Nowadays, the term tiara is sometimes used interchangeably with the term diadem, and tiara is often converted into a word like diadem in other languages. Both words derive from the head ornaments worn by ancient men and women to signify high status. The term tiara is originally Persian in origin, the term first donated the high-pitched headdresses of the Persian kings, which were encircled by “diadems” (band in purple and white decoration)
Now it is used to describe almost any form of decorative head decoration. Ancient Greeks and Romans used gold to make wreath-shaped head decorations, while Scythians were identical to Scythians.
What is Sterling Tiara:
Sterling tiaras are extremely high quality, valued money tiaras which are mostly worn by queens and princess. They are made of pure diamonds and pearls and are awfully expensive.
Queen Elizabeth II is said to have the largest, most valuable, and most valuable set of tiaras in the world, many of which are the heirlooms of the British royal family. She’s also seen wearing them on state occasions. The Queen has inherited many of them, particularly from Queen Alexandra. In the 1920s, Queen Mary bought the Grand Duchess Vladimir Tiara. It consists of a variety of interlocking diamond circles. Pearl drops may be attached within circles or emeralds. Queen Mary had a tiara made for the Durbar of Delhi held in India in 1911. It is now on loan to the Duchess of Cornwall, the wife of Charles, the Prince of Wales. Queen Elizabeth II ordered a tiara ruby and diamond. A gift of aquamarines, which she got as a gift from the citizens of Brazil, was added to the diamonds to make a new tiara.
Other kings, emperors, and princesses regularly wear Sterling tiaras on formal evening occasions.
Other kings, emperors, and princesses regularly wear tiaras on formal evening occasions. The Swedish Royal Family has a set of Sterling Tiaras, as do the Danish, Dutch and Spanish monarchies. Many of the royal jewels of Denmark came to the collection when Princess Louise of Sweden married the future King Frederick VIII of Denmark. The dynasty of Romanov had a collection until the revolution of 1917. The royal family of Iran also had a huge set of sterling tiaras.
Examples of Sterling Silver Tiara:
- Queen Sophie of the Hellenes’s Diamond Sterling Silver Tiara
It is believed that the tiara was received as a wedding gift from one of Queen Sophie’s many royal relatives when she married Prince Constantine, the future King of Greece, in 1889. The daughter of Queen Sophie, Princess Helen, wore it after her mother died in 1932, and in 1938 it was granted to Sophie’s daughter-in-law, Frederica of Hanover. The tiara is so large that Frederica of Hanover was even able to wear a miniature nuptial crown on her wedding day in 1938. Since the overthrow of the Greek empire in 1973, the tiara disappeared. It was not seen until Princess Marie-Chantal of Greece wore it to Queen Margrethe of Denmark’s Ruby Jubilee in 2012.
- The Greville Emerald Kokoshnik Tiara
Often known as the Boucheron tiara from which it was made, the Sterling Silver Tiara was left to the Queen Mother in 1942 from Mrs. Greville and was lent to Princess Eugenie by the Queen for her wedding day.
