The Vladimir Tiara (with the Cambridge emerald drops) is displayed in profile view at Buckingham Palace, July 2006. The tiara was purchased from the family of the late Grand Duchess Vladimir by Queen Mary; today is the 150th anniversary of Queen Mary's birth, and this post kicks off a long weekend of celebrations of her jewels here at The Court Jeweller. Stay tuned for posts on the Grand Magpie's jewels on Saturday, Sunday, and Monday!
