Thatís lovely - is it a new piece? Iím asking because I was wondering if there is even a market for tiaras any more.
Yes they make new ones. People still buy for the same old reasons; to display wealth. They tend to not have large stones in modern ones though. The fancy debutant balls and weddings are the most common showcases.
Looks like this is a recent one: https://www.garrard.com/tiaras-and-headdresses/
I noticed the names of their Princess tiaras are Alice, Beatrice, Catherine and Charlotte.
I didnít know that. Seems like a silly expense for a one time wear, but thatís just my opinion.
I noticed that too LL! I guess you can be Princess Charlotte for a day (and for $$$).
Thereís a whole world of ďsilly expenseĒ out there that us plebs will never comprehend! When you look at someone like Kim K-W, who spends hundreds of thousands of dollars on the flowers alone for her wedding, or the ridiculous and extravagant birthday parties thrown for their children, with thousands of dollars of balloon sculptures and the like, that only end up in the trash (and landfill!).
I have seen some Australian ďcelebritiesĒ (who are these people), who drop $10K on a birthday party for a one year old! And of course its featured on DM!
Its obscene and extravagant indulgence, but I guess itís their money in the end.
All of this to say, I am sure there is a huge market amongst the 1% for this type of thing.
