Let's face it: As much as we love to watch Downton Abbey for its period drama intrigue (Who will be the new footman? Who is the true heir of a hefty inheritance?), the real reason we watch the epic British series is for the fashion. From the Georgian silhouettes, stunning silks, and classic British game gear to the more recent 1920s flapper-inspired gowns, each episode is filled with major wardrobe (and, of course, wedding) inspiration.
The height of Downton costume design? Lady Mary Crawley's wedding day tiara. A leafy diamond-encrusted accessory, her headpiece topped off an elegant, custom pearl and crystal-embellished long-sleeved wedding dress that only Lady Mary, in all of her sophistication and grace, could pull off.
Now, for brides who have a ginormous budget, InStyle is reporting that the 45-carat diamond accessory is available for rent-for your very own wedding!
