Tiaras Sold By Christies

I found this on a Christies site, and it is the original Lovers Knot from Augusta of Cambridge. Sold in 1981. It's stunning. I rather like it more than the copy cat

My favorite of these two pictures is the blue back ground as it makes it POP!

I like the tiara design so much more with the pearls on either side of the knot- it makes the tiara's design inspiration so much more clear.

I agree. Love the blue background. The lower row of pearls look different on the two images, larger on the white background.

This tiara is beautiful but I don't like the shape.

Yes I love this one more than QMLK too, it emphasizes the pearls. I always thought the QMLK is like "oh we have some pearls so put them there and let them swing".

Very nice, a little art deco-ish.
