Instagram Snapshots – The Duchess of Roxburghe’s Cartier Tiara

Tiara

Thanks to Downton Abbey, tiaras are making a comeback in a very big way. Coincidentally, Sotheby’s Geneva Magnificent Jewels and Noble Jewels sale will be offering five dazzling tiaras, each made in the distinct style of the respective era they were worn. The most magnificent of these is a stunning diamond tiara made by Cartier in the 1930s from the Estate of Mary, Duchess of Roxburghe – granddaughter of Rothschild heiress Hannah and British Prime Minister the Earl of Rosebery.
