    The Oriental Circlet Tiara - The Oriental Circlet Tiara, also known as the Indian Ruby Tiara, was commissioned by Prince Albert the Prince Consort in 1853 as a gift to his wife, Queen Victoria. Knowing the provenance explains why it is also known as Queen Victoria’s Oriental Circlet Tiara. So many names! Anyhow, Prince Albert also designed the tiara and it is based on ‘Moghul’ arches surrounding lotus flowers.

Queen Victoria's tiara, though it said wedding tiara, I doubt it. She is wearing this tiara in the surrounding paintings.
