Fine jewellery suppliers such as Tiffany and Graff report rising sales in high end hair ornaments and while we might only dream of wearing the value of a car in our hair, we can’t deny Amy from The Big Bang Theory’s claim that tiara makes every woman feel just a bit like a princess.

You can see our full selection on our Pinterest board but here are a couple of our favorites.

And we do mean inspiration. At this time of year our tiara classes are very popular and we’re all always looking for new ideas and styles. And if a full tiara feels to much – how about creating a a sparkly or pearl embellished comb? These may be easier for a summer party.

And if you aren’t in a sparkly mood – think floral headband, feathery fascinator or cocktail hat for a chic, glam and vintage look. Fabulous headwear is a great way to stand out this summer.
