It is beautiful. Assuming that they are not shallow cut diamonds, the center hanging stone must be about 8 carets at least.

The Royal Order of Sartorial Splendor: Tiara Thursday (on a Friday): The Londonderry Tiara

This tiara is amazingly beautiful and stunning. Very exquisite style and diamonds. It looks like it came from a fairytale.

Where could I find a list of the jewelry wedding gifts to Nadedja de Torby's wedding to George Mountbatten, 2nd Marquess of Milford Haven?

Aside from the three tiaras formally belonging to former Duchess Mary of Roxburghe, does the family have anything more in their vaults that you know of?

I have never seen a tiara on Lady Jane (first wife of the current duke) wear one, nor have I seen one on his current duchess.

I’ve seen his daughter Rose wear one on her wedding day, but it looked as though it was a loan from the Westminster’s (the Myrtle leaf).

Thanks!

I imagine that the Faberge tiara is difficult to wear and delicate.


Somewhere there is a picture of the Clydomian (sp?) tiara on a lady for a Disney/princess photo shoot, but I can’t find it. I would assume that it wouldn’t take much to make it more wearable. It’s such a unique piece. I hope they continue to keep it.

The only picture I have seen of the Westminster clyndiamen tiara being worn. The thing is... she is lying down, so we don’t get a full view of what it really looks like.

I couldn’t find credits, as it is on Pinterest.Click image for larger version

Some of these Women were 'at Court' either in an official capacity ['in waiting' on the Queen or Princesses] or attended Balls at Buckingham Palace during 'the Season'.

Since Tiaras were also worn at Parties, Theatres, the Opera and at Dinners in London, and in the Country throughout the 19th Century and up to about 1950, married Women HAD to have one.

So it was considered essential by the aristocracy to have at least one, if not more..

Thanks for explanation Wyvedale. How all changed since then.
No Wedding from Royals to B. Nobility since Diana Spencer's disastrous Wedding.

I don't like this tiara. I'm impressed with the design.
