Tiara Advice, Please?

Mamma said I could wear eith of the two family tiaras for my wedding, but now she and Papa have changed their minds of this. They want to make one for me, all my own!

Since Papa and I had that fuss when they were here, I've been extremely careful to be sure to let him have his way in almost all things unless he says for me to decide, which he is doing more and more.

So far, my parents are paying for everyone to travel to Romania, and all the expenses. I bought my dress, a family friend is giving us our honeymoon, Papa is hosting the wedding meal, but they want us to have something special to pass on to our children from our wedding.

Carl is receiving Papa's gold cufflinks which his father gave him on his 18th birthday, and I get my own tiara! Papa said to look up tiara designs and email him the one I want. He will take it to a jeweler and they will fashion it for me.

There are hundreds of them! Uck! It has to be small, for I'm small, not tacky or gaudy, and I talked Papa down from gold and diamonds to sterling silver and CZs and faux stones.

Here are some I liked:







I need advice and ideas, please. Thank you so very much!

With love,
~Cat

I like the second one. It seems simple but elegant.

I like all of them. Do you have a way to try them on? Or some of similar shape. I'm thinking that the curved top one might suit some faces better and the straighter two might suit other faces better.

I, too, like the first (top) one. It's smallish and graceful. What a treat and such a lovely treasure to have as a remembrance of a very, very special time.

I applaud you for choosing CZ instead of diamonds. You know there is no blood involved.

I too like #1. It has a look of delicate elegance about it. Like it was stated, try them on and see which one looks best. I have often seen a woman who is wearing a tiara and her hairdo hid most of it.

There is always the Miss Universe Tiara. Folks will notice you then!!!

The first one gets my vote too. It looks petite and lady-like to me. But they are ALL pretty!

I also vote for the first one. I like the way the dangles will have movement more than anything. I like the pearls in the third one though. Perhaps small pearls for the dangles in the first one? They are all beautiful, and naturally your own opinion is the most important.

I like the first one too, but I love the pearls in the 3rd one. They are all so lovely it will be a difficult choice.
