autism, and Prince Wolff-Heinrich (b 1979).

This is the only other good (sort of) picture I have of the Wied Tiara.

The Hesse Aquamarine tiara is my favorite aquamarine tiara. Love the classic and regal design. Just stunningly beautiful.

Couldn't agree more! What a beautiful piece!

Not sure how I feel about it parading down the runway however...

I want to have these impressive necklace.
Wow! That is really, really ostentatious!

Do we have an Thur und Taxis tiaras? Surely there must be some still out there with a little cash still left in the family.

The necklace is typical Gloria style,very big and visible! Usually I don´t like such big jewels (and I don´t wear such ostentatious pieces) ,but for her bubbly,joyful personality and character it seems to go well,it reminds me of the ancient Maya/Atztek-sculptures and art. I like the necklace on Gloria,very interesting accessoire:-)

I'm devastated ! Such a beautiful necklace! Their only tiara! And both with such important historical provenance, descended through generations! The most frequently seen Bavarian tiara will be gone for good.
It really spoils my day.

I always thought the tiara was horrible. However the necklace is simply breathtaking. What a gorgeous color that is.

Princess Kelly of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha's tiara she wore at Madeleine's wedding was magnificent! I don't have a lot of favorite turquoise tiaras but, this one is one of the best I have seen. Here is another photo of her wearing it.

Hello! I've been trying to find some more info on this Greek tiara:

it's seen here on Princess Sophia's head at an unnamed event: Queen Frederike with her brother George and his wife, Sophia. (Sophia is the first cousin of Pavlos I).


Now all I can find is that Archduchess Francesca at the Crown Prince's wedding in Denmark in 2004.

Does anybody have extra info on this delightful emerald wreath?

It's the Emerald Laurel Wreath Tiara, convertible to necklace, today owned by either Archduchess Francesca or her husband Archduke Karl.
The tiara is of Prussian provenance, although probably made in St Petersburg, and was a Silver Wedding gift to the Empress Augusta-Viktoria from her husband, Kaiser Wilhelm II, in 1905.
It passed to their only daughter Princess Viktoria-Luise of Prussia, who maried the Duke of Brunswick, later Head of the Royal House of Hanover.
Following Viktoria-Luise's death the Hanover family sold the tiara at auction and it was acquired by either the Habsburgs or Francesca's father, Baron von Thyssen-Bornemisza.

thank you!

Hi Warren,

thanks for the info! Has anyone come across any pictures/portraits of Augusta Viktoria or Viktoria Luise wearing the tiara/necklace?

I've image-searched tirelessly to no avail.

I think the Hesse Star tiara is awful. I think the design is way too much. One of the worst tiaras I have ever seen. Though, those earrings in the photo are breathtaking. They look a lot like Elizabeth II's pearl and diamond earrings.
