It’s New Year’s Eve and why wear one of those tatty foiled 2014 “tiaras” when you could be swanning about in the real thing?
You don’t have to be royalty to wear one and you don’t even have to be a millionaire. Sotheby’s sold this late 19th century aigrette tiara for USD $24,579 (including buyer’s premium). An aigrette was a popular spray of feathers or jewels worn to mimic an egret feather and often worn in the hair or as a brooch.
So happy new year in advance … and don’t have so much fun that you forget where you left your tiara.
