Non of Desirée's daughter-in-law wore it at their weddings, which I find quite disappointing. I think it is unlikely that they will wear the tiara in whatever style in the future. Even when Princess Desirée borrowed other tiaras for the royal weddings, it wasn't worn by her daughter or daughters-in-law.

For her last three tiara events, the 3 royal weddings, she wore borrowed tiaras: the amethyst for Victoria's wedding and the cut steel for the two other weddings.

Its a pity that Princess Desiree, Baroness Silfverschiold doesn't attend the Nobel Ceremony otherwise we might see this tiara a little more.

Here is Princess Desiree at the Nobels in 1987, and here at a dinner in 1994. So she used to attend official events in the decades after the wedding. I wonder when and why did she stop?

Princess Désirée doesn't seem to be too impressed by royal life, she prefers living in the country. I don't think she's shy as princess Margaretha, but that she prefers a more private life. She has once said that "there are sometimes too much fawning over the royal family", see this article about her: Prinsessan smakfull står inte i rampljuset | Dokument | Expressen My guess is that she stopped attending royal events when Victoria and later Madeleine became old enough to take part, she probably felt there were younger princesses who could take over those duties.

Princess Désirée will probably find happiness in living the life of a countryside aristocrat and being the châtelaine of the two estates of her spouse. See the beautiful Koberg Castle and the equally beautiful Gasevadholm House. Not everyone likes being in public attendance all the time.

It looks awfully good as a necklace, really impressive. Now, if you imagine the rich purple colour, it must be a real stunner. They say that it's heavy and unpleasant to wear, but the look is great.

Btw, that 1960's hair looks well with the four buttons tiara. With a backdrop of hair it doesn't look so much like Mickey Mouse ears.

It really is a pity that the don't wear it as necklace from time to time. It could probably also be shortned by removing 1 or 2 of the amethysts.
As for the four-button tiaras it looked even better when it was worn by Princesses Margaretha, Birgitta and Désirée in the early 1960's because the managed to hide the ugly metall frame in their hair.

If the necklace can really be shortened, then they should order a new and smaller tiara frame. The diameter is too wide, imho, it would fit much better if it were a bit smaller.

That pic is amazing! It is rare that the mags publish such high resolution pics of lesser known people. I once read that the tiara was a gift from Prince Wilhelm to his daughter-in-law Karin.

Countess Sandra Bernadotte's Bracelet-Tiara:
Countess Sandra Bernadotte (worn for her wedding reception and for CP Victoria's wedding)

*Countess Marianne Bernadotte's tiaras (at least two - one pearl and one diamond and yellow gold) are not included with this list because most reports are that they were brought into the marriage to Sigvard by her.

**Countess Madeleine Bernadotte's tiara worn for CP Victoria's wedding is not included in this list. It has been referred to as the von Rosen tiara, a possession of the family of Prince Carl's first wife, Elsa von Rosen, and borrowed by Madeleine for this event.

***There are some items missing from the list (The Bernadotte Diamond Earrings, some of the diamond brooches, bracelets, etc) because I am still researching them and/or they don't have a "name". Please feel free to add or if you have information you would like to share about these or any other pieces, I will be asking questions about specific pieces when I can.

For now, hope this list helps any others. Have a great day, happy hunting, and I hope we can all discover a great deal together.[/QUOTE]

On the RJOTWMB Claes once posted that he had actually seen a photo of CP Margaret wearing the aquamarine tiara and that he also has information about the jeweller and the number of diamonds. But this photo is not public and it seems that Claes has confidential information that he is not free to share. Let's hope that this phote will be published one day.
