A pretty tiara for Miss Darcy!  Georgian tiara from the early 19th century. It is made of gold plated brass and has classical motifs. On the lower part it has 61 small pearls and on the top it has 17 pear shaped pearls that each measure (approximately) 1 cm in height. This type of jewel is typical of the late Georgian and First Napoleonic Empire period.  During this time in the early 19th century, a Neoclasical style was in vogue, and both fashion and jewellery imitated Classical Antiquity.

Items Which May Have Been Found on a Georgian Lady’s Dressing Table  These items are nearly all in the collection of Number 1 Royal Crescent Museum in Bath. A fan depicting a map of Bath, a pair of rare Bilston Enamel Candlesticks circa 1780 and silver tweezers in a red leather case are some of the exhibits in the lady’s bedroom at the museum. A tiny glass patch dish circa 1750 would have held patches for a lady’s face.   http://www.fredericacards.co.uk
