Fashion of the Louvre
Once a mere piece of jewelry, now a renowned work of art
In the Louvre, there are not only famous paintings or sculptures but also shimmering tiaras, jewelry, and old-fashioned gowns everywhere.
Here is a baroque-style Louis XV crown set with lots of diamonds, emeralds, rubies, sapphires
and pearls. Unfortunately, two diamonds have been removed from it, but it is still phenomenal. When we look at it, we recognize that despite the pink color, it suits men better, as it appears to be a much heavier crown than the tiara below.
Diadem of Duchess Angoulême Marie Terèse of France
Upon first glance, we notice how a world of diamonds surrounds the rainforest-green emeralds.
me Marie Terèse was a delicate and feminine lady. This diadem would be a perfect match for those with loose, airy, wavy hair, much like it was for Duchess Angoulême Marie Terèse.
Certainly, one of us dreams of having the opportunity to try on such a crown. At the ball, all eyes would be on us, making our stylization look phenomenal due to this singular accessory, which makes it a tiara like no other.
