Carnation Wedding Crowns

Wedding crowns in Scandinavia were worn by brides of all social strata. They were owned by the bride's parish and loaned for the occasaion. Wedding crowns were richly decorated with emblems of conjugal love: this example includes carnations, associated with enduring marriage because their fragrance outlasts their blossoms, dangling linden leaves, which represent fertility in Nordic literature, and angels, Christian figures that allude to the eternal and spiritual qualities of marriage.

PRINCESS MARGARET'S WEDDING TIARA How magnificent and regal!! I think it's incredible that this tiara can be converted into a necklace - what a stunning piece of jewellery it must make on the neckline!! ~ (The Poltimore Tiara, a gift from H.R.H. Queen Mary. In 2006 this Poltimore Tiara was sold for over $1.5 million dollars.)
