I just love tiaras and especially coloured stones...





Tiara by Fabergé, the blue base is not a silk thread but enamel.



Cartier ruby tiara





I love this blue sapphire tiara! I wish there was a pic with a tiara frame.



I can't understand why CP Victoria likes that awful piece of steel when there are tiaras like this one that used to belong to the Romanian royal family (not sure if it still belongs):

I wonder, given Queen Victoria's extreme fixation on death and mourning, whether she -- or other members of her family-- had one of those jet ``mourning tiaras.'' I know Hortense of Beauharnais had one, and I would assume that the fashion  was also observed in the various courts on the continent.

At current royal funerals, ladies are often requested to wear dark colors, and only pearl jewellery. So maybe Victoria wore pearl tiaras during her long mourning time?

Diamonds were permisible for mourning, as was jet and cut steel. Colored stones were prohibited.

Weren't amethysts allowed for semi-mourning?

Yes. In Victorian times, wearing purple was allowed for the third phase of mourning. That applied to bling as well.

I'd love to see some photos of the classic mourning tiaras. I understand that in addition to jet, some of them were actually made of iron.

Cool. Wouldn't they look dramatic on Max or Mette-Marit?

especially to compare to other SRF tiaras.

Does the tiara  belong to Vicky's private collection or to the SRF's?  Thinking

Another tiara to be worn in mourning time


According to its source the tiara is made out of gold, it has been either painted or oxidized to look like black lace.


My personal opinion: I don't find it beautiful at all and it only wastes the beauty of those diamonds.

French jet mourning tiara

Imagine how it must sparkle with the way the diamonds are suspended.
