The Princess Bride Goes Greek

Prince Nikolaos of Greece married longtime love, Tatiana Blatnik, in a ceremony attended by royals across Europe. Gawk at the bride’s historic diamond bridal tiara.

Diamond jewelry is a staple at royal weddings – especially the ubiquitous diamond tiara. Head sparklers shined bright on many a royal at the July nuptials of Sweden’s Crown Princess Victoria – but for the Wednesday wedding of Prince Nikolaos of Greece? Only the bride wore the special style.

Miss Tatiana Blatnik (29), an event planner for Diane von Furstenberg, arrived in a horse-drawn carriage and wore a form-fitting white wedding gown with lace capped sleeves (created by an unknown designer).

The princess-to-be was given the Antique Corsage Tiara to wear on her big day, which is composed of royal jewelry pieces that have traveled from Sweden to Denmark to Greece, according to Mat Hattery blog.

The diamond-and-pearl floral piece that makes up the main part of the tiara was originally a set of brooches owned by Queen Victoria of Sweden. The bride complemented the historic head wear with diamond drop earrings fixed with a pearl centerpiece.

While Greece abolished its monarchy in a 1974 referendum, royal families across Europe attended the Greek island ceremony. Visit our Jewelry Insider blog to get a glimpse of the fashion and jewels on all the leading ladies from the throne-set.
