Downton Abbey fans who gushed over the 45-carat diamond tiara worn by Lady Mary on her wedding day will be pleased to know that the original accessory is available for hire.

But you'll have to travel to London.

Jeweller Bentley & Skinner stock the glitzy £125,000 (€151,000) garland, which is described as a 'spray of leaves and floral clusters, pavé-set throughout with old-cut diamonds.

Brides-to-be looking to celebrate their wedding in similar Georgian glory can borrow the piece for £1,250 (€1,500) a day, although a deposit of £125,000 is also necessary to cover the overall cost of the tiara.

Actress Michelle Dockery sported the pricey piece in the ITV drama when her character married Matthew Crawley.

Mothers of the bride can also compliment the Downton theme by renting the tiara worn by Dame Maggie Smith during the series two Christmas special. The daily hire sum for the accessory is £5,700 (€6,900), with a similarly hefty deposit fee.
