So none of these belong to the SRF foundation and may therefore be gifted out of the main line?

In theory one of these tiaras could be given away. But I'm 100% sure that the King won't give away the cameo, Connaught or ruby tiara, since all of these three tiaras are steeped in family history and are amoung those who are primarily reserved for the Queen. Only for the grandest events, like weddings, they are loaned to other family members. These three tiaras will surely pass on to the next Queen.


Only the modern fringe might have gifted to Madeleine. But that one is fairly new and was only rarely worn by Queen Silvia. I wonder if it was purchased for the sole purpose to eventually give it to their daughter. But nothing is safely known about it's origin.

I may be wrong but i think i have read somewhere that the King has quite recently included the whole Cameo Parure in the family foundation and that he is considering to do the same with the Connaught Diamond tiara. Just can't remember where i read it.

If Princess Margaretas AquaMarine Kokoshnik tiara is back in the Kings jewel box maybe that could be a wedding option for Sofia ? Margaretas daughter Sybilla used it as the bridal crown at her wedding and i think it looked great.

It would be very welcome news if it's true that the King has included those jewels in the foundation. Please post about it again if and when you find the info about it again.

I agree that the aquamarine koskoshnik looked great on Sybilla Ambler. But I think that if the King has bought back the tiara, the family will be very discreet about it while Princess Margareta is still alive. I thought it interesting that Princess Christina has worn it once: now it seems to be used more often, but we still don't know if Princess Christina borowed it from her sister or from her brother. But letting Sofia wear it would be the same as an outright confirmation that Princess had to sell it because of financial trouble. They won't do that, imo.

There is a lot of tiaras that is rumours about. Lucky us!

It would indeed be good news if the King has included them in the foundation and secure them to stay in the main line.

I will post it if i find the information and it is the case.

I think you are right though it's not a secret for anyone that Margareta and John had huge financial troubles in the 90:s. The tiara is likely kept at the Palace in Stockholm for safety reasons. Can't imagine Margareta is keeping such an import peace in her small house in UK (as Christina sadly did with her now stolen tiara) so she may very well have loaned it to Christina for that representation dinner. We'll see who wears it next. But i still think it would look great at Sofia.

Thank you!

Princess Christina wore hers on a regular basis, so it was convenient to keep it at home in Stockholm. Princess Margaret mostly needed her tiara in Sweden and never wore it from her English home. So it surely it made most sense to leave it in the castle in Stockholm, as there was no safer place.

Imo it's a gorgeous tiara which would look good on nearly everybody. I think we might see it again on Princess Margareta at the wedding, but I hope to see it on the younger royal ladies in the future.

I'm still hoping that we might see a long forgotten or possibly a new tiara on the future Duchess of Värmland!

It would be nice if a new tiara was made.
Some of the jewels could be those that are in the crown on the Royal Arms of Prince Carl Philip.

While it would be nice to see a new tiara, I cannot help but think that if Sofia walks up the aisle wearing any tiara other than a Swedish family tiara, it will be interpreted as a sign that Sofia has not really been accepted into their family.

Wearing a new one at some future point would not pose such a problem.

I completely agree with you, and have espoused the very same view further up the thread.

Would it really be such a big deal if Sofia didn't wear a tiara or would it just be noticed by royal followers like us? If she for instance choose to have flowers in her hair, a traditional bridal crown or maybe fasten her veil with bejewelled hair clips I'm not sure people would notice or even care

Since the Swedish hairdresser of the Royal family is rather creative in including jewels in the hairdo, there is also a chance that Sofia takes a lesson of Charlene .

IMHO not wearing a tiara is not really a possibility for a royal bride in one of Europe's most high profile monarchies like Sweden's.

I think that the press has a pretty close eye on what happens on the mayor internet forums and blogs. They would probably pick it up and throw it at their readers.

Charlene looked great, imo, and such a hairstyle would suit Sofia well. But I can't see which jewels in the Swedish collection would work for that effect. It would have to be something new. Or do you have some jewels in mind?

there are several brooches that Sofia could wear in her hair. Silvia & Madeleine have both worn the Rose Brooch while Victoria has worn other brooches in her hair.

Yes, but beautiful as the rose brooch is, it would be far from the splendour and glamour of Charlene's hairstyle with those large and flexible floral ornaments.

We also have the Diamond Riviere Tiara.

Crown Princess Victoria Tiara 49799 | MOVDATA

It is a long time since the Crown Princess or Princess Madeleine wore it and I think it would look really good in Sofias dark hair. On the other hand this tiara almost demands to have the hair down, and I'm not so fond of that for a bride.

I think she will get a small tiara of her own. Maybe made from a brooch etc.

yes, on it's own, but add in some other diamonds and it could become a gorgeous look.

although honestly, the brooch pinned over the veil could look stunning if done right.
