The Royal Order of Sartorial Splendor: Tiara Thursday: The Five Aquamarine Tiara

I love aquamarines but, I do not like the Brazillian Aquamaine tiara. I think the design is awful. I like the Five Aquamarine better but, it's not that great to me.

Do anyone have some information on this Tiara Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II is wearing? Does she still wear it these days?

It's the tiara her father George VI gave her (along with her sapphire necklace) on her wedding 1947.

HM has some amazing tiaras that I have never seen before. This sapphire tiara would look nice on Catherine hehehe

Does anyone know how many personal/private tiaras HM owns?

No one does. At least, no one who'd share the information with public. The Queen is purported to have the largest and most valuable private jewellery collection in the world, including the tiara department. But the exact quantity of the tiaras is a mystery.

The necklace and earrings were from her father but the Queen herself bought the tiara in the 60s

Agreed, the necklace and earrings came from George VI, but the tiara was bought by the Queen herself. It is rumoured to have been a necklace owned by a Belgian princess or heiress, which the Queen bought and put on a frame.

Tonight ladies and gentleman we'll be seeing - the Grand Duchess Vladimir of Russia Tiara. Also Queen Victoria's Diamond Tiara.
Indonesian President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono And His Wife

Better picture to follow I imagine.

Angela Kelly has revealed a few secret of dressing Queen Elizabeth II. In the photographs of the Her Majesty's dress' was this delicious shot of her sapphire jewel parure.

I love that there are 3 different rings.

That's an interesting view of that tiara -- it's so rare to see their backs. Also...HM keeps her jewels in a shoe box?

Not sure they are stored in the "shoe box", but merely "served up" when she is to wear them in that pink contraption.

Possibly upwards of 30.

It looks like the tension has been released from the frame and the jewelled portion has "flopped over" and is only attached loosely.
Many tiaras have a locking device or mechanism (often requiring a special tool) which allows the frame's tension to be adjusted.
It's apparent from the picture that when in storage the tension is reduced to near-zero.

Thank you for that interesting picture, I love seeing the jewels like this. Just sitting there waiting for HM to pick them up and wear them. I also love that there are 3 rings to choose from, because sometimes your just not sure which sapphire ring you want to wear!
