Our Czarina Crown is an intricate heirloom crown woven of dozens of garnets.
Garnets, brass wire
Frozen lakes, stone spires, blood red lips: here is a crown worthy of a Russian faerie tale, or the Queen of Hearts. Four tall ferns are wrapped by hand of antique brass and dozens of garnet gemstone briolettes.
The shape is a faerie crown, small in circumference but whimsically tall. It's a silhouette that brings to mind illustrations by Arthur Rackham or Edmund Dulac, but this tall crown has a twist: it is so delicate and airy that it's still quite wearable for all its height. Completely saturated in the sheer carat weight of faceted gemstones, this glitters brightly in the sun.
For all that, this is an extremely light crown. You could easily forget you have it on
Four spires of antique brass filigree cones house the torch of hefty chunks of dark garnets. The same large faceted garnets ring the base of the crown, along with A-grade lapis lazuli rounds, a treasured stone. The deep midnight blue with silver veins offsets all the red and brass and brings the color scheme into richer and more exotic territory. Faceted square-cut garnets finish out the piece by snaking around the double rings of the base.
How to Wear: This crown is so light you can easily pin it into any hairstyle with a few bobby pins through the openwork wire base. It also works well over a top knot.

Most Elemental Child pieces are built around natural crystals. These precious items are each unique and have their individual qualities, both aesthetic and energetically. We are careful to design and create pieces that are sturdy and showcase the stones to their advantage. Every piece is made by hand. Most of the our collection are constructed using wire work and hammered metal. This means there is some flexibility to the pieces, and you can adjust the crystals or the base gently to suit you perfectly.
Crystals are sturdier than many other materials, but if they fall on a hard surface, they may well break. Take reasonable care when handling and wearing your piece and it will last to be passed down to generations.
We use the finest natural crystals available. These rare beauties come from all over the world and availability can fluctuate based on a number of factors such as mine output, export regulations, etc. We will always try to offer you the best price based on the materials, but pricing is subject to change without notice.
If you have any questions at all, drop us a line: firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you!
++ Frequently Asked Questions ++
Can I order one of your sold out items? Can I order a custom design?
As of November 2021, as we relaunch, we are no longer making each crown to order. The shop updates will include all of the crowns we have currently made and in stock. If you're in love with a sold out design, please let us know! We will do everything possible to include one in the next shop update.
If you are interested in one of our larger full crowns, let us know. In future updates we will be including an option to reserve one of these special, labor intensive beauties.
I've fallen in love with a design but it's sold out! Will it return?
Let us know which piece you're interested in. Our designs sell out frequently due primarily to supply limitations. Using organic, wild stones means continually sourcing from all over the world to find the right crystal to match the original aesthetics. Unfortunately some pieces are sold out for years, or indefinitely, due to the mines and suppliers simply not producing the crystal shape or color anymore. We can look into making more of your favorite piece and including it in the next shop update.
Do you ship to my country?
YES! Everywhere. Please see our Policy page for more information about international shipping.
I just placed my order, when will I receive it?
We are switching over to an all ready to ship model! Our goal is to get your orders packed and in the post within a week of your order.
Please email email@example.com with any other questions
