Last year, my mother took me to the Cartier in America show at the Legion of Honor, and I totally fell in love with the sparkle, especially the tiaras. Really, what’s not to love? Do you think Kate will wear a tiara tomorrow? Here are some of my favorites on various royal and aristocratic ladies…

For those of us who aren’t princesses, something a bit subtler can add the perfect amount of bling to a wedding day ensemble. Headband, hair clip, ribbons, crystal, lace, there are all kinds of tiara-esque options for brides.

I wore a gorgeous piece from Jennifer Behr on my wedding day, and it completed my bridal look perfectly. Did you wear anything resembling a tiara for your wedding, or do you plan to? I keep thinking about how excited and nervous I was on my wedding day – can you imagine how Kate is feeling right now?!

    How prescient of you to realise that she would be wearing not just a tiara, but a Cartier tiara!

    I plan on wearing a jeweled headband of my own creation. I have a few on hand for my hair trial that is coming up in a few weeks. Can’t wait!

    So funny that you mentioned this before the wedding! Her tiara was perfect, and Cartier. :)
