One large, brilliant-cut crystal sits in the middle of the bright, wild-rose tiara, and radiates sparkle just like a diamond. Every surface on the art-deco MARIPOSA is carefully inlaid with Austrian crystals creating a dazzling glow. Light dances off the jewels! The supporting band at the bottom of the tiara adds greater dimension with brilliant-cut matching crystals. It’s easy to see why the Queen Mother adored this piece.
