Tiaras of Norwegian Royals at Royal Wedding- Crown Princess Mette- Marit
Well this one has quite a story. This is Queen Maud’s Pearl Tiara and it was given to Queen Maud by her parents (King Edward VII & Queen Alexandra ) when she married the future King Haakon VII of Norway in 1896. This tiara is a convertable one. Large front piece can be moved. However it's not the real thing. The original pearl tiara was stolen in 1993 when it was cleaned in Garrards in London and can't be found since. Garrard who was made the original one, created a replica of the tiara. This is the replica with all real stones as original which family wearing.
