There are 2 frames for the Strathmore Rose tiara. One that is wide, to be worn across the forehead as was popular when the Duke of York and Elizabeth married, and a regular frame to sit atop the head in the more traditional format. As far as it needing repair or fortification, plenty of time to get it done. Pretty sure Garrard or Asprey or whomever would do a bang up job quickly.

How about some bandeaux?

It was exhibited at the V and A in 2002, so I'm pretty confident that it's still intact. http://www.thecourtjewell...trathmore-rose-tiara.html

I've read in a places that it's very fragile and wouldn't be able to be worn, but it'd be great to see it. Fergie's tiara doesn't do much for me and there's so much lurking in the BRF vaults that I'd be happy with anything that hasn't been seen in a while.

I can only imagine the jewels they have stored away that no one has seen or those that haven't been seen for a long while. Honestly, what's the point of them if they never get worn and are hidden away?

Pretty good investment? Diamonds hold their value in all markets.

Add to that the historical value, something that can be measure since it's pure emotional, and you got an immeasurable fortune.

That's a beautiful tiara. I bet those fleurs de lys detach as brooches.
