I LOVE the papyrus tiara - this is the one I would vote for if I could choose :wub:
AND I am wondering, when we will see the Strathmore tiara again - anybody has some information who it currently owns? Maybe we would see it again during on of the weddings of the next generation. Maybe not William - but Harry, Eugenie, Beatrice, Louise.....

I think the Strathmore tiara is pretty, I understand that it is not in very good shape and needs work to be done on it. I believe Warren posted info to this effect on another thread.

The Royal Order of Sartorial Splendor: Tiara Thursday: Princess Marie Bonaparte's Olive Wreath Tiara

I find this tiara absolutely beautiful. That pear shaped diamond is especially breathtaking. The overall design is very grand and elegant.

Minus the diamond pendant I do quite like this Olive Wreath Tiara,pity it was sold off in the 1960's.

The Royal Order of Sartorial Splendor: Tiara Thursday: The Snowdon Floral Tiara

This tiara is absolutely beautiful. It's elegant, whimsical, and timeless. I especially love the brooches.

It really is quite beautiful and Lady Sarah wore it so well on her wedding day,do we know if the Snowdon Floral Tiara is still in the family?

The tiara was recently included in an exhibition on royal wedding dresses at Buckingham Palace. So it must be still in the family:flowers:.

As mentioned on the blogpost (Order of Splendour), the Snowdon Floral "Tiara" is not really a tiara, but a collection of brooches assembled on a frame. The brooches were not part of the jewels sold by the Snowdon's in 2006, so one would assume they are in the family.

Was the Strathmore Rose Tiara worn by George VI's wife only when she was the Duchess of York?
Or did she also wear it when she was the Queen Consort Elizabeth?
What is the last newspaper photograph of Elizabeth wearing the Strathmore Rose Tiara? :tudorrose::tudorrose::tudorrose:

Does anyone have info on this lovely floral tiara? It was worn by princess Diana's niece Lady Emily McCorquodale at her wedding. I'm not sure if this belongs to the Spencer side or the McCorquodale side...I'm pretty sure Neil McCorquodale (Lady Sarah's husband) doesn't have any royal roots. But then again this has never been seen on a Spencer before. I'm stumped! Any info would be appreciated :)Attachment 293080

You don't have to be of royal decent to wear a tiara. Not that long ago most aristocratic ladies had at least one at her disposal.

And not just aristocratic ladies, but every lady who was just rich enough to afford that kind of jewels and moved in the upper social circles would have had a tiara. Some of these upper class families have kept their family tiaras and still use them. And the McCorquodales were moving in the upper class social circles and were well connected.

As you say the tiara Emily Mccorquodale wears was never seen on a Spencer lady. Furthermore, Alexandra Finlay, who married lady Cynthia Spencer's son Alexander Fellowes, did not wear a tiara at her wedding. That's why I believe that the tiara originates from the McCorquodale family.

Agree. McCorquodales were rich manufacturers. They owned printing factory. One of Emily's cousins (first cousin four times removed) was raised to the peerage as baron McCorquodale.
