Stunning Victorian Old-Cut Diamond Fringe Tiara Convertible to Necklace Bracelet

About the Item

A stunning antique diamond tiara convertible to a necklace, c.1880s, the tiara designed as a relatively short compact fringe which almost gives the impression of a bandeau style tiara, it has a gently tapered form and is composed of twenty-three knife edge bars each applied with a curved V-shape diamond-set motif and surmounted by an old cut diamond in claw setting, these are interspersed with shorter bars topped with graduated old cut diamonds and all are set above a base row of diamonds with alternate stones embellished further by a bezel set rose cut diamond above and below, all set in silver and gold and attached to a tiara frame. When removed from the frame and joined to the diamond set back chain, the tiara transforms into a wonderful statement necklace. The back chain is fully set with rose cut diamonds and can also be worn as a bracelet, cleverly it features a small removable section to make it longer or shorter as desired. At approximately 32cts this tiara carries a substantial diamond weight and the old cut stones are beautifully bright and lively, the metal settings have been kept to a minimum so the effect is a concentrated band of diamonds around the head which creates a fabulous impact and has a huge amount of sparkle. As a necklace the piece is equally splendid and impactful, the graduated fringe forming a triple row bib of diamonds that lay around the base of the throat catching the light and reflecting it up to the wearers face. The bracelet design perfectly echoes the base row of diamonds on the tiara and can obviously be worn both with and without the tiara. On its own, it is a very pretty antique diamond bracelet that could easily be worn casually and therefore frequently. This wonderful jewel is three beautiful pieces of diamond jewellery in one and it is ready to be worn and enjoyed for many more years to come. It is the perfect family heirloom tiara, loved now and for generations to come.
