Or The late Queen Mum? I have an insane desire to see the Teck Circle Necklace united with the Vladimir Tiara. (I say in sane because all those circles would probably look insane together - but nonetheless I''d love to see it done. :) )

Date: 2/20/2008 8:10:43 PMAuthor: emeraldeyesThe lotus flower tiara, set with diamonds and pearls is made in the Egyptian taste and was said to have been designed by William Davies of E. Wolff & Co., who were suppliers to Garrard and a number of other famous retailers.(From the photo caption in Tiaras: A History of Splendour by Geoffrey Munn.)The description in the text of the same book:''One of the prettiest of Queen Elizabeth''s tiaras, which she has now given to Princess Margaret, was Egyptian in inspiration, arranged as a band of stylized lotus flowers and overreaching arches, with the graduated pinnacles surmounted by a single pearl...''Princess Margaret loaned this tiara to her son''s bride, The Honourable Miss Serena Stanhope, to wear on her wedding day.

Date: 2/20/2008 9:36:46 PMAuthor: emeraldeyesJust the tiara. Really lovely IMO, but it is a fender - although not as monstrous as the Braganza!
Date: 2/20/2008 9:49:26 PMAuthor: LadyAmythyst69I finally got this book today! I swear I remember reports saying that the tiara Serena wore was from the Stanhope family - which it clearly is not. Wouldn''t be the first time the papers got it wrong though...
