Here she is seen in some Leiningen event wearing a small tiara which looks more like the necklace converted tiara:
This looks somewhat similar to that which Crown Princess Katherine wore at William and Kate's wedding, perhaps she borrowed it from Princess Brigitta for the wedding?

It's similar in size,but I don't think it's the same...

I have seen pictures of Queen Marie wearing the emerald tiara, the gold tiara and the fringe. But I have no idea how the other two, the brilliant tiara and the Cartier tiara look like. Does anybody please have pictures?

Well,Queen Marie had 5 of them in total:

Her first tiara was the golden one posted above and the only one still available to the family...It is said that it was her maiden tiara which she brought from Romania.

Her second tiara was the famous emerald tiara bought by King Alexander I from Grand Duchess Maria Pavlovna jr. as an engagement gift for his future wife...posted above and later sold to Van Cleef and Arpels...

Her third tiara was the brilliant tiara gifted to her by the people of the Kingdom of Serbs,Croats and Slovenians on occasion of her wedding in 1922.This tiara was guarded as the family treasury along with the coronation Crown,scepter and the train...It is said that this tiara never left Yugoslavia and that it is still in the vaults of the National Bank of Serbia...

Her fourth tiara was a Cartier gift tiara(along with a matching necklace) from King Alexander I on the occasion of birth of their first son King Peter II in 1923.When King Peter II married she gifted this tiara to his wife Queen Alexandra...Queen Alexandra later sold this tiara to an unknown buyer.

Her fifth tiara was the fringe diamond tiara that belonged to her aunt Princess Beatrice who sold it after the first civil started in Spain...

Well,I am not sure,but here is a picture of young Queen Maria wearing unknown tiara:



Here is a picture of Queen Alexandra wearing unknown tiara which again could be the tiara in question:

Thank you, Marc23.
The first tiara is new to me, it might be one of them.
The tiara worn by Alexandra looks like a piece from the 1930s to me, when this type of halo tiara was quite popular (Kate Middleton's wedding tiara was from that era.) So I think that it wasn't a gift in 1922 or 1923. Maybe someone else knows more?

Well,could be,I just don't know for sure...

Apart from the Emerald tiara,this was the only other tiara we have known or at least seen Alexandra was wearing...and since we know that Emerald tiara was only borrowed from Queen Marie,who kept it in a London safe and who later sold it to Van Cleef and Arpels,this picture could leave a clue about the other tiara that was gifted to her on the occasion of her marriage to Peter II and sold later as her possession to an unknown buyer...

I am again not sure,but the portrait is painted while Queen was young,probably at the time after her wedding and the most proper thing to do would be to paint her with a tiara she was gifted from the people of her new Kingdom...

There could be also a reason that we haven't seen any other pictures of this tiara and that could be because as it is said in the article,this people's gift tiara was treasured with the rest of treasury in national Bank,along with the Coronation Crown and sceptre and therfor not at quick disposal to the Queen like the rest of the tiaras were...

Interestingly,the birth gift tiara was also made by Cartier,as was Halo tiara

Yes, Cartier made several halo tiaras in the 1930's, because that style was highly fashionable at that decade. The Begum Aga Khan also owned one, which was made in 1934.

In the 1920's the fashion was more for bandeau tiaras worn low on the forehead, like on the the painting of Queen Marie.

Well,maybe this could be the birth gift tiara,as it also says that it had a matching necklace(and there is a similar shape necklace painted),so it could fit into your description of Cartier jewelry at that time...

You are right, that seems likely.
I found another pic of her here: GeneAll.net - Maria, princess of Romania
But I'm not sure if that is a tiara or another kind of ornament.

I think I have read somewhere years ago that it was a silver bandeau,but again,I am not sure...maybe I mixed it up...

We know from the article that both mystery tiaras were were made of brilliants...the one which is still probably in National Bank vaults and the one she gifted to Queen Alexandra,which she later sold to an unknown buyer...

I am not good with recognizing and matching faces -especially Marie too well! Is this her wedding picture or is this someone else? If so.... Oops! I found this on one of the many boards I was looking at and it was under "balkin" royals but did not say who she was. She looks like Marie -is quite beautiful too!

This 865 brilliant stone tiara was auctioned off in 1960,along with big Serbian white eagle diamond brooch,which was a gift from King Alexander I...Her last official picture(4th one down right in the picture) was made just in order to show off the splendor of tiara which was to be auctioned off...

Both peaces were sold of to Levi Cohen,who bought it for New York jeweler Harry Winston...

Here is Maria wearing some of her tiaras:




and a better picture of her wearing this unknown tiara with obviously a matching necklace:



And a little bit bigger picture of her wearing this bandeau:

Okay, so could this possibly be Marie on her wedding day? I found this and it stated that this was Queen Marie -there were so many pictures of the Queen and her mother, that I was not sure if it was her or her mother. I thought she wore a tiara that was a gift from her new people on her wedding day to Aleksander I, however, I do not see one in this picture.

She did not wear any tiara on her wedding day,but some kind of golden or silver wire bandeau around her head...

Here is one more picture from the wedding taken in Church where you can see better:

It's likely the same tiara she wore at Crown Princess Victoria's wedding in 2010 of which no details are known.

v Crown Princess Katherine, Stockholm 2010
