Diadem Ausstellung – Aristocratic Diademe

Lady Dianas Hochzeitstiara als Highlight der
 Jubilee-Tiara-Ausstellung bei Sotheby's

Im Rahmen der „Jubilee Season“, einem einmonatigen Programm mit Ausstellungen, Auktionen und Veranstaltungen zu Ehren der Regentschaft Ihrer Majestät, Königin Elisabeth, präsentiert Sotheby’s die größte Diadem-Ausstellung, die es seit 20 Jahren im Vereinigten Königreich gegeben hat – eine Hommage an eines der symbolträchtigsten Zeichen für den immerwährenden Stil der Monarchin: das Diadem.

In der Ausstellung werden rund 50 Diademe aristokratischer und königlicher Herkunft gezeigt, wobei einige Stücke zum ersten Mal öffentlich ausgestellt werden.

Nahezu alle Diademe der Ausstellung wurden für den britischen Adel angefertigt und befanden sich in dessen Besitz. Zusammen bieten sie einen schillernden und umfassenden Überblick über alle großen Stilrichtungen der Diademgestaltung anhand einiger der berühmtesten Vertreter dieses Genres. 

Eine Reihe von Diademen in der Ausstellung wurden bei der Krönung der Königin 1953 getragen, so z. B.

das Anglesey-Diadem, das vermutlich um 1890 angefertigt wurde,

Marchioness of Anglesey - Diamond Coronet Tiara Diadem

das Derby-Diadem, das ursprünglich 1893 für die Herzogin von Devonshire geschaffen wurde, und das

Westminster Halo-Diadem, das der Herzog von Westminster 1930 bei dem Pariser Juwelier Lacloche Frères für seine Braut Loelia Ponsonby in Auftrag gab.


Sie stellen eine unmittelbare und zugleich beeindruckende Verbindung zu den diesjährigen Jubiläumsfeierlichkeiten her.

Mit fast 50 Exponaten zeigt die Ausstellung die etabliertesten Designstile innerhalb des Genres der Diademe, darunter das napoleonische Empire, den romantischen Naturalismus, die Belle Epoque, das Art Déco sowie moderne und zeitgenössische Designs.

Die Spencer-Tiara

Zu den ganz besonderen Stücken der Ausstellung gehört die historische Spencer-Tiara, die eines der eindrucksvollsten Mitglieder der königlichen Familie in Vergangenheit und Gegenwart trug. Sie wurde ursprünglich 1767 angefertigt und innerhalb der Familie Spencer über Generationen weitergegeben. Vor etwas mehr als 40 Jahren wurde sie von Lady Diana getragen und erregte Aufsehen, als sie bei der mit Spannung erwarteten königlichen Hochzeit des vergangenen Jahrhunderts die St. Paul’s Cathedral betrat. Nun wird sie zum ersten Mal seit den 1960er Jahren wieder in London ausgestellt.

Das berühmte, girlandenartige Design besteht aus einem zentralen, mit Diamanten besetzten herzförmigen Motiv, das von fortlaufenden Schnecken flankiert wird, die von stern- und trompetenförmigen, ebenfalls mit Diamanten besetzten, in Silber und Gold gefassten Blüten unterbrochen werden. Das herzförmige Stück hatte für Lady Diana eine besondere Bedeutung, da ihre Großmutter, Lady Cynthia Hamilton, dieses 1919 als Hochzeitsgeschenk anlässlich ihrer Heirat mit „Jack“, Viscount Althorp, dem späteren 7. Earl Spencer, erhielt.

Wie bei Schmuckstücken dieser Art üblich, wurde das Spencer-Diadem im Verlauf von nahezu 200 Jahren immer wieder ergänzt und umgestaltet, bis der Kronjuwelier Garrard in den 1930er Jahren den Auftrag erhielt, das Diadem zu einem endgültigen Schmuckstück zu gestalten. Lady Diana war bekannt dafür, dass sie die Spencer-Tiara sehr mochte. Sie trug sie häufig anlässlich Galaveranstaltungen – zwischen 1983 und 1992 trug sie das schillernde Stück mindestens siebenmal zu besonderen Anlässen während königlicher Reisen und hochkarätigen Ereignissen innerhalb und außerhalb des Vereinigten Königreichs.

The Aristocratic Jewels exhibition will run at Sotheby’s London New Bond St from 28 May to 15 June

Platinum Jubilee 2022 – Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Diadem This spectacular piece of jewellery was worn by The Queen on her Coronation day @royalcollectiontrust

Magnificent jewels from Her Majesty The Queen’s personal collection will go on display this summer as part of special displays celebrating the Platinum Jubilee at Buckingham Palace, Windsor Castle and the Palace of Holyroodhouse in Edinburgh. Each display explores a historic occasion in Her Majesty’s 70-year reign – the Accession, the Coronation and previous Jubilees – through photographs, paintings, works of art, and items of The Queen’s dress and jewellery.

The Platinum Queen | Coronation Jubilee 2022 Queen Elizabeth II – @Royal Collection Trust

In the State Rooms at Buckingham Palace, which can be visited as part of the annual Summer Opening for the first time since 2019, official portraits of The Queen taken by photographer Dorothy Wilding just weeks after the Accession will be shown alongside items of jewellery worn for the portrait sittings. These include the Diamond Diadem, one of Her Majesty’s most widely recognised pieces of jewellery.

The Diamond Diadem was created for the famously extravagant coronation of George IV in 1821. It is set with 1,333 brilliant-cut diamonds and consists of a band with two rows of pearls either side of a row of diamonds, above which are diamonds set in the form of a rose, a thistle and two shamrocks, the national emblems of England, Scotland and Ireland. The Diadem was inherited in 1837 by Queen Victoria, who was frequently painted and photographed wearing it, including on several early postage stamps such as the Penny Black. The Diadem passed to Queen Alexandra, Queen Mary, Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother and then to Her Majesty The Queen, who wore it on the day of her Coronation and has worn it on her journey to and from the State Opening of Parliament since the first year of her reign.

The spectacular Delhi Durbar necklace will also be on display at Buckingham Palace. The necklace incorporates nine emeralds originally owned by Queen Mary’s grandmother, the Duchess of Cambridge, as well as an 8.8 carat diamond pendant cut from the Cullinan diamond – the largest diamond ever found. The necklace was made for Queen Mary as part of a suite of jewellery created for the Delhi Durbar in 1911. Her Majesty The Queen inherited the necklace in 1953 and wore it in a portrait sitting for Dorothy Wilding in 1956 – thought to have been their last sitting together before Wilding’s retirement in 1958.

At Windsor Castle, the Coronation Dress and Robe of Estate worn by The Queen for her Coronation at Westminster Abbey on 2 June 1953 will be displayed. To recognise the importance of her role as Head of the Commonwealth Nations, Her Majesty asked for the emblems of the seven independent states of which she was monarch to be incorporated into the design of her Coronation Dress, together with those of England, Scotland, Ireland and Wales. The emblems were embroidered in gold and silver thread and pastel-coloured silks, encrusted with seed pearls, sequins and crystals.

At the Palace of Holyroodhouse, visitors will see a display of outfits worn by Her Majesty on occasions to celebrate the Silver, Golden and Diamond Jubilees. In 1977 for The Queen’s Silver Jubilee, the royal couturier Sir Hardy Amies designed a striking ensemble of dress, coat and stole in pink silk crêpe and chiffon with a matching hat designed by Frederick Fox with flowerheads hanging from silk stems. The ensemble was worn at the National Service of Thanksgiving at St Paul’s Cathedral on 7 June 1977 marking the 25th anniversary of The Queen’s Accession.

On display for the first time will be Her Majesty’s Diamond Jubilee ensemble, worn to the National Service of Thanksgiving at St Paul’s Cathedral and a luncheon at Guildhall, City of London, as part of the celebrations on 5 June 2012. The ensemble was designed by Angela Kelly, Personal Adviser to The Queen (Wardrobe) and consists of a pale turquoise dress and coat embroidered with scattered silver flowers, with a coordinating hat.

Alongside the ensembles worn by The Queen will be a selection of gifts presented during official engagements in Scotland, as well as a group of works relating to Her Majesty’s first official visit to Edinburgh in 1953, soon after her Coronation. Examples include a silver model of a miner’s Davy lamp, presented in 1958 when The Queen made her first descent into a working coal mine on the opening of the Rothes Colliery in Fife, and the ceremonial key to the Palace of Holyroodhouse, which is presented to Her Majesty at the start of Royal Week at the Palace each summer. @RCT
