Announcement    How to order your custom crown: Choose the type of stones you'd like- we offer larger, flat-cut genuine gemstones as well as smaller quartz stones. We also have "comb" style options if you'd prefer that to a headband-style crown. All crystals are genuine with the exception of the chandelier crown, those are chandelier crystal and are not a semi-precious gemstone. For the smaller quartz pieces, smoky and white are natural but all other colors are dyed. If the listing you've chosen doesn't include centerpieces, branches, chains, etc. but you'd like to add those, you can do so using the "Add-Ons" listing! Ask me if you have any questions! I am very responsive to messages and can personalize crowns just about any way you'd like. Just a few stones I dont' carry that are often asked about: Kyanite, Obsidian, Black Tourmaline, Malachite, Bloodstone, Opalite, Mookaite, Moldavite, Hermiker Diamonds. These stones are either hard to find in the size/shape I need, or they are too brittle and break easily. Our crowns are durable and made to be worn, and all headband style crowns feature a soft velvet backer for comfort. They do get a bit heavy, so we do recommend securing your crown with hair pins if you find it slipping.

The Original Crown

In September 2016, my husband and I were hosting our wedding reception. I wanted a raw crystal crown, but the options online were expensive, and prices went all the way up to $250 for one that I really wanted. We didn’t have a lot of money- we paid for the entire wedding ourselves. My parents hosted us in their back yard, and we even catered dinner for 125 attendees ourselves to save on cost! After weeks of searching for a crown online and not finding one I could afford or that I liked, my husband decided to make one for me! It turned out beautifully, and Riff made me, Lizzy, the first ever RiffLizzy crown with Angel Aura and Sapphire Quartz.
It was gorgeous- It was everything I wanted, it matched my dress and my personality perfectly, and a friend even made me a matching necklace with the leftover stones. We received a lot of compliments on my crown that day and people were blown away to discover that Riff had made it for me! Over the last couple of years, folks kept asking where they could get a crown like mine, and I had to tell them “Sorry! It’s one of a kind!” After years of compliments and some encouragement from close friends, we decided it was time to put our crowns out into the world.
In January 2019 we created our first batch of 10 pieces and launched our Etsy page! Since then we have launched our product into metaphysical shops in Wisconsin and Minnesota and have been creating custom crowns for folks across the US! Even our most expensive crown is less than $100, and custom options start around $15. We’ve sourced gemstones from around the world and are proud to offer a wide variety of genuine gemstones.
There are plenty of other crownsmiths out there creating stunning, amazing, and beautiful work every day, but no one features the quality, price, and customization options that RiffLizzy Crownsmiths offers! Each crown is unique and handcrafted at our home studio in Eau Claire, Wisconsin, and each crown’s stones are carefully curated and hand-wired to ensure a durable, beautiful, and wearable piece.

Frequently asked questions
Care instructions

Crowns can be heavy and may need to be pinned into hair for them to stay in place. Clean crowns with a dry cloth only; water may cause the wire to rust, and chemicals may cause damage or color alteration to the stores. When storing your crown, make sure to insert it into the box diagonally as it comes shipped; we do this so that it fits tightly in the box, and isn't knocked around during shipment.

Custom and personalized orders

YES I do custom and personanlized orders; almost any crown or barette you see on the website can be customized with different stones, charms and centerpieces.

Please note- I have a no returns/exchanges policy on custom orders, as they are customized for you personally and I can't re-sell something that was made specifically for someone. If you receive your piece and really have an issue with it, I encourage you to please send me a message and we can figure out a way to make sure you're happy with your piece!

I typically will not message or send customers photos of their crowns in progress unless they specifically request that I do that. If you want photos of the process, please message me when you place your order so I know!

Wholesale availability

If you're interested in a wholesale order (more than 5 crowns, or more than 12 barrettes) please reach out to me with a message first. Our 2 crownsmiths also work full-time day jobs, and we often get so inundated with orders that a bulk/wholesale order could put us severely behind on our production schedule. On-time shipping is a priority for us, so please message us ahead of time before placing a large order, so we can find a way to fit your order into our production schedule without delaying other customers' orders. Thank you! :)

Sizing details

Our crowns come on a metal headband, the headbands are around 6" deep and 5" in width, but they are flexible. They also come with a velvet backer on the back side of the stones, which protects the wearer from being scratched by any wires, or from uncomfortable stones. The velvet band also makes the crown stay on a bit better, although we do still recommend securing the crown into your hair with a bobby pin. If you're concerned this item will not fit, consider our comb-style crowns, which can be tucked into the hair or into a bun! We have a variety of sizes of comb-style crowns, from larger 4.5" width pieces to mini crowns, which are around 2" in width. These can also be pinned in to secure them.
