Thank you Blueice for those beautiful pics.

Here's a bigger pic of Lalla Salma at her wedding. I love the tiara and the matching earrings. So timeless and regal.

the design on her face, what does it mean? is it like tatoo cristals? i noticed all of the royal brides wore them, is there something behind it?

I assume it has traditional significance.
Maybe someone of Moroccan background could explain it to us?

As far as i know the design in the face means nothing , it's just a make up for the morrocan brides :)

Thanks Humera for the pictures.
The princesses tiaras match the earrings and necklaces as well. For salma it's not evident in the picture ... even I guess she has also a necklace. The princesses tiaras looks nice specially the one of Hasna.

Salma' tiara is a Greek Key diamond, called also Meander' tiara.
The word "meander" derives from the River Maiandros, which inspired the ancient Greek key pattern, so the lines/square spiral wanders like the Maiandros River.

There is a similar tiara in this site http://alexandris.de/antique.htm
It says: A CHAUMET DIAMOND TIARA, ca.1910 , set in platinum, Designed in the Greek key pattern , very characteristic of this period, in its original CHAUMET case.

So apart from it is beautiful tiara, I would expect Greeks (or Europeans) to wear a Greek key tiara not arab princess/queen. Here some ladies who wore Romanian Greek Key Tiara,

Thanx for the info abir:)
I knew Lalla Salma's tiara was a Greek Key Tiara, which is why I think it looks so regal.
Its too bad we dont get to see Moroccan princesses wear their tiaras more often. The only time I've seen them wearing tiaras is at their weddings. They dont wear them at state visits either.

You are welcome Humera.
Yes, it's pity to have beautiful tiara and not to wear it that often. Maybe they don't because the princesses usually wear big earrings, necklace and a long gold belt ... so if they add to that a tiara it will be too much I guess :)

yes that true!
Their jewels and traditional gowns are splendid enough. A tiara might be lost in all that finery.
