Queen Rania of Jordan Sparkles in the Arabic Script Tiara for New Portrait Celebrating King Abdullah II’s Silver Jubilee

Queen Rania of Jordan and King Abdullah II commemorated their Silver Jubilee with an official new royal portrait featuring a significant tiara in the queen’s collection. The couple celebrated 25 years on the throne, following the reign of Hussein bin Talal from 1952 to 1999.

For the couple’s new portrait, King Abdullah wore military garb, including several medals, a hat and sword at his side. Queen Rania favored subdued elegance.

The royal wore a simple, short-sleeve black gown with a statement brooch and a plum-colored sash. The centerpiece of Queen Rania’s royal look, however, was undoubtedly her Arabic Script Tiara.

The tiara includes roughly 1,300 diamonds with seven drop stones and one large, pear-shaped diamond weighing roughly 20 carats. The most striking, yet subtle detail of the tiara is the script featured in its design, with the Arabic words “Greatness for Allah” from the scroll of the Quran featured in the tiara.

Queen Rania has worn this particular tiara on other formal occasions. In 2006, during the royal couple’s tour of the Netherlands, Queen Rania wore the Arabic Script Tiara for a series of photos taken alongside dignitaries at a the state banquet at The Hague.

The Arabic Scroll Tiara was made by Yan Sicard for Fred in 2005. The tiara was a gift from Queen Rania’s husband. Along with the tiara’s debut during the couple’s 2006 tour of the Netherlands, Queen Rania fashioned the tiara for another recent royal occasion.

Queen Rania wore the glittering royal jewels to her son Crown Prince Hussein’s wedding to Princess Rajwa in June 2023. Queen Rania paired the statement jewelry piece with a cream Elie Saab cape gown.
