Imperial Leuchtenberg Tiara - c. 1895
The diamonds in this tiara were a gift from Tsar Alexander I to Empress Josephine after her divorce from Napoleon Bonaparte.  This tiara on display in the Faberge exhibit at the Houston Museum of Natural Science is one of only a few tiaras made by Faberge.

Faberge is most often associated with the intricate eggs made for various clients.
