Very nice and golden. I did not know lalique made jewelry and other bling.

All the gold tones underscore the regal feel of this.

I've seen Lalique jewelry but nothing this dramatic. Stuff from the Belle Epoque is pretty thrilling.

Such an elaborate tiara! It must weigh a ton.

I believe I much prefer my beret -:) That tiara, though very pretty, looks much too uncomfortable. The things you women do for fashion!

I don't know a tiara from Guadalajara, but this looks a bit heavy and unwieldy. Pretty, though.

Il est trop beau. Very fancy!

Un peu comme une couronne de reine. C'est de l'or massif?

Il faut de bons pectoraux pour supporter un tel poids sur la tete!!!

Thérèse said...

Pas n'importe qui peut se permettre de porter un tel diadème et non seulement de le porter mais de marcher avec...

Paulie said...

Olivier said...

Loree said...

Very pretty tiara.

I know something of Lalique glasswork, but not much about the jewelry, which seems really awesome.

en plus pour passer inaperçu c'est raté

Le diadème parait énorme et lourd!Et je me dis qu'aujourd'hui, il n'y a plus de grands dessinateurs poètes pour croquer les belles actrices...

Beautiful tiara. Makes one wonder though what she was doing on stage while wearing this ornate head dress.

Pas facile a porter!

EG Wow said...

Ah, there's my tiara! I must thank Julia and the Lambinet Museum for taking such good care ot it. :)

I wonder how much such a thingie might weigh. Obviously beautiful so it'd be worth the effort...

Classic and interesting. I think for me the name Lalique brings back the Art Nouveau books I used to read and look at.

Extraordinary!

Catherine said...

Peut être un peu too much le diadème. Par contre le dessin, quelques traits et le personnage surgit.

Lalique, Cocteau!... She was in good hands, no doubt about that!
