18th Century Diamond Tiara
“This was a stunning tiara brought in by a very special client. It had spent many years in its original leather box and my brief was to repair the tiara in time for her nephew’s wedding. This family heirloom was 18k yellow gold with a top layer of silver that was typical of the style of the day. I hunted down and replaced the missing old cut diamonds, cleaned and polished the tiara and made a new headband style setting. This really was a labour of love. The bride came into the shop to be shown how to fit and wear the tiara. I later heard that the tiara and the wedding were a great success.” - India Mahon.
