I agree. Dulong's jewelry is classic an modern at the same time.

I'm a bit disappointed that we do not see more of the gorgeous Georg Jensen silver jewellery Mary wore at the couple's visit to Germany 3 (?) years ago.
It is beyond beautiful IMO

Do you think that it is perhaps a loan?

In this thread there are links to multitudes of pictures of CP Mary from the Culture Awards this year, and I have to say that I think her earrings are truely stunning!
They are the perfect compliment for her dress. So is the lack of a necklace, IMO.

I'm not sure if it has ever been confirmed, but I thought HRH The Prince Consort gave the suite to Mary as a gift. Well, at least that was the talk at the time if I recall rightly.

Not certain though...

A few people related the grapes jewelry to Prince Henrik's winery but I don't think anyone really knows who gave her or possibly loaned her this set. When Princess Mary wore the necklace and earrings, the set itself was already vintage and wasn't available for sale at Georg Jensen stores because it was a past collection. But my rule of thumb for Princess Mary's jewels is: If she wears it once, it could be a loan. If she wears it more than once, it's hers.

You may very well be right ayvee - then we can only hope that the Georg Jensen company will do the right thing and present a set of these beautiful vintage jewellery to the country's crown princess

The nice thing is that Mary "wears" the jewelry - the jewelry doesn't wear her ---
she always looks great -

The Georg Jensen grape jewelry has only been worn once in Germany. The Georg Jensen Cave collection and Savannah collection have been worn several times.

Grape jewelry

I cannot find a picture of the "grape jewelry". I have never heard of it until I read this thread. Could someone post a picture of it, or send a link that I can open. It sounds beautiful. Thanks.

Thank you. I was expecting purple stones, no wonder I couldn't find it. Passed up these pictures. But this is a beautiful set too.

It is, isn't it You can see a few other examples of vintage Georg Jensen silver jewellery here GEORG JENSEN (GEORGE JENSEN) JEWELRY NECKLACES AND PENDANTS, NEW YORK - and an example of a lapis lapzuli pendant.

I was expecting purple stones too! This is pretty, but not at all what I was expecting.

You're very welcome Mrsbugman. I find most of Georg Jensen's vintage items extremely gorgeous and I think it is so very befitting that a Danish CP should have some Georg Jensen jewellery; it is a very old company, established in 1904, and one of the late queen Ingrid's brothers, Sigvard, made designs for Georg Jensen.

I think Mary should have this to keep her earrings in http://www.ascasonline.org/jensen2101bis.jpg

No it wouldnt be what a lot of people were expecting.
I remember thinking at the time that it was a surprising choice for the event (quite modern) but I loved it (still do) and think it looks great!

Wow, gorgeous set and very distinctive.

Is much of her jewelry loaned?
