Yes, it was said that the Fringe tiara was made using diamonds taken from the necklace/tiara Queen Mary received as a wedding gift from Queen Victoria.

The diamond necklace is of a modern design and HM has worn it quite often since at least 2004.
The provenance of the necklace remains unknown.

Wonderful to see Her Majesty wearing the waterfall brooch this evening, but I can't quite make out which earrings she is wearing - they just don't look like the pair which match her necklace!

Any jewels accepted by The Sovereign are considered to be on behalf of the Crown to be worn in right of it. These gifts are tax-free provided the jewels remain with the Royal Collection.

The other members of the royal family are required to pay a gift tax if they keep the jewels as their personal property. Presumbly, The Queen pays this tax on their behalf since it could be considerable depending on the value of the jewels.

I know Diana returned the Cambridge tiara to the queen but,does anyone know the last time the queen wore that tiara?It seems like a long time since she wore that.

Diana retained the Lover's Knot Tiara and her other royal jewels after the divorce. The jewels were hers to keep for her lifetime, but could never be sold or lent. After her death, the pieces were returned to The Queen.

The Queen wore the Lover's Knot Tiara early in her reign (it was a bequest from Queen Mary under her Will) but then it disappeared into the vaults.

AFAIK, I've never seen it worn after Diana but hope to see its reappearance on some royal lady's head in the near future.

I fully expect to see that one on the Duchess of Cambridge at some point. It makes sense in every way for her to be the one to wear that tiara :)

It's unique,grand,whimsical and stunning.

I much prefer this tiara with the pearls,even though the emeralds are gorgeous too!

This tiara is breathtaking! Too many words to describe it....it's grand,magical,regal,unforgetable,fairly tale like and classic.It has all the elements of a beautiful and perfect tiara.

It is truly a magnificent tiara!

I saw this on the Sartorial Splendor site and was waiting for you to post this tiara, IloveCP! Of course, it's the most appropriate and logical choice for the #1 slot and I'm so glad to see it as the most favorite. I can't enhance on your description of the GGBI, and it's great that the bandeau base was restored to the tiara which gives it the height I so love.
