The Gandik Diraja. The trademark tiara of the Queens of Malaysia is known as the Gandik Diraja. Crafted from platinum and diamonds, it incorporates several traditional motifs: a central star with a crescent and the swiriling “awan larat” design. The current version was remounted from a previous diadem by Garrard in 1984 and is designed to break down into a locket and set of brooches.
