Downton Abbey Wedding Inspiration

As avid fans of Downton Abbey, we are still infatuated with the splendidly sumptuous wedding attire of the family weddings and Lady Mary Crawley's incredible wedding headpiece!

We recently commissioned New York wedding jewelry designer Regina B. to replicate this stunning piece and it came out tres magnifique! Regina handcast the form and set it with thousands of micro fine Swarovski crystals.

The original is a stunning 45 carat old rose cut diamond Georgian headpiece in a romantic floral motif created by royal jewelers Bentley & Skinner. Typically during this period, the usual choice would be a wreath of waxy orange blossoms...we are certainly glad the talented costume designers chose this instead!
