This is my first diadem ever (actually I'm not sure if it's a good word for it and what's the difference between diadem and tiara ;) ). I made it for my friend who got married last weekend :). She looked lovely - she had medieval style hooded white cloak and beautiful dress with looooong sleeved bolero - totally awesome :).
The diadem matches these earrings: [link]
and the bride wore also this Triple Goddes symbol (as it was pagan wedding): [link]
I made this diadem from scratch of fine silver, sterling silver and moonstones.

As always - you can find my jewellery in my Etsy shop: [link]

Ah, and here:[link] you can find more photos of this lovely bride :).

maybe breathtaking is the right word in english, the german pendant is "atemberaubend" and i would add an "bezaubernd", the pics are looking as all good things come together to one really magic moment, keep up your impressive work ;)

Diadems are pretty much like crowns, actually. Some argue that diadems are worn on the forehead, unlike crowns which are placed on the head, but in many cases, they're synonyms. What is certain is that diadems make a full circle (or almost). I would say this is a tiara. :)

Your work is really breathtaking. Keep it up! :D
