The Versace Tiara
The famous Gianni Versace Tiara worn by Madonna in the Mario Testino photoshoot for her second advertising campaign with the maison will be presented for public auction next week.
Born from Gianni Versaces famous atelier collection, The Tiara contains over 1,200 diamonds and is worth more than an estimated $3 million. The Tiara won the famous De Beers Diamonds International Award, a major recognition in jewelry circles, in 1995 due to the meticulous detail and craftsmanship Gianni Versace put into creating the piece.
Leon Kuperman, President of auction house Bidz.com Inc., commented, “The Tiara, with its unique brand cache, and intrinsic value has widespread appeal to the most discriminating jewelry buyers around the world.”
