The four top seeds in the tournament (Queen Alexandra's Kokoshnik, the Braganza Tiara, the Girls of Great Britain and Ireland Tiara, and the Meiji Tiara) all made it through the first round of voting!

But we did have a few upsets in round one! These Cinderella tiaras (The Dutch Laurel Wreath Tiara, Queen Mary's Diamond Bandeau, Princess Benedikte's Floral Birthday Tiara, the Vasa Tiara) surprised their higher-ranked competition and will keep on dancing in round two.
