The Belgians may not have extensive jewel vaults, but there are tiaras in the royal family’s possession that are reserved primarily for queens. The main one is the Nine Provinces Tiara, but there are a few more tiaras that have also only been worn by queens. Today, let’s have a look at one that was created by a Belgian jeweler, the Wolfers Tiara.
Happy National Day to all of our lovely readers from Belgium! Today is the annual celebration of the inauguration of King Leopold I in 1831. To help add some glitter to the day, we’re looking at one of the family’s most delicate, lovely tiaras: the diamond diadem worn by Princess Claire at her wedding to Prince Laurent.
For a royal house that has reigned over a country for more than a century, the Belgian royal family has a surprisingly small number of tiaras in their vaults. There are several reasons for this—pieces have been sold, inherited by women who married into other families, etc.—but the family has managed to hang on to one of their sparkliest heirloom pieces: the Nine Provinces Tiara, which is worn by the nation’s queen.
