So naturally, given the number of royals in the room, more than a few tiaras were present at this evening's white-tie banquet. Read on to see the best sparkly toppers of the night.

Following her husband's traditional enthronement ceremony, Empress Masako arrives at the Imperial Palace to attend the court banquet. She appears to be wearing the grand Meiji Tiara, as her mother-in-law did at Crown Prince Akihito's enthronement ceremony in 1990. According to royal jewelry blog The Court Royal, the Meiji Tiara is "one of the most important Western-style jewels in the imperial vaults."
