A Baby Crown fit for a future King or Queen
Jeweler and Artist Gay Isber has a royal connection – she has already made a crown for Kate that she gave to the royal couple in Canada two summers ago. Isber also has made jewelry for the royal great grandmother to be, HRM Queen Elizabeth, Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall, Camilla.
Gay is a seventh generation Texan and a Canadian citizen. When Gay lived in Canada, she made jewelry for the Royal Museums and Parliament gift stores.
“It is a natural that I made something special since I have gifted the Royal family so often. I created this miniature crown, not knowing if it will be a boy or a girl. I used baby pearls that are 60 years old from the time of Queen Elizabeth’s beginning of her reign. They are very rare and in perfect condition.
I wanted to represent all of the regal colors of precious stones so I used Swarovski crystals in ruby, sapphire, emerald and for a touch of pink - tourmaline. I had some wonderful old bead caps that look like mini crowns, those were used to accent real and also, very vintage pearls. It is stunning and very much a museum piece.” Isber noted.
The presentation box is hand made my Gay, too. “I researched everything that I could about Kate to get my inspiration. A crown doesn’t just come in any old thing, it has to be part of the keep sake. I loved the nod to nature with the butterflies plus how I mixed and matched patterns to represent the style Kate has in her fashion. Then, I added a touch of glitter to make an entrance.

Now, we just wait for the baby so I can add a name to the box to mail it. “
Isber has made jewels and items for a long list of fashion icons and rock stars.
Photos of the crown where taken with a boy child and a girl child separately so when the baby comes the appropriate photo can be issued.
