Above Is The Actual Tiara You Will Receive
Heirloom Tiara Antoinette
Heirloom Tiaras are constructed around a vintage or antique piece of jewellery...these are 'upcycled' and made into something unique and amazing for today's bride. These pieces are limited to the vagaries of availability and condition of old pieces of jewellery, many of which are a once in a lifetime find...this means that the probability is that this piece can never be repeated.
Tiara Antoinette is a real 'wow' piece - this Heirloom Tiara started out with
a goldtone necklace and clip on earring set dating to approximately the 1960's;
set with fab old Swarovski aurora borealis crystal which has a blue colour to
it (though the crystal is in fact clear, its a special coating that makes it look
this way) - Swarovski do not produce this old-style coating anymore (they make
a modern one which is lovely, just nothing like this one).
This vintage jewellery set was carefully incorporated into Antoinette, to which I added handmade silver lined Murano glass beads, Swarovski crystal pearls in a delicate Aquamarine, Aquamarine aurora borealis, crystal aurora borealis and blue opal as well as tendrils of 24 carat gold lined seed beads using goldtone wire, the band is of course handmade which makes the tiara especially comfortable - a row of delicate seed bead and Swarovski tendrils sit along the band in the centre to sit on the hair, and the band is finished with crystal aurora borealis Swarovski crystal and gold-lined seed beads.
Height is approx. 2.75 inches / 7cm.
