Me too. It's so delicately beautiful. It would look superb as a starter tiara and with an updo.

It resembles the Strathmore, which I think is beautiful, and would love to see it stabilized, restored and worn again. Alas...

So after our starter tiara discussion yesterday...I've been experimenting with many Google searches and found a few.

Sapphire tiara (it's a bit big but since the Swedes use the button tiaras as one of the earlier/starter tiaras I thought I'd include it)


Turquoise tiara (not my favorite stone but have to say this is one of the better turquoise tiaras I've seen)


Aquamarine and pearl bandeau


Three necklaces that convert to nice small tiaras.

These ones could also be lovely starter tiaras for young princesses :

Ohhhhh, beautiful.  Other than the floral tiaras, the Art Deco ones are my favourites.  I would kill to see Letizia (or myself, for that matter) in this one by Cartier, possibly my favourite tiara of all time:

Love this one. It's delicate and blingy all at the same time.

I just looked up Queen Ena of Spain's tiaras and found quite a few that I haven't seen before. So the story about her leaving most of her jewelries to her daughters rather than her son ("Jewels to Pass") has some truth to it.

Turquoise tiara:


Aquamarines tiara and the entire set of aquamarines:


The aquamarines tiara was re-worked after it's passed onto her daughter, who married an aristocrat:


Cartier diamond tiara with emeralds rather than pearls and the entire set of emeralds:



Diamond Garland tiara:


Emerald bandeau:



Diamond spike tiara (reportedly sold during exile):



So she left only one tiara, Fleur de Lys, to the main line along with diamonds and pearls. All the color gems were left to daughters (or sold off?). I like the aquamarines and the emeralds set but I don't like the settings. All of them can use a makeover. I wonder whether there's a chance Felipe can buy these two sets back. Aquamarine matches Leonor's eye color and will look great on her. Same for the emeralds on Letizia.

The emeralds were auctioned decades ago, bought by a jeweler and used to make new jewelry for Farah Pahlavi of Iran.





The aquamarines are owned by the Torlonia sisters, cousins of King Juan Carlos. Olimpia Torlonia is a well-known jewelery collector (she is said to have bought many jewels sold by other members of the family), and mother of Princess Sibilla of Luxembourg. They have no intention of selling the jewelry.
