I think the kokoshnik style tiara used by QEII originally from Queen Alexandra could be very versatile. Many of the queen's parures that have no matching tiaras could look complete if that tiara would incorporate brooches that the queen owns. For example, the Dubai sapphire set would look something like this if the Queen Victoria brooch is attached temporarily at the center of that tiara. The brooch could be redone at the back to incorporate screws for attaching to the tiara or replacing with the usual pin for a brooch.

This is my photoshop of the idea.
