Re: Tiaras @ Chaumet
QEQM Greville Tiara was created by Cartier and modified by Chaumet !
Yes Beth, same is very very insightful. The tiara that you have mentioned is very profound and of very articulate design but yet the design goes way back over a century. One wonders how many tiaras are produced for sale on a yearly basis from this great house. I can recall that it was mentioned on here and another place that the late QEQM was a fervent patron of the jewel house Chaumet and may have commissioned a rumored all diamond tiara from this said house. Or was it Chaumet who had incorporated some loose diamonds the late QEQM had added to her all diamond Greville bequest tiara. I'm not sure I'm getting it right but I'm sure something to the aforementioned was relayed here previously.
Thanks Dave! I am sure we will all have an enjoyable time watching these videos.
In the first video we can see the tiara which will be lent for the bride to wear in the forthcoming Russian royal wedding.
My interest was captured by the third tiara in the first video, as I have never seen a tiara made in two sections before.
