Tiara Thursday: Sibilla's Art Deco Tiara

Though she chose not to wear a tiara on her wedding day, Princess Sibilla of Luxembourg does have a gorgeous tiara to call her own.
Princess Sibilla's Art Deco Tiara
This lovely architectural Art Deco style diamond tiara is thought to have been a gift from her parents at the time of Sibllia’s wedding to Prince Guillaume of Luxembourg (she does indeed come from a wealthy family).
In the large setting
This large tiara isn’t just attractive, it’s handy too: it converts from its full size down to a more petite version by removing the top portion of the diadem. Just another reason why I personally am a big fan of this one.
Two angles of the small setting
We don’t get to see Sibilla in a tiara very often; she and her husband have taken a backseat royal role, even more so now that Grand Duke Henri and Grand Duchess Maria Teresa’s children are grown and are playing a part in royal engagements. Though she was allowed to borrow the Belgian Scroll Tiara from her mother-in-law Grand Duchess Josephine Charlotte, this is Sibilla’s only tiara. Now, we just need her to get out more so I can admire it more often.

What do you think of Sibilla’s architectural diadem?
