Timeless Tiaras by Diana Scarisbrick

Book Description

Symbols of success and happiness, jewels for the head are among the most spectacular jewelry created over the last two centuries. From the diadem offered by Napoleon I to Pope Pius VII, to the model created for Romaine Brooks (an onyx and diamond bandeau anticipating the Art Deco style of the 1920s), these jewels have long fascinated anyone with an interest in precious jewelry. Chaumet plays an important role in the history of jewels for the head, and this rich volume draws on unpublished photographs and documents from its incredible collection to trace the evolution of this unique jewelry. Images of eclectic, imaginative treasures, together with Chaumet's most beautiful creations, result in an opulent homage to beauty, originality and style.
