Downton Abbey Wedding Tiara Made By Bentley & Skinner

18 Sep 2012

Hurrah! Downton Abbey returned to our screens for another series on Sunday, and we couldn't be more pleased to see Lady Mary and Matthew Crawley finally get married.

Besides the men looking dapper in their morning coats, Lady Mary's dress was stunning and we loved that she could glide so easily down the stairs at Downton - no poufy meringue for this 1920s bride!


Topping off her gorgeous wedding day look was a beautiful diamond-encrusted tiara in the shape of a garland of leaves with little floral buds, created especially for the on-screen wedding by royal jewellers Bentley & Skinner. Working in collaboration with the Downton team, Bentley & Skinner artisans altered the dazzling, 45-carat important Georgian tiara, which was set in white gold, yellow gold and silver.


While the stunning piece is available to buy (it also becomes a brooch and headband), the whopping £125,000 price tag might be a little out of most brides' price range! However, we say do take inspiration from Downton and revisit the idea of a bridal tiara (see our favourite headpieces here) - you don't have to look like a Disney princess, but you almost certainly will look like a Lady.
