The latest from London-based editor, Justine Aw.

As part of Selfridges’ Big British Bang, the department store have turned their Wonder Room into a Big British Shop, full of all sorts of iconic celebrations of Britishness, and among them are a host of tiaras! Including this ‘Magic Crystal Tiara’ from Bompas & Parr. Watch a timelapse of our crystal tiara growing and more photos on the next page.

In addition to the expected blingy tiaras (like a 52,500 GBP diamond grace tiara, and several jewel-studded pieces priced in the millions) and royal replicas, the shop has lots of fun laser cut acrylic tiaras from Tatty Devine.

But the tiara that caught my eye was the Magic Crystal Tiara from Bompas & Parr. A festive grow-your-own crystal tiara! How could we resist?

With ‘just add chemical’ construction, it was simply a matter of pouring and waiting for the crystals to grow!

Watch our tiara grow! The whole video captures about six hours of crystal growth with photos taken every 5 minutes.
