I think that instead of the poltimore and fleur de lis as big diamond tiaras I would choose this one http://madhattery.royalroundup.com/2012/01/danish-ruby-jubilee-gala-banquet-hrh-crown-princess-pavlos-of-greece/ it's splendid!!

 Shocked
Omg what a huge piece!
Soo pretty! flirt
A pity she doesn't have the right hairstyle for it in this picture (you can see the velvet wrapped base of the tiara a bignono)
You know Luxembourg has a huge glittery one as well, it's so tall it's nearly a crown!
The Luxembourg empire tiara!

So many to choose from! But I have to say, my absolute favorite is the Westminster Russian Kokoshnik:
http://www.royal-magazin.de/england/westminster/chaumet-email-diadem.htm

I love the Romanovs, and I could just see one of the Grand Duchesses in full court regalia with this one. Particularly Grand Duchess Xenia Alexandrovna, as I think her court dress color was the same sapphire blue. Here it is: http://www.alexanderpalace.org/jewels/ksenia.html

I also have to say, Queen Victoria had the best selection of tiaras. I especially loved that they all use different colored gemstones, which is particularly beautiful. Here are a couple of my favorite:
http://www.royal-magazin.de/england/queen-victoria/Victoria-strawberry-l-tiara.htm

http://www.internetstones.com/queen-victorias-emerald-and-diamond-tiara-designed-prince-albert.html

Her sapphire wedding tiara is lovely as well, but it's a bit too small for my taste  Cool  These other two, are just right.

The French jewels, especially the tiaras are stunning.

I love the cameo tiara and grand duchess tiara!

so hard to decide

for emeralds - the Duchess of Angouleme Tiara  (scroll down past the ruby tiara)

http://members2.boardhost.com/royal-jewels/msg/1409047711.html

I like the Poltimore a lot and too bad they had to sell it but the winner in the diamond category is:

The girls of great Britain and Ireland - such a sparkler

I also like  this Russian style rock crystal tiara by cartier (have to scroll down a bit)

http://maries-jewels-royals.blogspot.com/2012/07/unusual-tiaras.html

The Teck Crescent and the Gloucester Indian are magnificent but not often seen

I love Victoria's - Albert knew how to design jewelry - the emerald and the sapphire circlets are just so regal - perfect
