The fringe tiara is a classic of the Victorian period and this is a lovely delicate design and a very wearable example, its convertible nature making it a more versatile and useful jewel. Whilst the tiara would be worn for more formal occasions, the necklace could be worn more informally and therefore more frequently. The tiara is comfortable to wear as it is relatively light, the open airy style creating visual impact without weight. As a necklace it sits around the base of the throat and the articulation in the piece allows it some movement and to fit nicely. The diamonds catch the light beautifully with a subtle sparkle and the overall effect is elegant and refined, whichever way it is worn.
