David Morris launches contemporary diamond headpieces for the modern bride

London fine jeweller David Morris' new diamond tiaras combine fashion and high jewellery for a cute and contemporary accessory for your wedding day.


With the wedding season upon us, luxury London jeweller David Morris has launched two super-pretty diamond headpieces that are the perfect contemporary alternative to the traditional tiara.

The first is a stunning diamond tiara. Free from the ornate, heavy styling that turns many modern-day brides off the idea of a tiara on their wedding day, it's a fresh, new take on classic bridal head wear. Unlike Diana, Princess of Wales, who was left with a splitting headache on her wedding day because of her enormous antique tiara, you won't even know you're wearing David Morris' dainty version. Delicate and light, it resembles a butterfly, with two sparkling antennae - which are removeable for a more classic look - peeping out from between gem-set wings. Combining fashion and high jewellery, it's the kind of quirky design that has earned David Morris legions of stylish fans.

The second piece is a bejewelled headband, the proportions of which are so petite that it is only when you look up close that the intricate little details are revealed. Butterflies drift across flowers and leaves, all individually handcrafted out of sparkling white diamonds in every size and cut.

The tiara tradition at David Morris stretches back nearly 50 years. After winning a De Beers Diamonds Award two years in a row in the 1960s, Morris gaining international recognition and was commissioned to create the sapphire and diamond tiara worn by the Countess Kinsky of Austria on the day of her marriage to Crown Prince Hans Adam of Lichtenstein in July 1967 (pictured below). And 40 years ago, Morris was approached by Eric Morley, the founder of the Miss World competition, to redesign the crown for the winner. His magnificent turquoise and diamond creation is the same crown worn by Miss World today.
