I agree about the side elements being shortened.
The base has always been covered by velvet where it sits on the head. But out of that came a wire frame that raised the tiara by an inch or more. I can't say if the base has been lowered or not. But there are two rows of diamonds between the velvet base and the diamond elements.

Isn't that one of the Queen's saudi-arabian necklaces? Sophie also wore one of them at the swedish Royal wedding in 2010.

We may have a winner, it looks very similar. This is the one worn in Sweden.

Well done! I much prefer the new look.
Finally!!!
I have always felt that the basic elements were good, but the execution was horrible. The old base was particularly

Considering Sophie’s dinner companion I hope we get more photos.

It is always difficult to tell without a good photo of jewels. I agree with you Stefan on the necklace. It is a lace design and is an Arab necklace, however after all these years we still don't have a good provence on it. It is a substantial piece and I am very pleased to see Sophie wearing it.

I wonder if Sophie's tiara was hastily put together for her wedding and now it has had a proper remodeling and looks so much better.

The redo is an improvement to be sure. I wish Sophie got better loans from HM.

Well done for Princess Sophie to have reset her hideous and odd-looking monstrosity of a wedding tiara. This reset looks good from a distance. I'm also glad to see her in ice borrowed from the Queen because I criticize the Queen for not pooling the rocks more.

Her wedding tiara, IIRC, was designed by Prince Edward...so that's not the fault of The Queen.

Love the redesign of the tiara. It was always an odd tiara, IMO.

I always thought they sat boy-girl-boy-girl but The Countess of Wessex is seating next to Ivanka.

I didn't expect the anything new from this banquet and expected it would be a whole big meh to me, but BOOM! Sophie took out her new tiara

I love the alternation and upgrade. Taller and shorter now, the whole look is simply regal.

And I loathe that we never have a better photo of her.

Omg, so much better! This is how that tiara is meant to be!

With this change, I prefer this over the aquamarine tiara. It seems HM is being more generous with the jewels.
