Jewel of the day: Elia of Albania Wedding Tiara

On October 8 Elia Zaharia married Leka II of Albania (variously described as crown prince and king. Since Albania doesn’t have a recognized monarch, it’s tough to say which. Some news sources have said prince/princess; some of have said king/queen.

The good news is the the bride got to legit wear a tiara. The bad news is … it’s this one, known as the Ram of Skanderbeg tiara. It features a ram in the centre, a nod to an earlier Albanian ruler and a design feature on many Albanian jewels. It looks (marginally) better on than in photos. Anyhow, she did make for a lovely bride. The happy couple will reside in the Albanian capital of Tirana.
