The stunning diamond drop Faberge tiara of Queen Maria Jose of Italy.
Royal Jewellery - Queen Ingrid’s Star and Pearl TiaraThe name of this stunning tiara is somewhat misleading as to its origins, because originally, the Stars and Pearls Tiara belonged to Sofia of Nassau, the Queen Consort of King Oscar II of Sweden, who received it from her brother, Prince Adolphe, Grand Duke of Nassau, as a wedding gift upon her marriage. The tiara is believed to have been made in the 1850s by unknown craftsmen and consist of diamond-encrusted star and pearl pendants, which - contrary to other tiaras of its kind - cannot be removed. The tiara currently is in the possession of Princess Benedikte of Denmark, she received it from her mother, Queen Ingrid. Originally a Swedish Princess, Ingrid had inherited it from her grandmother, Victoria of Baden, who had specified in her will that her only granddaughter should inherit it. Victoria of Baden was Sofia of Nassau’s daughter-in-law and the tiara’s current owner, Princess Benedikte, therefore is the original owner’s great-great-great-granddaughter.
