Elizabethan Pearl Wedding Tiaras

The high adventure whimsical 1987 film "The Princess Bride" told a story of beauty  and the romance that brought two people together in love.   The film itself was certainly charming, but the costumes stole the show.  The Princess bride wore a silver crown of flowers which were combined with pearls positioned in the center of the flowers.  The crown was particularly enchanting, and at some angles it looked as if it was combined with real flowers.  Elizabethan jewelry captures the essense of grand luxury as jewelry was anything but plain.  16 century jewelry often featured stones with primitive cuts that we don't see  in today's market.   In the 16th century, jewelry featured gems with simpler cuts, often oval or square in shape.  Diamonds were cut much like a pyramid, where the shape is cut like a pointed gem.   Although, these primitive cuts are hard to find in todays market, pearls at that time were just as much as much of a showcase as gems were.  Pearls staged themselves in brilliant gold and were also sewn onto clothing and were most commonly used to decorate hair.  Dyeable Deals sells a beautiful tiara (3154) which features gold flowers and is accented with white pearls giving this tiara a look much like the princess bride crown, except nicer!  Dyeable features a number of stunning floral tiaras which can be ordered in gold and silver.

    Nice post The Princess bride wore a silver crown of flowers which were combined with pearls positioned in the center of the flowers. The crown was particularly enchanting, and at some angles it looked as if it was combined with real flowers. Elizabethan jewelry captures the essense of grand luxury as jewelry was anything but plain. Thanks a lot for posting this article.
