The Luxarazzi Tiara Race (16): White House Tiara vs. Bavarian Lovers Knot Tiara vs. Princess Claire's Ruby Tiara

Back when we started the Luxarazzi Tiara Race in late June, we told you that there would be 32 tiaras facing off against each other to determine your ultimate favourite of the Grand Ducal Collection and that Princess Claire's new ruby set did not make the cut as the entry was simply too late. Well, it's not the poor rubies' fault that the wife of Prince Félix did not wear them before, is it?! So today, we actually have three tiaras fighting for your affection - but first, let's have a look back...

A Liechtenstein win on Liechtenstein national day! Can it get any more perfect!? Turns out though that there do seem to be a few fringe haters out there. Despite some predictions of yours, the Habsburg Fringe Tiara did not win in the clearest of fashions of the Luxarazzi Tiara Race's first round. But don't worry, it still got 90.91 percent of votes against the Golden Bandeau Tiara - still pretty clear of a result!
Today, I don't think it will be as clear though. First, we have the tiara we have often dubbed the White House Tiara; originally belonging to Grand Duchess Hilda of Baden, a born Nassau princess and daughter of Grand Duke Adolph, it was left to her niece Grand Duchess Charlotte who once wore it to a banquet at the White House; where the tiara remains today is unclear. Then we have the Bavarian Lover's Knot Tiara, which we talked about recently and while it might not be worn by Luxembourg princesses today, it's simply to pretty to scratch it from the Race because we have a late entry. That late entry, of course, is Princess Claire's Ruby and Diamond Tiara, worn at the recent national day celebrations.

A lot of choices today, I know! But tell us,...

As always, leave us a comment below which tiara is your favourite!

Voting closes on Wednesday night.
