Re: Securing tiaras and problems with pain

I've seen them on jewelers and auction website without the velvet, but from photos of the tiaras being *worn* I've usually seen velvet.
Elizabeth II seems to add some "hair" or at least do some serious back-combing when she wears a tiara. I think it provides some cushioning as well as a better backdrop to an all-diamond tiara, whose color can get lost against white hair.
