STORY: 

The Myrtle flower has been a long cherished symbol of love and unity.  It is tradition across the world for brides and grooms alike to adorn themselves in the symbolic blossom. 

Queen Victoria included a sprig of myrtle in her bouquet whilst Catherine, the Duchess of Cambridge and Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex have continued this tradition.

Foiled silver paper versions of the Myrtle tiara were popular when celebrating a couple's silver wedding anniversary of 25 years in Germany. 

This tiara is both beautiful and romantic and comes with a matching boutonniere for the groom. It is crafted from handmade foiled paper twisted onto to a silk covered metal frame. 

The crown is delicate but is very flexible. It sits rather tight like a headband but imagine it can be secured into your hair with hair pins. The individual flowers can be bent with care and styled to suit your preference. 

This tiara is the perfect "something old" for your special day -  A family heirloom to be treasured for generations to come. 

CONDITION: 

The tiara is in great condition given its age. There is wear to the edges of the silver leaves/blossoms however it gives the piece a depth and vintage quality. Some of the leaves have been bent however they are easily moved back to place. There is some discolouration to the ends of the tiara where it is to be secured in your hair. This however will not be seen once it is tucked in. Care must be taken to make sure the tiara is stored properly away from damp and that it doesn't get wet.
