Anne, Princess Royal Jewellery

Unfortunately we seem to have lost the previous thread so I have attempted to reconstruct it with pictures of Princess Anne's major pieces.

The Mystery Tiara

To demonstrate that the Queen's vaults contain never-before-seen major pieces of very serious jewellery, Princess Anne wore this tiara to the Chinese State Dinner at Buckingham Palace in November 2005.

Princess Anne's Mystery Tiara

This is the best picture available. Despite much research and informed guesswork from the experts in the field of British royal jewels, the tiara has not been identified.
It remains a complete mystery to this day.

NB.. It may (or may not) be this Cartier tiara which belonged to the Queen Mother. It was seen in a display but never photographed while worn:

Well, Warren, please accept my full prostrations and thanks for digging up these marvelous goodies. Is the festoon tiara and the pearl and diamond tiara the same or is my eyesight just as shot as I think it is??? They went and ruined the aquamarine tiara when they shortened it. Why is it that such a lovely gem as aquamarine has been stuck in such hideous arrangements. The
BRF has in recent times come up with some real losers where jewels, particularly tiaras are concerned. QEIIs Birma ruby dud, her aquamarine flop, and finally the sapphire ruin. And now another aquamarine fiasco. Somebody needs to have a talk with Her Majesty about all of this. This just will not do. But then the scroll thingie is just perfect.

As for the mystery tiara why doesn't somebody call up Buckingham Palace and ask them??? What can they say, Kiss My Grits??? Surely Mr Munn or whomever has contacts within the hallowed halls of BP (and that's not a petroleum company either) who could quietly rummage around and let us have some crumbs to satisfy our insatiate cravings. After all look what they < ie the royals, parade around in on a regular basis. Why all the secrecy in the first place.

In any case it is a lovely jewel indeed. More goodies for the famished, Warren??? Cheers.

That's the best tiara which she ever wore:wub:

Isn't Anne's necklace from the 2 photo a part of the Queen Alexandra's big diamond collier?

What were the jewelers at Cartier thinking with that aquamarine tiara? The pinecones just don't go with the big squarish stones.

I looked again, thinking that I didn't like the modern look of it, but I think it's the pinecones that mar the effect of it.

Thomas Parkman, do you agree?

I agree with Warren that the festoon tiara and the pearl and diamond tiara are two separate pieces... and I dare you, Thomas Parkman, to have a word with the Queen about the jewelry!! She'd probably be amused to know some of us care about this stuff.

The necklace that Anne is wearing with the festoon tiara, according to Leslie Field, was given to Anne when she turned 18 and taken "from the vaults". I'd love to see those vaults!
And, Thomas, I cannot agree with you more-and I know that you and constantly bring this up (every chance we get, any thread that will listen) that QEII has really messed up some gems with that Burmese ruby thing (looks like fireworks), the Brazilian Flop that just looks wrong, and that Sapphire thing she had made to with the suite of sapphire jewellery her father gave her shortly before his death. I can't decide which I dislike the most--it changes each time I see a picture.
However, the scroll tiara is very beautiful, delicate, and appropriate. It suits Anne, but we haven't seen it in years, have we? I wonder who will next wear it?

Enquiries were made of various sources at the time; no answers were forthcoming, although no doubt the polite refusals were made more in line with proper Southern manners rather than in the way you have expressed it. :biggrin:

Thomas Parkman 07-02-2007 02:01 PM

Well, good people, what a fireworks have we started. First I do not know what to think about the aquamarine flop except to sell it off to Imelda Marcos, the tiara murderess, and let her ruin or destroy something that truly needs to be destroyed. Take the stones apart and start over.

Just how emotional a subject this is to me can be discerned by the fact that in my earlier posting-to my immense and immeasurable horror-I misspelled or should I say I mistyped Burma. Life is just one long humiliation.

I would love to talk to Queen Elizabeth and very politely ask her about the various goodies in the royal collections. As for southern manners, well southern manners came originally from England. South Carolina for example was founded by the 8 Lords Proprioters, who were the cabal of politicians and con artists who ran England after the restoration. Thery were out for a fast quid and turned to SC to turn a profit. As a result SC is still a Plantation society and manners are an absolute must. Hence my joke about Kiss my Grits. Were I to say that to somebody at the Palace or God Forbid, the Queen, (Prince Philip I might get away with it) I would be tarred, feathered and run out of Columbia on a rail and then taken up to Lake Murray and hanged, drawn and quartererd. But I must say again the track record of the BRF in recent years in the area of jewelry has been mediocre to very bad. Cheers.

I would like to see her wear the Diamond Scroll tiara. That hasn't been trotted out in a while.

I think that the Princess Royal enhances these lovely jewels, beautifully. I also think that it's highly likely that she'll lend them to her new daughter-in-law to wear at her wedding.

Thanks to everyone for the wonderful photos.

Warren 07-30-2007 06:31 AM

As it's likely that any tiara for the Peter Phillips/Autumn Kelly wedding will be courtesy of the Princess Royal, I'll merge the two threads rather than duplicate the same tiara pics.

kimebear 07-30-2007 03:49 PM

Why not? You don't have to be royal to wear a tiara on your wedding day. Camilla was just a commoner when she married Andrew PB and she wore a tiara. The same one that her daughter wore on her wedding day many years later.

micas 07-31-2007 07:07 PM

i make my bette in the aquarian tiara... or probably the queen give to her a new one.

T Harrhy 11-10-2007 08:14 PM

does anyone have a clearer picture of the earrings P Anne wore at the recent Saudi Banquet? they are very galm for our Anne!!

Princess Ann the Mystery Tiara
 
This is the clearest picture link I have found. It looks like two Greek key patterns on top of each other. Dose any one have any information on this? It was worn to an Asian embassy party I think
