Princess Tsuguko wore a golden lizard (dinosaur?) pendant on a simple chain in September 2019. She went out for dinner with a friend at an Okinawan restaurant in Ginza.

I was asked about Princess Masako of Nashimoto (Yi Bangja, Crown Princess Uimin of Korea) and Princess Sayako's tiaras on twitter. After some google searches, I found some photos of Mikimoto's replica.

- Masako Nashimoto should have received her tiara when she married in 1920 or when she came of age in 1921. Her tiara has a curving (detachable?) piece at the bottom.

- Sayako's tiara is denser and seems heavily inspired by Masako Nashimoto's tiara.

- Mikomoto has a replica created in 1923-1924 and this has been exhibited several times.

November 2005 in Sofia, Bulgaria --> Getty states "belonging to Japanese Imperial Palace" but I think that's a mistake.
2007 in Tokyo
2016 in Osaka

Thank you for the nice photographs, Prisma :)
I remember vaguely the Mikimoto exhibition in Sofia and reading about the Miss World crown in the papers at the time.
Unfortunately the link doesn't work for me, but there are some other photos from 2005 online.

My quest led me an interesting photo of the late Empress Nagako wearing what looks like the sapphire and diamond brooch that is currently with the Princess Hitachi - Link to GettyImages
