HAVE YOU EVER THOUGHT about wearing a tiara…yourself?  If you are a woman, of course you have!  Tiaras are so fabulously attractive, not just for the beauty of the crowns themselves, but because of what they do for those who wear them. Put a tiara on your head, or on your little girl, or big-girl prom daughter and

                                     — Poof!  You’ve created  a Princess!

 

Think about all that means.  The beautiful clothing.  The jewelry.  The admiration. The love. The handsome Prince! Oh, this is the fantasy of fantasies. And, it all starts with a beautiful tiara.  A little crown.  How can you be a Princess without one?

 

                                       Gift of the Gods  

 

The word tiara is Persian, but tiaras themselves actually date back to ancient Greece.  Legend has it, they were created by the Greek Gods.  That seems logical, doesn’t it?  After all, who else could have come up with something that so immediately transforms a person when it is placed on the head?  For centuries, tiaras have been raising girls and women up, giving them the look of royalty and beauty. Making them special.

 

One of the most desirable tiaras was worn by Wonder Woman, the famous comic book heroine.  It wasn’t the most expensive, in terms of gemstones, but it certainly was worth more than any other known. It was a magic tiara.   

 

Tiaras are worn by brides and bridesmaids, even flower girls, and sometimes the mothers of the bride and groom. They are worn for proms, for engagement parties, for any occasion when it is especially important to stand out and look elegant.  Cinderella eventually wore a tiara. Actresses wear tiaras to the Oscars Awards. Miss America wears a tiara.

 

YOU CAN WEAR A TIARA, TOO…AND LOOK JUST AS LOVELY AS ANY PRINCESS.  NO ONE HAS TO KNOW THE GEMSTONES AREN’T REAL. TRY:

  • A pageant crown tiara with gorgeous scrolling of clear crystals in gold-plate setting.  A dramatic must-see!

 

 

  • A lacey heart tiara in silver plating with shimmering iridescent crystals.

 

                                    

                                        How to be a Princess

 

 

QUEEN ELIZABETH OWNS THE MOST expansive and extraordinary collection of tiaras in the world.  They are also the most expensive, a fabulous grouping of golden, delicate little crowns encrusted with diamonds, pearls, and a luxurious ensemble of other valuable gemstones. 

 

When we think of tiaras, we naturally think of queens and princesses. But tiaras today are mostly worn by everyday people, who use them to gain entry into that exclusive world of royalty, if only for a day’s journey through fantasyland.  Audrey Hepburn was the first person to really popularize tiaras, when she wore one in the film Roman Holiday.

 

Madonna, as her chosen name certainly suggests, was not one to be outdone by others on the royalty route.  When she married Guy Ritchie, she wore a 78-carat diamond tiara, worthy of an American Princess.  Of course, a real “American Princess” also wore a tiara years before her. That was Grace Kelly, when she married the Prince of Monaco.

 

LOOK AT THESE IMPRESSIVE BRIDAL TIARAS:

  • Scrollwork bridal tiara with white and off-white pearls and clear rhinestones in silver or gold plate.  Exquisite!

 

 

  • Bridal tiara comb inspired by Celtic tiara designs.  Crystals and pearls are spaced within fine, twisted wire.

 

                                The Beautiful Princess Tiana

 

DISNEY HAS A NEW PRINCESS. Her name is Tiana, and she will be the first African-American doll in the royal family.  This charming lady is about the size of a Barbie doll; she wears a flowing blue gown and, on her head, she wears a beautiful three-pointed tiara. 

 

Of course, a beautiful black princess isn’t anything new.  As just one example, think of Cleopatra, who thousands of years ago reigned as the beautiful black queen (and before that, princess) of Egypt. But as far as we know, the tiara didn’t exist way back then.

 

Princess Tiana is luckier. She has a wonderful tiara, and she wears it with elegance in the new Disney animated musical, The Princess and the Frog, which will debut later this year.  Her doll will retail for about $10 to $15, and Disney says it expects sales of the doll to surge once the film opens.  Sales of tiaras for little girls can be expected to follow.  

 

Opportunities to wear tiaras are almost limitless. Little girls wear tiaras on special occasions of all sorts.  For graduation from kindergarten, or grammar school.  For First Communion or Confirmation. For costume parties and birthday parties. For her first dance.  For Easter or Christmas festivities.  For birthdays. And for so many more occasions! 

TIARAS CAN TURN LITTLE GIRLS INTO PRINCESSES FOR ALL OF THESE OCCASIONS.  SNAP!  JUST LIKE THAT!  HERE ARE SOME TIARAS THAT HAVE THAT KIND OF POWER:

  • Child’s pearl and rhinestone headband – a tiny tiara just right for flower girls, or First Communion children.
  • Delicate rhinestone tiara in silver plate.  Not too big, not too small, just right for the growing child’s First Dance!
