Past and PresentBook - 2008
Tiaras , now available for the first time in paperback, is a sparking celebration of these beautiful jewels. Featuring diadems, wreaths and head-dresses ranging from delicate antique pieces to contemporary designs, this jewel of a book is a delight for anyone interested in fashion and precious gems. Geoffrey Munn traces the history of the tiara, illustrated with striking examples by famous designers such as Faberge, Cartier, Versace and Westwood. Originally worn by royal and aristocratic ladies as symbols of status and by brides as symbols of love, tiaras are now enjoying a revival as a fashion statement.
