That is indeed a historic tiara; it's the Oriental Circlet tiara and was made for Queen Victoria (and designed by Prince Albert). It originally contained opals, but Queen Alexandra thought they were unlucky and had them replaced with rubies when she became Queen and wanted to wear the tiara. I believe this tiara is one of the pieces of jewellery left by Victoria specifically for the use of future queens.

It's one of the two tiaras that the Queen Mother wore regularly since being widowed; since the Queen Mother's death, the Queen has worn it at least once.

Joesfine I would like to know if the picture of the Queen Mother wearing a tiara almost like a headband is a wedding picture. Thank you.

Hi Trudie; welcome to TRF!

That photo isn't a wedding picture; her wedding outfit can be seen in post #2 of this thread in our wedding forum:

Queen Mother's ruby brooches

I am very keen to have photos of the QM's ruby brooches. Please only the rubies.
She was given a gift, in Australlia, about 1972, of a stylised hibiscus brooch with Burmese rubies and diamonds.

I have read the description, but never seen a picture. If anyone has, I would be delighted to know and to see it.
She, of coarse, has the pair of R&D from Mrs. Greville.

Someone asked for a pic of the Queen Mother wearing the Teck circle tiara--as that has been posted, I will post this link to the Queen Mother wearing the Teck Crescent Tiara (one of my very favorite tiaras!)

Tiara QEII

Once Elizabeth became Queen Consort, she selected Victoria's Oriental Ruby & Diamond Tiara and the George III Fringe Diamond Tiara from the Crown Collection. After the death of Lady Greville, she inherited the Boucheron Diamond Honeycomb Tiara, which she later augmented with additional diamonds made into arches by Cartier. This became her primary tiara until her death, but she also wore the Oriental Ruby one with her ruby parure.

All of The Queen Mother's jewels were left to The Queen after her death. The crown pieces can only be worn by a reigning Queen or Queen Consort, but the others belong to The Queen's personal collection. She gave Camilla the Honeycomb diamond tiara and Queen Mary's Delhi Durbar tiara for her personal use.

It's even more impressive with all FIVE strands.

Did QE actually give Camilla the tiara? I thought the Queen loaned it.

'Given' to Camilla for her personal use, but not Camilla's to keep.

They still belong to HM the Queen

The Hibiscus brooch is very pretty and obviously appreciated by the Queen who has worn is once or twice since her mother's death.

Where is this "Lady Greville" coming from - she was the Hon Mrs Ronald Greville.
