I think over the years, the press or a jewel expert will dub a tiara by an unofficial name (think Princess/Lady Di or Fergie) but the royal collection will probably give its official name based on its "purchase" name. So in 1936, Cartier probably called it the Halo tiara (and as posters have noted, they probably made many "halo" tiaras). But back before we had a website to announce to us what the proper name is, the Queen Mum, Princess Margaret, and Princess Anne wore it publicly and some journalist or fashion editor started calling it the scroll tiara and the name caught on. Princess Margaret's Poltimore tiara was called that because it had previously belonged to the Duchess of Poltimore and same thing with the Queen's Grand Duchess Vladimir tiara. But to their previous owners, the tiaras were surely known by a different name

It's a similar store with the fringe tiara many of us were hoping for. The royal collection just calls it the "Fringe Tiara," but people have dubbed it the Russian or Hanover/George III fringe tiara. The latter name because we mistakenly believed that it was the same tiara worn by Queen Victoria in a Winterhalter painting and thought to be made from diamonds belong to George III. However, the royal collection states very clear it's been mistaken to be, but not made from George III's diamonds and made in 1919. But we still continue to call it the George III fringe.

The tiara worn by HRH is listed in The Queen's Jewels by Leslie Field as the 'Queen Elizabeth the Queen mother Scroll Tiara'. It states the Queen has never worn it in public. I must say I didn't see this one coming! But she looks very beautiful in it.

One article said it's name is not The Halo but more it is a halo tiara- does that make sense? I shall search for the link, I've read so many things today

Ok here it is. I am waiting for better close ups from the balcony wave session. It is definitely the Scroll we now know that the BRF refers to it as the Halo. Halo merely refers to how this design sits on the head so there are several halo tiaras in the world but this is the same one we knew as the scroll.

I have to confess, the scroll was not my most obvious choice assumption - as I expected something bigger ....but with the dress and veil - I think it worked nicely.

The tiara itself is a beautiful Art Deco design - very appropriate for the time and one of my favourites.

Tiara suits Catherine's style

The Scroll ("Halo") tiara was a brilliant choice. It is beautiful. It suits Catherine's tasteful simplicity of style. It belonged to the young Queen Mother, yet has not been strongly associated with anyone in particular. And, it has not been seen in a while. It is youthful and beautiful, feminine and romantic, while having a touch of modernity. It was the perfect choice for the new Duchess of Cambridge. Love it! Love it! Love it!

So Queen EII dug in her vaults and found this piece... bless her
I think it's good choice, with history, not to big, not to small and suits Catherine very well. I like earrings designed to match the tiara.

A perfect choice! I am so proud of myself 'cause I recognized it immediately when she was in the car!

I have to say that The Hallo/Scroll has suited the young Duchess much more than it has suited QEQM, Princess Margareth and Princess Anne.
I had never thought much of it, but having the opportunity to see it closer (much better today' s pictures than the ones available before) I am obliged to say that it is pretty. Anyway, I still hope to see Catherine using the Stratmore, Rundell, Surray, Nizan (I hope it still exists), Rose Crescent and any other not seen in a long time. The sooner the better. LOL

You sure its not the royal cupcake she'd been hiding for a sugar rush to keep her awake?

Now as the both the bride and groom are happily "napping", I think I will too.

I can only agree! Surprising but perfect!

I think it's a beautiful tiara and goes perfectly with Catherine's dress, the whole effect was simple and lovely. When I first saw it I immediately thought of Mette-Marit's wedding/daisy tiara which is also one of my favourites for its delicate simplicity.

I was intially thought it was the Cambridge Lover's Knot but wasn't sure. My coworkers kept shooting each other strange looks whenever I flexed my royal knowledge, including or starting with the identification of the tiara. I guess that's not normal? Oh well, one person's scrapbooking is another person's royal watching. A hobby is a hobby.

I thought the Scroll / Halo tiara was a lovely choice, and I have to admit I was one of the few who had voted for the Scroll in TRF poll. Wonderfully understated, it should be fine for Catherine's current status in the family, until elevated to the next level up.
