Lady Mary’s “Downton” Tiara Can Be Had

“Downton Abbey” fans who gushed over the 45-carat diamond tiara worn by Lady Mary on her wedding day will be pleased to know that the original accessory is available for hire. Brides-to-be looking to celebrate their wedding in similar Georgian glory can borrow the piece for £1,250 ($2,000) a day, although a deposit of £125,000 ($200,000) is also necessary to cover the overall cost of the tiara. Actress Michelle Dockery sported the pricey piece in the ITV/PBS drama when her character married Matthew Crawley. Mothers of the bride can also compliment the “Downton” theme by renting the tiara worn by Dame Maggie Smith during the series two Christmas special.
