Getty Images doesn't identify any of the women in the top photo; in this one, they note that Lady Pamela Smith, the Countess of Jersey, and the Countess of Birkenhead are among the group pictured. Below, I've provided close-ups of all of the tiara-wearers in these great photos. Today, your challenge is to try to identify any of the gorgeous tiaras (or aristocratic women) pictured! (And, remember, as with all of these jewel detective posts, there's no answer key -- I'm researching these along with you!)
