It's the whole set- the whole thing! From tiara to belt buckle! In the original box! And if anyone made a snarky comment about "matchy-matchy," you know it would be their envy talking.
Want another look? You bet! I could look at this all day. (That's why I'll never win the lottery- I would blow it all on something like this and spend all of my time staring at it, calling it "my precious.") [Update: Sold for $13,750.]
