While I can't swear to it. I do believe QM's diamond loop tiara was dismantled.
I would like to see the Rundell brought out for this wedding. Maybe even with the stars attached. Diamond stars seem to be popular for royal brides.....

Too funny and very true! My computer screen almost got a coffee bath though.

Mia_mae: Your latest post makes good sense, even if we (and millions of others) will miss seeing the bling that only royalty can do with propriety.

If true, then it definitely makes sense that Catherine would wear a much-lower profile tiara like the Strathmore or the Scroll (or something new created for her). The other tiaras, including the Lover's Knot Tiara, would look too top-heavy with her hair down.

Don't get me wrong it looks to be healthy but too long for my taste.

I would love to see the Rundell brought out, too, along with all the rest of Alexandra's wedding jewels. It would be an ideal move during an era of austerity, after all - economy's down the drain? Just go shopping in your closet!

One of the things that I don't think many are taking into consideration is the bride's height - she's tall, although I'm not sure she's as tall as some accounts I've read. But tall girls wear the high tiaras well (I think of Victoria of Sweden). The lower tiaras like the Strathmore and the scroll just wouldn't register as well. Miss Middleton could wear the Rundell, the fringe and the Kokoshnik beautifully. I can also see her wearing the Vladimir without any of the hanging pendants - I think for a wedding look that they'd overwhelm (as would the Lover's Knot).

Davids Bridal in the US (plus a few stores in Canada) appears to be getting ready to sell replicas of the potential tiaras

I am of mixed opinions of Davids Bridal doing this. For some reason I don't feel its right for a bazillion Strathmore Roses floating around out there yet on the other hand, it would be a unique chance to wear the "crown jewels". From what I've seen on the Facebook page, its getting a lot of positive feedback but at this time they are NOT for sale.

I would think that the House of GRAFF would like to create something tasteful as well as spectacular considering their salon is in London and also having the greatest collection of important jewels in the world.

I think William will want her to wear one of Diana's tiaras as sort of a remberance and a way of including her memory in the wedding.

The GoGB&I tiara is my favorite of all HM's headpieces...didn't I read that young girls throughout GB contributed money to purchase it for May of Teck as she then was? And that the Queen calls it "Granny's tiara" and favours it because it is light and easy to wear... Anyway, I seem to recall reading that in either the Field or Menkes jewelry books. Makes sense.

But I very much doubt that Catherine will wear that for the wedding. Perhaps the Middletons will buy one for her...you can pick up quite a decent fender for around a hundred thousand dollars. And maybe her mum will lend her a pair of earrings for the day, as I believe Diana's mother did for her own daughter...

So, do we think pearls, or a diamond choker, or no necklace at all?

Actually I think that if we do see the Lover's Knot, that will be the main reason why she does wear it.

I'm leaning towards pearls but then it all depends on the neckline of the dress too. Either pearls or no necklace at all.

Its a shame that a lot of British royal crowns have not been used for years.Like Queen Victorias shappire tiara.Kate should wear that tiara(Her wedding day or another event)because it matches her ring.I know it was Victorias but it deserves to shine not pile in dust forever.

Obviously he didn't have to sign a confidentiality agreement. Fire him and his 15 - 16 "assistants asses! Do not let his feet touch the floor.

That's nonsense , Diana wore one of two Spenser family tiaras . There. Is one the Queen gave her however it was not worn at the wedding .

I can assure you none of the Royal families tiaras , pile in dust ! Queen victories tiara is much loved however would not suit , as an appropriate wedding tiara , despite having sapphires in it .
