It doesn't seem likely at all, when CP Margarita got married she borrowed the Essex tiara from Garrards in London, clearly the Romanians have very little jewellery left for them if CP Margarita had to borrow a tiara (albeit a stunning one) for her own wedding.

Do the Romanian royals only have use of this tiara?
I maybe wrong but I haven't seen the Crown Princess wear anything else with the exception the tiara for her wedding,which was on loan I believe?

It is possible they had to sell of a lot of the jewellery to maintain a certain level of lifestyle but I still find it hard to believe there is only one tiara in the family. This said, I haven't seen the Crown Princess (or her sisters) in anything but the Greek Key Tiara either.

As for Margarita's wedding tiara, it was indeed a loan; she wore the Essex tiara currently owned by Cartier.

Unfortunately it is all that is left from the Romanian royal jewels...
First the bulk of the jewels were lost in the WWI in Russia, then after King Ferdinand gave a free hand to Queen Mary to replace the lost jewels she bequeathed the majority of her jewels to her daughters and those that went to his sons Carol and Nicolas ended up with their respective wives and probably sold.
The Greek tiara was gifted directly to Princess Helen by Q Mary and her coronation necklace with the huge sapphire to King Michael. During her lifetime Princess and later queen Helen has never worn(publicly) any other major piece of jewelry. She had some pearl necklaces a couple of diamond brooches and some diamond and pearl earrings.
The coronation necklace was probably broken up and sold, or there be maybe a part of it left....
Queen Anne and pr. Margarita has worn on several occasions a sapphire demi-parure but I hadn't seen it in the last 20 years, so it may be sold already...
So I'm afraid that there's only the Greek key tiara and some modern diamond necklaces.

Yes I had thought there would be another smaller tiara but it appears not

I wonder why she did not wear the Greek key? Does anyone know or has anyone heard any reason?

This tiara on Queen Marie is simply horrible! Just way too much and ostentatious for my taste.

It's more of a headdress of sorts than what we would call a "tiara" or a "jewelled head ornament".
In any case it's very Queen Marie, and she knew it.

I love the Greek key tiara and I think it goes especially well on the head of Princess Margarita. She has the wide cheekbones and round head to hold up such a tiara.
The one pictured on Queen Marie IS stupendous, and would frighten some people who had to sit next to her at dinner. I have a feeling (just a surmise) that the slavic countries at one point had cloth head-dresses in that shape, and when they developed tiaras they made them of a similar height and configuration. I did some Russian dances as a youngster at Ivan Novikoff's ballet school in Seattle, and we had cloth head-dresses of a similar height and shape for these dances.

Couldn't agree more about the Greek Key tiara and Crown Princess Margarita! It looks beautiful on her -she wears it well.

It sure is. Another spectacular piece from Grand Duchess Maria Pavlovna that was purchased by Queen Marie after the Revolution. Unfortunately, it was sold for a song after her death.

It reminds me of Marie of Yugoslavia/Serbia and her Emerald tiara that the horrible jewelers Van Clef and Arpels replaced with paste!

This is just exquisite!!!

Yes, I completely agree! This one and the emerald (former) of Marie of Yugoslavia are my favorite.
