"First of all I am 52 years old. I bought these tiaras thinking for the cost they would be cheaply made. Was I ever pleased and shocked. I placed one on my head and it looked real. The Tiara is super shiny. It looks realistic. And it stays in place with the headband. I was so impressed. They are strong and will hold up through the evening. I give this Tiara and it's cost 5 stars of excellence. It was the best value I could find anywhere."
