Sotheby's Royal and Aristocratic Tiaras

Exhibition Sotheby's

A showcase of dazzling noble and aristocratic jewelled tiaras with British and European royal provenance will be a highlight of Sotheby's Jubilee season. 

Each stunning tiara on view follows the evolution in designs prompted by monarchic taste, societal and economic shifts and influence from other art forms. This is best demonstrated in a diamond tiara from the 1830s, designed as a wreath of diamond-set leaves in homage to the classical designs of ancient Rome. Meanwhile, an exquisite turquoise cabochon and diamond tiara by Van Cleef & Arpels, crafted in the 1960s is breathtakingly beautiful.
