Jewelry has been a part of the history of mankind. It was adorned through the ages for various reasons. It is difficult to determine what caused the trend of jewelry to start but it has been around for centuries. It was initially handmade with fishbones, feathers, stones, seeds, and any material that could stand the test of time. These were worn to indicate a certain tribe, religious beliefs, societal class, status, and other such reasons. For example, nose ring designs are said to be brought to India by Moghul emperors. These were introduced in the 16th century and are adorned till today.
One piece of jewelry, that is debatably the most magnificent one, is the crown. A crown is a symbol of royalty, power, uniqueness, superiority, and wisdom. The pinnacle of jewelry, a crown separates the wearer from the rest of the crowd. Although this was exclusive to kings and queens, it has now become a symbol of honor. A crown is a coveted piece of jewelry worn during weddings and wedding parties. This adds a heap of glamour to the wearer’s look, making one of the most important days of their life, much more dazzling.
Let us look at the types of crowns that are available.
Circlet is an ornamental band of precious metal that is worn on the head. This may be studded with stones or maybe a plain gold ring without any intricate work. These are also called diadems. A circlet is not very high and can look good with a white wedding gown that can be fixed along with the veil. This type of crown compliments any type of clothing and can be reused on any occasion. The standard shape is a circle; however, the outline can be changed for effect.
A coronet is another type of crown that looks regal when adorned. A coronet was traditionally worn by nobles. There is a circular band that rests on the head and a pattern that branches out upwards. You will generally find a coronet that has triangles extending above the headband. It is generally decorated with pearls and made up of gold. You can look for a coronet that is also studded with stones matching your outfit for your special day.
