Can anyone help identify this tiara? It doesn't look like any of the tiaras the lux ladies have worn. xPresident and Mrs. Kennedy with Grand Duchess Charlotte and Prince Jean of Luxembourg, April 30, 1963. - John F. Kennedy Presidential Library & Museum

The apparent differentiation between the tiara elements may be a clue to it being the larger of the diamond floral tiaras.

The tiara very much reminds me of this one worn by grand duchess Hilda von Baden, née of Nassau. She had no children of her own, but I have no idea if she left jewellery to her Nassau relatives.

Could very well be. One of her other tiaras was worn by Princess Editha of Bavaria in the 1950's. Her moter Antonia was also one of Hilda's nieces.

I haven't seen this tiara on another Baden lady. So it's quite possible that it went to her niece.

That tiara is gorgeous! It goes great with red.

IDK, the color combination looks too Christmas-like to me and I'd have loved to see an updo with the tiara.

Gorgeous jewels and beautiful gown ... Just not together! She has magnificent diamonds which would have looked much better! Isn't the saying red and green should never be seen?!

Never heard that saying, but it's certainly true! I'm sure she had a diamond tiara or two she could have worn instead.

The colour combination worked well at the state visit to Portugal, honouring the national colours.
But here, with the light blue order, it's too much. The whole outfit seemed to be badly coordinated, imo.

The green of the emeralds actually clash with that shade of red!

I like dress and her jewels but not together. It's just doesn't look good IMO. This is one of my favorite lux tiara but need proper hairstyle to look nice. I remember that GD wore it at QMII's latest birthday events she looked much better, cause she paired it with neutral dress and even with similar hairstyle effect was better. Anyway kudos for making an effort. I hope for something nice today.

Nice jewels but she needs a hairdresser who knows how to do tiara hair properly.

Never been a real fan of this tiara- the necklace looks to small for her neck too- extender required...........?

Thank you! From what I can see, that's a lovely design and suits her so well. I love those pearl spikes.
