Have you seen it?
Where would or could you wear it?
The Post Diamond Tiara made in the mid 19th century has 1,198 old mine and rose cut diamonds. The diamonds are set on tiny springs of gold and silver in a naturalistic motif of leaves and flowers. The beautiful example of wild roses is believed to have been made in France. There is one tiny diamond missing. How good is your eyesight?
Where can you see it…on display at the New Mexico Museum of Natural History and Science. The Museum hours are 9-5 with free admission on first Sundays with New Mexico residence ID, is at 1801 Mountain Road NW. The tiara is on loan from the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History’s traveling exhibit to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Albuquerque museum.
Lovers of Victorian era jewelry designs or people who fantasize or day dream about being royalty either in writing, or costuming will spend happy time in their preferred choice of “being in the moment” viewing this treasure.
