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.

Sophie debuted this dazzling diamond and aquamarine jewel in November 2005 during the enthronement festivities for Prince Albert II of Monaco.

Could a new kid on the block defeat an established winner?
