Princess Eugenie has walked down the aisle in a tiara loaned to her by the Queen, and placed emerald centre stage to complement the wedding’s green colour scheme.

For her wedding, that’s currently taking place at Windsor Castle, Princess Eugenie is wearing the Greville Emerald Kokoshnik tiara, lent to her by Her Majesty The Queen.

The tiara was made by Boucheron for Mrs Greville in 1919 in the fashionable ‘kokoshnik’ style popularised in the Russian Imperial Court.

The tiara is made of brilliant and rose cut diamonds pavé crafted in platinum, with six emeralds on either side.

The tiara was bequeathed by Mrs Greville to Queen Elizabeth in 1942.

Princess Eugenie is also wearing diamond and emerald drop ear-rings, which are a wedding gift from the groom, Jack Brooksbank.

It appears Princess Eugenie likes a pop of colour, with her engagement ring featuring a padparadscha sapphire, surrounding by white diamonds

Jewellers have noticed an increase in consumers looking at pink sapphires for engagement rings following the unveiling of Princess Eugenie’s striking piece.

To wear with her engagement ring, Brooksbank placed a gold band gifted by the Queen on Princess Eugenie’s finger during the vows. Following on from royal family tradition since the Queen Mother’s wedding in 1923, the plan gold band was crafted using pure Welsh gold.

The groom on the other hand followed in Prince William’s footsteps and chose not to receive a wedding ring.
