I've just finished updating and expanding my tiara posts for Brunei so I thought I'd share them here.
With the exception of Azrinaz’s bandeau tiara which was made by Cartier, I haven’t been able to find out which jeweler made the Brunei tiaras so the posts are more just cataloging who has worn them. There are even more tiaras that I didn’t have enough to make a post about but I’ll still be including here in my list. I wonder if some of their jewels were made by Asprey given that it used to be owned by the Sultan’s brother.
I haven't quite figured out the rules of tiara wearing in Brunei. As far as I can tell when Queen Saleha wears a tiara, Crown Princess Sarah does not wear one. We know that there are clearly enough tiaras for her to wear one so it must be something to do with only the queen wearing a tiara as opposed to anyone can wear a tiara if the dress code calls for them like we see elsewhere. When the Sultan had other wives they would also wear a tiara to events like Queen Saleha but not Crown Princess Sarah or any of the other princesses.
Queen Saleha is very generous with loaning out her tiaras to the brides of the family. Not just with her daughters but to her and her husband’s nieces and the brides of their nephews. I’ve included many of them in the posts but I have a feeling that there are a lot more that happened before the prevalence of social media so I can’t find pictures of them. There’s probably also some that have happened since then that I just haven’t found yet given the size of the Brunei royal family and how often Queen Saleha loans the tiaras out.
The bridal loaners that are worn by woman past Queen Saleha's children are the Diamond Crescent Tiara, the Crescent Star Tiara, the Diamond Flame Tiara, and CP Sarah's Diamond Lily tiara. I have some questions about the Diamond Crescent Tiara. It appears to be rather new and has quickly become a favorite for the family's brides but I haven’t found any pictures of it being worn by Queen Saleha or her children. The brides that wear it also where other tiaras and necklaces that I know belong to Queen Saleha so this one is most likely owned by her too. Perhaps she thought she needed a new loaner tiara given how many grandchildren of Omar Ali there are for her to loan tiaras to. She only seems to loan tiaras out past her own children that she has stopped wearing.
