According to Chaumet, the Dentelle de Lumière tiara in white gold is "set with brilliant-cut diamonds of around 24.23 carats." Though it carries a hefty amount of diamonds, the tiara is actually pretty lightweight and "revisits the lattice motif with a modern touch, an emblem of Chaumet since the Belle Époque." The tiara also features Chaumet's signature fil-couteau technique, "which makes the metal disappear to allow the diamonds to shine through."
