Here's an interesting gallery (http://news.instyle.com/photo-gallery/?postgallery=48217#1) of tiara sketches made by various jewelers at the request of InStyle.com. They speculate that she'll wear one already owned by the royal family, but did this just for fun.

My personal favorites are #1, #6, #8 (which is reminiscent of this tiara (http://coloreddiamond.info/index.php?action=dlattach%3Btopic=2804.0%3Battach= 24073%3Bimage) once owned by Grand Duchess Elizaveta Feodorovna of Russia)

I like your choices; and agree about #8,

It looks like Davids Bridal is going to be selling replicas of the potential tiaras

http://www.facebook.com/media/set/fbx/?set=a.10150148967966010.286636.57149201009It's interesting that out of all the tiaras she could wear, they think she may show up in the Spencer tiara. If there's one tiara there's a 99.99% chance of her NOT wearing, it would be that one.

They did a really good job on the Strathmore replica though. I'm not getting married, and I would be tempted to buy one.

Yes, I would wear something like the Strathmore if I were getting married. In fact, I did wear a small tiara with roses to my wedding. :)

If I were Catherine, I would not choose the Spencer tiara,
She doesn't need to shoulder more comparisons with Princess Diana than she already has,

Considering she's not a Spencer, she's not entitled to wear the Spencer tiara.

Why that keeps popping up drives me nuts!!

Just like some of the bridal experts saying or suggesting that her dress will be strapless or might have straps. Westminster Abbey just doesn't say strapless dress to me.

What is the name of this tiara? It is absolutely stunning.

No kidding!!

Speaking of what The Dress might look like...

Hello Magazine ~ Royal wedding: A dress straight from 'Lord of the Rings' for Kate (http://royalweddings.hellomagazine.com/prince-william-and-kate-middleton/20110412610/royal-wedding/judith-watt/dress/1/)

Like I wasn't going to post that. :D

I half heard something on the news this morning about there being an outcry about the alterations Catherine intends to make to her (and Diana's) engagement ring.

I couldn't catch the entire thing. Was I hearing things? Does anyone know what that's about?

I hadn't heard she intended to alter it. I did hear she had a few beads of metal set into the bottom of it- to size it to fit her finger without cutting it. It seems expected she would have to alter it to size though. There can't be an uproar about that.

A quick google search didn't bring up any articles about other changes.

What is the name of this tiara? It is absolutely stunning.It's called the Hessen Aquamarine tiara, and is part of a set. A necklace, bracelet & earrings also exist, although the tiara outshines them by far. Here's the link (http://www.royal-magazin.de/russia/ella/aquamarine-romanov-hessen.htm) that gives more back story, if you're interested (scroll down for the English translation).


Just like some of the bridal experts saying or suggesting that her dress will be strapless or might have straps. Westminster Abbey just doesn't say strapless dress to me.I will be absolutely shocked if Kate shows up with her shoulders uncovered. Doesn't mean her dress won't be strapless, but I think she'll have a cover of some sort if she goes the strapless route. I guess I always assumed there was some sort of rule in the Church of England that the shoulders have to be covered while in church. Could be wrong in that, so sorry if I am!

It's HER ring now, she can do with it as she chooses. It is probably some controversy created by people who think Diana was a saint & everything she ever owned should be enshrined.

I agree, Kate's dress could be strapless but she will have some sort of shrug, bolero or jacket or overbodice for the ceremony. And likely her dress will be so well made that we might not even know it's really strapless.

Autumn Kelly had a strapless dress with a lace shrug for her wedding to Peter Philips. Her bridesmaids wore strapless dresses though.

My guess though is that Kate's dress for the ceremony will have sleeves and then she will wear something different for the evening reception and that dress could very well be strapless.

She had two small platinum beads set in the inner base of the ring as it was too big for her finger, and she was concerned that the ring could come off as it was loose enough for it to twirl around her finger.

I seriously hope there isn't an uproar over something so……so…...what's the word I'm looking for? So……SENSIBLE, perhaps?

Anyone who is getting into a snit over her decision have it sized correctly is seriously off his or her nut. Imagine the alternative :yikes: -- If their panties are in a twist about a minor, unseen adjustment, they'd likely go bugfcuk gonzo if the ring slipped off somewhere and was lost.

Thanks - both for the name and the link :). The aquamarines in it are the perfect gemstone for the design of that tiara. The shade of blue in these particular stones is :swoon: - if they were any lighter, the tiara, while still pretty, would be rather bland due to the lack of contrast between the aquas and diamonds. That being said, if the shade of blue was deeper or richer, the stark contrast would be too heavy and conflict/detract from the delicacy of the tiara's design.
