Thank you Prince and your BF! Would you believe I found that necklace at an antique store? I knew I had to give it a good home!!! I agree with you about the frame...it reminded me a little of the Swedish Connaught tiara. I ended up wearing it at the big gala event at my husband's workplace the week after I bought it!BF says this a great photo and I can't help but agree with him! Nice lawn, too!
On a related note, the new necklace is a show stopper and looks like a scroll tiara off the frame
HRH Queen Maxima,The Queen has a wide Tutti Fruti bracelet and matching necklace bought at auction, but that's not the one. This is a trio that Maxima likes wearing stacked together, but sometimes wears individually or with diamond bracelets. Each bracelet is set with a line of emeralds, rubies or sapphires interspersed by diamonds. They are like a mini version of Queen Elizabeth's Quintet by Cartier.
Here's a slightly better photo from Monday:
And speaking of Maxima's bracelets, I can't miss one of her favourites - the AAAMW and hearts in diamonds, the Art Deco diamond bracelet (first worn on that special 02/02/02) and the 8 row seed pearl bracelet with diamond spacers and ruby and diamond clasp:
Yes, the Connaught is similar, as is the pearl and diamond tiara of Queen Maria Cristina of Spain.Thank you Prince and your BF! Would you believe I found that necklace at an antique store?

We are wrapping up online learning this week, so today is my last #TiaraTeaching post. I made some last minute changes since I received a new tiara for Mother's Day! I love my family....
I also attempted to channel my inner Queen Silvia on the hair. It would take a professional to tame all the frizz, but I still had loads of fun playing with it! This tiara teaching insanity of mine has been a nice little break once a week from the craziness of coronavirus!
Thank you Deb! *curtseys* One of the other science teachers told me I need to continue tiara teaching next year...who knows....with some of the talk I'm hearing about what school will look like in the fall, I may well have plenty of opportunities to it!Oh, how truly lovely you look, LadyMaria! I can't beleve what a fabulous job you did in the back. I am sure that Queen Silvia has a great deal of help when she is pllacing a tiara (as do all royal ladies). The photos are exquisite. Thank you for the treat!
