Hair has always been dressed, adorned, styled, and hair jewelry has crossed all periods and styles. From combs to clips, from tiaras to pins, we find objects made of precious metals like gold or silver, or simpler materials like wood or horn. The Art Nouveau period was a very creative decade for hair jewelry: by honoring femininity and curves, the jewelers of the time allowed women to adorn their hair with accessories of great finesse and were indispensable elements of the toilet.
Today these jewels are elements that we easily wear during a wedding, a civil union ceremony, a beautiful party. They adorn the head and dress the hair for the special events of our lives.
