And the crowns have names. The Halo Tiara, The Meander Tiara, The Russian Fringe Tiara…they are mostly very, very, lovely but for the odd, overdone colored stone one …not that I have anything against rubies or emeralds. I just imagine wandering into the vault to choose the perfect one for the evening’s festivities…or perhaps to “loan” to the DIL..
Not a chance in a million I will be near any diamond crown in the near future…. I think the closest I will get is something of my own devices… which brings us to the latest chart from Rouge du Rhin: Fiche Royal. Imagine my delight when the designer sent me a copy of this new chart filled with dozens of crowns, and fleur de lys… maybe there is a crown, or two, in my future…
Above is a “trousseau” kitchen towel stitched designs from the Rouge du Rhin Royal Chart.
