I had not noticed the jewellery on the hat she wore in Monaco, it's beautiful. I love the brooch she wore with the dress too. I have fallen in love with that entire outfit and now want to own the dress and hat, even if I am 25 odd years younger than her! I reckon it's an outfit someone young could pull off! It was just beautiful.

I really like the tiara with the large aquamarine stone. I would like to see her with another tiara that suits her and have her wedding tiara returned to the Royal Vault. I just don't like those three jeweled triangles standing on a wire frame.

What does that tiara look like?

I love the simplicity and versatility of Sophie's jewels. Thanks for sharing the information.

Very good blog, but not a very good tiara. Sigh. I wish the queen would lend her another royal tiara, but there seems no hope.

I much prefer the aquamarine convertible tiara/necklace. It looks beautiful with Sophie's skin and eyes and sits better on her head. No matter how much Sophie tries to hide the wire frame on the wedding tiara, it always looks like three jeweled triangles stuck on a wire.

Sophie's wedding tiara always looks like she has antlers!
My favorite of hers is the aquamarine tiara/neklace!

Which is what it really is!

Perhaps she can put a row of pearls on the base of the tiara, just as Princess Mary of Denmark has done, to cover the wire and give the tiara some additional height.

I have to agree on this one. With all the tiaras and jewels in the Windsor vault, one would think that the wedding tiara would either be replaced or remodelled to form a more elegant and fashionable piece. The tiara with the large aquamarine in the centre does of course look much better on Sophie.

Thank you for this! Sophie doesn't wear grand pieces in general, but I find her choices elegant and delicate most of the times.

I LOVE Sophie's wedding tiara - its so delicate, so beautiful. It went so well with her veil. The tiara looks light, too - not heavy and overwhelming. Perfect for someone like her who had such delicate features on her wedding day. Not that they have changed, of course. :-)

That's what I think.

I quite like Sophie's wedding tiara, but the aquamarine one is definitely beautiful. The diamonds on her wedding diara are stunning but it could be set different, though I am not sure how that could be achieved, or if it even could be. It looks better now that she can wear her hair up with it as opposed to her shorter hair.

I too wish Sophie could wear other tiaras but she is the wife of the youngest son of a Monarch, I don't imagine she'll get much more. I find that annoying though as she is the senior female who the Queen sends to represent her at so many occasions, you'd think one would provide her daughter-in-law with something beautiful. Meh. We just have to make do, as does Sophie, which I think she does beautifully. She's a beautiful woman, she doesn't need diamonds to look better!

I was just wondering, does Sophie own her wedding tiara? Or is it just borrowed? If she owns it does it mean Louise will receive it? I am a bit jealous of Louise as she'll likely inherit Sophie's engagement ring which is to die for.
