Thanks for the info. I had forgot about this tiara. I don't know when Jane or Sarah will ever wear this tiara, unless they attend Charles's coronation in the future.

This Portland Ruby ring is absolutely stunning! What a beautiful color.

In 2010 this ring, and other Portland jewels, was auctioned from an anonymous buyer.

I'm just imagining that superb Portland tiara encircling my head and wearing the other sapphire jewels from that suite. That gorgeous ruby and diamond ring wouldn't go amiss, either, I'm certainly willing to mix different color stones.

2005 Wedding of Hugh van Cutsem & Lady Rose Astor

The Tiara
source: post #25 Van Cutsem-Astor wedding thread
"Two sprays of mixed flowers, entirely pavéd with diamonds, meet at the large, open wild rose in the center. The sprays can also be worn as brooches. The diamonds, set in flowers, are recorded in the Heathcote inventory of 1786 and have descended in the same family since..."

The tiara is named as being the property of Baroness Nancy Willoughby de Eresby, 28th Baroness Willoughby de Eresby, who apparently was one of the train bearers for Queen Elizabeth at her coronation in 1953.

The mother of the present owner of the tiara (the Baroness) and the grandfather of the bride were siblings, both children of Waldorf Astor, 2nd Viscount Astor.

I know nothing about tiaras but the brides didn't look good it was just plopped on her head and looked too big.

That is a beautiful tiara, but from the way that she is wearing it, it looks like she is playing dress up. The dress was gorgeous, but the tiara really took away from it. So sad, beautiful bride, gorgeous dress and wonderful tiara, just all put together rather badly.

That tiara is so beautiful! Gorgeous design, very medieval like. It's now one of my favorites.

It looks a bit too large/heavy but its still very beautiful,the veil however really doesn't do it any favours at all.

Ha. If I owned that tiara I would wear it around the house if I had no where to go!

It's just magnificent and certainly a "big gun" tiara, but if it were arranged properly on the head with better tiara hair, she'd have knocked this look out of the park.

Agree! Let's not blame the tiaras, it's the hair!
Both the Northumberland and lady Astor's very tall tiara would look beautiful with a consultation with the royal Swedish hairdressers!

typical rookie mistake!

Hi Warren,
Thanks for redirecting my post to the correct thread! Internet savvy I may be, but it always takes me some time to adjust to a new platform! Forums are new to me!

Merci, again!
