Stunning Antique Myrtle Wedding Crowns by Naturae Design
Today we are crushing over these stunning antique silver and gold myrtle crowns by Naturae Design! Breathtakingly pretty, unique and the perfect thing to wear if you love vintage or for your something old…
Naturae Design specialise in hairpiece design and jewellery made of antique and precious materials.
Wearing myrtle as a crown for weddings has a long history that goes back to ancient Greece. It’s a symbol for love and considered to be Aphrodite’s flower.
In the Victorian era this tradition made a comeback in Austria and Germany and brides started wearing Myrtle bridal crowns and matching boutonniere for the groom. Wearing an antique myrtle is a perfect way to wear the “something old” for good luck.
The crowns in our shop have been worn between 1880 and 1970’s. The antique silver plated bridal crowns were traditionally for either a wedding or to celebrate a 25th anniversary. And the gold plated crowns where worn by a 50th anniversary of a marriage.
All crowns have been restored to their original glory by polishing, repairing and reshaping the delicate leaves and blossoms.
