What could possibly be better than a gorgeous Art Deco diamond tiara? If your guess was “a gorgeous Art Deco diamond tiara that converts into both a necklace and a bracelet,” you are in luck. If that wasn’t your guess, you’re still in luck because you get to look at it too.
This beautiful Art Deco diamond tiara (/necklace/bracelet) is listed in Bonhams’ 19 September 2012 Fine Jewellery auction in London. I can’t think of a better way to celebrate Talk Like a Pirate Day than scooping up some major booty like this. Arrr.Thanks to Bonhams for the images and information.
