are we not all things?
She recognized the strange happiness that came from loving something without knowing why you did, that strange happiness that was sometimes so big that it felt like sadness. It was the way she felt when she looked at the stars.

get to know me meme (royalist edition) || (02/10) tiaras: The Poltimore Tiara

Made by Garrard for Florence, Lady Poltimore, in the 1870’s, this astonishing tiara was purchased for £5,500 at an auction in 1959 by either Queen Elizabeth II or Queen Elizabeth, the Queen Mother – acquired as a wedding gift for Princess Margaret in connection with her wedding to Antony Armstrong-Jones (later Earl of Snowdon) in 1960. It was one of Margaret’s favourite tiaras and its splendour perfectly suited her personality greatly. The magnificent tiara consists of all-diamonds set in gold and silver and has a diameter of 19.2 centimetres. It is a convertible piece of jewellery that can be broken down into a necklace and eleven brooches. After Margaret’s death in 2002, it met a grim fate (as seen with the eyes of a royalist) when it was auctioned off at Christie’s in 2006 by her children Viscount Linley and Lady Sarah Chatto for a staggering £926,400 (the value had originally been estimated at £150,000–£200,000) due to its provenance. The sale of the tiara reportedly caused a row between Viscount Linley and his father, Lord Snowdon, because Lord Snowdon was opposed selling out of his late ex-wife’s jewellery. It is currently unknown as to whether its new owners remember to give it a spin in the bathtub from time to time.

And then, too, I had learned early to assume something dark and lethal hidden at the heart of anything I loved. When I couldn’t find it, I responded, bewildered and wary, in the only way I knew how: by planting it there myself.
