Inside The Fight For Queen Victoria's Wedding Tiara

One of the most important jewels of Queen Victoria's historical reign is in danger of being sold to a foreign buyer. 

The British government has acted to stop the sale of Queen Victoria's $6.5 million coronet, blocking the deal after the tiara's owner applied for an export license. 

But the ban is only temporary, giving local buyers until December 27 to stop the sale of the stunning piece. 

Culture minister Matt Hancock, who imposed the ban, said he hoped a U.K. purchaser would step forward to match the $6.5 million asking price. 

"It is one of the most iconic jewels from a pivotal period in our history and symbolizes one of our nation's most famous love stories," Hancock said in a statement, according to the BBC

"I hope that we are able to keep the coronet in the U.K. and on display for the public to enjoy for years to come," he said. 

The stunning headpiece was designed by Prince Albert to match the sapphire and diamond brooch he gifted his bride the day before their wedding in 1840. It cost around $543 when it was made.
