Item description for Timeless Tiaras: Chaumet from 1804 to the Present by Diana Scarisbrick...

A sumptuous selection of jewelry made to adorn the head - tiaras, aigrettes and bandeaux. Emblems of success and happiness, tiaras are some of the most beautifully crafted jewelry pieces of the past two centuries. The House of Chaumet has continuously excelled in this art, from the papal tiara offered by Napoleon to Pius VII, to the hundreds of hair adornments created over the last decades, always reflecting the period's most formidable fashions and decorative arts. An exquisite selection from unknown Chaumet archives representing the most aesthetic portraits of head jewelry, the book is an inspiring look at Chaumet's wondrous adornments. The author traces the evolution of these jewels from the 18th century to present, featuring the outstanding personalities for whom they were made and the great events at which they were worn.

Reviews - What do customers think about Timeless Tiaras: Chaumet from 1804 to the Present?

Well worth of owning it!   Dec 24, 2007
Amongst the jewelry books I own, this is another one that I highly recommended for those who love beautiful antique jewelry / tiaras. Tiaras are important in the the antique jewelry / jewelry history. "Timeless Tiaras" captured different types of tiara wearers from royals to celebrities, and contained fabulous jewelry sketches / archives. It's well worth of owning it!
Timeless Tiara Pictures  Feb 22, 2005
Let us be clear- this is a picture book. Beautiful pictures but just pictures. This book contains very little text. If you like detailed photo captions or historical background information you will be disappointed with this book. But for a photo overview of the wide variety of styles and designs in headgear this is a great resource.
tiaras galore  Sep 5, 2003
This is a wonderful to drool over the fabulous tiaras that were made over the course of the 19th and early 20th century. The only drawback is the lack of text explaining more about the tiaras themselves. It's a wonderful book, but if you can only buy one, get the tiara books by Geoffrey Munn!
