You are right, the tiara came from Countess Gunilla's own family, not from her husband's side of the family. It's a pity that the heirs won't keep it, but I assume that they have no occasion to wear such a jewel.

Hey all I've a got question about the sapphire demi parure Princess Birgitta inherited from Princess Siybilla.
For the royal wedding in 2011 she wore the necklace and earrings from the set
http://www.hant.se/wp-content/upload...54-650x515.jpg
However for the banquet she a wore a set of diamond earrings
https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com...85e18aa596.jpg

Of course I dont expect you to know why she changed them but I do remember her playing with one of them on the walk from the Royal Palace to the great cathedral
Could it be that she might've lost one?
Shes only worn the set once since then, at the royal wedding in 2013 and even for that outing she did not wear the sapphire earrings but a pair of diamond ones

I know that this will more or less remain a mystery but I thought it rather interesting so I posted it here

When I saw twice Bettina's small tiara , I thought to her Grandfather who married a Grand Duchess of Russia.

By accident I found this video on Youtube on European Royal Jewels:

(from 14:40 - in Swedish)

But that is not that main point.The expert Jan Erkinantti argues that Queen Josephine's Pearl necklace, with pendant pearl drops, were the pearls that could replace the sapphires in the Leuchtenberg Sapphire Tiara.

I don't know if this is true or not, and I don't know the story of the necklace that well to know if we haven't seen the tiara in the pearl version since the necklace left the main line.

hi all :) this is a very interesting thread indeed!
i've learned to recognise almost all of the 'swedish' tiaras and it's amazing.

but here are two that i've googled and googled about and found nothing. does anyone know what tiaras these are? perhaps it's private property but it's still interesting.

first is count estelle bernadotte:




and second is karin bernadotte.



crossing fingers :) thankyou!

A beautiful picture of Countess Jill at Carl Philip and Sofia's wedding in 2015 wearing Countess Estelle's diamond tiara and an interesting set of diamonds and aquamarines. Also note the miniature of Carl XIV Johan - Link

Imo, it would work better as a tiara if the "amethysts" would turn around for 90 degrees.

The diamond bandeau has only ever been seen on Countess Estelle Bernadotte. It looks like a convertible bracelet to me.

The tiara of Countess Karin has never been seen publicly again. It's probably sold or was a loan in the first place, if you ask me.
