Floral Aigrette Tiara - (Denmark)

This tiara has a floral motif and is from the nineteenth century. This is one of the more versatile tiaras because it comes in three separate pieces. Each can be worn on its own or all together mounted on the frame of the tiara. This allows the tiara wearer some functionality in how they would like to wear the tiara. The individual pieces can also be worn as a brooch. 

The origins of the tiara are somewhat of a mystery. The piece is believed to have originally belonged to Grand Duchess Anastasia Mikhailovna of Russia in the later 1800’s. It later was supposedly given as a gift to Queen Ingrid from a Danish-American in the 1960s. Though Queen Margrethe has been quoted saying this piece was bought by her father King Frederik IX for her mother Queen Ingrid.
