It was a gift to her mother, Princess Birgitta, from her grandfather King Gustav VI Adolf.

LadyFinn has posted links to some more rarely known tiara wearers on the wedding thread:
Prince Carl Philip of Sweden and Sofia Hellqvist: June 13, 2015

I especially like the tiara Marianne von der Esch, but also Kristine von Bilixen-Finecke has a nice laurel tiara.

I'm very curious about Princess Ursula's tiara. It's strikingly similar to the Spencer tiara worn so often by Princess Diana.

I would bet that it is a copy on loan from a jeweller.

Princess Ursula used to wear a heirloom tiara from Infanta Maria de la Paz. But this tiara was sold shortly before Madeleine's wedding. At Madeleine's wedding Princess Ursula wore another smallish floral tiara. Both this Spencer copy and the small floral tiara have never been seen before. That's why I assume that they were loaned.

I voted for Queen Máxima because all her bijoux were coordinated together and matched with the burgundy dress. The amount, the size of the gems and the quality of the parure did the rest.

Well no surprise there! Maxima clearly outshone all in the jewellery department (as she did in the outfit category, at least in my opinion). She certainly knows how to make an impression.

Maxima won two of our best jewels polls so far! Quite an achievement, but not very surprising indeed. She has a gorgeous jewels collection and is not afraid of wearing her treasures with panache!

What helps Queen Máxima is that she can wear serious colliers, corsages, brooches, earrings, bracelets and rings in combination with her diadem. Other royal ladies often wear a diadem and then the rest is more or less 'forgotten'.

Look at this picture:
- diadem: match
- earrings: match
- collier: match
- bracelet: match

And all of them with not too miserable diamonds and rubies either... The other arm showed another ruby bracelet (no match with this set) and then she left home the big devant de corsage which is part of this set, not to mention the famous fan - in Sweden she sadly sported another fan than this one.
