Here’s some more pictures and info about the French Jet Fringe Tiara since people like it so much. I agree completely with people who commented that it’s the perfect tiara for an evil queen.
These pictures are from when it was sold at Tennants Auction House but they don’t keep their past lots on the website so I don’t know the exact details.
I think it’s the same tiara that is worn here by Emmeline de Rutzen Newnes, Lady Newnes (1873-1939). The caption for the photo on Alamy says that it’s from the Devonshire House Ball in 1897 but I don’t think that’s correct. The pictures are from 1913 at the earliest because I can see a wedding ring on her far hand.

It’s like @tiaramania is creating these latest posts just for me: tiaras made of iron? Check. Jet black tiaras? Check.
During the Victorian Era when mourning jewelry was very popular black glass was used as an alternative to jet. Even though the glass itself was primarily made in Bohemia it became known as French Jet.

“I think Meghan Markle wanted tiara pics to use in her issue of British Vogue which is why she wanted access to the tiaras before the wedding. Diana’s famous portraits with the Lover’s Knot tiara is probably what she was aiming for.” - Submitted by Anonymous
