This charming diamond and pearl tiara, made in the 1920s, originally belonged to the Queen Mother. It later became one of Princess Margaret's signature pieces, and now it's worn by the Duchess of Cambridge. Its delicate design and gorgeous Egyptian-inspired motifs make it a major contender for a title.

This delicate diamond festoon tiara was given to the Princess Royal in 1973 when she christened a ship. (Not a bad thank-you present!) It's intricate and pretty, which made it a perfect wedding tiara for Anne's daughter-in-law in 2008.

Look for our next tiara match-up tomorrow morning!
