The royal family has no shortage of exquisite jewels. Due in part to the reach of the British Empire, monarchs have amassed caches of gemstones from around the world, along with other treasures. Some are placed in ceremonial objects like the Crown Jewels; others are worked into more wearable accessories. Tiaras may not be daily adornments for the princesses and duchesses of the various noble houses of England, but few objects are more intimately associated with royalty.

From Princess Diana's family heirloom to a treasured piece worn by Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, here are some of the royal family's most memorable - and beautiful - tiaras.

    The Cambridge Lover's Knot Tiara is most famous for being a favorite piece of Diana, Princess of Wales; however, Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, frequently wears it these days. Queen Mary commissioned the pearl-and-diamond piece in 1914, basing it on an earlier tiara.

    The Grand Duchess Vladimir Tiara

    The Duchess Vladimir commissioned this diamond tiara as part of her dazzling collection of jewels. When the revolution began, she fled Russia, leaving her treasures behind. However, pieces including the tiara were smuggled out, and she eventually sold it to Queen Mary.

    The tiara can be fitted with pearls or emeralds, or worn without accent gems.

    When the future Queen Mother got married in 1923, the Persian Turquoise Tiara was among her wedding gifts. Also known as the "Triumph of Love" tiara, the piece was commissioned by Queen Mary, though she was never photographed wearing it.
