Crowning Glories


It’s your day to be a princess—why not top off your bridal ensemble with a tiara?  

Princess Diana wore one to her royal wedding, of course, and commoner Autumn Kelly borrowed one from her future mother-in-law, Princess Anne, when she married Queen Elizabeth’s eldest grandson last May. Elizabeth Hurley wore one designed by the European jeweler Chopard for her marriage to businessman Arun Nayer. Bridal headpieces, like any fashion accessory, wax and wane with the trends, but the tiara is simply timeless. Tiaras, whether they’re encrusted with rhinestones (or the real thing), embellished with pearls or highlighted with crystals, are a top choice of au courant brides.

Some of the latest styles include tiaras that look more like an incredibly elegant headband and tiaras adorned with twisted wires and beading for a more organic, handmade look. Tiaras that feature a mix of materials and even a mix of colors also are making headway—for example, the French jewelry company Cartier created a half-million-dollar tiara that boasts a mix of diamonds, rubies, pink sapphires, morganites, green beryls, peridots, garnets and amethysts. Far more affordable interpretations made instead with colored crystals, beads and rhinestones can be found at upscale bridal boutiques in Central Florida and online.

From traditional to trendy, shining with rhinestones or lustrous with pearls, tiaras can give any bridal ensemble the royal treatment. Look to these top tiara styles for inspiration.
