Some of the brooches in the royal collection could make wonderful pendants with collet necklaces.

Absolutely, sounds beautiful!

I took a look at the wonderful Queens Jewels blog. Here are my contenders of brooches.

These would look lovely in hair (Especially Catherines dark hair!):
http://queensjewelvault.blogspot.com...se-brooch.html
http://queensjewelvault.blogspot.se/...-brooches.html


And these would be my top picks for pendants:
http://queensjewelvault.blogspot.se/...-brooches.html (actually, this one has 2 small and one big. I wonder if it would look good as earrings and necklace?)
http://queensjewelvault.blogspot.se/...mi-parure.html
http://queensjewelvault.blogspot.se/...ld-brooch.html
http://queensjewelvault.blogspot.se/...nd-scroll.html
http://queensjewelvault.blogspot.se/...-sapphire.html
Something like this http://queensjewelvault.blogspot.se/...-necklace.html could be worn like CP Victoria does here: http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-AG8Ovi_6Ur...ndeauTiara.jpg

There is so many changes that can be done without destroying the integrity of the piece :)

Quite right.

Camilla has twice worn a "minor collet" with a serious sapphire and diamond pendant. That is very much the model I had in mind.

I made a "new" tiara from a necklace, a thing I've seen suggested around the internet :P My suggestion is that they would make it a flexible base so it can change back to a necklace.

It's this necklace I've used: https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com...6ce464275d.jpg

And this is my result: https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com...01b01014f9.jpg

I placed it on Catherines head since I needed a head to put it on and it matches her ring :) What do you guys think? I think it could look good. Maybe add a diamond base to it...

I think so as well :) I think it could lend itself nicely to a convertable tiara :)

Yes.. this works well, although a diamond base [like that on the GBBI] would 'elevate it'.

I agree. I thought about it, but it was too hard for me to add it :P

I must that would make a very good tiara design and would suit Catherine really well. It reminds me also of another Swedish sapphire tiara too.

I agree that it would look so good on Catherine!! I hope someone in the circles get this same idea :P Would be a great way to get a "new" tiara without buying new tiaras!

I've often wondered how flexible this necklace is. Queen Alexandra's amethyst necklace/tiara looked quite different in its different incarnations. Jewels of Queen Alexandra | Amethysts Necklace Tiara | Princess Maud Countess of Southesk so if this sapphire necklace is flexible I would think that in a tiara configuration the elements would be compressed together more i.e. the diamond loops and spacers nearly touching so that it would look closer to the Vladimir but with the sapphires being fixed rather than dangling. Just my guess.

Yeah, I know. It was hard to get them further together :P But that's my guess as well.. BUt might be that it's not as flexible since (as far as we know) it's not made for being convertable into a tiara :)

Well done you! I have long wanted to see something similar done. I think Catherine will be the one with the opportunity to do something like this.

That photoshop is great, the 'tiara' looks quite lovely on Kate. I agree that a convertible necklace-tiara usually has the elements closer together in it's tiara form. But to achieve this in photoshop must be incredibly difficult, so we'll have to use our imagination. Imo the tiara would look even better with lesser space between the elements.

PS. Good that you labelled the pic as photoshopped! That will prevent confusion.

exactly!! :)

Yeah, I've gotten a rutine of labelling those kinds of pictures since some people don't realize they're photoshopped (like the Camilla in Lovers Knot pictures). Better safe than sorry :P

Yes, Camilla and the lover's knot tiara might haunt us forewer. Or that old b/w montage of Diana with the greek key Spencer tiara.

Just wondered how people thought about putting the Godman emerald and diamond necklace on a tiara frame? It will probably need an all diamond base, perhaps not dissimilar to that on the GGB&I, to give it some height.
