Wow, what a tiara on HM! Anyone have any idea which one it is? Looks like aquamarines -- that center stone is a stunner!

...and now I'll answer my own question. :) It's an aquamarine and diamond tiara made by Garrards in 1957. The center stone was originally a part of a necklace given to The Queen by the President and people of Brazil (so it seems it's sometimes called the "Brazilian Aquamarine Tiara"). Here's a link from the Royal Collection.

You are correct Ella Kay! I do find this design rather unfortunate, the big center stone of the tiara just ruins the entire look. The base of the tiara is actually nice, the half circles aren't al that bad but it seems they just had one big aquamarine left, didn't know what to do with it and though, let's place it in the center.

If they would alter the piece so that the top only has the half circles and use the big aquamarine as a brooch I think it would look much better.

Any ideas about the programme btw, or doesn;t the British Royal website release that?

According to the Court Circular, The Prince of Wales, The Duke of York, The Duke and Duchess of Gloucester, with Prince and Princess Michael of Kent were the only Royals present.

I believe the duchess of Cornwall was ill?

She has been ill with Bronchitis.:flowers:

Marengo 03-31-2009 05:00 AM

Well, all the best to her!

It seems the duchess of Gloucester was 'replacing' the duchess fo Cornwall as she was seated next to the president. The duchess was wearing her Indian tiara that was inherited from princess Marie-Louise by the princess Alice, Dss of Gloucester.

Well, I can't say I'm all too happy about the Duchess of Cornwall missing the banquet because I so enjoy her tiara events. When is the next one?
However, it is always nice to see the Duchess of Gloucester and her very nice collection of jewels. She is a lovely lady indeed~!
