Kokoshnik

The Kokoshnik Tiara has long been a symbol of wealth, elegance and monarchy. Also known as the "Russian fringe tiara", this particular type of head ornament was inspired by the traditional Russian peasant head-dress. Consisting of a graduated row of upright and radiating stiff bars set with diamonds and forming a "halo", it can be also worn as a necklace. Very famous in the Russian Empire during the 19th Century, it soon became a must-have of the European Royal Courts, starting with the United Kingdom when Princess Alexandra, who was to become Queen Alexandra of England, asked to have a tiara made in the Russian style, identical to the one of her sister, Empress Maria Feodorovna of Russia. By the end of the 19th Century, Kokoshniks were part of the court dress for Ladies all around Europe and stayed highly fashionnable until the end of the 1930's. Very rare today, they are still associated to glamour and power.
