The Spencer Tiara: Though this piece was once said to date from the 18th century, it actually seems to be a combination of pieces of varying ages and from different jewelers that has gone through several changes over time. The center element was a wedding gift from Lady Sarah Spencer to Cynthia, Viscountess Althorp (Diana’s grandmother), in 1919. This piece was remounted by the Goldsmiths & Silversmiths Co. and Garrard was asked to create four matching pieces in 1937 to add on.
