As to Pat66‘s images, this type insignia did not appear on the market until 2014 at the earliest to my knowledge. I have studied this Order since 1970 and never saw such pieces until they were offered on German eBay. By 2016-7 they appeared on French and U.S. eBay. Rick Research, the guru of this award here on GMIC and elsewhere [some material links below], tracked down the originator. In one of his posts he exposes the chain of evidence. Unfortunately I could not find his specific post on the point at this time. Seem to recall that the pieces came out of Poland or Russia.
The Bagration-Mukhraneli Royal House of Georgia website http://www.royalhouseofgeorgia.ge/p/eng/451/order-queen-tamar-order-history reports the following the regarding the Order:
This award was made official by the Democratic Republic of Georgia in 1918 and recognized as an order of merit. The Order was abolished by the Communists, but its national significance was such that H.R.H. Prince Irakly – at the petition of the Union of Traditionalist Georgians – restored it and proclaimed himself Grand Master, with the consent of his father H.R.H. Giorgi XIII who was Head of the Royal House in 1942.
Comment—Does this suggest a 1942 date for reactivating the Order? Rick Research spent years trying to verify this information in general and the date in particuliar. Efforts included discussions with various experts including Dr. Klietmann, contacting the Royal House and Georgian monarchist groups. Nowhere did he find evidence of this claim.
It was then awarded to Georgians of the Diaspora and some members of the European royalty, among whom stand out the Head of the Imperial House of Russia HIH Grand Duke Wladimiro Kirilovich and the Head of the House of Borbón-Sevilla, Duke Francisco de Borbón y de Borbón, who was already an effective collaborator at the time.
Comment---Rick Research attempted to verify HIH Grand Duke Wladimiro Kirilovich and Duke Francisco de Borbón y de Borbón as Order recipients, again without success. Efforts included contacts with both families and close scrutiny of 100s of images of these men. Rick could not find any information regarding awards to Georgians of the Diaspora, including among his Georgian monarchist informants. He did find much information regarding awards of the Order of the Sacred Tunic of Our Lord during the period in question.
Upon the death of H.R.H. Prince Irakly [October 1977], his son H.R.H. Giorgi XIII did not want to make any more concessions from this Order for reasons of discretion, and it remained inactive.
Given these historical precedents, recently H.R.H. Davit Bagrationi has resolved to reincorporate her fully into the Equestrian Heritage of the Royal House of Georgia, awarding it a new Constitutional Letter and conceding some appointments.
Comment---Philip Eagleton, CEO of the insignia manufacturing firm WORTH, came into contact with H.R.H. Davit Bagrationi regarding the Order in 2007-9. A proposal to revive the Order occurred at that time. Eagleton prepared preliminary insignia sketches and commissioned an in depth research effort. In the end, WORTH lost the manufacturing agreement to Cejalvo. See http://www.condecoracionescejalvo.es/noble-decorations.html for images of their Tamara insignia, apparently based on Eagleton’s designs.

I would be remiss to omit mention of the Republic of Georgia’s state honor The Order of Queen Tamara (თამარ მეფის ორდენი). A decree of the Parliament of Georgia № 1553 dated July 31, established the award. The Order may be conferred ONLY on females for outstanding services to the people and the homeland. The Order of Queen Tamara is awarded with a cash prize of 4,000 lari.
I hope that this presentation proves useful.
If anyone has any information or images relating to alleged 1942-1977 Tamara Order usage or bestowals please share them. I would welcome any evidence that the insignia type Pat66 illustrates dates before 2014. That type has been seen with dark blue and light blue soft enamel color centers, two different sorts of star rays and two different type reverse pins.
