Here are the add and the tiara in 3 pieces. https://www.bonhams.com/auctions/24577/lot/131/

I hope Mary buys it - price is 80.000-120.000 pounds sterling... - but I think she thinks she deserves it. And Marie just had a new tiara. I looove tiaras and the Danish ones are so freakin few and meeeh.

why would Mary need a new tiara??  Blink

she has 4 for her choosing, and once she becomes Queen Consort she has access to the Crown Jewels.

It's Marie that should get another one, one of her own. This one would be perfect for Marie. Thumb up

One can never have to many tiaras  Drool

Well instead of buying expensive once-to-wear clothing galore, save up and get a better collection of crown jewels. I saw the Danish ones at Rosenborg... small selection.... Dresses dont really interest me as much as the jewels, I’ve seen it again and again - so nice surprice with Maries new tiara   

And if no one else agrees with me on more bling bling in DRF I know of one certain black amex type backing me up saying yes yes yes, my precious  Banana  Whistle

I agree, and it's an idea you as a Dane could suggest to Crown Princess Mary!

That tiara looks much better when its worn just the top part as tiara and the bottom part as a necklace. It's too much stacked up like that.

I agree, much better as separate pieces, but as such were probably not majestic enough for a lady-in-waiting to Queen Victoria-Eugenie (or possibly for Madame - can you imagine her parading around in the full kit? ).

As an aside, I love reading Geoffrey Munn's informative and enthusiastic description, he's such lovely man and a font of information.

This tiara is very much of its time period though, isn't it? It's something I can imagine the flamboyant Marie of Romania wearing.

Köchert made diamond tiara, ca. 1900, belonging to the Family of Bourbon Parma, to be auctioned off this October at Sotheby's Geneva (alongside some other magnificent Bourbon Parma jewels, some dating back to Marie Antoinette):






The estimate for this pearl and diamond pendant which once graced Marie Antoinette, is 1 - 2 Mio USD.
The tiara, once owned by Maria Anna of Austria, is expected to fetch only 1/10th of that (I'd take the tiara over the pendant any time, who cares about the pre-owner being better known or what?)

Some things are really strangely priced. I'd also take the tiara over the pendant and the prices should be more realistic and not blown up because of previous owners.

The tiara is really beautiful!

Is the same tiara?  Confused
Quote
So the woman is Grace Carr Wynn, Lady Newborough, wife of William Charles Wynn, 4th Baron Newborough.  They married on 7 November 1900 and he died on 20 July 1916 during WWI.  They didn’t have any children so his younger brother, Thomas, became the 5th Baron Newborough.

This makes me wonder anew at the often pushed narrative that QEQM was some awe inspiring beauty in her youth. Pretty tiara though!!
[/b]

She was gorgeous as a small child, IMO. Not so much by the age you see her in this picture. The First Lady does much better justice to “The Strathmore Rose”

QEQM was really a beautiful child, but from early adulthood onwards she was incredibly plain. I am quite fascinated that the imo dashing George was so after her (apparently she declined several proposals before she reluctantly said yes!).

I also never liked how some wore tiaras in the 1920s, like here as headbands across the forehead, but it looks smashing on Grace the 1st owner of this tiara! Her hairstyle is much better than QEQM's and she's very beautiful, carrying this so well.

I've heard her both described as a beauty and incrediblely vivacious and bubbly. There's one picture of her from the 30's - with a parasol standing by a large urn in the Buckingham Palace gardens that is particularly nice.
I just stumbled over the pic you mentioned by chance ... and remembered you mentioned it.
