The glittering spires of the FRINGE Tiara create a truly stunning and sophisticated piece with an adjustable circlet-style back to anchor it. The back can be hidden under the hair, if desired. The original Fringe tiara was designed along the lines of a Russian kokoshnik tiara, popular at the time of Queen Mary, grandmother of Queen Elizabeth.

Queen Mary’s Fringe Tiara was made by E. Wolff & Co. for Garrard & Co. in 1919 and includes 47 diamond bars separated by smaller diamond spikes. In 1936, Queen Mary gave her fringe tiara to Queen Elizabeth, who wore it regularly during George VI’s reign. Queen Elizabeth loaned the tiara to her daughter, Princess Elizabeth (now, of course, Queen Elizabeth II), to wear when she married Lieutenant Philip Mountbatten on November 20, 1947.
