The most public opportunity for Princess Margaretha to wear the aquamarine tiara would have been The King's 60th birthday gala - but she wore the amethyst tiara instead, which Queen Silvia had made convertible in 1979.
The aquamarine tiara has indeed not been seen for twelve years, its accompanying very large brooch even longer, and I'm actually 'clinging' to the idea that the pieces were not sold to anyone but The King as well.
To let a decent time period pass in order not to draw attention to the severe financial troubles of Princess Margaretha's late husband could still explain why the tiara might have stayed (hopefully) in the Bernadotte vaults.

This is all very strange. If the King had bought the aquamarine tiara, Princess Margaretha could have borrowed it from the King instead of the amethyst tiara. But maybe she just wanted to wear something different for a change? (A change from what though? If you only use a tiara every couple of years, repeating the same isn't as boring as having to repeat it 4 time a year). Or it was decided to keep the aquamarine tiara hidden for a while, so that some grass can grow over the sale, before someone from the main-line starts wearing it?
In less than 5 weeks we might know more. If Margaretha borrows another tiara again, that would mean that it is really sold.

I´m sooo hoping that Victoria will receive the Aquamarine tiara as a wedding present and that she either wear it to a pre-wedding gala or start to wear it after the wedding, but i don´t think she would wear it to the wedding - then i think she will wear the Cameo tiara (or possibly the connaught).

I think she will wear the cameo in honor of her parent's anniversary, but I would prefer to see the Connaught. It is "bride perfect" in my opinion. And, looks so much lighter in weight--that cameo tiara looks rather heavy to me.

I hope she wears a glittering tiara. Not the one Silvia wore.

I hope she wears what she wants and doesn't feel obliged to wear the Cameo in honor of her mother.

Could it be she might wear the Cameo because it's probably more lightweight than the others? Some of the tiaras are heavy and she'd have to wear it all through the ceremony and reception. Having an equivalent of two bags of sugar on your head all day would be frustrating.

I hope that she receives a new one from the King and Queen.

Is there a possibility of the Braganca Diamond Tiara?

Well said, CP5! I think she'll wear the Cameo tiara anyway. Just a feeling.

Don't think so. The Braganza tiara was onkly worn by Queens until now. I hope we will see it on Queen Silvia on the Wedding Day.

I think, the Braganza Tiara is the only tiara in the whole collection to have only been worn by Queen Silvia, so I don't think Victoria will wear it while she is Crown Princess.

The Cameo and Leuchtenberg sapphire Tiaras have also been exclusvely worn by Queen Silvia since her Wedding.

Ya know....I was thinking....as much as I would Love to see Victoria in one of the many stunning Swedish tiaras for her wedding I think it would be great if she got her own suite of jewels (gift maybe)so we always are reminded of her big day. Anyone have any ideas? Diamonds with pearls? or something...

A diamond and pearl tiara, or even better a complete parure, is definitely missing in the Bernadotte collection. I my eyes that would be the most perfect wedding gift. But I think she should wear her "new" tiara for the pre-wedding gala. The wedding tiara should be one with historical importance, after all she is the heir to the Swedish throne and not any rich heiress.

So we can start to make some nice guesses again.
What do you think about this one:
