Previous pinner: Queen Anne Boleyn's Crown. Me: I have serious doubts that this tiara dates back to the 16th century. Maybe it's from the HBO series, "The Tudors", and THAT'S the Anne Boleyn they're talking about. All I can find on this tiara is a Pinterest label, which is pretty meaningless. It's a pretty piece of jewelry, and I like it, so it's going here for now.
This tiara was once owned by Princess Fatma, the daughter of the Khedive Ismail. She helped found Cairo University in 1908. It is a platinum tiara (comes with matching earrings), set with 2,159 diamonds and flawless white pearls. It was originally commissioned from a Paris jeweler for Princess Shwikar, wife of King Fouad. The set was later passed down to Queen Farida, King Farouk’s first wife.
