Oh, what we wouldn't do to open the Buckingham palace vault and gaze upon the iconic royal tiaras in person. After all, we've been fascinated with the royal family's diadems throughout the years. It was hard not to fall in love with Princess Diana in her statement-making gown and Spencer tiara on her wedding day. And we can't imagine Queen Elizabeth II without her magnificent Girls of Great Britain and Ireland tiara. It gets us excited to see what Meghan Markle and Princess Eugenie will wear at their royal weddings!
And these headpieces aren't just wonderful to look at. Within those clusters of diamonds, rubies, and emeralds are multitudes of history, and as the crowns are passed down from generation to generation they become a token of familial love. Of course, some are combinations of jewels repurposed by the court jeweler firm, Garrard — they call it the Queen's craft project.
Though we may never actually be able to get a real-life sneak peek at the Royals' crown collection, we at least have photos. Feast your eyes on their glistening headwear and hear all about each tiara's amazing legacy below.
