Oh QN has some beautiful ones...let me search for a link...

have a look at this page:
http://www.theroyalforums.com/forums...Noor+jewellery

and these links
Queen Noor Jewellery
Queen Noor Jewellery

Princess Muna

I've never seen a very clear picture of this tiara but it looks like it'd be perfect for framing a beautiful, formal updo. Im not sure if this is Queen Rania's style but you never know. She could've worn it on her coronation day, the tiara would've contained that dramatic updo of hers. Its not big and heavy like some of the other tiaras out there (a few of those are quite vulgar). QR's taste in jewellery tends to be on the minimal and elegant rather than the big and dramatic side.

Thanks for the links Humera, I really like Princess Muna's, it's not a clear photo but it seems quite interesting, I'm surprised Rania hasn't borrowed it off her mother-in-law! I would have done!

Maybe the mother-in-laws didn't want to lend a tiara to Rania, I'm not sure why they would have a reason for doing this but it could be one reason. I was suprised that Queen Noor didn't give Rania a tiara when she became Queen, it's not like she doesn't have any to lend her, Rania had to end up borrowing one from her sister-in-law! That looks really bad for Queen Noor, maybe Noor was being tiara stingy. Plus it would have saved the King and his taxpayers a lot of money if Noor would have given Rania one of her tiara's.

Noor's tiaras could be an investment. Maybe she would like to pass them on to her own daughters, that's why she didn't offer them to Rania. Plus they could be gifts from her husband, a beautiful reminder of her life with King Hussein and therefore it might be difficult for her to really part with them.

I think the tiaras will go to Noor's daughters and perhaps even the daughters-in-law.
I never expected QN to give them to Rania, I have just often wondered about her lending them to her. After all out of all of KH's wives, she seems to have the most number of tiaras. And QR has already borrowed Queen Alia's many times. Which doesnt surprise me because she always seems to have an excellent relationship with Haya, but the same can be said for her relationship with Princess Muna.
Im sure if the tiaras belonged to the royal court rather than to QN, Rania would've had no problem borrowing them.
Im not trying to pass a judgement on QN. Im just curious about the whole thing. But I do confess that I'd think her a lot more generous if she had, at least at the beginning, let QR use one of her tiaras.
Perhaps it wasnt convenient. Or maybe it was easier for Rania to exclusively borrow Haya's tiara for all the formal engagements of her first year or so as Queen.

Perhaps it was bad enough for QN to see another woman take over her position and it would have been just a bit too much to see her wearing your jewels too. I am not casting judgments on any concerned but offering up a possible reason. After all, I think QN is only human after all and it was made very clear by KA and QR that QN was 'history' so to speak.

I think a new tiara will be commisioned by QR at some point anyway

Agreed, it's not as though she had a shortage of them! But then in fairness, she was Queen for the longest so it's only inevitable that she would have the most tiaras.

When Kings die their widows cease to be Queen consorts. So its not like Queen Rania snatched the position away from Noor. The position is rightfully hers as she is the wife of the reigning monarch.
Thats not even an issue at this point.
And there's no proof that KA and QR ever made Noor feel unwelcome. Those stories are based more on speculation and gossip, mostly to make the new King and Queen at the time appear in an unfavourable light. Just like Prince Hassan and Princess Sarvath became the target of similar stories.
It was infact Noor who has publicly said that she chose to give the new couple their space.

anyway Im getting off topic...about the tiaras, Queen Rania does seem to have atleast two of her own by now. And she made it clear at the beginning that getting one wasn't a priority for her. I would expect her to acquire more as the years go by, especially since she doesnt wear big, heavy jewels.

Just to clarify what I was saying Humera, I didn't say QR snatched anything away from QN so no need to jump down my throat for that.

Secondly, of course QN was no longer Queen Consort - that was obvious but even so her position was taken over so to speak as she was no longer the number one lady at the Hashemite court - which can't have been easy after so many years of being first lady.
Finally to get back on topic - are you privy to inside information????? I never said Rania's top priority was to get another tiara - just that I wouldn't be surprised if at some point over the coming years, that she might.

We are entitled to express opinions other than yours - none of us knows these women personally so everything written here is just opinion and conjecture anyway. I wanted to express my opinion and stay on topic. If jewels belong to Noor personally then she is under no obligation to lend them. Sorry everyone but I felt I had to say this as I felt like I was being picked on for expressing an opinion :(

PS. When I said QN was 'history', i meant that a new era had begun.
Also I think a tiara with rubies would look divine with Rania's hair.

That was a general comment I made referring to something QR said in an interview for TIME magazine when she first became Queen. I didnt attribute it to you.
Perhaps you shouldnt be so quick to presume the worst and assume that someone is "jumping down your throat" if they happen to disagree with you.
Nor am I or anyone else implying that Noor is under an obligation to lend their tiara to QR. Similar discussions have taken place at TRF with reference to other royals. Naturally people have a curiosity as to how these things work in the various royal courts. No one is out to imply that any royal should be forced to lend their jewels to someone.

I love that watch! Yes, I see diamonds for the hour markers and it's definitely gold. Very unique and beautiful. I can't place the manufacturer but it really is exquisite!

I think diamonds definitely suit Queen Rania's hair and coloring but rubies would be gorgeous, too. I am partial to sapphires. I've seen some yellow/golden ones which might really look fantastic when paired with diamonds in a tiara setting for her.

Queen Rania with a new pair of earring I think at the celebrations of Jordanian Independence Day(25th May):

Interesting "hoop" style earrings when Rania watched a play on traffic safety (16 May, originally posted by asturiana)

Rania wore these earrings on 22 May during the WEF in Sharm-el-Sheikh, I think they are the same as the earrings she wore to Kuwait on the 21 May (courtesy of fanletizia)

The also look like the earrings she wore in India and Paris kindly posted by Humera on the previous page #117.

These earrings worn in the US, when Rania attended the Time Magazine Gala look the same although the picture isn't very clear. (courtesy of haanmr)

Rania wore these pretty drop earrings on 15 March when she met with retired military personnel, I think she's worn them before

At this point, I'm going to step out on a limb and say something which I know will be very unpopular. I don't actually think that the Emerald Ivy tiara is as ugly as everyone makes it up to be. It is shockingly different from anything else out there, but as an individual piece, I think it's actually quite nice. My advice to Rania on this one is just to ensure that it coordinates with her outfit/is complemented by her hairstyle.

I'm with you!:)

I love the Emerald tiara. It compliments her Majesty's long beautiful brown hair and amazing skin. There isn't a royal out there who could pull it off like Queen Rania.

Never fear you're not the only one out there who loves that tiara! It's one of my all-time favourites, I've never quite understood why it's so disliked.

Is this a new tiara? Or a Jordanian heirloom? I've never seen it before. It's a very pretty tiara but Rania's hair is all wrong, it would be better with an updo.

It's a lovely tiara. But I'm not sure about the way it looks with the hair loose. Guess Rania was going for the romantic look.
