IIRC the decision to not budget for her parure was in response to COVID-19.  I seem to remember that even the coming of age celebrations have been scaled down to the bare minimum.  Part of me thinks it's a sensible decision while another part of me thinks that as she's the reigning emperor's only child they should do it up right.

Well she only has it while unmarried.... makes sense to recycle... maybe that will be the process in the future

All born princesses have their tiaras/parures while unmarried, they will have to surrender their parures to the IHA once they get married. The only ones keeping it for a lifetime are the women marrying a prince. Next in line would be the future wife of Hisahito.

If they recycle, why did the Akishino girls and other minor princesses get personal parures made for them? If they want to save money, take some older pieces out of the vault and create/change up a new one for Aiko. They don't have to get a brand new one. Just personalize a old/new one for her.

Some tiaras/parures are either wedding gifts and guarantee a lifelong "possession", and some of them were made specifically for the princesses on their 20th birthday - but when a princess marries a non-royal or passes away, all the bling goes into the possession of the Imperial Household Agency (IHA).

So there are some actual ones



Princess Takamado
Her wedding tiara, a second diamond bandeau tiara, and the Mikasa Pearl Drop Tiara from her mother-in-law, who doesnít attend tiara events anymore.



Princess Noriko of Takamado
Pearl & Diamond Wave Tiara
(made by Mikimoto in 2008)



Princess Ayako of Takamado
Diamond Wreath Tiara
(made by Mikimoto)



Hanako, Princess Hitachi
Japanese Pearl Fringe tiara


 
Princess Tomohito of Mikasa
Pearl & Diamond Tiara



Princess Yōko of Mikasa  
Pearl & Diamond Tiara




Princess Yuriko of Mikassa
Diamond Kokoshnik Tiara



One is to be know been taken apart and remade


Empress Shōken Scroll Tiara
(which the Meiji Scroll Tiara was made of)





And others nobody knows what really happened to them


Princess Takamatsuís Floral Palmette Tiara
- we haven't seen that one yet



Crown Princess Bangja Tiara
- no one knows where that is



Princess Chichibu Pearl Drop Tiara
(made by Mikimoto circa 1936)
- no one knows where that is


 

 
Princess Itsuko of Nashimoto (1882 - 1976)
* Married Prince Nashimoto Morimasa
* Mother of Yi Bangja, Crown Princess of Korea (born Masako)
* Aunt of Princess Chichibu (Setsuko)
- 2 tiaras nobody has seen



Empress Kojun Scroll Tiara
(made by Mikimoto)
- not seen in ages

Those older tiaras are stunning; I love the chrysanthemum and the honeysuckle ones especially.  I do not like how the recent tiaras have come with a necklace that mirrors the shape of the tiara; it's too matchy-matchy and takes away from the impact of both the tiara AND the necklace.

A lovely couple!   Many belated happy returns to Masako.   

That beige outfit however, should be burned.
