THE PRINCE AND THE EMPRESS - 'Sissi's Blue Dreams'
Swarovski, a prince, and memories of an empress are adding sparkle to a grand ball tradition.
Jewelry designer Prince Dimitri of Yugoslavia, who first demonstrated his flair for creating fabulous
diadems in 2012, is responsible for the design of this year’s tiaras. His latest piece was inspired
by Austrian high nobility: “I have always loved Winterhalter’s portrait of Empress Elisabeth with
diamond stars in her hair. I went one step further in the design for my latest piece. My thought
was that if Sisi were around today, the stars she would dream of would probably be blue.” Sparkling
blue crystals will therefore reflect the light of what is probably the most beautiful ballroom
in the world, proving once more that Swarovski crystal is just as important a part of the Vienna
Opera Ball as the waltz.

Swarovski debutante tiara for the Opera Ball in Vienna 2013, designed by Prince Dimitri of Yugoslavia.
(reminds me of a beatuy pageant) but seeing the tiara today at the grand opening
(of our state ball) changed my mind to some extent. I looks wonderful on dark haired ladies - pity they didn't change the colour of the velvet at the base.
