But the usual Nine Prong Tiara or Connaught Diamond Tiara is more likely option.

If she wears a tiara at all. To the black tie dinner during the state visit in France, she did not and wore parts of the Cameo Parure without the tiara.
I hope Silvia will wear a tiara tomorrow. What does she usually at black tie State Banquets abroad? France was not even black tie but short gowns with daysuits for the men so it can't be compared.

Even if she doesn't wear a tiara (buhu!) it might be interesting to see how she works some jewels into her hair :)

Bellevue palace is not the Elysée, fortunately in this case. Under Hollande few tiara's were seen there (only QEII IIRC) while during the last royal state visits to Germany we did get to see tiaras.

Sometimes she doesn't wear a tiara at all, sometimes she does.

Here is a picture from the state visit to Australia. She wore the modern fringe tiara.

She normally wears the Nine Prong or the Connaught tiara in events like that. The "bigger guns" like the Braganza, the Leuchtenberg or the Cameo tiaras are reserved for more formal occasions.

The dress code at German State Banquets is usually black tie for the gentleman and long evening gowns for the ladies. The last few royal ladies who attended such State Banquets wore tiaras, eg. QEII or the GD of Luxemburg. In France, on the other hand, the dress code nowadays is suit for the gents and short dresses for the ladies. Tiaras would look ridiculous with short dresses, don't you think?

So I daresay that Queen Silvia will wear a tiara. My guess is the Connaught tiara, since she seems to have stopped wearing the two fringes. Maybe she'll wear the prongs, but nothing bigger than that. Though I'd really like to see the rarely seen ruby tiara. That one is so under-used.

Soon we will see. I think the Pronger is to big for the occasion as it is only black tie, and she seems to rank the tiara as her third most important tiara.

However, I agree that the Ruby Tiara would be lovely to see. It is far too long time between the occasions.

Seeing how much the Queen is adored and esteemed in Germany I wouldn't be Surpirsed if they made a special exception and threw a white tie banquet in honour of their königin :) have we seen an invitation for tonight's banquet? There still might be a chance of a cameo parure sighting...otherwise if it is black tie I'd say one of the Connaught tiaras or the amethyst parure

Wer am Nachmittag beim großen Ordensaustausch bedacht wurde, trägt seine Auszeichnung. Freilich sind die Auszeichnungen nur mit kundigem Auge zu erkennen. Das hat mit der Kleiderordnung zu tun. An einem Frack hätten das deutsche Großkreuz und die hohen schwedische Auszeichnungen Platz. Beim Bankett im Schloss Bellevue aber ist Smoking vorgeschrieben. Also präsentieren die Geehrten die Miniaturausgaben ihrer Orden: winzige Rosetten am Revers.

Translation:
Who has been honoured during the Order exchange in the afternoon, can carry his decoration. Of course, only a seasoned expert can eye these decorations. This has to do with the dresscode. On a tailcoat the German Großkreuz and the Swedish high decorations find a place. At the banquet in Schloss Bellevue however black tie is prescribed. So the honorees will wear the miniature versions of their order: tiny rosettes in their lapels.

Correct. See Beatrix and Máxima at Bellevue, during a black tie banquet:

I expect Queen Silvia with a diadem indeed.

We could hope so, but I doubt it as the Queen was in red yesterday evening.

I'll be very surprised if we see a tiara tonight. But it would be lovely.

What a surprise ! Two tiara appearances and the Baden Fringe, which Queen Silvia had not worn for quite some time.
