Beautiful jewels
What is the diamond ring Mary wears sometimes on her right hand - you can see it in the official pictures

Personally, I have mixed feelings about the Ruby Pararue. I find the larger version of the earrings to be overwhelming when combined with the necklace and tiara. I liked how CP Mary wore the tiara and smaller version of the earrings at Prince Joachim's wedding to Princess Marie.

ruby parure and blue dress don't match together, sapphires would have been better with a blue dress and rubies better with silver or red dress, it's just my opinion
i think Mary is very nice here, but she has a bit of a jewelry overload, ruby tiara, ruby earrings and ruby necklace...
I like Marie's elegant simplicity

I love to see Mary totally decked out in the parure! it doesnt happen very often (as has been noted, she will only wear part of the earrings, or she'll leave off the necklace) but I think that this was a great occassion to wear the whole thing.

i would love to see Mary wear a set of sapphires with this blue (or any other blue) dress

The earrings can be overwhelming at times but in an official picture they look great and befit her status as crown princess

Personally, I think her aquamarine earrings and wedding tiara would have been spectacular with her dress. However, word may have come down from higher up that ladies should wear their finest jewelry along with the Order of The Elephant. For CP Mary this would mean the entire Ruby Pararue on full display.

Well, if you have it, flaunt it! Her ruby parure is one of the most pretty ones around (together with Queen Silvia's sapphires IMO) and she does wear it so well. But then I don't see the problem in being bedecked with jewelry in Queen Mary style, the more the merrier so if I had it my way I would add even more jewels. And since my own flag has is red-white-blue, I don't have a problem with the colour combination .

The other thing is that I think Mary has already worn her wedding tiara with this dress, whereas this is the first time I recall her wearing it with the parure. Just more food for thought.

I loved the rubies with the red engagement dress but do have mixed feelings about the whole thing since then ..... however I should be so lucky to wear or need to decide whether I liked such an historic set.

Is there a sapphire parure for her to wear? I do not ever remember seeing one.

I call it the 'Princess Isabella christening ring' since she wore it the first time at this event. Five graduated round diamonds (3 larger stones in the and 2 small ones on the side) in between a split shank set with diamonds.

No. The Queen has a beautful set of saphhire jewellry consisting of a necklace and brooches (don't know about earrings) but there is not sapphire-tiara.

i'm sorry, my english is bad, so it's complicated for me to give my point of vue
i don't know if CP Mary has sapphires, but, i think it's always better to coordinate color of dress with color of jewels, it's better also to coordinate heavy and thick fabric with heavy jewels. This dress is beautiful but seems "cheap" compared to the parure, color doesn't match with rubis color and it's a lot too fluid to be weared with this kind of jewels
I would have preferred this

As does mine, but I'm not so enthusiastic..

It would have to be, in my opinion, one of the least flattering evening gowns owned by the Crown Princess. It looks cheap (though we all know it isn't) and the detailing provides a costume like appearance. That I should very much dislike the colour blue, only added to the sigh that ensued upon viewing the portraits for the first time.

Beautiful use of jewellery, and pinning the parure brooch to the centre of the bodice would have added a nice touch, also. Perhaps next time...

Yes. Too bad she has no sapphire tiara to wear with it.

I have to agree with many of you, I'm not crazy about the ruby suite with the blue dress, I prefer the rubies with a red, silver or black dress. Although I think that her wedding tiara would have been too small for this official portraits. I would have loved to have seen her in a new red or silver dress with the rubies.

I agree with all of you about the dress. Not my favorite. Diamonds or pearls or the aquamarines would have made the dress look better. I do love the jewels though!!!

I do enjoy seeing the full ruby parue make an outing. It is an amazing set of jewels.
