Redesign It: The Edward VII Ruby Tiara

It has a stellar royal provenance (a gift from a British king to a Swedish crown princess), a complicated family history, and a place in a current queen's jewel collection, but the ruby tiara given by Edward VII to his niece, Margaret of Connaught, is rather divisive when it comes to aesthetics. If you had a chance to make changes to this tiara, what would you do? Put on your creative thinking caps and offer us some options!
