And, the Wedding Shoes

The Wedding Slippers were made by Clive Shilton of embroidered ivory silk and detailed with mother of pearl sequins.  Heart shaped rosette with lace on the vamp of each shoe.  Completing the look is a tooled leather sole done by hand with gold and a fleurette pattern including the CD insignia with a heart.  Two pairs of these slippers where made for her in case of emergency on the wedding day itself.  Lovely!

The Spencer Tiara c.1830
A gold tiara in the form of scrolling foliage and tulip and star shaped flowers decorated with diamonds in silver settings. Although the Spencer tiara is traditionally believed to have been made in 1767 the style would suggest a date around the 1830s. The tiara has been remounted in the 20th century and the small scrolls at either end are what remains of an earlier setting. 

We will soon have a book of Tiaras on sale in the Boutique.  Please contact us if you are interested in purchasing one!
