Tiaras have always been considered to be luxurious to wear. Crowns, and tiaras have evolved through the centuries from the simple satin ribbon to featuring an array of diamonds and jewels worth millions of dollars.

Diamond Wheat Sheaf Tiara
In December 2012, Sotheby’s featured the jewelery collection of the Late Michael Wellby. Born into a family of silver dealers, Mr. Wellby found that period jewelry captured his attention, so much so, that he collected breathtaking pieces from periods spanning five centuries.

From day one, our love for one another was electric and undeniable. My husband and I have been dubbed as an unlikely duo. We're two individuals with such unique differences that we paradoxically fit together so well; it's as if the deities of love and beauty had a field day with cupid on the day we both crossed paths. Who would have thought that a hopeless romantic and the queen of cynicism would see stars in the eyes of one another and want nothing more than to hold each other's hands?
We consider our connection to be rare, whimsical and meant-to-be for two (Read More.....)
