$12.7 million?!! All money?! Hollllyyyyy.,.. Wow.

However, I don't think I necessarily enjoy the design too much. Might be in the minority but I don't really like how the Emeralds got squished together, each magnificent stone not given enough room to shine, to breathe, and to be appreciated fully. Maybe the original wearer had a small head circumference? Maybe they should do away with about 2 emeralds?

I much prefer Queen Vic's gothic emerald&diamond designed by her husband.

It has more space in between, and a sense of airyness.

         

   Queen Vic's gothic emerald & diamond Tiara is a real beauty too. I love it !!!!

A close up to Sophie's tiara (I don't know wether the blue gems are aquamarines or alexandrites)



The only thing that made me dislike this setup,is the two prongs showing in the middle. Reminds me too much like transistor prongs or electrical plugs. Like so:

Yes, that's the exact problem I have with it. Those prongs are way too obvious Thumb down
Her wedding tiara also has high prong which doesn't make it look good.

I like tiara which is formed without having much space/gap between its precious gems. Can not find picture of the piece below in tiara form but I can imagine how pretty it is as a tiara.

Art Deco diamond tiara/necklace/bracelet, circa 1935

Countess of Iveagh, Gwendolen Florence Mary Guinness (born Onslow) (info of her)
Either the tiara has big size or the countess is a petite woman (or the both), the tiara looks too big for her for sure.






Cathleen Florence May (born Candy), Duchess of Newcastle was wearing unusual looking tiara, but gosh...look at those dripping diamonds on her  Sweating

L'Imperatrice tiara and parure


"Known as L'Imperatrice,  because its design is even more splendid than the archetypal parure of the same stones which was created for and worn by S.A.R Madame la Duchesse d'Angouleme, Dauphine of France and only surviving child of Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette - she  married the son and heir of  France's King Charles X,  and has gone down in history as possessing the most splendid jewels of any woman who ever walked the face of this earth- this parure consists of the finest blue sapphires, brilliant-cut blue/white diamonds, and pearls.  It is set in white gold, and is unrivalled in elegance. Despite being so jaw-droppingly stunning that it should be vulgar, L'Imperatrice somehow contrives to remain the epitome of restrained yet sumptuous good taste."


The Alexander Parure - Ruby & Diamond Parure

"This parure of Burmese rubies and brilliant-cut white diamonds consists of the tiara, necklace, chandelier earrings, bracelet, and ring set in white 18 carat gold.The parure consisting of tiara, necklace, cathedral earrings, bracelet and ring with slight variations but with stones of a similar size and quality has a base price of  395,000. "



Just noticed both necklaces above have same design pattern to their tiaras, it reminds me of the ones belong to Japanese imperial ladies.

It looks worst worn with most of Sophie's hairstyle, as we can see clearly in the picture below a hairpin holding the tiara on to Sophie's head (it supposed to be hidden behind her hair).

This is a Chaumet diamond tiara and it also has high prong, with a central element of a fleur-de-lis.







Another diamonds kokoshnik tiara with high prong







Tiara with spiral prong, it is a simple, emerald-cut diamond tiara.

russian tiaras are, imo, the prettiest.
I am not very sure if it is the prettiest among world royal jewel but they usually full of amazing size of beautiful precious gems 







This one is one of my favourite russian tiaras (Sorry I don't know how to reduce picture)



Its matching necklace




They are only replicas, the real one once was the personal property of Tsarina Alexandra of Russia. The tiara and necklace come with matching earrings and brooch.

Tiaras that are small, compact, and understated. (of course they cost a bomb and not "cheap" at all, but still). Anyway on the right person... amazing Wink


Art deco tiara c.1915
I find this quite nice, the black borders are surprisingly endearing at least to me.


The Gina Lolobrigida necklace/tiara/bracelet.




And the not so small.

Them are huge emeralds!
The Barbara Hutton healing tip: When ill, wear a tiara to bed. Smiley


Madame de Champassak's tiara.
I guess this is to be worn lower to the brow?

Also, I wonder if this is an early sketch of what is now the Cameo Tiara?

Just as fashion designers sketch out their version of Kate's wedding dress, jewelry designers sketch out Tiaras for Kate to wear Smiley


Royal Asscher


Van Cleef


Chopard
(reminds me of Great Gatsby era Smiley )


Alexis Bittar
(maybe for Sofia Hellqvist)


Judity Ripka


Isharya
(reminds me of something to be foisted off to Charlene)


John Hardy


Tacori


Fenton/Fallon
(i know it's supposed to be laurel wreaths on the bottom row. But again, reminds me something up Sofia's alley)


Cathy Waterman


Swarovski
(Ice Queen Tilda Swinton?)


Anita Ko.

Thanks for all the new pictures.  Star Star Star
I love wallowing in them    - such precious stones and creative and precise artisan work.
The Russian set with oblong blue topaz (or aquamarine) is divine!

sorry if i remove the img tags! just don't want to quote the pics and slow the pageload. but yes, i think the "prettiest" is dependent on taste and the russian jewels are in my opinion, ones that fit mine, haha. the amount of diamonds they contain are just amazing (which makes sense, there are MANY diamond mines in the country and their locations were pretty hidden until a bit after the revolution) it's just rather disappointing that we rarely get to see the whole lot of them. i'm glad some of them managed to escape Russia and have gotten around various royal families though Smiley i don't mind a whole lot on who's head i see them on, as long as they see the light of day.

as for the high prong tiaras...i guess it depends on the design of the prongs itself and how they're worn. I absolutely adore the tiara with the spiral prong, doesn't look tacky at all Smiley and hey, if it can be hidden in...let's say the Duchess of Cornwall's poofy/thick tiara hair then it wouldn't be much of an issue haha
