Downton Abbey Lady Mary wedding tiaraCarnival Film & Television Limited For Masterpiece

Obsessed with Downton Abbey style? Operating on a big — we mean big — bridal budget? If you answered yes to both of those questions, we have some good news. You can rent Lady Mary’s now-famous diamond wedding tiara for your trip down the aisle. (Warning: Spoilers below!)

For most Downton fans, the highlight of season 3 was Lady Mary (Michelle Dockery) finally marrying Matthew Crawley (Dan Stevens), her now-deceased husband. The show’s costume designer, Caroline McCall, went all out for the bride’s look, topping the custom long-sleeve pearl-and-crystal embellished wedding gown (which took eight weeks to create!) with a 45-carat garland diamond tiara, valued at $200,000 from U.K. jeweler Bentley & Skinner.

Now the jeweler is renting the gorgeous piece for $2,000 per day, according to InStyle. And you better not lose or break it, because the rental fee includes a deposit of $200,000. (But you’ll be getting a little extra bang for your buck: The crown also converts into two brooches!)

Are you still lusting after Lady Mary’s bridal beauty moment? Would you consider splurging on the tiara? Share your thoughts below!

You don’t want to wear that if you are superstitious! Lady Edith was wearing it when she was left at the altar. But then, it’s just a story — right?

You should have placed the “spoiler alert” in the article title. Way too late to say it in the article. Disappointed.

but they didn’t even show the wedding on Downton!

Kristina- Matthew Crawley died December 25, 2012. It is now February 2014. How can that be a “spoiler?” Please. Mary wore it, and her husband died. Edith was left at the alter wearing that thing (and gave birth to an illegitimate daughter, losing her virginity and getting pregnant at the same time- and Gregson was murdered in Germany by the Brown Shirts in Munich).

wtf? I’ve seen plenty of cheaper knock-offs that looked just fine, why would I have to spend 2000 when I can get it for 150?

Guest on

Really…why would I ever want to do that?
