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?

If you don't wish to wear a hat, don't.
But next year could you please leave the hair net at home?
It just doesn't work.


I'm sorry to say,



It didn't work last year either.

Pink Saturday - May 19

As part of the Diamond Jubilee celebrations, the Queen's Sovereigns' Lunch was held today at Windsor Castle.

And there was pink in the historic house!

But first, check out Princess Charlene of Monaco-she has had her hair cut. And finally she is wearing some colour!

Would love to see a close-up of that brooch.


Happy Pink Saturday!
I'm joining Beverly at How Sweet the Sound for the weekly roundup of all things Pink.
