In 2009, at Amalienborg Palace Museum, Charlotte Lynggaard introduced the Midnight Tiara to the guests at the opening of a grand tiara exhibition. The Danish Queen Margrethe praised the spectacular showpiece. Her Royal Highness Crown Princess Mary fell in love with the Midnight Tiara, and it has become a tiara she wears at less formal events.
Once the elegant, royal style icon took to the design, an instant demand for silver and gold leaves and sprouts came from women across the globe. The Leaves Collection and Sprout pendants are direct results of the overwhelming international response to the Midnight Tiara.
The tiara design was inspired by the secretive beauty of a moonlit forest. Master craftsmen at the brand workshops in Copenhagen spent more than 400 hours creating the intricate showpiece, crafted with flower buds and sprouts in different shades of moonstone and white diamond pavé, haloed by hand-satinised, hammered leaves in 18K gold and oxidised silver.
