Guys, this is really exciting. I’m really excited.
I was obsessed with the headpiece Lady Mary wore in her wedding to marry Matthew (RIP, MATTHEW) last season on Downton Abbey before the wedding even aired, when just spoiler photos were making their way around the Internets, and now, now, the actual headpiece she wore is now available for any non-Lady lady to wear to her wedding!
Glamour informs us that Bentley & Skinner, the British jeweler who made the gorgeous headpiece, has decided to make it available for rent, for the bargain price of about $2,000 per day (the piece itself is valued at about $200,000). Here are the stats on the piece, via the jeweler:
An Important Georgian diamond tiara, the tiara in the form of a garland spray of leaves and floral clusters, pave-set throughout with old-cut diamonds, weighing an estimated total of 45 carats, cutdown collet-set in silver to a yellow gold mount, convertible to two brooches, gross weight 75.5 grams on frame, circa 1800.
It’s just beyond.
So what do you think? Does this news make anyone pause for a second and actually consider if you can swing it?
