The Cambridge Lover's Knot Tiara

The Cambridge Lover's Knot Tiara
This tiara was created for Queen Mary (it's also called Queen Mary's Lover's Knot Tiara) and inherited by the present Queen. She wore it earlier in her reign before loaning it to Diana, Princess of Wales. The tiara is now back in the Queen's vault, though it is currently unworn.
