I assume that the lady with the turquoise tiara is the bride, Princess Marie Antoinette? Since she's wearing a blue gown, this must be a pre-wedding ball. Did she wear a tiara for her wedding ceremony?
Yes, it is Priness Marie Antoinette :) She didn't wear a tiara at her wedding ceremony. She wore flowers around her head.

I also have the same theory, that it was Thurn und Taxis heirloom(you also found out that the pearl belonged to Margarethe, Helene's grandmother), and that these jewels passed from Margarethe to Helene and through her to Gabriele and now belongs to Sayn-Witthenstein-Sayn family.

There were a lot of theories about the origin of this tiara, but I think that all of us, based on found pictures, somehow solved it

Some of the few tiaras that I admire which were made after the 19th century and the 1920's!

The Hesse Pink topaz tiara and the versatile (diamonds, emerald, and pearls) tiara.


Queen Elizabeth, take notes from your nieces you always go german and french when it come to classic and formal tiaras and jewelry (Koch, Cartier, Boucheron, Mellerio dits Meller, Bolin, etc..) also the Danish cousins should hear this.

And this is for The Duchess of Cambridge, Queen Mathilda, Letizia, and the crown princess Mary, Victoria, and Metta merit you always go to French and Italian Jewelers( Bulgarie, JAR, and Buccellati) for contemporary and modern jewelry.

Since I can't put in British Crown jewels thread as this tiara does not belong to Crown jewels, I will put it here:

Princess Margaret of Prussia, Duchess of Connaught wearing unknown tiara:

I had the chance to see the tiara and brooch one week ago at the Dorotheum. Beautiful pieces . Since I love pearls - if I would have the pocket money - I would buy it for myself. :-)

That's a really beautiful and ornate diamond and pearl tiara/brooch ,would be wonderful if it was bought by a reigning house and was worn again.

Aaand its gone....

This morning the treasure collection called "Grünes Gewölbe" in Dresden/Germany was stolen.

"Thieves broke into Dresden's Grünes Gewölbe early Monday morning and stole priceless treasures, police said. The eastern German museum, known in English as the Green Vault, houses Europe's largest collection of treasures.
Two thieves were seen on camera entering through a window and later escaping in a vehicle.
Police said the thieves targeted the historic section of the museum, which is divided into two sections — the historic treasure chamber of Augustus II the Strong dating to 1733, and the new section, which displays individual treasures."

Jewellery worth almost a BILLION Euro was stolen.

No there is also a star tiara which is worn by Duchess Caroline.

Yes, you are right. I forgot I posted Caroline's picture from Prussia/Isenburg wedding gala here, also with huge, a bit strange necklace.

To me, this wedding tiara that Beatrix and Eilika have been wearing looks more like it has previously been some kind of golden choker converted to a tiara with a few pearls added to the top.

The Wurttemberg pink topaz parure beautifully displayed last night by soprano Charlotte de Rothschild in Tokyo. What a treat to see this glittering parure!

The Sayn-Wittgenstein-Berleburg Diamond Spike Tiara | The Court Jeweller

I dislike this tiara. I don’t like the design and I find it kind of cheap looking.

Its one of those tiaras that might be better suited as a wedding tiara with a veil,the diamonds are stunning but after that I'm not a fan either.

It's worth remembering that during the 1800s many tiaras were worn with either veils or a frame of feathers or fabric. The Swedish Royal ladies did so at the Ceremonial Opening of Parliament until the ceremony was abolished in 1974.
