About

Royal Obsession

My story begins when I was 12 and Diana, Princess of Wales died. All of a sudden, I found out that there was this whole world of royalty that I never knew existed. I had always thought there weren't such things as real queens and princesses, and that they were some medieval fairytale.

I started reading all I could on royalty, and I still find the institution of monarchy so fascinating! I think it's because in America, our last monarchy ended in, what, the late 1800's (in Hawaii). They are mysterious to me, and I love asking people from countries that have monarchies what they think of monarchy.

I made my first tiara when I was 16. It was a beaded silver spike tiara that I had laid over a hand crafted pink velvet-y kokoshnik (Russian peasant headdress). For the next 7 or 8 years, I made tiaras and kept them in my private collection, never showing them to anyone! Then, a friend suggested Etsy to me, and I took all my remaining tiaras (I had gotten rid of quite a lot of them) and listed them for sale. I remember when I made my first sale, it was so exciting! It is still so exciting when I sell a piece. I am so flattered that people are buying my art, it's what I always wanted for a job!

So far, I have not been able to make this a full-time endeavor, and I am currently a graphic designer. I would love to try and meld the two, and you can see some of my graphic design work in my shop banner, my business cards, and my blog header.

Everyone should wear a tiara and feel like a royal Empress at least once in awhile!

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
Payment
If you would like to cancel an order, please contact me ASAP, as I ship most items out within a day or two.
Shipping
I ship all my items USPS Priority Mail with Delivery Confirmation, and orders take 2-3 days within the US. I ship international orders via USPS First Class International and shipping takes anywhere between 2-8 weeks. I can ship items via USPS Express Mail International, but I do not recommend it, as even though it is guaranteed to reach the recipient in about 4 days, the package can still randomly get stuck at customs, and then there's nothing anyone can do. **I will note in the post if the item is to be sent other than USPS Priority Mail (US orders only).

Please Note: I know that other sellers refund any overcharges on shipping. I will only do this if 3 or more tiaras are purchased together, and the overcharge is more than $3.

Please understand that I do not know anything about VAT, so if your country charges that for items you buy from the US, I am not going to pay those charges, or any other customs taxes. In the US, we don't have to pay any additional tariffs or fees for ordering from outside our country. I have had German and British customers tell me they had to pay a small fee to pick up an item from customs, but they seemed to know that it was normal. Before you buy from the US, check what customs charges your country may charge, as I don't know what they are. Also, I oftentimes will put a lower price on customs forms, as I am worried about security, and shipping expensive things can mean they're a target for mail thieves.
Refunds and Exchanges
I really want to avoid refunds, as it ends up costing me a lot of money when I pay for the return shipping, and I am still liable for fees that Etsy charge me for the sale of an item. Please ask as many questions you have before purchasing an item, to avoid any returns.

If I decide that you have a legitimate reason for returning the tiara, I will be unable to refund the shipping cost, and I will only refund the cost of the item. I personally lose a lot of money when I refund shipping, as that money was already spent on sending the item to you!
Additional policies and FAQs
I do take occasional commissions, so if you want a tiara, but can't find one in my shop that fits your needs, I love to try and make ones that you would be perfect for you!

Also, if you ever need me to make 10 or more of the same tiara, I will give bulk discounts.
