Regal Edwardian Silver and Paste Tiara

This breathtaking antique tiara is so beautifully made it could pass as fine jewelry instead of paste. Garlands drape from a pediment of classic Greek keys and surround a central ruby paste with a gilt silver collet. The delicacy of the design is exquisite with thin knife wires supporting the swags and central stones. The garlands are three dimensional and slightly raised above the surrounding curved forms.

The paste stones are set in 900 silver using bead-set settings for most of the stones and collet settings for the central row of stones. There are rings on each end of the tiara for pinning it to the hair or for tying on a ribbon.

The tiara would be beautiful for a bride, worn to a fancy dress ball, as an addition to a collection or for doing housework (everything is more fun wearing a tiara, try it some time!).

Age: circa 1900-1920

Marks: "900". There is a makers mark on one of the tie rings and two matching hallmarks on the underside but they are so small I couldn't get a good photo of them. This tiara was purchased in London and likely European.

Size: 2-1/2" rise at the center. 4-3/4" ring to ring along a straight line, 6-1/2" ring to ring circumference.

Condition: Very good vintage condition. There appears to be a few small stones that have been replaced. There is one thin spot along the perimeter that is slightly kinked and which had a split in the silver when I purchased it. I had a jeweler laser solder this spot to reinforce it.
