Casual Friday: Tiaras on Parade

Friday, July 11, 2014

Loretta reports:

Earlier this week I offered the Dowager Duchess of Devonshire’s take on tiaras,  including those she and family members wore.

Today I thought you might like to simply look at some.  Certainly a number of these call to mind her comments about the weight and the need to stand straight.

Most are really lovely. They raised a question. Did the ladies of the Regency aristocracy ever wear tiaras?

Watching this video is mesmerizing.Such a variety of tiaras! I love your blogs and, again, wonder--how in the world you come up with all of these amazing videos and photos. I would never have time to write my own books if I was chasing down this yummy stuff. Thanks! Kathryn Johnson, aka Mary Hart Perry
