Video: Gala performance for Queen Margrethe's 70th Birthday, 2010. Zoom ahead to 4:57 for a glittering view of this tiara in action.Diamond fringe tiaras have a tendency to look like clones of one another in their simplest form, but Queen Alexandrine's version puts an interesting spin on the basic design. The tallest pieces are almost like the rays of Queen Alexandra's Kokoshnik Tiara in a more spaced out arrangement, with their diamonds of graduated size. The smaller pieces between are noticeable in a photograph of the tiara alone, but disappear when in use. The spaces they create give the tiara a lighter, more airy feel than many of its fellow fringe designs. I adore the fringe tiara in its most classic format above all, but this variation has a lot of appeal.
