10 Days of Tiaras - Part One

In honour of Queen Elizabeth's Diamond Jubilee Celebrations we begin
The 10 Days of Tiaras

Starting with the Brazilian Aquamarine Tiara.

Given to the Queen on her Coronation from the President and people of Brazil, it originally looked like this.

The tiara was redesigned and adapted to take four scroll ornaments from an aquamarine and diamond head jewel given to The Queen by the Governor of São Paulo in 1968.

Not my favourite tiara. Is it yours?
