Devonshire Tiara

Does anyone have a picture of the great diamond tiara of the duchess of Devonshire, made by Skinner in 1892. I think the Royal-Magazin Duchess of Devonshire DIADEM - TIARA mix it up with the Derby tiara. In the book "Tiara" by Scarisbrick, the author says the design of the Derby one is very close to the Devonshire sample. I remember the Devonshire tiara from the V&A exhibition as being very heavy and massive not as light as the Derby version, but extremely regal and one of the most beatiful tiaras I have ever seen. Unfortunately I can´t find any modern close up picture of it, but I remember it from a brochure about Chatsworth. Can someone help me?

[quote=Warren]Of the Dukes of Marlborough.
Who owns the Marlborough tiara/Russian imperial tiara today?
I have heard it was bought in the 70´s by Imelda Marcos of the Philipines. Is it still existing or has it been broken up?

Refers to this tiara.

Mr Munn writes on page 406:
"it was sold in 1978 at auction...it was purchased by the London trade and ultimately acquired by Mrs Imelda Marcos, the wife of the President of the Philippines, who is believed to have asked a prominent French jeweller to dismantle it in order that the pearls and diamonds might be used to make jewellery that was more wearable."

Which begs the question: why acquire a superb Russian Imperial artefact and then request that it be broken up into bibs and bobs? :unhappy:

A Travesty!

What a beautiful tiara it was--one of the loveliest of the Russian pieces. I must agree with Warren--why in the world buy such a stunning piece of work and then dismantle it? What in the world is the point? I don't know what else to say--

Thanks, magnik, that really is a great site! It's part of the Victoria and Albert Museum website, which is a mine of information about the decorative arts.

The Essex tiara doesn't belong anymore to the Essex familly. It's now part of the Cartier museum. Cartier lent this tiara to Princeese Marguerite of Romania when she married Radu Duda.

Edwina Mountbatten, Countess Mountbatten of Burma Jewels

Hi everyone, I just wanted to start a new topic of Jewels. Does anyone know any other jewels that was worn by Countess Mountbatten. All I know is her beautiful tiara that she wore. (If I was a Princess I would want this tiara)

Does anyone have pictures of the ladies wearing tiaras at the state opening of parliament in the UK (other than HM). I've seen some pictures before, I think, but now that I'm interested I can't seem to find any.

Thanks

Why not start the tread about State opening of parliament in UK from the past to present or maybe State openings in Europe from the past to present??

Spanish Nobility and their jewels

Ok. many jewels not only British and German or Russian are here

I can assure you that there are some magnificent pieces in the hands of members of the Spanish nobility. The only problem is that they wear them very seldom. Sometimes you can see the odd tiara at a wedding and always worn by the bride. As already mentioned, the best known jewels belong to the Duchess of Alba, the woman with the longest list of titles in the world.

Well, good people, I will try again. I sign in and do all the red tape and then they tell me, after I have writtten a passionte, indeed too passionate babbling and that I must go back and refresh myself and log back in. Does this mean they want me to go home and take a bath?? Or what.

In any case I will try again. Sob. I just got to get out of here. All of these jewels together are just an ultra concentrated form of chocolate. They absolute fry my feeble brain. I am blissed out. Notice that I am not snarling at the powers that be but like the evil koala bears who live a life of stoned happiness on eucalyptus leaves, I am living a life of stoned happiness drooling over the royal forums and this last thread with all of these incredible goodies is almost more than my frail and delicate system can stand.

The jewels here are just magnificent and beyond belief. Words fail me, the master of loggorrhea. I must express my deepest gratitude to magnik and others for pandering to my mental illness and obsessions. These things just almost take the breath away. If I were to see the real things I would probably just bliss out and dissolve into space. Cheeers.

It means they want you to hit the Remember Me button when you log in, or this sort of mishap will continue to befall.

Elspeth, Oh She Who Must Be Obeyed,

Hommage, prostrations and obedience. Incense, flowers and jewels, including th tiara snitched from Imelda the Trash Shoe Marcos, may I kindly ask, with all due reverence and respect, (sotto voce in fear and trembling) WHAT ON EARTH IS THE REMEBER ME BUTTON???? Kindly remember that I am a computer mongoloid and simply do not understand these things, besides I have more important obsessions on my mind, ie tiaras, and chocolate. cheers.
