Classic design? Check! Multiple settings? Check! Incredible backstory? Definitely check! The Vlad's a top seed in this tournament for a reason -- it checks all the boxes! The Queen's been wearing it since 1953, and it's rightfully become one of her signature pieces.

This diamond and pearl sparkler, a replica of another famous lover's knot tiara, was commissioned by Queen Mary in 1913. It's since been worn by three more royal women: the present Queen, Diana, Princess of Wales, and the Duchess of Cambridge. It's a royal tiara that has reached icon status.

Stay tuned for more sparkle today -- and another Tiara Tournament post tomorrow morning!
