The first wearer of the tiara apparently was Grand Duchess Adelheid-Marie, the wife of Grand Duke Adolphe, Luxembourg’s first sovereign from the House of Nassau. The piece was created around 1870, probably in Germany.

After reigning for less than seven years, Marie-Adélaïde abdicated in favor of her younger sister, Charlotte, in 1919. She gave Charlotte her jewels, including the tiara, and Charlotte wore the piece frequently throughout her lifetime.
