It consists of 2,500 cushion-shaped, single-cut, circular-cut and rose-cut diamonds, set in a gold and silver frame. The en-tremblant diamond wings were constructed using wire-coiled springs, making them slightly move when worn. The Valkyrie Tiara was inspired by the female figure of Norse myth.

Tiara of the Month: The Valkyrie Tiara, on display at the V&A Dundee from May
Inspired by the female figure of Norse myth, these elegant, winged-tiaras enjoyed a vogue in the late 19th century, with this example once owned by the first (and last) Marquess of Crewe

The BBC has previously released an article in 2017 ahead of Valkyrie Tiara's first display in public at the same Dundee's V&A Museum in 2018.

Cartier tiara to go on public display for first time at V&A Dundee
A diamond-winged Cartier tiara commissioned by the Duchess of Roxburghe will be displayed at Dundee's V&A Museum of Design next year.

This is the first time I saw the Valkyrie Tiara and it's definitely one of the most, if not the most unique tiara that I have ever seen.
Its certainly unique
