    I love the The Girls of Great Britain and Northern Ireland Tiara, it is perfect.

    The real story behind all of the Crown Jewels that we see, that once belonged to the Romanovs is that, the King and Queen refused to save their Russian cousins from being murdered by the Boleshiviks, BUT they had no problem buying their crown jewels at marked down prices.

    Well.... technically, Queen Mary didn't buy the Russian crown jewels. Those were taken by the Bolsheviks. She did purchase a number of items from various exiled Romanovs, including some from the Dowager Empress Maria Feodorovna (the sister of Queen Alexandra of England). But there is no reason to believe that those pieces were anything but personal property. And since the market was absolutely flooded with jewels at the time, Queen Mary actually paid them more than what they would have gotten had they went elsewhere. But anyway, the only royal pieces in that link that had previously belonged to a Romanov were the Vladimir diadem & the Sapphire & Diamond Bandeau. Everything else is purely English.

    And not to go further off-topic than I already have, but I do have to clear up some misconceptions. Yes, George V did initially invite the Imperial Family to England. Yes, he later reneged that invitation for fear of bringing revolution within his own realm. But when this all went down, no one knew that the entire family would be murdered. Not even the Bolsheviks knew what would happen. Had George V known what their fate would be, would he have changed his mind? I would hazard a guess that he would have at least found a place for them somewhere outside of England... Canada, Ireland or even Australia. As the ruler of over half the globe, I'm sure something could have been arranged.

    Nice bling! I love the Strathmore and voted for it. Did anyone click on the link to the Queen's Burmese Ruby tiara? Holy cow. I think it's stunning.

    But I am kinda annoyed that they took donations from girls to finance the Girls of GB and Ireland tiara. Really, buy it with your own money.

    It was a different time for starters, but the Girls of GB and NI was a wedding gift to Princess Mary, later Queen Mary from the people of the country she was going to be Queen Consort to. I don't get the problem there truthfully.

    I know someone asked about my calling her "Katherine" instead of "Catherine" and I freely admit to screwing up that one. It was also my personal bias sneaking in there, as I just plain prefer Katherine. I always have hated how it looks spelled w/a "C" for some unknown reason, so...Mea Culpa on that one.

    I chose the Strathmore because I'm a girly-girl and I love roses, darn it!

    Thanks for the fun link, Araorn Elessar!

    It's likely that she will not wear a tiara until after they are married and are coming back down the aisle together. Diana did the same and so did Sarah Ferguson.

    Diana was wearing her tiara from the start as were Sarah and Sophie. Sarah's was under her floral wreath. Even Autumn Kelly wore a tiara.

    Maybe her choice of tiara will depend on her choice of a dress. Just a thought.

    I believe, at least the show I saw that had an interview on the matter with the Duchess of York's dress designer said, Sarah wore flowers with her veil, and switched to the tiara without the blusher.

    Mmm...I love royal weddings. Can't wait

    My favorites were the Strathmore, Duchess of Teck and Crescent Tiara, and the Queen Mother's Scroll Tiara. I voted for the Scroll Tiara because I think it's well suited to Katherine; it's very elegant in a somewhat understated, modern way. There's a good mix of youth and maturity to it, IMO.

    ETA: AragornElessar, thanks for the royal jewelry website link! I now have another awesome procrastination tool.

    I love the The Girls of Great Britain and Northern Ireland Tiara. I think it is perfect for her. I love the height of it. And with Kate's long glossy dark hair....I think it would be set off beautifully.

    I hope they have my cell number, so they can call and ask my opinion
    DH - and that's just my opinion

    3. The Strathmore Rose Tiara -

    What a great story, people.

    It was given to the late Queen Mother by her parents upon the occasion of her marriage to Prince Albert on April 26, 1923. While her father was a Peer, Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon was legally a commoner, a very familiar sounding story with Catherine being a commoner.

    But part of me thinks that she won't wear one, at least until after the ceremony, sort of like arriving in a car, leaving in a carriage. Or perhaps she too will cover it with flowers until after the ceremony.

    It wouldn't surprise me if she didn't wear a tiara on her wedding day, but instead have a jeweled hair clip of some sort. Queen Elizabeth is famous for her massive brooch collection, it's possible that one of them could be converted to wear in the hair. Or it could be something her family could afford to purchase for her.

    Far too many of them are far too beautiful to choose among them.

    Is it possible that she might get a new tiara? Or perhaps a reworking of one or more older pieces in need of repair anyway, to create something new and modern for the 21st century?

    When I read the history of these pieces, I think it would be such a statement if the Queen gave Kate her own - and in generations to come, we'd be talking about the Catherine Tiara.

    I think it would be awesome if she wore this one.

    To think that fun is simple fun, while earnest things are earnest, proves all too plain that neither one thou truthfully discernest.
