Are you asking about my old tiara stories? Kind of scary to think I've been hovering around Pricescope for ten years! AGBF was here too! In this thread, go to page 178... I have added a couple more to my collection, but never got around to posting them here.

I should try to do that, shouldn't I?
Actually I think it is obligatory! And thank goodness you have been here! You are one of the most knowledgeable posters ever to grace this thread. So where are the new tiaras?

Definitely three strands of pearls.
HM appears to be genuinely enjoying her duties in her later years which is lovely to see. Her eyes are most often smiling in photos.

Awww...thanks Deb!!

Here's the first new one. I have to admit, there wasn't a reason to buy this one. I saw it and thought it looked pretty. There's nothing wrong with buying yourself a new tiara. I've had this one for over a year.

I just got this one in August. I bought this one for myself to celebrate my new job. I moved from the middle school where I've been for the last 12 years to the high school in the district. I've wanted this for a while, and the right job never opened at the right time. The stars finally aligned and I am teaching high school chemistry now. This is my "Highness of High School" tiara!

Wow! I think that is the first gold one of yours I have ever seen! Beautiful (as is the one above).

I think it's just a trick of the lighting. It is sliver-toned, not gold-toned. What I do like about this one is that it doesn't have the combs attached...it is easier to style hair around since I don't have to worry about hiding the combs.

Yes, for a rare lazy Saturday afternoon it is fun to play with hair styles and tiaras. #stressrelief

Hmmm im looking at that tiara and thinking she must have been the Queen then
But she just looks so young
I guess everyone who lived through WW2 was prematurely aged - i never thought of thst before
My grandma was only in her early 70s when she died but she was always an old lady

Question, the Ruby Peacock Parure is made up of the tiara and matching necklace, correct?

Yes, the necklace and tara go together. I think there might be a brooch too? I'd have to check. In a way, this set reminds me of the mirrored sets of the Japanese RF, but there's just enough difference to make it not too matchy-matchy. For example, the spray on top of the tiara has diamonds, then rubies, then more diamonds. The necklace has the large ruby cabochan drops. I think (not sure, will have to go check to confirm) that this set disappeared for a while and Magpie Maxima brought it back to life. She's very good at that!

Yes, I thought it was just a convertible tiara but noticed the design difference after studying the pictures more closely.

I am hoping to see more of the Dutch Royal Jewels, keep up the "good work", Queen Max.

Many of the "big rocks" were brought over from Russia by Catherine the Great's grand daughter, right?
