The stunning piece is known as the Greville Emerald Kokoshnik Tiara and once belonged to Queen Elizabeth, the Queen Mother.

It's made of "brilliant and rose cut diamonds pavé set in platinum, with six emeralds on either side."

The tiara was made by French jewelry house Boucheron in 1919 for Dame Margaret Greville, a society matron and philanthropist.

Greville left her impressive jewelry collection — including the kokoshnik tiara and the one pictured below— to then-Queen Elizabeth upon her death in 1942.

TL;DR: Princess Eugenie chose a gorgeous, historical, and somewhat unconventional tiara for her big day.
