Originally published to accompany the popular exhibition at the V&A, and now available for the first time in paperback, "Tiaras" is a sparkling celebration of these beautiful jewels. Featuring diadems, wreaths and head-dresses and 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, Westwood and Versace. 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.
