One thought on “Royal Tiaras 2017

  1. This is amazing! There were so many glittering events this year that it is extremely difficult to choose a favorite! There were times when we go to see tiaras that are rarely seen like the Dom Luis Diadem and the Hanoverian Flower Tiara. There were times when we got to see lots of favorites like during the Nobel Prize Ceremony. But I’ve got to say that my favorite overall has to be the Spanish State Visit to the UK. Not only was the diamond wattage and the number and quality of aquamarines prodigious, but Queen Letizia dazzled in the Joyas de Pasar. She had already worn “La Buena” for the Argentinian visit shortly before, so seeing it again plus other elements of the collection was quite a treat! Her follow-up event at the Guildhall was outstanding as well. 🙂
