This majestic, unique and beautiful cameo tiara was worn by Princess
Birgitta of Sweden on the occassion of her civil wedding with Prince
Hans-Georg of Hohenzollern in 1961, Stockholm. The
Church-wedding was at Sigmaringen 30 May 1961.
Originaly owned by the French Empress Josephine, it was inherited by
her granddaughter Queen Josephine, born princess of Leuchtenberg. Then
it went to her daughter princess Eugenie, who left it to her nephew,
prince Eugen. He gave it as a wedding gift to princess Sybilla of Saksen-Coburg-Gotha,
when she married Crownprince Gustav Adolf in 1932, the mother of Princess
Her mother in law, Crownprincess Margaret has also been seen wearing
The color of this historical bridal tiara is very special; it's white:
it consists of pearls, heightened with 7 cameo's who depict mythological
figures. In the centre there's the crowning of love (mother and child),
to where portrait-cameos of a man and a woman aim their sight. On the
backside portrait-cameo's are interchanged with a godess who has a putti
on her lap (caretaker) and a man with a staff (guard). Amongst the Polish
and British aristocracy there is a smaller diadem and a necklace with
exact the same cameos, which leads to the suspection that all these
parts have been a parure. This fine piece was made by Biennais, the
parisan Court Jeweller of Napoleon, who was the predecessor of Chaumet.
