Re: Queen of Malaysia’s Aquamarine Tiara
Great news The Royal Watcher. I'm impressed by your aptitude and your actually being able to connect with such persons of high esteem and status.
The tiara is beautiful and outstanding.
A few years ago, after I published an article on the Tiara of Lady Saltoun , Her Majesty The Queen of Malaysia reached out and told me about her identical Aquamarine and Diamond Tiara , and then went into the vault, where she sent images of the Tiara and its case, which was stamped Carrington & Co by appointment to King Edward VII and Queen Alexandra, dating the piece to between 1901 and 1910.
Today, after the article on the Aquamarine Tiara was published, Her Majesty told me that she has seen comments that this Tiara is a fake or a copy of the Saltoun Tiara that she had made at Garrard and thus she wanted me to clarify that the Tiara was acquired by Sultanah Nora of Johor , the consort of the Queen’s grandfather, Sultan Ismail of Johor, at Hennell in London quite a few years ago, before being bought by Queen Azizah herself from her ‘Auntie Nora’. She said ‘I love the Tiara, even if its a copy … but its not a fake for sure’
