Questions:

  1. These two are not the same tiaras. In Japan, princesses who are born to the Imperial Family creates their own tiaras when they turned to adult, 20years old, and princesses who are marry into the Imperial Family create their own when they got married.
    Korean Imperial Family had have its own property.
