FrontRunners: Diamond Head

  • Jill Newman

A regal diamond tiara is not for every woman or every occasion, but the Graff Diamonds Alice Bands (www.graffdiamonds.com), named for the protagonist in Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, are more subtle and playful versions of the royal accessory. They are adorned with diamond-encrusted flowers (shown here), butterflies, or bows. Graff Diamonds introduced the headbands last summer at the Monaco Rare Jewels Exhibition, and since then they have become best sellers. Prices start at $95,000. Not just for black-tie balls, the Alice Bands can be worn night or day by women who want to flaunt a touch of nobility.
