I think the cut-steel tiara would also look nice if she wore her hair up with a veil over it ala CPss Mary on her wedding day.

I have to say that I love that ruby tiara, but I doubt it will be used a wedding tiara because it does have rubies in it. I'm sure Victoria will want to be traditional and keep the tiara as just clear stones or the rubies. I do love the Cameo tiara, it is really beautiful and is the likely contender for the bridal tiara--but I think if we do see a different tiara it will be either the Connaught diamond tiara, which is so gorgeous I literally begin to salivate when I see it or we will see the six button tiara. Which, I find to be really beautiful. Those rosettes are highly historical and significant to the royal family. It is also probably lightweight, which could play a factor in the decision. The Cameo looks very heavy to me. The Connaught is set in platinum, which is lightweight. But, I do like the idea of restructuring the six button tiara, and maybe putting some additional elements between the buttons to make it less stark. I don't know why everyone hates it so much, the history behind it makes it quite beautiful to me!

Thanks, Tilla
I am not a big fan of rubies but that tiara is stunning - I would wear it in a heartbeat!

I'm in the minority I know, but I cant stand the cameo tiara. Combined with that veil Queen silvia had...yikes. The word tablecloth comes to mind. I know some of you loved it but, not on my list of favorite royal bridal looks.

I am with you Scooter, I don't like it either. It looks so busy and over the top to me. But with the traditions it now has as a wedding tiara I fear that we will see it again next summer.
Does anyone agree that a diamond tiara is the perfect thing for a wedding? Some pearls in it would be ok, but please: no coloured stones, nor cameos!! It is supposed to be a white wedding after all...

The more photos I see of the Cameo Tiara confirm my opinion that it is a "special, unique and attention getting" tiara.

The present Queen was a very pretty young woman, but even for her the dress had to be so understated as to be almost invisible as the Cameo is just too busy, too much going on. In short, while it is a large and significant tiara, it is also the epitome of 'Dainty"

Victoria has her own style and can be very elegant. If she were to wear the Cameo all eyes would be on a tiara coming up the aisle!

IMHO Victoria's wedding should be an absolute stunner. The dress, the hair, the veil, the jewelry should be so romantiacally harmonious, so elegant that with her unique megawatt smile she will be so stunningly radiant that we will all say "here comes the future Queen".

I think they should look to Queen Elizabeth's wedding gown. It was a work of art. And it's colour . . . wow! Victoria is also a brunette and with all that golorious hair she could look fantastic.

I made a little photoshop to get an impression how the Cameo Tiara would look on Victoria

Stunning picture, Her Majesty! It's only a pity that it will be at least another year till we can varify if it is anything like the truth

No! . . . no, no, no! It looks even worse than I imagined. Like a child's party hat, and the veil? Well let's just say least said soonest mended.

I will say that the diamond collet and dress look very interesting. Maybe that is the answer to the problem, a strapless or off the shoulder dress could help balance the "Monster", but that tablecloth really does have to go!

I am sure that we won't see anything like a strapless dress. Usually royal brides wear long sleeves and avoid low necklines. It's all very decent!!
I still hope for a diamond tiara, but I don't mind the pic with the cameo. Let's not forget that it's photoshop! With the right hairdo to go with the tiara and a different veil it would look more harmonious.

What you are referring to as tablecloth is actually an old historic Veil, which was also worn by the Kings's sisters on their Weddings. So most likely Victroia will also wear it. But hopefully places in antóther way then on Silvia where the Veil was folded a few times. Fior example Princess Désirée used it together with some tulle over it.

I have to be honest. The kudos for the "tablecloth" reference more properly belong to Scooter. I just concur. . . . just as concurred as it can get.

Moving on, it may be historic but that does not make it beautiful or even just plain nice. What is it? Some kind of weird hazing ritual that the SRF inflicts on it's female members? Both Princess Desiree and Queen Silvia 't wore very high necklines and plain dresses so they wouldn't look totally OTT what with the Tiara and the Veil.

This is the wedding of the Heir to the Throne. She who will be Queen. She should get to choose her own style.

I understand the Swedish Royal family has a pink topaz parure. This might be pretty for CP Victoria or even the Queen.

It's a demi-parure consisting of necklace, earrings and a brooch but no tiara which could be worn by Victoria as bride.

I´m almost certain that the Queen will wear the sapphire parure at the wedding (if it´s an afternoon wedding).

i am really curious wich tiara she will wear. i hope victoria will not chose one of the very large tiaras.
i would prefer one of the smaller tiaras.
or maybe a very new one... a wedding tiara. :)

i also hope some of the crown princesses will wear new tiaras for the wedding. but i guess this is wishful thinking.

Complete agreement about the lack of design on Queen Silvia's wedding gown. It, and that veil, were a complete failure--especially considering how wondefully she dresses now!
The Cameo tiara is beautiful--I would prefer a reworked version of the buttons tiara because I think that they would be beautiful with a veil--but, the odds I do believe, are on the Cameo--although, Victoria will be next Queen--not just a Consort--so maybe we'll see something different from her mom. Who knows! But, the Cameo is a substantial piece--not unlike the Poltimore worn by Princess Margaret. I would like to see something similar to Margaret's wedding gown (which is somewhat similar to Grace's)--with the hair all up and elaborate!!

Stefan is correct: The ruby parure was first owned by Désirée Bernadotte (born Clary) before she became Queen of Sweden; it was left to Queen Josefina (born de Beauharnais - Leuchtenberg), who gave it as a wedding gift to her granddaughter, and that's when it first came to the Danish royal family.

To return to the subject here:
By now, neither the four- nor the six-rosettes ('button') tirara has been seen worn for quite some time.
If they still remain un-seen during the upcoming Nobel festivities, I would be starting to hope that there might be a new flower tiara in the making, using the rosettes in a new design and ready in time for the wedding...
Far-fetched, but not impossible.

Just like the thought of the aquamarine kokoshnik tiara: Its fate remains unresolved, and there is a faint possibility that the King might have bought it back from his sister Princess Margaretha.
