Once again, I love tutti-frutti. I keep hinting to hubby that I need a piece, but the price of a quality piece remains a pesky little sore point for him.
The photo of bandeau/tiara which Warren posted is, regrettably, not displaying the piece to its best advantage, the V&A museum is not displaying it terribly well. However, it is interesting to note that the piece is considered to be important enough that it can't leave the country.

For those who may have missed it, the Mountbatten tutti frutti tiara can be seen in a video link posted here.
If you're not interested in tutti frutti, the video also shows lots of DIAMONDS and other glittering trinkets.

Oh Thomas, sigh, rather than taking the thread off-topic, why don't you explore the Crowns thread in this very forum?

Holy Schnikies! That collar looks totally like something Cleopatra would wear, or her alter ego La Liz!

The carved emerald drop earrings are unbelievable! And, the collar necklace, well, it's nothing less than art, in my opinion.

I adore the earrings. They are absolutely magnificent. I never realised that carved gems could be as wonderful as cut ones. Ah well, you live and you learn and I have to say that in general my opinion of tutti frutti is open to change.

Oh Warren, Most Noble and patient, you have somewhat missed the point. The crown of the now unfortunately deposted King of Nepal, another one of those countries that have gone off the deep end and is now one of those ghastly republics, is actually a tutti-frutti crown. It is really quite something, not my taste exactly but really unforgetable. I understand the good King has not handed the bauble over to the vile Marxist Maoist crazies who have now gained power in that benighted country and who are no doubt salivating over the prospect of getting their grubby hands upon it. The funds for the sale of which, etc will according to a well rehursed script disapprear into some comrades/revolutionaries Swiss bank accounts. Cheers.

Though it pains me greatly to enter into public disagreement with you Thomas I feel duty bound to advise that the Nepalese Royal Crown is a product of the 1960s, commissioned by King Mahendra from the remnants of a much older crown. Although cabochon and carved emeralds may be elements of a tutti frutti design, they are not in themselves "tutti frutti", just as the Cambridge Emeralds are not tutti frutti.

Oh that feels so much better. Yes, yes, yes! It really is really ugly. :w00t2:

I'm back in the zone. The hamster is back on the wheel. Tutti Frutti is ugly and Princess Caroline's pieces are truely the only exception to the rule.

very, Well, Oh MN Warren, I defer to your wisdom in these matters. It is then New Tutti Frutti, which sounds even more fun than Old Tutti Frutti, after all Ms Madonna Johnson in her New Tutti Frutti diamond, emerald, turquoise, black pearl, ruby, and yellow sapphire ensemble sounds soOOOOO much better than Ms. MJ in her OLd 1920's Tutti Frutti ensemble bought at auction from the estate of the late bankrupt duke of Nonsense now doesn't it. My only comment is that I just love crowns, no matter how tacky as long as the gemstones and metal are real and not automobile plate glass and gold paint. The crown of Nepal was and is such a wacky contraption with all those dangling sapphires, and I just love sapphires, that I have had to go out and make a fool of myself over it. But the Nepal situation is a compelling argument, as if anyone here needs one, for the virtues of a constitutional monarchy, crowns, jewels and the whole nine yards. cheers.

Ps. Those are sapphires aren't they or have I just gone not only bonkers but blind as a bat as well. I have GOT to get back on the chocolate. Like the Koala bear and his eucalyptus, I just cannot function with out it. Gasp!!!! They are Emeralds. Oh No. Cheers.

Agreed. It is so tacky. The jewels would be beautiful on their own, but together, they do not work.

I rather like the tutti-frutti jewelry. With the appropriate outfit, I think they are magnificent.

I think you would get more use from a simpler jewel. As Tim Gunn would say, "That's a lot of look."
