The tiaras are all up for bid on Sothebys right now. And yes OMC, the first 2 Roxburghe tiaras are both expected to fetch between 295,000.-495,000. im not sure why either when one is a Cartier and the other isn't.  :-\

From the single, low-res photo it looks modern (1970s ->). If you have more images, especially of the back, we may be able to say something more.

In terms of estimate (for which I assume you mean value"), it's impossible to even guess without having the item in hand - the metal could be silver or could be platinum. The stones could be diamonds or could be CZ (or could be quartz). They could be good colour, cut and quality or they could be mediocre in all three respects - from the photo it's impossible to establish even a rough size...

Ah... OK. Thank you for posting a much better quality second image. To my embarrassment I have to change my tune completely: I think it's a late 19th century "bright cut" tiara. No stones - only sharp polished metal surfaces that in the first photo looked like gem facets. This makes life easier in one sense: no need to worry about stone species, quality and size. On the other hand, the material value is definitely negligible (at best it's silver, and silver is currently trading for about $0.55/gram of pure silver), and the fashion for this kind of thing is long gone... so I don't think it's worth much, unfortunately.
