The Westminsters have this intriguing tiara from Chaumet. As we’ve discussed in the past, kokoshnik is often used to refer to a tiara that takes the shape of the traditional fabric Russian headdresses. This one, however, is an unusually literal translation in which blue enamel serves to mimic the fabric kokoshniks were made of and diamond flowers translate to the ornamentation kokoshniks often featured. This one was originally bought by the 2nd Duke of Westminster; it left the family for a time before the current duke reacquired it.
