Queen Fawzia of Iran and Princess of Egypt. In 1939, H.R.H Princess Fawzia - the daughter of H.M King Fuad and H.M Queen Nazli of Egypt - married the future Shah of Iran, Reza Pahlavi. For this grand occasion, Van Cleef & Arpels was commissioned to create a diamond and platinum jewelry set comprising of a necklace, a pair of earclips, and a tiara.
This is Princess Fawzia’s Tiara. Her parents, King Fuad I of Egypt and Queen Nazli, commissioned it from Van Cleef & Arpels for Fawzia’s 1939 wedding to Mohammad Reza Pahlavi, the Crown Prince (and later Shah) of Iran. The tiara features pear-shaped and baguette-cut diamonds in multiple rows arranged to look like a halo. See a new tiara every Tuesday on http://JenniWiltz.com/blog. #tiaratuesday
