Thanks Stefan,
I don't remember if the Queen wore the Nine Province Tiara abroad ? He Hairdresser said it was dfficult to fixe the heavy tiara on her fine hair. It is therefore she wore always her Deco tiara.

She wore its base as Choker.

Queen Fabiola wore the base of the Nine Province Tiara as tiara, such as Queen Astrid and Princess Lilian for the State Visit of President Coty in 1958.

Queen Mathilde wore it for her first Official Portrait because Queen Fabiola was her example to follow.

I think the spikes were used for the Arches and if not , they reduced the bill.

I wonder also what ever became with the base of the Stockholm tiara which uper part Princess Lilian wore also as brooch ?

i wonder where is the Stockholm pearl brooch is nowadays ?

Weren't the spikes mere metal pins with the big diamonds on top? And the big diamonds are still there, they usually fill the arches (Fabiola also wore the tiara with 'empty' arches). I'm not sure they would keep the metal pins.

You are right the spikes were metal pins.
For her Wedding Princess Astrid received a tiara with spikes and on top 10 huge diamonds.

She did not like the tiara and changed it for an arch tiara.

I believe she had to pay and gave the base of the Stockholm tiara we never saw again.

Both of these pieces are so incredibly stunning. The necklace is so exquisite and I just love the design of the earrings.

The diamond necklace worked very well with the Queen Elisabeth’s Diamond Bandeau,which I believe is still owned by Queen Paola.

Correct ! Princess Astrid received the deco tiara as birthgift for Prince Albert born on June 6th 1934.
I realise that King Albert I died on february 1934.
So Queen Elisabeth who was devasted after her husband tragic accident gave her own tiara as present for her newborn grandson which name was Albert.

I don't remember if the deco tiara was a present to her, what I know She ordered herself the Cartier tiara (my avatar)

The belgian Kings are more interested in cars, yachts (Albert) , private helicopter (Philippe) than in jewels....

I never understood why Queen Paola never wore the lower part of the Nine Province tiara.

It didn't work well as a choker on Queen Paola,the tiara is not one of my favourites.
