The truth about your tiara

By Ann-Marie Payne

A tiara (from Persian tara borrowed by latin as "tiara") is a form of a crown. Often referred as a diadem.

Traditionally, the word tiara refers to a high crown often with a shape of a cylinder narrowed at its top, made of fabric or leather and richly luxuriant. A diadem (from the Greek 'diadema, diadeo' to surround) was originally a white ribbon that weas placed on the shoulders that surrounded the head of the king.

A Tiara was historically used by kings and emperors of ancient people to denote power and wealth. The Assyrians used to include a pair of bull horns and a circle of feathers as a decoration symbol of authority. This design was modified by the Persians to a more similar truncated cone, without the horns and feathers, with elaborate ornate jewels and a conic shaped tip at the top.

During the birth of Catholicism the Papal tiara was introduced. A high cap surrounded by three crowns and bearing a globe surmounted by a cross. This was worn by the Pope during certain ceremonies bearing the symbol of his authority. Since Pope Paul VI set aside his tiara after the second Vatican Council the Papal Tiara has not been used. Pope Benedict XVI even removed the tiara from his Coat of Arms replacing the symbolism of a mitre. The fictional superheroine Wonder Woman is usually always depicted wearing a tiara; hers can be thrown as a weapon, as can that worn by the Pope

Moderns times have seen the tiara become a feminine symbolism for a bride. The tiara has become a semi-circular band, often metal and decorated with jewels. It is worn by the bride and/or bridesmaids around their head or on the forehead. Traditionally worn with a veil the tiara is adorned as an important piece of bridal attire.

Tiaras have become a modern symbol of beauty, frequently used to "crown" the winners of beauty pageants. More recently a tiara has become widely used as a valuable fashion item to wear, tiaras are now seen at many formal occasions. High Schools have set the standard for this fashion accessory and have become an essential item for a girl attending her prom.

Tiaras are nowadays handcrafted using metal, wire, semi precious stones and crystals. All designed to give that sparkle factor. Worn with confidence a tiara is a perfect keepsake for your special day!

"I want to just say 'WOW!' This collection is probably the best money I ever spent! I've already received many times over in personal enrichment after just 9 days. I've had a past metaphysical background, but even newcomers to this material will really benefit. Thanks again." ~ J.S. (Pennsylvania, USA)
"The collection is everything which you promised. And more! A superb contribution to the good of the world. Many thanks indeed." ~ R.P. (Georgia, USA)
"Just a short note of thanks for the library. I've only had membership for several days now but I already feel this is perhaps the most interesting compilation I have yet seen. Worth far more than the price of admission. The browser linked structure works well and makes it easy to manage such a large storehouse of information. It is rarely that I find something I like as much as this or that I feel strongly enough to write a note like this." ~ P.W. (Minnesota, USA)
