At one time Empress Farah didn't have base frames to all her tiaras because she wore many at an angle secured to hair pieces positioned towards the back of her head. |

: Empress Farah of Iran made a comment to HM the

: tiaras. The Queen whipped hers off her head

: base of the tiara, noting that she had that
: done to all of her tiaras. The Empress was
: impressed and immediately arranged for the
: same thing for her own tiaras.

: The comments about how the Empress of Japan
: longer wears tiaras and why jogged my
: memory. I have a newspaper item relating to
: how some prominent English ladies secured
: tiaras. The article does not say why all the
: different methods were used but it has made
: me think. It is a 1933 article from the
: Daily Telegraph . It says that Mrs Greville
: used a cap of silvery grey gauze to secure
: her tiara.
: If others have information about how tiaras
: are secured - and possibly how different
: royal ladies avoid pressure point pain, I
: think we could do an interesting thread,
: especially when those who use Photobucket
: are able to post again, as I think the
: placement of some tiaras and how they are
: secured provides some insights into how
: various ladies deal with possible (probable)
: pressure point pain from wearing rigid
: pieces of metal tied tightly to their heads.
