  1. This tiara may not have been new on her marriage. It seems to take the shape of a coronet as seen in spanish aristocratic heraldry of I think a duke. Therefore it would have been a popular choice for an aristocratic spanish family and less appropriate for a royal tiara (excpet her family were I think spanish marquesses).

  2. This tiara is absolutely beautiful. It fits her like a glove. No one can doubt the unique versatility of this one. If I'll have a tiara and ill be a new Queen this is the one i will take.
