Cartier floral tiara bought and worn by the Princess of Rethy (Lilian, wife of the King of the Belgians) after WWII. Apparently has not been seen since 1958. "Un diadème de diamants commandé chez Cartier par le roi Léopold III pour la princesse. Il a été porté sous d’autres versions, notamment avec une base de diamants supplémentaires et la fleur centrale en broche."  And apparently, Lilian is wearing it in that fashion here. At first I didn't think it was the same tiara. See photo on this…
