The Quinceañera is a young woman's celebration of her fifteenth birthday, which is commemorated in a unique and different way from her other birthdays. During the reception, there is a crowning ceremony where a parent or godparent replaces the headpiece worn by the quinceanera with the tiara.In many Hispanic cultures, gifts are given to the Quinceanera by padrinos (godparents or sponsors) chosen by the family. The padrinos who give the traditional gifts are formally recognized, and often are part of the procession for either the church or reception ceremony, or do the presentation of the gifts to the priest for the blessing. The Tiara plays a critical role in the actual Quinceanera ceremony. The young lady is passing from childhood in adulthood and the tiara reaffirms the dignity and power of women and signifies her new responsibilities. The headpiece that is worn by the Quinceanera during the beginning of the ceremony will be replaced with the Tiara.
