Were there many events to wear it to in the years after she inherited it?  :-/ She probably would've worn it to Missy's coronation if she'd attended.

I have never liked the Duchess of Kents small Aquamarine, it is very uninspirational and i would prefere the imposing Brazilian Aquamarine. It is just very similar to a button tiara.

The Duchess of Kent's tiara had originally a blue gullioche enamel surround.It was altered after it came into the Duchesses possession.

It's funny--on the Windsor Jewels site (the latest one) I'd posted the link that B5218 did, to the Kent aquamarine tiara, because I liked it better than the Brazilian one.  :) Of recent aquamarine tiaras, I like the one that Sophie wore not too long ago--the one that started speculation about whether it was part of Princess Alice of Greece's aquamarine set or not. Speaking of which, Alice's aquamarine tiara (a gift from her aunt Ella) was lovely.

Yes--Sophie's tiara is the nicest of the aquamarine tiaras I've seen lately IMHO.  Is Alice's tiara the one Princess Anne wears earlier on this thread?

No, Princess Anne wear's Princess Alice's Greek Key tiara. Alice had an aquamarine one that has apparently been dismantled.

I just wandered over this thread; the pic isn't here, so I suppose it is on the Windsor Jewels#4 thread.  Anyway, it is definately aquamarines & definately on Anne.  Come to think of it, I think it came to her from the Queen Mum and is too nice to appear here anyway ;)

The Greek Key Tiara is really nice.  I think a great part of the misfit of the problematic tiaras is that they are too complicated in design, whereas the Greek Key is simplistic.  Marie Coburg's ruby tiara was definitely a misfire, even with a super-updo.  The Kent aquamarine tiara I don't like; the flower design looks very '60s to me.  Are there any pictures of Camilla in the honeycomb or am I missing something?
 CP Victoria is too cute to wear that nasty button tiara.  I like her necklace in that picture, though.
 BTW I was thinking about starting a thread on Favorite Royal Jewelry, but I don't know if it would be redundant as we already have the Windsor Jewels threads and this one, too.  ???

Maybe one of least known jewelry or lost jewelry would be a nice addition... ;D
