The Greville Tiara was made by Boucheron in 1919 and is set with emeralds and diamonds

Princess Eugenie’s stunning Peter Pilotto wedding gown was perfectly paired with the Greville tiara, a 1919 creation from Boucheron that was loaned to her by the Queen for her special day. Boucheron made the tiara for Margaret Greville, a British society host and philanthropist.

The central cabochon-cut emerald weighs just over 93 carats, with smaller emeralds on either side that most likely all came from Colombia. The rose-cut diamonds are pavé-set in platinum, with the bandeau-style tiara made in the traditional ‘kokoshnik’ Russian headdress design that was fashionable at the time.

The tiara has rarely been spotted in public – it was once photographed on Mrs Greville at a concert in 1937 – and has never been seen on Queen Elizabeth, who inherited it in 1942.

Princess Eugenie's decision not to wear a veil showed off the tiara to stunning effect, and was matched with a pair of emerald and diamond ear pendants that were a weddding gift from her now-husband, Jack Brooksbank.
