ONCE AND FUTURE THINGS
Lady Londonderry famously dropped this tiara down the loo at Westminster Abbey during the coronation of Edward VII in 1902. She spent most of the ceremony trying to retrieve it. Set with spectacular Siberian amethysts, the Londonderry Tiara was given by Tsar Alexander I to an earlier Lady Londonderry, in 1821.
