    The Spencer Honeysuckle Tiara ~ The Honeysuckle Tiara is a largely unknown piece that has belonged to the Spencer Family since 19th century. While not quite as famous as the Spencer Tiara, it's still an impressive jewel. And to think that the Royal Family called Diana "the commoner"! Commoner indeed! (Unlike Kate Middleton who truly is a commoner and nouveau riche!

Wife of the 5th Earl Spencer in 1885 & the grandmother of Princess Diana, was capped with the crown at the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II.

The Spencer Tiara Used by Lady Diana Spencer on the day of her wedding to Prince Charles in 1981, the Spencer Tiara is made of gold and entirely covered in diamonds. Thought to be a Spencer family heirloom, the tiara has gone through many changes since its first recorded appearance in 1875, when a single element of the tiara was left to Lady Sarah Spencer. Since then, the tiara has been remounted and four other elements added to it, creating what we now know as the Spencer Tiara today.
