How intriguing! They indeed look identical, though one never knows if the jeweler manufactured a series of jewels with this design or if it is unique piece. At least I would say that it is probably the same tiara. And definitely we have to get new name for the tiara, as these pics prove that Madeleine’s tiara is not a modern design. And I don’t like to call it fringe either, it looks more like stylized fleur-de-lys to me.

Looks like a good match to mee. I've never thought about this tiara as a modern piece. The only way it is "modern" is because King Carl Gustaf is probably the first owner of it in the swedish royal house.

Next project should be to find the origin of Princess Sofia's emerald and diamond tiara. I don't think that's a new piece either.

Someone in glittering jewels board posted this link with a letter dated 1911:

https://www.liveauctioneers.com/item...ara-exhibition

It's about Countess of Tankerville and a "stolen" coronation tiara.

And this Dowager Countess of Tankerville,mentioned in this letter,was aunt of Sir Alexander Ramsay of Mar,whose sister in law was Crown Princess Margaret of Sweden,so there could be some connection.

So the plot thickens. It is imaginable that Lady Patricia Ramsey's descendents mediated the private sale.

I assume that this
Quote:
stolen by the present Dowager Lady Tankerville and formed a small part of the general plunder of this house
meands that the loving family were quarelling about their assets, and dear mummy-in-law took all the jewels with her, when moving to the dower house. (I could just picture the dowager countess of Grantham doing that. )

As far as that particular tiara is concerned it could very well have belonged to her privately in much the same way as Camilla's floral tiara is hers through her family or any personal gifts from her husband. They are hers to dispose of.

Somehow I cannot imagine CG owning anything with dubious provenance, particularly something that was intended to be frequently in the public eye.

I believe that the Countess of Tankerville refers in her letter to a family quarrel over the jewels, with the dowager Countess not wanting to hand over the jewels to her daughter-in-law, who was the current Countess. The way it was phrased it seems not to refer to a burglary or something like that.

So the ownership of the tiara can't really be called 'dubious', as this quarrel must have been resolved about a century ago. And all the people involved in this quarrels were long dead at the time when the King (hypthetically) acquired this tiara.

(Pictures cropped to less than 20% of the orignal version.)
Looking at the photos again, I'm not convinced that the top right photo shows the same bracelet. Maybe it's the light and angle, but it looks to me that this jewel is set with oval coloured stones in diamond clusters with X-like links between them. Any opinions?

About the bracelet again - I just came across this photo from Victoria and Daniel's wedding and I'm almost sure that Princess Birgitta's wearing the bracelet in the picture.

It was gifted to Princess Birgitta as a wedding present and I believe the last time she wore it was at Victoria and Daniels wedding

I never looked closely at Princess Birgitta's bracelet before, so thank you for the link. It has often been speculated that the bracelet was among the jewels that were once stolen from the Princess. So luckily that's not the case. But it's a pity that her daughter's-in-law never wore it as a bandeau at the big Swedish tiara events. Only her daughter Desiree ever wears a tiara, the pearl circlet tiara that was a wedding gift.

Looking closely at the bandeaus in the collage I understand what you mean about the bandeau at the right top. But it could be a trick of the light, and the photo is far from clear. Or is there a bracelet in the family with large oval stones and a kind of cross-motive in-between?

Other items

Don't know if these have a name, so I am giving them a name and, for clarity describing the event as needed:

Mainau Cuff-Link Fringe Tiara:
Countess Sonja Bernadotte, Countess Bettina Bernadotte, Countess Sandra Bernadotte (worn for her wedding)

Mainau Diamond & Gemstone Swag-Fringe Tiara:
Countess Karin Bernadotte, Countess Bettina Bernadotte (worn for CP Victoria's wedding - it looks to be set with amethyst, citrine, and sapphire stones at the top of the spikes)

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
