      The Fife Tiara - One of the most stunning tiaras in the collections of the extended British royal family, the Fife tiara was given to Princess Louise, the daughter of King Edward VII and Queen Alexandra, as a wedding gift in 1889. Louise's new husband had inherited the Fife earldom when his father died; but that title wasn't quite lofty enough for a granddaughter of the monarch, so Queen Victoria made him the Duke of Fife just before the wedding. The tiara was a gift from the newly-elevated duke to his bride. It seems extremely likely that the tiara was constructed based on a design by Oscar Massin, who had exhibited a very similar piece at the Exposition Universelle in Paris in 1878. Massin didn't generally produce his tiara designs himself; instead, he partnered with other jewelry firms who executed the pieces he'd created. However, the maker of this tiara has never been positively identified. A special issue of The Graphic, published in August 1889 to celebrate the Fife wedding, describes the tiara as follows: "in a very uncommon and beautiful design, composed of hundreds of stones, ranging in weight from one carat to ten, the larger being what are technically known as briolettes -- that is cut on both sides and turning on pivots so that they will flash with every movement of the head". Another contemporary news report describes the tiara given by the duke as "a mass of diamonds, and one of the most valuable pieces of work in England". The Duke of Fife's title, like most in the United Kingdom, was originally designed to pass only to sons. However, Louise's only son was stillborn. Queen Victoria intervened once more, reissuing the Fife dukedom and making it possible for Louise's daughters to inherit their father's title. In due course, Louise's elder daughter, Lady Alexandra, inherited both the Fife dukedom and the Fife tiara. She wore the Fife tiara at the coronations of King George VI in 1937 and Queen Elizabeth II in 1953.
