Hair jewelry is a concept that is becoming integrated into many more looks – both on and off the red carpet. In fact, many casual outfits today are featuring jewelry for the hair in the form of headbands utilizing metals, crystals and semi-precious stones.
Dauphines of New York is a designer of adjustable headbands that can be worn either on the head, or around the neck as a necklace. Dauphines’ designs have shown up at Bergdorf Goodman, Henri Bendel, and worldly boutiques like Melange in Kuwait.
Headbands made with fine materials like Agate, Citrine, and Amethyst are sometimes worn in a “schoolgirl” headband style, or may be worn hippie style, across the forehead. And of course, they can all be worn as necklaces, which are perfect when you wear your hair in an updo.
Some favorites from Dauphines use materials like bronze, pearls, and agate.
The Directrice is a headband made from triple-tone bronze woven with soft Italian leather accented with bronze tone studs. It fastens with adjustable elastic.
The Neutral Classic has three strands of silver chains, a strand of Czech glass base pearls, and an oversized silver chain woven with accented tan leather.
The Rock Goddess Bohemian is available in either blue or green agate and features weightless metal chains and Swarovski crystals.
