Item # Fringe Tiara
Stunning replica of the diamond fringe tiara that belonged to King George III.
History: Queen Victoria wore it as a tiara on an official visit to the opera in 1839. It was inherited by Queen Mary when she became Queen Consort in 1910, and she in turn gave it to her daughter in law, the new Queen in 1937, Queen Elizabeth.
The Queen mother loaned it to her daughter Princess Elizabeth as “something borrowed” for her wedding in 1947. The queen mother loaned it again to her granddaughter, Princess Anne in 1973 for her marriage to Captain Mark Phillips.
Our replica tiara is made as near as possible to the original piece. It has been finished in silver plating and is 1 1/2 inches tall.
The very last photo below shows the original Fringe Tiara. The bottom band is lined with gold velvet to protect the wearer's head. The original needed this extra padding because it was very heavy and made of real silver and embellished with hundreds of real diamonds.
