And last but certainly not least, we have royals from Britain, Luxembourg and Japan. I was hoping this category would include a certain Serene Highness from Monaco but Princess Charlene came to this wedding without a headpiece or tiara anywhere in sight (she didn’t wear a single piece of jewelery for that matter). Never mind as there were some new and wonderful tiaras on the three remaining major royals at this wedding.
The Countess of Wessex wore the Five Aquamarine Tiara (also known as the Canadian Aquamarine Tiara). She unveiled this last year at the Luxembourg Royal wedding and her repeat today suggests it may become a more regular tiara for her. It is a lovely tiara, although mounted a little higher up on the base than looks best, in my opinion. Perhaps with some more voluminous hair, this could be a great tiara for Sophie. The aquamarines certainly are a great colour for her.
Princess Stéphanie, Hereditary Grand Duchess of Luxembourg, wore the Topaz or Citrine and Pearl Bandeau Tiara for the first time. This tiara, presumably on-loan from her mother-in-law Grand Duchess Maria Teresa, appears to be a private piece acquired for the Grand Duchess when she was first married. No matter the history, this tiara had potential to fall flat as a pancake but Princess Stéphanie propped it up with a marvellous up-do and showed the gems off to great success. If she’s going to wear beige, this is how to do it.
Princess Hisako of Takamado wore a beautiful diamond tiara of unknown name and origin that we can only assume is the tiara in the vast Japanese Royal collection allocated for her use. It’s a beautiful floral tiara the perfect size for this petite princess… I would like it very much without the awkward bangs and a slightly softer hairstyle.
