Jewels of the Belgian Nobility

Princess Alix of Ligne will get married this summer. So it seems a good idea to have a look at the jewels of the Belgian nobels.

Here is a blog post about a possible wedding tiara for Princess Alix. I would love to see better close-ups of the bandeau tiara the family has. It is difficult to make out it's design with the older pictures.

She will wear the de Ligne tiara worn by AD yolande of Habsbourg and Princess Christine de Ligne.

Her grandmother the Dowager Princess , Princess of Luxembourg wore the same tiara as her sisters

Her mother did not wear the Bragancia tiara but flowers

Quite odd that we have never seen a good picture of the Ligne tiara. There is also no photo of Princess Eleonora wearing it, while I would suspect she did so at f.e. the pre-wedding party of the HGD of Luxembourg. It will be great to get a better look of the tiara in June!

Of course, if the tiara that Princess AmÚlia wore is really property of the Ligne family, it may be an option too.

Considering the love f the princess for jewels (she designs them IIRC) I think we can thankfully be asured she won't follow her mother's example and will go without a tiara.

ADss Constanza wore a diamond tiara with a peacock pattern for her wedding:

The tiara was also worn by her mother:

It may be a Ligne tiara though, the family didn't get to keep many Habsburg jewels.

I too think that she'll wear the de Ligne tiara, but there still is a small possibility that Princess Alix will choose another option. But right now bridal tiaras are very popular, so I don't think that she'll choose flowers like her mother did.

The peacock tiara was also worn by Princess Yolande's daughter-in-law Baroness Marie Helene de Vogelsanck, her daughter Princess Alexandra and her grand-daughter-in-law Estelle de Saint-Romain.

Karl and Zita lost nearly all their jewels when they went into exile, and it really seem unlikely that there was a Habsburg tiara for their 3rd son. So I think that it is a de Ligne heirloom or it might have been bought for Princess Yolande.
