The Oriental tiara

1853 - 1902

RCIN 200174

Prince Albert took a leading role in the design of the Queen’s jewellery and the oriental inspiration of this tiara, originally set with opals – the Prince’s favourite stones – may have been influenced by the Queen’s acquisition of the Lahore jewels in 1850–51.

Made for Queen Victoria
