The flowers and fauna on the coastline of Cornwall inspired this Mirri Damer gold tiara set with tiny seashells and Serpentine - a Cornish semi-precious stone. 

When Cornwall-based jewellery designer Mirri Damer was asked to create a crown for comedian Dawn French to wear at her inauguration as Chancellor of Falmouth University, the resulting headpiece was anything but traditional. Taking inspiration from the flowers and fauna on Cornwall’s windswept coastline, the Mirri Damer tiara has a rustic feel that makes it perfect for brides who are looking for something a little bit different. While the tiara worn by Dawn French was a one-off design, Mirri also undertakes private commissions.
