This diamond tiara and matching earrings by Cartier once belonged to Queen Alia, third wife of King Hussein of Jordan. After her tragic death, they passed onto her daughter Princess Haya who lent the jewels to her sister-in-law Rania during her first few years as Queen. Rania wore them at her husband's investiture, for official portraits and state visits.
The tiara and earrings have most recently been seen on Princess Haya, now married to Sheikh Muhammad of Dubai, who has worn them for official portraits.

Queen Frederika's Diamond Tiara- Originally given to Sophia of Prussia upon her marriage to Crown Prince Constantine of Greece (later King Constantine I), it is most associated with Queen Frederika of Greece, who received it as a wedding present from her husband Prince Paul (Sophia's son). The tiara's last public appearance was at the wedding of her son, King Constantine II to Princess Anne-Marie of Denmark. After Queen Frederika went into exile, she never wore the tiara again, and many people assumed the tiara had been sold. Therefore it was quite a surprise when Marie-Chantal, Crown Princess Pavlos, wore Queen Frederika's Diamond tiara to Queen Margrethe II's Ruby Jubilee Gala. It is unknown if the tiara currently belongs to Marie-Chantal, the royal family, or was on loan.
