The storry about Princesse Alexandras tiara is following:

This tiara goes by the name Queen Alexandrine's diamond drop tiara.
It was Queen Alexandrine who brought this with her to Denmark, and in the arches of the tiara are hanging diamond drops.
It was made around the turn of the last century. Princess Alexandra got the right to use it from Queen Margrethe, who received this tiara as a 18th birthday present.

I got this info from : www.geocities.com/slaikjaer/alexandra1.html:)

I'm only guessing, but I think the tiara would eventually be passed on to Nikolai or Felix's wife. I think Alex will have use of it, perhaps even after she remarries (because she's the mother of the Danish princes) but I don't think she "owns" it completely. I don't think Mary "owns" the ruby parure either.

I'm going to disagree with the ruby parure. It was given to Frederick as inheritance from Queen Ingrid. Queen Margarethe I don't think ever owned the collection, but rather, was her mother's. Since the parure was given to Frederick, he's free to give it to his wife.

Again, I still think Alexandra personally owns the tiara that she was given. It would be in bad form of the Queen to take back something that she had given as a wedding present.

Alexandra is still Her Highness and has a right to a tiara for official events. Queen Margarethe has probably stipulated that if Alexandra remarries or dies without remarriage, the tiara reverts back to the Danish Jewels.

Sarah, Duchess of York still has her tiara!! That tiara will probably go to Beatrice as she is her elder daughter.

Sarah still has her tiara because HM the Queen had it commisioned from Garrard's. It was new and did not have a royal provenance. Besides, HM has a plethora of jewels to choose from. Jewel and tiara poor she is not!

I would say(JMO) that Alexandra will have the use of the tiara for life. Her son may inherit the tiara or it could revert back to the crown since it does have a lengthy royal provenance.
As for Mary and the rubies. They may be Fred's property, but should there be a divorce, I would bet anyone that those jewels will not go to Australia!

I doubt that Mary would return permanently to Australia anyway. Her children will have to remain in Denmark and I doubt she would relinquish custody to Fred! Anyway, I can't see it happening, I think that Fred & Mary are one of the true love matches as well as Felipe & Letizia.

I would like to think that both couples are true love matches, but only time will tell. Alot of couples, common and royal start out with the best of intentions and end up divorced. I think that many people thought that Alex and Joachim were madly in love.

I would like to know what that jewellery is exactly. I just guess it is a two traditional little trumpets (horns?) gold brooch or little pin.

That sounds like a reasonable explanation. I think that it was most likely given to her by Joachim. Alex could have owned it for several months before she and Joachim even thought about separating for divorcing.

Her father is Chinese & her mother Austrian.

I read that her father is half chinese, so it makes Alexandra 1/4 oriental, but she has, more than her sisters the oriental features, she is beautiful IMO
