But first, some backstory about this famous royal artifact. Fergie found herself in a bind after she agreed to marry Andrew because her family did not have a tiara.

The Queen had one made for her by the designer, who has also made her famous ruby ring, 'Garrad'. This tiara, now known as the York tiara, was a part of a three-piece necklace, earrings, and bracelet set.

Last public sighting

Unfortunately, Fergie and Andrew's messy separation and eventual divorce meant that she was no longer a member of the royal family, even if she got to keep her Duchess of York designation.

It is not clear if she got to keep the York Tiara as well. A report on Express.co.uk states that the tiara last made a public appearance at a White Tie and Tiara Ball, hosted by Sir Elton John at his Windsor mansion on July 5, 2001.

Will it make a comeback?

Although rumors about a rekindled romance between Fergie and Andrew is a reason enough to anticipate the return of this gorgeous piece, there are more practical hopes for its return.

Royal watchers suggest that Princess Eugenie will wear it when she marries Jack Brooksbank in October. What do you think?
