Tiara Thursday

We have a tiara bonanza. You get three for the price of one! Let’s take a look, shall we!

The first tiara on our list is this lovely turquoise and diamond tiara. It’s designed as five palmettes, each centered around a large cabochon turquoise and set in yellow gold. The tiara is embellished throughout with circular-cut and rose-cut diamonds. The best part about this tiara? It’s convertible and can be worn as several brooches. Made in 1830.

Next up is this lovely diamond tiara. Until this tiara was sold by Sotheby’s, it belonged to an American “philanthropist.” The diamond tiara was probably made in France in the early 20th century. It’s set with old European, old mine and rose-cut diamonds in a foliate design. Lovely. I’d wear it.

Last but not least is this intriguing mystery tiara. Actually the style reminds me a little of Crown Princess Margareta of Sweden’s Ruby Tiara. The tiara is set on a flexible band which can be detached to form a necklace. We don’t know where or when it was made, but we have a clue because it came in a fitted box stamped Collingwood & Co. I will gladly wear it as a necklace!

Which tiara is your favorite?

  1. To chose just one is veeeery difficult when presented with such a selection! Although turquoises are not my favourite gems the tiara looks lovely and in addition it’s convertable! I love convertable pieces. Just proves that extra thought has been put into it when designing and making it. And of course giving the owner various options making it wearable not only at grand tiara events. The second one is also beautiful, as is the third. But all in all I think I would go for the first one.
