Object Description

A splendid late 19th Century Diamond Fringe Necklace which also converts into a Tiara fitting. The necklace is in 14ct (stamped) Rose Gold, Silver Tipped and “Rub Over and Pave Set” with 494 “Old Cut” Diamonds, independently assessed as being of 103 Carats, I-J & Faint Brown Colours, and VS-SI Clarity. A “Crown” mark & 14ct mark on the fastener indicates that this is plausibly of Austrian origin.

Independent Gemmological report available upon application.

Object History

This spectacular Necklace Tiara has European hallmarks on the clasp which indicates that this is plausibly of Austro-Hungarian Origin.

The piece bears striking resemblance to the since dismantled Collingwood Tiara Necklace, which was gifted by Queen Victoria to Queen Mary on her wedding day. There are few sketches and portraits of the Collingwood Tiara, as Queen Mary was known to have owned and loved many different Tiaras throughout her life. It was eventually reworked into what we now know as the Modern Fringe Tiara, which the British Royal Family still love to wear!

Object Condition

Excellent, Tarnishing on Silver commensurate with age.
