We've had requests for some lower cost wedding tiaras and circlets, and , we finally have some.
These are a little different look from our own exclusive hand cast designs, but they fill a niche, and are perfect for those who want something for one time use, or just something of a different style.
Right now I've only put of three of the dozen or so tiara designs that will be up soon, but you'll get the idea of what these are like.
They are hand made, mostly of wire that has been twisted, hammered and wrapped, to create very unique and stylish designs in both gold and silver tones. some have cabochons as well.
Keeping with our commitment to provide one of the best selections of wedding tiaras, bridal tiaras, tiaras for costume, ritual and theatre, look for more styles to be included in our collection all the time.
A little about Tiaras at Wikipedia. Also, check out our Celtic Jewelry as well.

In spite of a sketchy economy, we're still seeing a steady demand for Celtic jewelry of all kinds.
The number of visitors to our site at uniquecelticjewelry.com has remained steady, though the months of February and March were challenging in terms of actual sales.
It seems to be getting back to normal in April, with sales of Celtic tiaras picking up noticeably, which could be because of the need for spring and summer weddings.
One of the reasons why Celtic jewelry is still in demand, is because it is not a trendy jewelry niche, but one that is based on heritage, and the timeless allure of Celtic knot designs, and other Celtic symbols, such as the Spiral, Triskele, Triquetra, Claddagh and others.
We are continuing to add new items to our online store, so look for an even greater selection of Celtic jewelry, Celtic pendants, Celltic earrings, wedding tiaras, bridal circlets, and other Celtic designs.

It the time of year for our first Scottish Games, the Sacramento Scottish Games, held in woodland California.
This is one of our favorites of the year. It is fairly close to home (300 miles), the weather is usually good, and the crowds are usually good as well.
The Sacramento Games usually has great entertainment (this year Wicked Tinkers and Men of Worth), and is a friendly crowd, which is how they advertise it as well.
We'll be bringing some of our new circlets, as well as some new mammoth tusk carvings. We'll also have our usual selection of Celtic pendants, Celtic earrings, and rings, including large rings for the gents.
We'll be in the Ag building, which is on the left, about 50 yeards after entering through the front gate.
We hope to see you there!

If you weren't paying attention, it may have seemed that the sudden popularity of Celtic jewelry was something that just burst on to the scene. But those that know better understand that this revival of sorts was actually thousands of years in the making.
If you are looking for jewelry that is both striking and makes a statement, it's time for you to take a look at what this jewelry has to offer. This bold, stylized type of adornment is derived from the art of the ancient Celtic people of Europe. It has a variety of different meanings and it is no wonder that this kind of jewelry has become so attractive and desirable in recent years.
Celtic art, which is reproduced in silver and can easily be found on earrings, rings, bracelets and pendants, is ornamental, but it could be found in a wide variety of different locations. Perhaps most famously, it has been found on large stone monoliths and posts, but the distinctive, intertwining knotted designs have also been seen on jewelry and on the illuminations of the day, done up in bright and vibrant colors as well as in gold and silver paints.
Today, Celtic designs can be seen primarily on silver and gold jewelry, and there are many reasons why it is so popular. During the middle part of the nineteenth century, there was an Irish revival that featured a reclaiming and reassertion of Irish identity. It was, in many countries, called a Celtic revival. As a result of this movement, there were many showcases of Celtic art that exemplified the twisting designs of the art that is so very distinctive.
This notable form of Celtic art is important to various people in various ways. For some, it is an important part of claiming their Irish or English heritage, one that goes back more than a thousand years. As such, it can put them in touch with their roots in a very visual manner. Similarly, other people are fond of the Celtic designs because of their unending nature; the long loops without breaks are very striking and can be quite meaningfully interpreted by the people who choose to adopt them as personal symbols.
Still other people like the symbolism of specific pieces of artwork themselves. For instance, one example of an ancient engagement ring was the claddagh, a representation of two hands holding a crowned heart. Many couples have adopted this piece of jewelry as a personal statement of their commitment to each other and as an assertion of their bonds with the past.
It is no wonder that Celtic jewelry has made such an impression on people today. Along with a fascinating intriguing design, it offers a great deal of insight into the past, and like any good adornment it decorates and beautifies the wearer!
