Here's a pic with the very same tiara from another angle:



And a bigger version of your pic



It's a modern tiara and it suits her hair color perfectly.


Maybe it's just me and my commoner ways, but I find it obscene and tasteless that this young girl is wearing such ostentatious and expensive jewelry.

Earlier this year, Queen Victoria's Sapphire Coronet was slated to be sold by an unknown private owner to an anonymous foreign buyer. When the sale came to light and made the news, the British government decided to try to attempt to prevent the sale of this historic piece of royal jewelry from leaving the country. Matt Hancock, the minister of culture, imposed a temporary ban on the sale by deferring the approval of an export license for the piece.

This month, on 27 December, the ban on the foreign sale of Queen Victoria's Sapphire Coronet (designed by Prince Albert) is slated to end.  I did read that several news outlets are reporting that the ban may be extended until June 2017 if it appears that financial arrangements are forthcoming.

I personally hope that this piece will stay in Britain - even if it is never worn by anyone in the royal family and is just displayed in the Victoria and Albert Museum. 

Secret  If I had an extra £5 million lying around...I am sure it would look lovely with my blue eyes.   Wink

Such a beautiful thing, I hope it stays in the country, too. Albert had an impeccable architectural design sense IMO and it really shows here. I like your idea of the museum buying it, it could be the centerpiece of their collections and a brand image that would be hard to beat. Thanks for the info, hope you'll keep us posted! Star

^ Those stones are just out of this world and only a miniscule part of the Romanov collection of course. If it had all been preserved and kept together in a museum what a sight it would be.

That tiara looks like it could almost be worn in three or four different ways if the layers were removable.

Not since the early days of her royal life..... I think this is one that would need a little modernising for wear today..... although I can see one of the York girls using it as a wedding tiara (which would be fitting since the Queen Mum was also Duchess of York)

I don't want to go too much off topic in the Victoria news thread so I thought I might write here. There was talk about "starter tiaras" and how most of them are just plain bad. I sort of like the idea of a smaller tiara to start with and love the thought of seeing some new bling when the princesses who are now kids will be old enough.

Something like these...

I like the option of converting a necklace owned into a tiara or buying one at auction and converting into a tiara.  There are many great necklaces that would make a good starter tiara.

But now you've got me wanting to dig around the internet to find starter tiaras.  I'll shall return later with some of my picks!
