Farewell Fotoshops: Leuchtenberg Tiara

In our continuing series of “Farewell Fotoshops” to close out our time here at The Handbag, we will take a look at The Leuchtenberg Sapphire Tiara. The tiara is part of a parure that was gifted to Princess Augusta of Bavaria, Duchess of Leuchtenberg, the wife of Eugène de Beauharnais, Duke of Leuchtenberg by his mother, the former Empress Joséphine of France. It found a home in Sweden with Augusta’s daughter, Josephine, who was the Queen consort of Oscar I of Sweden and Norway. The parure is now a part of the Swedish Royal Family’s foundation, and has been worn mostly by queens and those acting as First Lady of the country.

While it’s not one of my personal favorites, I’d say the “Mighty Leuch” would be successful on many a royal head.

What say you? Is it versatile enough to suit any member of royalty?
