♕  My Favourite Tiaras The Strathmore Rose Tiara

The Strathmore Rose Tiara was a wedding gift to Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon (the future Queen Elizabeth) from her father, the Earl of Strathmore. The five roses can be used as brooches and it has two different frames, so it can be worn; across the forehead or on the top of the head. Queen Elizabeth used it, mostly, in her early years as a royal. It was inherited by Queen Elizabeth II at the death of her mother.

Here’s the Strathmore Rose Tiara, which was a wedding gift to Queen Elizabeth, the Queen Mother. She wore it often in the bandeau style as a young woman, which is why I love it. It’s a beautiful, nature-inspired piece and I hope that some of the younger royals dust it off and bring it out soon! (People speculated that Kate might wear this one for her wedding, but she went with the Cartier Scroll Tiara instead. Still pretty.) The tiara was made around 1900 by Catchpole & Williams.
