Readers' Top 15 Tiaras: #2. The Dutch Diamond Bandeau

Our countdown of your favorite tiaras continues with...

#2. The Dutch Diamond Bandeau 

I told you when we first covered this tiara that it would make my desert island list of five essential tiaras. As it turns out, we’d all have to be on the same island. (Though something tells me we’d never get it out of Máxima’s hands to take it on our three hour tour in the first place.) In a competition that ended up favoring the “go big or go home” rule, I love that you made sure to give this one a special pass for its own brand of going big. Incidentally, this is also the only diadem that came anywhere close to giving our #1 tiara some competition.

Are you surprised at where this fell on our countdown list?
