My headpiece is a crystal headband, not a tiara, and it was about $300. It really depends on the materials being used.  Seems like a lot, but I plan to turn it into a bracelet after the wedding.

One, haha, one of my headpieces I bought is a Winters and Rain piece. Though really I don’t even know what makes it so special..other than the “crystals” aren’t plastic? Idk. And I can restring them into a necklace or somethin if I choose I guess:). If I wear that one! lol.

I just wanted to comment on what Damselfly said about cheaper tiaras using glass instead of “crystals.”  Most crystals, including Swarovski, ARE glass.  =)

Yes, crystal is glass, but it has lead in it.  It gives the glass more weight and more shine.  Swarovski Crystals are fine faceted cut leaded crystal.  There are “diamond” shaped beads that are just plain glass.  Czech beads are pressed into a mold and heat treated for shine.  Not all glass is the same.
