Historical Royal Jewels (February 2012 Informal Poll)

Welcome to the
February 2012 Informal Picture Poll
Featuring


Historical Royal Jewels!

The pictures in this poll show the informal side of royalty. This month's poll features royal jewels with a special history or significance.

The poll will close on 27 February 2012. During this time, we ask that NO ONE STATE WHOM THEY'VE VOTED FOR so as not to influence other members as they make their choices. After the poll closes, you can discuss as much as you'd like about which image you voted for and why.

This month, our Picture of the Month representatives had help in selecting their images with a small committee of their choosing. Below, you can see each royal house's representative (in bold) followed by their chosen committee members.

This diamond tiara and matching earrings by Cartier once belonged to Queen Alia, third wife of King Hussein of Jordan. After her tragic death, they passed onto her daughter Princess Haya who lent the jewels to her sister-in-law Rania during her first few years as Queen. Rania wore them at her husband's investiture, for official portraits and state visits.
The tiara and earrings have most recently been seen on Princess Haya, now married to Sheikh Muhammad of Dubai, who has worn them for official portraits.

Empress Josephine Emerald Tiara - The tiara was originally created for (and named after) Empress Josephine, wife of Napoleon Bonaparte, and came to Sweden with her granddaughter, Queen Josephine of Sweden and Norway. When Crown Princess Märtha gave birth to the future King Harald, her parents, Prince Carl of Sweden and Princess Ingeborg of Denmark, gave her the emerald set. By the time Märtha got it, the two teardrop-shaped emeralds had been removed and made into earrings. The tiara is currently worn by Queen Sonja.

The Girls of Great Britain and Ireland Tiara was a gift to Queen Mary from donations given for her wedding in 1893 by women and girls from around the British Isles. She passed this fabulous tiara to her granddaughter, Queen Elizabeth II, on the occasion of her wedding in 1947. It is affectionately known as "Granny's Tiara" and today the tiara is one of the most closely associated with HM The Queen.

The Cameo tiara - Crown Princess Victoria on her wedding day, June 19, 2010, wearing the Cameo tiara, one of the oldest jewels in the Swedish royal family's collection. The tiara was made for Empress Josephine, first wife of Napoleon I., in 1811. Princess Brigitta wore it as her bridal crown in 1961, Princess Désirée in 1964 and Queen Silvia did so as well on her wedding day in 1976.

G. Greece

Queen Frederika's Diamond Tiara- Originally given to Sophia of Prussia upon her marriage to Crown Prince Constantine of Greece (later King Constantine I), it is most associated with Queen Frederika of Greece, who received it as a wedding present from her husband Prince Paul (Sophia's son). The tiara's last public appearance was at the wedding of her son, King Constantine II to Princess Anne-Marie of Denmark. After Queen Frederika went into exile, she never wore the tiara again, and many people assumed the tiara had been sold. Therefore it was quite a surprise when Marie-Chantal, Crown Princess Pavlos, wore Queen Frederika's Diamond tiara to Queen Margrethe II's Ruby Jubilee Gala. It is unknown if the tiara currently belongs to Marie-Chantal, the royal family, or was on loan.

Agreed.
Just one question: what are the criteria based on which one has to vote? Is it just personal preference (which piece of jewellery I like most), or historical significance, or other? If possible, I'd also appreciate some guidance concerning the "February 2012 Official Picture of the Month Poll" as well.

Sorry, this may be a stupid question but I'm new to the polls, this one being my first ever.

You just vote for your favourite in both polls :)

This has to be the hardest set of pictures to choose from, ever!

Thank you.
If the vote has to be based on personal preference only, I wish more options were available; I'd probably end up voting for every single candidate!
As per rules specified in LadyK's post, I cannot state my vote; however, the piece of jewellery I voted for is unique and with great historical significance.

A very difficult but entertaining and interesting poll. I wish there were choices other than tiaras though; while they are undoubtedly the most eye-catching and memorable ones, I'm quite certain there are other jewels of great significance.

Like the Feb 2012 poll, this one has also closed as the month has passed.
