Click here for an article in today's Repository about our fundraising efforts to purchase Ida's diamond tiara!
We scanned our original of Ida's portrait with the tiara and blew it up on the screen to get a better look at how she wore it. Since the wings are detachable and can be worn separately from the tiara as pins, Ida chose to wear them both on one side of her head for this photo. The feather is not part of the tiara.
