Pick your ultimate ruby tiara!
Rubies are up there with emeralds and sapphires as colored precious stones represented in many royal collections. They work well in natural interpretations like flowers and wreaths, but motifs are plentiful.
The Mellerio on the left above, the Peacock on the right. And you can throw in the ruby version of Queen Emma's Diamond Tiara, if you want.
Oriental Circlet, a Prince Albert special, and the new Burmese Ruby Tiara.
Greek Ruby Parure Tiara - and the Danish collection, with the Danish Ruby Parure. The Greek one has a twin in the Baden family.
Queen Fabiola's Spanish Wedding Gift Tiara.
Edward VII Ruby Tiara that belonged to Crown Princess Margaret of Sweden and is now worn by Queen Silvia.
Bains de Mer Tiara, and a probable loaner double row ruby tiara worn by Princess Grace. Spain also has a double row of rubies (which can also be worn as a single row tiara - very flexible) known as the Niarchos Rubies, which were a wedding gift to Queen Sofia.
we've seen on the Duchess of Castro.
As a reminder, here's what your ultimate tiara collection looks like so far:
Ready to vote for your favorite?
-Vote for one tiara in the comments. (If you're mentioning multiple tiaras in your comment, indicate which one gets your vote, or I will just count the first one.)
-I will also count the number of "likes" or up arrows on those comments, so you can vote that way too.
-Non-royal tiaras and tiaras that no longer exist are fair game too.
