'Ella' original Art Nouveau crystal tiaraThis original Edwardian gilt and rhinestone tiara probably dates from around 1910 and presents a unique opportunity to wear a little piece of history on your special day.
Ella's sinuous foliate and scroll design is characteristic of its era. The delicate gilt frame was probably hand crafted and is decorated with a linear pattern. The gilt has mellowed over the years to an antiqued gold colour. Each of the sparkling, faceted rhinestones has been individually claw set into the frame.
We have fully restored this exquisite, original piece in our own studio, including replacing a few of the original rhinestones with matching crystals from the same era. We then mounted the tiara onto as antique-bronze coloured wire with a fixing loop at each end to hold it in place.
Ella is 4cm high in the centre and measures just under 13cm from side to side.
