Baden Sunburst Tiara

Today’s glittering tiara belongs to the members of the family who ruled the German Grand Duchy of Baden until 1918. However, they have managed to keep their Sunburst Tiara and their Ruby Wreath Tiara. The Sunburst Tiara was worn by the Duke of Edinburgh’s sister, an Austrian Archduchess, and brides marrying into the Baden family in recent years.

Made in the 19th century, the Baden Sunburst Tiara was seen on Princess Theodora of Greece, Margravine of Baden at the Wedding Gala of Crown Prince Frederik of Denmark and Princess Ingrid of Sweden in 1935, the 80th Birthday celebrations of King Gustav V of Sweden in 1938, and the Greek Monarchy Centenary Gala at the Royal Palace of Athens in 1963. The Margravine was the sister Princess Margarita of Hohenlohe Langenburg, Princess Cecilie of Hesse, and Princess Sophie of Hanover, as well as the Duke of Edinburgh.

In 1966, the Baden Sunburst Tiara was worn by Archduchess Valerie of Habsburg-Lorraine, from the Tuscan line of the Habsburg family, when she married Princess Theodora’s son, Maximilian, Margrave of Baden. As the Margravine of Baden, Archduchess Valerie wore the Sunburst Tiara at a couple of grand events in the 1960s and 70s, and recently at the Wedding Ball of the Prince of Prussia and Princess Sophie of Isenburg in 2011.

In 2001, the Sunburst Tiara was worn by Stéphanie Kaul when she married Bernhard, Hereditary Prince of Baden, eldest son of the Margrave and Margravine. The Hereditary Princess has often worn the Sunburst Tiara, most notably for the Wedding Ball of Prince Albert II and Princess Charlene of Monaco in 2011 and the Wedding Gala of Hereditary Grand Duke Guillaume of Luxembourg and Countess Stephanie de Lannoy in 2012.

The Sunburst Tiara was last publicly seen on Christina Höhne, when she married Prince Michael of Baden, the youngest son of the Margrave and Margravine, in 2015. Lets hope it makes a reappearance soon!
