The "Coiffes et Parures" signing at Mellerio

On March 7, I attended a book signing for my children’s book “Coiffes et Parures” (Headdresses and Finery) at Mellerio’s, one of whose turquoise naturalist tiaras features on page 12. The jeweler, which recently celebrated its 400th birthday, excels in the art of this jewel and has created hundreds of pieces for empresses, queens and princesses from Europe’s royal families. On a highly enjoyable sunny afternoon, our young guests colored tiaras and created them in paper, rhinestones and feathers. Mellerio and TFJP also invited them to wear a real diamond tiara, the “Monte Rosa”. A unique experience immortalized by photographer Laetitia Le Gouvello.
