Composed of nearly 200 carats of diamonds, this majestic tiara was given to Queen Victoria's granddaughter Princess Louise as a wedding gift from her husband in 1889. It features hundreds of exquisite diamonds ranging from one to ten carats, including a set of beautiful pear-shaped diamonds set on tiny pivots which would have dazzled onlookers when worn. See the Fife tiara as part of Victoria Revealed at Kensington Palace from 30 March. Book now: https://goo.gl/afqfzt

Did you imaging how many food plates this tiara can buy for he hungry children of the world but for those dirty royals did not care about it. Only princess Diana cared but that is why she was killed because people loved and will continue to love her no matter how many dirty things they say about her.

Why in the world everything is beautiful UK 🇬🇧 I did not find it intricate butMost brilliantly designed

I don't understand why some tiaras or jewels end up in a museum or are never worn again. Wouldn't that tiara serve it's purpose better on the head of today's members of the royal family?

The queen of the United Kingdom Canada, Australia blah blah and 30 odd other nations owns nothing by the way, The state owns all her crowns and tiaras, all palaces and royal houses. Just random fact.

I have studied this tiara for years and thought that it was in private hands. Where has it been and is it still in the Fife family? Would love to see it presented on something less colorful than red. Am speechless that I just happened to find your wonderful mini lesson on my very favorite tiara.

Well, Johan Ottosson, it looks very much like the tiara that is worn by Queen Elizabeth as depicted on Australian coins!
Ludmila Kotovski (18 days ago)
This is the tiara that was stolen by an Englishman, disguised as a woman, from a Russian nobleman's palace during the Russian Revolution in 1918 and presented to the English Royal Family! The tiara may have even been designed by Fabergé...

Ludmila Kotovski The british Princess Louise received it as a weddinggift when she married the Earl of Fife in 1889. It is probably made in Paris by Oscar Massin. It seems unlikely it was in Russia in 1918???

Prince Harry will see to it his new princess wears whatever tiara she would like to. Meghan has them all on her side...so we shall see.
Theresa Malim (16 days ago)
Kitty Watson she can't wear that that kind of tiara is meaningful from past did you see Kate wear that princess Diana didn't wear also that tiara markle fans getting crazy already
B. Walker (19 days ago)
This has to be the most brilliant constructed tiara I have ever seen. The sheer size of the pendants alone...but the fact they swivel and dangle making the light dance with movement is extraordinary. Truly a masterpiece. : )

Classic perfection.

Wow there you go Meghan that would be my pick
One MercilessMing (19 days ago)
gayle hunter--You're welcome. Enjoy.
gayle hunter (19 days ago)
One MercilessMing thank you so much I will
One MercilessMing (19 days ago)
gayle hunter--I still recommend that you read "The Necklace" by Guy de Maupassant. It's worth reading.
gayle hunter (19 days ago)
One MercilessMing that would be sad but it sure is gorgeous
One MercilessMing (19 days ago)
gayle hunter--It could be your desire to wear it. If you're willing to wallow through the mass of paperwork--not to mention be able to afford the insurance on the bloody thing--you might get the chance. Maybe. Before you do, though, I recommend you read Guy de Maupassant's short story, "The Necklace". The Fife tiara is now in the possession of the Arts Council of England and is being transferred to public ownership. In other words, the Duke of Fife can't afford to keep it, either. Watch it one day disappear into the mass of jewels owned by the crown. http://www.eastoftheweb.com/short-stories/UBooks/Neck.shtml

Is it true that it can never be worn again?
MaggyShannon (20 days ago)
Anthony Guilfoyle (21 days ago)
Last time i saw pictures of it being worn was for the 1987 wedding of the current Duke of Fife to Caroline Bunting. Suited her perfectly
Jack R (22 days ago)
Why would that be so? Perhaps there is a clause that states the Fife family can use it should they wish?
