The tiara is staging a comeback. Far from being a fashion dinosaur, an outmoded, cumbersome relic from a former age, it is now recognised again as the most flattering and versatile form of jewellery; and is enjoying a style revival.
Tiaras have always epitomised majesty, romance and glamour, whether worn by a queen or empress at a state occasion, by a princess as part of her bridal trousseau, or flaunted by a star or supermodel at the latest celebrity party. In Tiaras Past and Present Geoffrey Munn traces the history of these magnificent jewels from ancient times to their re-emergence in the First Empire, through the work of Faberge, Cartier and Boucheron to the extravagant creations of designers like Versace today. Tiaras of all types glitter throughout these pages, from royal diadems set with precious stones, literally breathtaking in their beauty, to the punk-rock acrylic tiara of Vivienne Westwood, and stunning contemporary creations by David Linley, PhilipTreacy and Jan Yager. The tiara is indeed the jewel of the moment, and this book a celebration of it.
