This balanced, classic tiara is the overall number one seed in our tournament. Given by a committee of women to Queen Mary as a wedding present in 1893, the diamond tiara has a rich history as well as a beautiful design, making it a perennial favorite for tiara lovers.

This diamond honeysuckle tiara, which can be worn with a set of interchangeable center stones, was commissioned by Queen Mary in 1914. She gave the tiara to her daughter-in-law, Princess Alice, Duchess of Gloucester, as a wedding present in 1935. Today, it's worn by Alice's daughter-in-law, the present Duchess of Gloucester.
