Jewels: laurel tiara

On the occasion of her wedding to crown prince Philippe of Belgium in 1999, the "Association de la Noblesse du Royaume de Belgique" presented Mathilde d'Udekem d'Acoz with a unique gift: a diamond tiara in the shape of a wreath of laurel leafs.


The tiara had been purchased in Britain. It contains 631 diamonds and 56 rose cut diamonds.




The tiara was made in 1912, by London jewellers Hennell & Sons. Its previous owner was Mrs Helen May White.







The tiara can also be worn as a necklace.
