You Can Now Wear a Bridal Headpiece By Downton Abbey’s Tiara Designer
Well, in case you’re not sure you can/want to swing the $2,000 per day it costs to rent the actual headpiece that Lady Mary wore for her wedding to Matthew (sob) in Downton Abbey, you should know that there’s another option for donning glam-1920s-British-nobility/authentically Downton jewels on your wedding day: Andrew Prince, the designer who created the bejeweled tiaras and headpieces worn by the lovely ladies on the show now has a collection available for purchase for, um, non-noble brides.
The New York Post tells us that his tiaras and headpieces will be priced around $625—which, I mean, is actually pretty on par with a lot of the high-end brands’ more bejeweled creations—and his jewelry, around $70.
The collections, right now, are available at Kleinfeld Bridal and Bergdorf Goodman, but we wouldn’t be surprised if we saw these pieces creeping up in a lot more stores than that, love, as brides do, to look/feel like a princess on their Big Day.
Perhaps my favorite part of Mr. Prince’s tiara designing? His outlook on the ritzy accessories: “Tiaras are the most useless and the most fantastic.” Well said.
