Crystal Heirlooms: one-of-a-kind headdresses and bridal accessories
Crystal Heirlooms offers a unique collection of one-of-a-kind headdresses and bridal accessories, each individually designed and skilfully handcrafted around beautiful vintage jewels, lace and appliqués.
The heirloom jewels in our headdresses and accessories date from romantic Edwardian and Art Deco eras through to the glamorous and glitzy 1960s. We often add vintage findings or new Swarovski crystals, freshwater pearls and feathers to create exquisite accessories with a contemporary feel.
The Bridal Collection:
Each of our one-of-a-kind headdresses, vines, halos, combs and hair jewels has its own unique design. From elegant simplicity to intricate sophistication, from unashamedly glitzy to gently sparkling, the collections include designs and colours for every style including Art Deco, Hollywood glamour, regal lace, festival and vintage country garden.
We specialise in bespoke designs and can create your dream accessories with all the attention to detail you deserve for your special day. This service includes headdresses, sashes and belts, feathery capelets, cuffs and birdcage veils. We can incorporate your own treasured jewellery or family heirloom, you can choose from the many beautiful vintage pieces in our treasure chest, or we can source pieces especially for you.
“The headdress Jean made me fitted in absolutely perfectly with my not wanting to look a traditional bridal but wanted everything to be special and coordinate and follow the theme. You were brilliant and brought to life what I had only vague images of in my head. It added to the magic of the best day of my life and people were fascinated when I told them of the symbolism of the bits and pieces in my headdress. I loved it!” Gill, Wiltshire
Our beautiful lace and feathery capelets add the perfect finishing touch and the opportunity to refresh your look during your special day. Each is hand made with antique lace lined with pure silk and then trimmed with floaty new ostrich feathers. The capelet is finished with an authentic vintage clasp.
Our bespoke hair accessories for your bridesmaids, flower girls and Mother-of-the-Bride feature colour antiquities including crystal jewels, silk flowers, lace and appliqués. Or browse our limited edition collections: Distinctive Bridesmaids and Night and Day.
