    Tiaras, which have been playing an important sartorial role in traditional and formal occasions throughout the centuries, are shifting their direction towards a somewhat more unconventional role in modern days. For example, a headband-like tiara, bandeau, was popular and prevalent during the early 20th century. Fashion houses have from time to time incorporated the traditional motif into their new runway looks such as Christian Dior’s Cruise 2021 collection. Tiaras are more versatile - they can be worn for weddings, formal events, and black tie galas as a glamorous and true fashion accessory.
    Lot 618, a diamond tiara designed by a renowned jeweller, Michael Youssoufian, who was once an appointed jeweler to the Royal Court of Egypt, possesses both classical and modern elegance. The tiara with 11 attractively placed pear-shaped diamonds and scroll side designs, displays a chic and fashionable look and is suitable for any special occasion. It will transform a contemporary woman into an enchanting goddess or a fairy tale princess for the day.

    多個世紀以來,不論是傳統還是正式場合,冠冕一直在服裝搭配上擔當著重要角色。在現代,冠冕更趨於一種潮流裝飾。20世紀初,一種名為「束髮帶」(bandeau)的頭帶式頭飾大行其道,服裝公司不時將傳統主題融入他們的新時裝秀造型中,如克里斯汀・迪奧(Christian Dior)的2021年 Cruise 系列。頭飾用途非常廣泛,可以駕馭婚禮、正式場合和黑色領帶晚會等場合,是一款不折不扣的奢華時尚裝飾。

    拍品編號 618 鑽石冠冕由著名珠寶商 Michael Youssoufian 悉心設計,Youssoufian 曾是埃及皇室宮廷的御用珠寶設計師,所創作品揉合傳統與現代的優雅風尚,典麗不凡。冠冕採用捲邊設計,鑲 11 顆排列精緻的梨形鑽石,外觀別緻時尚,適合任何特殊場合,能使當代女性搖身一變,成為童話故事中的公主或迷人女神。
