I am no fan of the reconstituted tiara but my understanding is that the reconstituted tiara included other larger acquamarine stones that HM had received from Brazil at other times.

I love aquamarines. Does anyone have a picture at hand of the reconstituted tiara?
Or is it quicker if I start digging into the archives?

Very dramatic tiara. The aquamarines are huge.

Cool

Many people have stated they don't like the Aquamarine and Burmese Ruby tiaras, but I like them.

Does anyone know where I can find information on the size of the Grand Duchess Vladimir Tiara? I am researching it for a school project and would like to try to find out possibly how many diamonds it is made up of, how many carats, the height, anything would be helpful. Can't seem to find anything about it...thanks!

Someone on Glittering MB posted this video of the Swedish state visit to the UK back in the day and at the end I can't for the life of me figure out what necklace EII is wearing? At first I thought it might be the emerald necklace from the grevilles but then the shape looks more like the aquamarines. You also get a nice live shot of the scroll tiara on P.Margaret.

Yes, this has me intrigued as well. When you look at the setting of the large pendant stone in the video, it doesn't look like the aquamarine in some photos I have seen. However, the photo of the suite in Menkes (page 135) does. I know the Queen had various adaptions made to the set so I assume the video is a record of the necklace in its original state.
The following images are quite helpful as a comparison:

The aquamarine parure

Polly's earlier post (396) is also very helpful.

Cool

In the video it looks like the aquamarine necklace in it's original state before adaptions were made. I think the tiara and necklace were refashioned in the late 1960's and this film was made in 1954.

I think your correct, it looks like the large pendant in the video is now the large centre piece of the tiara. I have to say, the Scroll tiara on Margaret looks far more substantial live than in the few photos we have. I hope to see it again soon.

It is definitely the aquamarine necklace with matching earrings - the Queen looks quite lovely. How beautiful Princess Margaret was.

I agree, to me it appears like the accquamarine necklace before it was altered.

I think y'all are correct about it being the pre-alteration aquamarine. The stones' color appear so dense in b/w that I thought it was the Goldman emerald necklace, but that one (after looking it up) has pear as the main drop, rather than emerald cut, emeralds. It is also more delicate. Beautiful!!!

I watched Barbara Walters promote her interview with India Hicks in preparation for the current royal wedding, and she mentioned that India's mother, Lady Pamela (who'd been a bridesmaid to then-Princess Elizabeth) had said that on Elizabeth's wedding day they realized the tiara they'd intended to use was broken, so they then fetched another - the fringe. Does anyone know which tiara they'd originally intended to use?

I always understood that it was the fringe that was meant to be used and then that it broke while trying to place it but then quickly fixed, you can even see in the wedding pictures a gap between some of the spikes. Maybe India misunderstood what her mom meant or the tv channel switched things up?
