$16million tiara takes centrestage at celebrity wedding

12 APRIL 2013

Socialite Amber Ridinger chose quite the showstopping accessory to top off her glittering bespoke gown by J'Aton Couture on her wedding day — a double-stranded diamond tiara worth $16million (£10million).

The stunning piece was custom-made by Jacob & Co jewellers for the bride as she tied the knot with boyfriend Duane Mclaughlin, celebrating with celebrity pals Eva Longoria, Khloe Kardashian and Jennifer Lopez.

Amber kept the rest of her jewellery simple by wearing a diamond eternity wedding band in a rose prong setting. The socialite's wedding band was also created by the fine jewellery makers, who are renowned for being one of David and Victoria Beckham's favourite jewellery brands, but it was really the dazzling headpiece that was the talk of Amber's fairytale themed wedding.

The crowning glory created by the legendary watch and jewellery house is made from over 100 carats of different shaped diamonds featuring a 22 carat diamond at its centre. Fashioned out of a double-stranded necklace and set in platinum, the tiara is currently valued at $16million.

Also in attendance at the starry affair,which saw Mark Anthony and R&B singer Mary J Blige take to the stage, was founder and chairman of Jacob & Co. Jacob Arabo.

"I'm always thrilled to design items that match the individuality of the person wearing them," said Jacob. "I custom created Amber's tiara with that in mind. I was honoured to be involved in the couple’s big day."

Amber certainly made the eye-catching jewels her own as she styled her wedding day hair into a chic bun, pulled back to show off the decorative diamonds at their best.
