After the Empress Josephine was divorced from Napoleon, she ordered this tiara from Faberge in 1890. The briolette diamonds were a gift to her from Tsar Alexander I.

  2. Ice, ice, baby! Fabulous rocks, although my own preferences lean toward opals. The two part necklace with all the emeralds is simply stunning.
