That’s right, Downton Abbey fans. Lady Mary’s ACTUAL wedding tiara is now available to hire.
The sparkly headwear which adorned the eldest Crawley sister’s very own curls can sit on your head for just £1,250 a day. Oh, and a £125,000 deposit…
The Georgian 45-carat diamond tiara, worn by Downton actress Michelle Dockery for Mary’s wedding to her beloved Matthew Crawley, is being rented out by London-based luxury jeweller Bentley & Skinner.
So if you can afford the hefty deposit, the piece, described as a “tiara in the form of a garland spray of leaves and floral clusters”, could be a part of your very own wedding.
Everyone knows brides need something borrowed on their big day – and there’s no easier way to feel like a princess than balancing thousands of pounds worth of diamonds on your head, now, is there? Just make sure you don’t accidentally utter Matthew’s name when it comes to the ‘I do’ part…
