A late Victorian diamond-set tiara of floral design

Description

A late Victorian diamond-set tiara of floral design, consisting of five diamond-set flowers with openwork folate design decorations graduating from the centre, connected with four openwork arches with foliate decorations, the three hundred and twenty-nine old European and rose-cut diamonds estimated to weigh 20 carats in total, converting to a necklace with the use detachable back-section encrusted with eleven rose-cut diamonds, all mounted in silver and yellow gold, circa 1890, measuring approximately 4.6 x 16cm, gross weight 71 grams.

An exceptional antique tiara. Tiaras have a way of capturing the imagination like few other pieces of jewellery can: since ancient times, they have symbolised status, nobility, and romance. In the late nineteenth-century, tiaras were at their peak in popularity. This tiara, created in around 1890, exemplifies the ornate opulence of the period. The wonderfully sparkling diamonds are arranged in a floral design: flowers, leaves, and vines weave through the tiara. Today, tiaras can be worn to weddings, white-tie events, and state occasions. This tiara can be transformed into a necklace, suitable for a black-tie event or a night at the opera. Romantic and naturalistic, this tiara is truly spectacular.
