In 1937 Cartier's London house created 27 tiaras, including this citrine and diamond tiara, many of which were worn at the coronation of George VI. This tiara is typical of the era in the style of settings and use of coloured stones together with diamonds. The central element can be dismounted and worn as a brooch.
