That's a good question. According to http://www.geocities.com/rte-stgo/thaitiara.html

Tiaras were common in Europe but were only introduced to Siamese Royals during King Rama V's reign, probably after his travels in Europe. Though King Rama V's queens and consorts were in pocessions of some beautiful tiaras, they were only worn as necklaces.

It's very rare to see Thai princesses wearing Tiarars even Queen Sirikit herselfe doesn't really wear her tiaras in most royal events in Thailand. That link provides photos of Thai Style-Tiara. I think the style is very unique.

I can absolutely recommend downloading all this zip-files at (yes, there are many, but it’s worth it). These pictures are a treasure; you can discover so many details.
To remind this wonderful atmosphere, here are some more pics… (palaces.thai.net of course)

You're right. But they doesn't wear them in Europe events - if they come.For us (if I can wrote it?) the great events like this one must (should) be with the tiaras (wear by all royal ladies).

Btw, I've just thought that maybe they -TRF has the limit number of the tiaras only for a limit number of the ladies? Or maybe they has I don't know -some regulations which say who and on what ocassions can wear the tiara?

Well, i don't think they lack of tiaras, or any kind of jewelries. Take a look at this site (just click on blue-flower button for the detail).. Let's just say them don't emphasize their appearance on purely a tiara. Even if they don't wear a tiara, their delicate dresses, with detailed accessories certainly makes up for the glamour & beauty. :)

Finally, found this great, touching, and tearing speech made by the Sultan of Brunei during the Gala Banquet on 13 June 2006. The words have such deep meaning, and elegantly chosen.

Quote:
Your Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej,
Your Majesty Queen Sirikit,
Your Majesties,
Your Royal Highnesses,
Ladies and Gentlemen,

Your Majesty,
We have the honour and great pleasure to join Your Majesties today for two reasons.

Firstly we are here, like the people everywhere in this proud and ancient Kingdom, to offer a very simple personal message to Your Majesty and your beloved Queen Sirikit.
We offer our warmest congratulations and our heartfelt best wishes to you both and to the people of Thailand . We do this with the deepest of respect.
This occasion, however, demands much more than our simple goodwill no matter how warmly and sincerely it is expressed.

So, there is another equally important reason for our presence in your beautiful country. If there is a single word to express it, Your Majesty, I believe it would be the word, "honour".

We are here, Your Majesty, to honour you and your people and to honour your life as their leader, their inspiration and their revered Head of State.
Your Majesty's reign is one of the longest in history. That, however, is a matter of academic record and we are not here to celebrate mere records.
We are here to honour the substance of that reign. We are here to express our profound esteem for the personal qualities with which Your Majesty has so enriched it.

Its 60 years are not just 60 years in the history of Thailand . They are, in so many ways, the history of our times, the good and the bad, the joyous and the sad, the exciting and the desperate.

These times have brought the most rapid and far-reaching changes ever seen in man's history. They have challenged every aspect of our existence, above all as sovereign nations. They have presented moments when great decisions and judgement have been called for.

To these moments, Your Majesty has brought the dignity, wisdom, courage that we all seek to offer those we are called upon to lead.
You have never sought to distance yourself from the lives of your people. You have never asked them to be followers or mere subjects. You have shared their joys, fears and disappointments.
You have made them deeply proud of their heritage and their identity. You have made your people feel that the Kingdom of Thailand is indeed their own Kingdom. Above all, I feel, you have given them confidence.

Much of this comes from Your Majesty's own personal achievements. These have rightly been a source of great inspiration to your people whether academic, artistic, and scientific, or in the most human of terms the simple example of a good and loving father.

All these achievements have now been recognised by the international community. And we offer you our warmest congratulations on the Lifetime Achievement Award that has been conferred by the United Nations.

Your Majesty, in recognising all these accomplishments some accounts of your reign have accorded you the title 'The Great". We can all understand why.

But, for us who have come to honour you here, a simpler title expresses our feeling. It is a dear and very special title.

You are Our Friend and Our Most Respected colleague.

You inspire us all and we, Your Majesty's peers and admirers, honour you most deeply for this.

We are also extremely grateful to Your Majesty's Government and to Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra for the opportunity we have had to express these feelings of great respect in person.

In arranging this unique gathering, they honour us as well. It has been a privilege to share their celebrations on this wonderful occasion and we wish Your Majesties and the people of the Kingdom of Thailand many more years of great happiness and prosperity.

Thank you.
