As much as I try to like this suite (potentially colored sapphires and tourmalines...), I am not a fan of pairing it with the Aquamarine tiara.

I agree. It really needs to be one or the other IMHO.

I love Sophies aquamarine tiara. It's one of my favourite tiaras and together with Madeleine's fringe my favourite modern tiara.

Both aquamarine tiaras she's worn are favorites of mine, but that's also my birthstone so I'm partial. Anyone know the history of the one with the single large aquamarine?

It first appeared on the Countess at the enthronement of Prince Albert of Monaco, and has been used on and off from then. It is rumoured to be from G Collins, and is thought to be a present from HM.

At the Dutch state visit, Sophie wore the five aquamarine tiara.

I love the brooches! But this one is not of my favorites.

The Countess of Wessex is wearing wedding tiara tonight at the SV from President Trump. And guess what? She seems to have changed the base! It looks like there's are row or two of diamonds added. I hope we'll get some better pics of it, as I've gotten a quick glimpse from the live coverage. But my first impression was that this looks so much better than it used to.

Thanks for the pic from the banquet. It seems that the elements also have been rearranged. Some parts must have been removed, so that the three tips are now closer together. The outline is now more triangular, instead of having three peaks.

Well done! I much prefer the new look.

I agree, the new design seems to be a lot nicer. The four separate elements never blended into a unity. The present form looks more harmonious, though we will have to see if that is the case on pictures that are more clear than this one.

Forgive my ignorance but does anybody recognize the necklace and earrings? They look substantial and I can not remember seeing them on the Countess before.

Looks like from the side elements the one flat part at each side has been removed.

Also the base look different ant so a high frame, but the base could also be wrapped with white velvet.

Oh my, I was so focused on the new tiara version that I didn't notice that necklace. It looks really serious, but I don't recognize it.

Do we have a better picture of the necklace?

MUCH better design for the tiara. I can't believe they managed to save that disaster and turned it into a good looking gem.
