The Daily Diadem: Queen Victoria's Regal Circlet


Queen Victoria of the United Kingdom wears her Regal Circlet in a portrait, ca.1850s. The circlet was made for her by Garrard; the diamonds were removed from the piece in the 1930s (to make the Queen Mother's new coronation crown), and its empty frame now resides in the Museum of London
