Her fashion choices for her wedding have erred on the sentimental side, for her henna party she borrowed the Bruce Oldfield belt her mother wore on her own wedding day, and for her actual ceremony she wore another family heirloom, a dazzling diamond tiara.

The diadem which was crafted by luxury jewellers Chaumet. Founded in 1780, Chaumet was the very first jewellery Maison to establish itself on the legendary Place Vendôme in Paris in 1812. According to reports the piece once belonged to her grandmother, Princess Muna Al Hussein, mother of King Abdullah.

This isn’t the first tiara she has worn of a family member, in a video which her mother Queen Rania posted on her Instagram on March 6 she shared an official portrait photograph of Iman wearing her own Diamond Floral Tiara which hadn’t been seen in two decades. Many assumed that it would be this opulent tiara that Iman would choose to wear, rather than the more discreet number her grandmother lent her.
