Tiaras: fashion accessory


Dreamer! Did you know that… in ancient times, diadems were originally headdresses worn by royalty, and tiaras were worn only by popes?

Hera, queen of the Greek gods, wore a golden crown called the diadem.

So… in the Medieval period, crown-shaped jewels, or coronals, were worn by brides of all ranks.
