  1. I was hoping for a tiara for the new Empress Masako at her first State Banquet. I hope that she will thrive in her new role.

      1. Oh, my goodness, yes! It was an amazing necklace! I wonder if it’s a new piece or part of the Imperial collection that we hadn’t seen before. The new Empress looked very excellent in her new role. I hope she feels excellent too!
