Wedding and Bridal Tiaras would you wear one?
Thank goodness the wedding tiara is no longer the domain of the world’s ‘royal families’. This headpiece historically relegated to those born into royal clans is now often used by the ‘common woman’ as an elaborate finishing touch to her wedding day ensemble.
Steeped in tradition some of the more famous royal tiaras are:
1. The modern Fringe Tiara last worn by Princess Madeline of Sweden
2. The Poltimore Tiara worn by Princess Margaret
3. The Savory Pink Topaz Tiara worn by Clotilde Courau Princess of Venice and Piedmont
4. The Moroccan Meander Tiara worn by Princess Lalla Salma
5. The Queen Mary Fringe Tiara worn by Queen Elizabeth II
6. The Diamond Vine Leaves Tiara worn by Princess Claiare of Luxembourg
7. The Prussian Tiara worn by Queen Letizia
8. The Queen Margrethe Tiara worn by Crown Princess Mary of Denmark
9. The Dogmar Prussian Tiara worn by Princess Marie of Denmark (not to be confused with Princess Mary of Denmark)
10. The Halo Scroll Tiara worn by Kate Duchess of Cambridge
As you can see from the above, the Tiara has had a long, fascinating and storied history throughout the ages. It is worth mentioning that a number of Europe’s crown jewels including tiaras worn by many princesses and queens are also a large part of Africa’s blood diamond legacy.
