Historic Edwardian Prussian Royal Jeweler Diamond Platinum Convertible Tiara

About

A rare and important Edwardian diamond platinum tiara convertible to a choker or brooch, in the original fitted case with all components present. Made by the Imperial German Court Jeweler Friedlander Berlin circa 1905, who supplied many European royal and aristocratic families before 1914. During the period 1887 to 1914, Friedlander made exquisite jewels for many important royal occasions such as King Edward VII’s coronation in 1902, Crown Prince William's wedding in 1905 and Princess Victoria Louise of Prussia’s wedding in 1913. The tiara is designed in the favored Cartier and Faberge "Garland" style inspired by the Louis VXI period. The use of the finest platinum in the setting causes the diamonds to seem to float in air and to resemble antique lace. The looped sections of the tiara, which can be worn as a choker-Collier de Chien, rest on a removable deep diamond set base which, when worn as a tiara, makes the tiara sit high up. This was necessary at the time, as hairstyles were very full. This is a particular Friedlander invention and style, and demonstrates ingenuity and practicality in German design. Few examples such as this superb tiara exist today outside of royal collections. The tiara is set with approximately 42 carats of diamonds mounted in platinum. Please inquire for further details.
