Some headpiece companies offer the prospect of either remaking your headpiece into jewelry that can be worn after the wedding or the possibility of wearing the tiara around the neck after the wedding. I have found that initially many brides find this idea appealing as their practical side takes over. This practicality doesn't usually last long. Most aspects of the wedding are chosen by taste, love, and that once in a lifetime dream fulfillment.
The choosing of the headpiece should be based on all of the above mentioned aspects. If the headpiece of your dreams is a convertible headpiece, that could be good. However, most brides want to keep their headpiece in tact as a cherished memory of their wedding.
If you do go the route of convertible, be sure that the company that reworks your headpiece uses a fine quality clasp and considers your design preferences. Unfortunately, many of the companies that offer this service, simply string the pearls and crystals and finish it with a very ordinary metal clasp. You really have to consider if you would ever wear this reworked piece as jewelry anyway.
The other option is the tiara that is supposed to work as a necklace after the wedding. Usually these pieces are uncomfortable and questionable in taste.
Mary Clary Designs offers both of these options with tasteful, beautiful designs that pay attention to all aspects of detail and quality. If your choice is to wear your headpiece as jewelry after the wedding, we will work with you to make that dream come true.
- I studied art, both from a perspective of practical design and from the perspective of art as an influence to the human spirit. My studies in art were at the Academy of Art in San Francisco and at George Washington University in Washington, DC. My passion for art and things of beauty brought me into the world of jewelry design. The wedding is a perfect venue for the display of beauty, and the bride has become the perfect "canvas" for my talents. Each of my handcrafted pieces has been described as a "work of art". Mary Clary Designs has been featured in "Bride's" magazine, "Modern Bride", "Greenwich Magazine", and "Fairfield County" magazine on numerous occasions.
