I actually go to the museum about once a year - LM,they've just redone the dinosaur hall for the first time in over 30 years. My husband took me to the Faberge exhibit for our first Valentine's Day together. That tiara is gooooooooooorgeous in person.

Now I see how being the Crown Jeweller is a 24/7 job.
Written by prince.of.preslav » June 2nd, 2012, 4:44 pm:About the "kerfuffle" - That's a rather well know story, actually. The fringe tiara snapped in two just before it was placed on Princess Elizabeth's head and the Court Jeweller had to come at the palace in a hurry to repair it. In photos one can actually see that there is a larger gap between the central fringe and the one on the right (our left). I guess that's where the tiara broke. Further mending must've been made later as there isn't such a large gap now.Actually, last year we were told a slightly different story about the accident by Lady Pamela Hicks, who was a bridesmaid at the wedding. Quoting The Queen she said something along the lines of "Don't worry, dear. We have a dozen of other diamond tiaras here. We'll find you something (nice) to wear.". I think that either Lady Pamela's memory is/was playing tricks or Her Majesty was joking
