Greek Emerald Tiara

This particular tiara has gone through several forms. It began with Grand Duchess Olga of Russia, who married King George I of Greece in 1867. When she moved to Greece, she took a set of emeralds with her. She used the emeralds as separate pieces, simply pinning them to her dress and kokoshink.

After Olga’s death in 1926, the emeralds went to her grandson, King George II. George’s wife Elisabeth took control and began using the emeralds in a tiara. She first wore a single emerald in a bandeau across her forehead, as was typical of the time. Later, Cartier made the a kokoshnik style tiara with several of the emeralds.

Frederika, wife of King Paul I, had aspects of the tiara removed, creating the tiara we know today. Frederika wore it as Queen, but passed it onto Princess Anne-Marie of Denmark in 1964 when Anne-Marie married Frederika’s only son, King Constantine II. Anne-Marie has worn it quite often since becoming Queen of Greece.

MARVEL CINEMATIC UNIVERSE.

All Dates are Official. Movies from Doctor Strange onward are not. This is my speculation to what the upcoming slate of Marvel Studios films will entail, coming off the announcement of the new release dates!

GIVEAWAY EXTENDED!

When I posted this giveaway a month ago, I hadn’t planned to be in London on the 31st of July (the original closing date of this giveaway) and I am unable to select the winners until I get home later in the week. Due to this, I am extending the giveaway by just over a week and the winners will now be selected on Saturday 9th August.

Don’t miss out! This is your last chance to enter! ^___^ xox

YAY!!! I cannot believe it, but I have reached a phenomenal 50,000 followers (now 55,555)! That’s 49,500 more than I ever hoped to have, hehe, and to celebrate and say thank you for your unbelievable support, I want to give a little something back.


There will be three lucky winners who will each win one of these prizes…

1ST PRIZE:
The large Oh-Totoro (grey) plushie.

2ND PRIZE:
The medium Chu-Totoro (blue) plushie.

3RD PRIZE:
The small Chibi-Totoro (white) plushie.

All three of these plushies are genuine Japanese merchandise and feature the official “Approved by Studio Ghibli” sticker, so are very high quality! ^___^


HOW TO ENTER:

1. You must be following oh-totoro

     - Each reblog counts as an entry. You may reblog once per day.
3. You must be willing to give me your postal address.
     - Well, this should be obvious.
4. A photo of each winner with their prize would be greatly appreciated so I can reblog it to oh-totoro, but this is not a requirement.


DATE OF DRAW:

SATURDAY 9th AUGUST 2014 (and will be announced a week later)

I will contact the three winners on this date and give them 48 hours to respond to my Ask. If I don’t receive a response, I will nudge up those who have responded and redraw the lowest prize. This will also be the case if Asks are not enabled. Make sure your Asks are enabled!
