Wearing bling in a large manner.

 Now a post for Elephant's Child .
She is under the impression that's she's too large to wear a tiara (I bet my bum is bigger than yours) so here's Maria Theresa of Luxembourg wearing some serious bling.  She's not so tall but a little broad across the beam and she carries off this many diamonds like a champ. The Luxembourg Empire Tiara, not for the small and timid. 
Although if you're just popping down to the corner store for a coffee and muffin, this smaller bandeau of rubies and diamonds would be quite in order.  Just make sure the thongs match and you're wearing gloves.

Oooh. Now that is some serious bling. I can see myself doing the washing up while wearing it, and smiling regally.

The smaller would be perfect in the garden.

I have been converted. And I figure tiara owners can wear them anywhere they want (as long as their thongs match and the mandatory gloves are worn.) Megathanks.

I like that smaller one, perfect for coffee and cake out with friends.
Are old suede gloves good enough?
Or I have some fingerless pink things I wear in the winter to keep my hands warm while I'm typing here.

I got your email, but can't answer it yet. Every time I try the program crashes. I'll get to it tomorrow.

Oooh, I like the smaller one *and* I have some red thongs - mine!

Kath, good pick especially considering the colour of your eyes at the moment. We have a north wind in Melbourne today so my eyes aren't exactly looking the best.

River, I do have a smaller one with little diamond stars that tremble when you walk. Just great with fingerless pink.
Forget the suede unless they're elbow length, that says serious money here.

EC, I have a vivid picture in my mind of you in the garden flashing bling and attracting every magpie within 3 kms.
I did post a long time ago, photos of the two tiaras I made for myself. I used to wear them at the Christmas craft market.
