Not an impressive tiara but I find it beautiful.

There’s something very special and unique about this bandeau bracelet. I think it’s very creative to use it as a tiara.

Prefer it as a bracelet than a tiara.

A stunning and elegant tiara. A very regal tiara.

It's a favorite of mine, but I'm not sure I would describe it as regal. Once her husband ascended the throne and she had access to larger pieces, the Queen Mum never wore it again. But it is a good starter tiara, possibly for a young royal bride who bears a strong resemblance to her great-grandmother…

We have two royal weddings coming up and this one keeps reemerging as a favorite for a bridal tiara.

I was wondering why is that the Queen hasn't worn this parure ever....

It's so beautiful and it would pair up great with the Vladimir tiara. Or loan it to Catherine to wear with the Lover's Knot tiara!

From Her Majesty's Jewel Vault: Queen Alexandra's Wedding Parure

Assuming it's still intact (the necklace) she just might not care for it. She's worn pieces of the parure (brooch and earrings) so maybe the necklace is not to her taste.

Looks like the tiara has been 'disposed of'.

Camilla and then Kate will have access to the rest and if they like it we might see it at some point.

It was a big mistake for that tiara to leave the Royal Collection. That was a very impressive piece.

The necklace was used a lot by QEQM, and I suspect it is lying waiting for Camilla to use as consort to the King. HM already has access to Queen Victoria's diamond and pearl necklace, and probably did not want to use another necklace.

As were a lot of the pieces that ended up with the Gloucesters, Kents, Harewoods etc. Queen Mary built up a large collection of jewels, and dispersed a lot of it as well - all within her right to do so!

The Royal Order of Sartorial Splendor, quoting The Queen's Diamonds, says that the tiara was left Princess Victoria and that it was "disposed of by her." Victoria remained unmarried so she could act as a companion to her mother. After Alexandra's death, she lived a quiet life in the country until her own death 10 years later. It's possible that she really had no need of a tiara.

What amazes me, though, is why her brother George didn't snap up the tiara for his wife, or how Queen Mary didn't offer to purchase the tiara from her.

George V died a few weeks after his sister, so I am not sure if he had the chance to snap it up.

I wonder when Princess Victoria, aka Toria, disposed of the tiara? l don't think she had any financial hardship, so I suspect that she gifted or bequeathed the tiara, and it left the family via the recipient. My chief suspects are the Kents because Toria was close to her nephew and left him her house. Furthermore the Kents did have financial hardships and are known to have sold jewelry and other assets.

I wonder whether someone could contact Hugh Roberts about the fate of this tiara because I've found his wording-disposed of-very frustrating. Didn't he know exactly what happened to it or didn't he consider it important to say what exactly happened to it?
The possibility of ending up with the Kents and then sold quietly because of financial problems is quite plausible...
Or maybe it was sold by Princess Victoria and the money used for charity...

I agree; I've been waiting for it to reappear again and I do think Camilla will be the person to wear it.

There’s just some extra special about The Queen Mother wearing the Grenville ‘Honeycomb’ Tiara. Camilla wears it well, but Queen Mother brought an extra quality to the tiara when she wore it.
