Our week of March birthday tributes wraps up today with a spectacular tiara appearance from one of the Queen’s granddaughters. Here’s a closer look at Princess Eugenie’s incredible royal wedding tiara.
Princess Eugenie married her longtime boyfriend, Jack Brooksbank, in a grand ceremony at St. George’s Chapel, Windsor in October 2018.
For the ceremony, Eugenie wore a wedding gown fit for a princess. The dress was made by Peter Pilotto and Christopher de Vos. The Royal Collection explained that the gown featured “a neckline which folds around the shoulders and a flowing full-length train.”
With the classic dress, Eugenie wore sentimental pieces of jewelry set with diamonds and emeralds.
The Queen loaned a very special tiara to Eugenie for the day. The Greville Emerald Kokoshnik is part of the enormous jewelry bequest left to the Queen Mother by Dame Margaret Greville in the 1940s. This classic diamond, emerald, and platinum tiara was made for Mrs. Greville by Boucheron (in either 1919 or 1921, depending on who you ask). Though the tiara has been in royal hands since 1942, Princess Eugenie was the first member of the royal family to wear the jewel in public.
The princess’s wedding ensemble was completed with a pair of modern diamond and cabochon emerald earrings. The earrings were a gift from her new husband.
