The Meander Tiara was the best selection Zara Phillips could have made to accompany her elegant Stewart Parvin wedding dress today.
The Meander Tiara is a crown that her mother Princess Anne wore many times. It has a strong modern feel and clean lines. It lays low on the head and although encrusted with many diamonds set in platinun, it has a rather understated look.
The design features a center brilliant cut stone and a ‘Greek Key’ motif. The central diamond is flanked with a wreath detail.
The Queen gifted the tiara to Princess Anne in the early 1970s. Princess Anne wore the tiara many times including on her 50th birthday. The Queen who originally had the tiara, never wore it in public. The Queen alway seems to opt for very ornate pieces.
The public was surely excited to see the tiara. The inclusion of the sparkling jewel added to the fairytale quality of the royal wedding.
Zara wore a silk cathedral length veil to accent the tiara. She selected designer Stewart Parvin to design the silk faille and duchess satin gown. Her shoes were designed by Jimmy Choo. What a glorious look.
