Tiaras Through Time
Given the opportunity, who wouldn’t want to wear a bejeweled tiara, just once? Don’t answer that, Mr. Fierstein!
Proving that a timeless tiara isn’t an oxymoron, Timeless Tiaras: Jewels for the Head from Chaumet (Diana Scarisbrick; Assouline Publishing) bestows something to drool about. It’s the perfect holiday gift for the girl who has almost everything. Or, a wonderful resource to consider when designing your bridal headpiece,
Gorgeously photographed and beautifully illustrated, the volume shares the history of the legendary jeweler’s collection of ornamental headwear. From a diadem offered by Napoleon I to a ultra modern photo of a white t-shirt clad Rashida Jones lounging against a juke box with a sleek diamond tiara of ears of corn in her hair (as seen, left), there’s nothing less than dazzling here.
Sweet dreams are made of this…
