R4R Zodiac Royalty: Scorpio (Sun)

23 October- 21 November

Element: Water

Scorpio is the sign of mystery, intensity and passion. It is sometimes referred to as the “sexual sign” because its inhabitants often seem to ooze sex appeal. They are dedicated friends and excellent partners… for the most part. Scorpios have a reputation for straying to other beds, but have an uncanny ability to keep it covered up. They have an innate charisma and a certain X factor that is hard to put a finger on, but that is just the way Scorpios like it. They have a quiet intensity that makes an excellent leadership quality. Scorpios stay very well-informed about others while only allowing what they want known about themselves. They prefer to operate in stealth mode while gaining leverage on those they view as potential threats. Their passion runs deep and can border on obsession, whether it be with a hobby or an old flame. Scorpios rarely forget an insult and will wait years for the perfect opportunity for revenge. Their power isn’t boasted or thrown around gregariously, but reserved until the exact moment of execution. Scorpios always get what they desire.

The Brabant Laurel Wreath Tiara

Made by Hennel & Sons in 1912, this classic laurel wreath tiara is comprised of 631 diamonds and can also be worn as a necklace. It was given to the new Duchess of Brabant and Crown Princess, Mathilde, from the Belgian nobility to celebrate her 1999 wedding to Crown Prince Philippe. Until the couples accession to the throne, this was the only tiara at Mathilde’s disposal.
