Grandest - maybe. But also one of the ugliest, in my opinion.
The base is just dreadful and the stars itself make the tiara look like something a fairy godmother in a cartoon would wear.
Can't imagine anyone looking good in that.

Queen Maria Pia's Star Tiara

Hmm, Queen Maria Pia's Star Tiara is somewhat lacking in the design department, to put it mildly.
'Elegant' would not be a word used to describe it.

However, if for no other reason, the tiara has some interest in that the upper stars are attached to springs - en tremblant - so that they move slightly as the wearer's head moves.

The Württemberg Ruby Star Tiara is a little too much for me. I think the tiara would look beautiful without the stars.

^^^I agree, those towering stars look like lollipops! I wonder if they're detachable like Maria Pia's tiara to be worn as brooches, on a necklace or as hair ornaments.

After watching the video where the designer explains the work involved in the making of the tiara I can really appreciate the art and value of the piece. It was truly made for Princess Charlene, very unique and in accordance with her style . . .

Here is Queen Emma's Diamond tiara with diamond stars on it. I am assuming those are the same stars that Maxima wore on her wedding tiara. I love the tiara and the stars but not together. I just think it's not a great combination. However, it would be interesting to see that version today.

I agree. While I love star brooches, they can be strange on tiaras. Maxima can pull it off as she can pull off a lot of jewels and a lot of styles. I cant wait to see what she comes up with as Queen!!!

Neither like or dislike this tiara. Also, I don't like it as a wedding tiara.
