  • Give a royal wave to this tiara replica, The Empress Eugénie Pearl Tiara. Like so many, this tiara was originally a wedding gift from Emperor Napolean III to his wife Eugénie. 

    Made by Alexandre-Gabriel Lemonnier, from stones once owned by Empress Marie Louise (the second wife of Napoleon Bonaparte), and the Duchess of Angoulême (the daughter of Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette) this tiara was an eyeful. 

    The original tiara had more than two hundred pearls and two thousand diamonds. Talk about a statement piece! Empress Eugenie was quite fond of this piece and even work it during a state visit to Windsor Castle in 1855. 

    Fun fact: Her portrait was painted by Winterhalter on more than one occasion as depicted here.
