I love the ruby parure. I agree with Her_Majesty. When she first wore it, I too thought that the tiara looked too big. In the New Year's photos, it looks perfect, IMO. It gets better with age (if that is even possible)!

When she first wore it the frame showed and it made the large tiara seem to hover a bit--she styles her hair in such a way that the frame no longer shows. It's lovely.
I seem to the be in the minority on the earrings--I adore the large earrings. But, perhaps with the tiara and necklace it is a bit much. Any photos of Mary wearing just the earrings?

I can only echo how much I love the rubies. I just adore the rich colour of those beautiful jewels. They make he rthe star of any event IMO.

It is a quite impressive piece of jewelry! With or without earrings. However the ruby ones suit her to perfection.

They have now also covered the frame with hair in the same colour then Mary's. You can see it in Close-Ups from Joachim and Marie's Wedding

The frame has been covered for the past two or so years.

That would really be perfect. PMary looks radiant, even though this tiara is not my favorite ruby tiara she looks great in it and the rest of the rubies are really stunning!!

I think she'll look resplendent in the emerald parure, myself. The Desiree parure is by all means a magnificant display of craftmanship and HRH has worn it well these past years...the best still awaits however and to see her in Queen Margrethe's diamond floral aigrette (if "you" dont happen to think it to be an aigrette, that's fine, I do so lump it...) with diamond drop earrings, colliers and brooches adorned will be an absolute sight to behold.

Though I'm a firm believer in attire suiting jewellery and visa versa, so alot depends on what evening gown is worn with whichever item of jewellery.

There's an excellent pic of the floral aigrette/tiara/bandeau at the bottom of this post, courtesy of Madame Royale.

That floral aigrette/tiara is really a lovely and interesting piece. Margarethe wears jewels so well, and is an elegant woman to be sure. But, I do wish that she would allow Mary a bit more access to other jewels. I love that ruby parue--it is beautiful--but she needs a more substantial diamond tiara than the one she received for her wedding. In my opinion, not that it means much at all, Mary should have been given the floral tiara as a wedding gift--it is more substantial and has a lovely history. However, at the time of her marriage to Frederik (May 2004) apparently Princess Alexandra and Prince Joachim were getting ready to call it quits and I can understand Margrethe being hesitant about giving a second family tiara away (in light of what had occured with the British Royals as well). Still, the tiara Mary received for her wedding is just so, well, dinky. It's lovely, but it's not exactly on the same level as the one Marie wears. I just think the Crown Princess should have a better diamond tiara than her sister-in-law.

You've certainly got a point,jcbcode99!But I still love this diamond/rubies tiara and I want to add that it seems brandnew,like a masterpiece that has been recently created by Cartier or something.I wonder how much they pay to keep it like that....

Oh, I completely agree about the diamond and ruby parue. It is breathtaking, and with her dark hair Mary looks nothing short of regal and exquisite and gorgeous in it.
For a very nice closeup you can go to the Royal Jewels of the World website:
Royal Jewels of the World Message Board
and the click on the first post of the thread that is called:
Princess Marie of Denmark tiara--this thread has closeups of Mary's ruby tiara, Marie's wedding tiara, and Margrethe's pearl and diamond tiara. And, they are detailed. You can see the settings of the rubies in Mary's tiara.

I think that the floral tiara Marie gets to use is much better than Mary's own diamond wedding tiara. However, Marie is much more girly than mary is. So I think that Tiara suits her well. And we must remember that the tiara is only a loan to Marie. She does not own it. The Queen does. Mary owns her diamond wedding tiara. and if somewhere down the road, God forbid, the marriage disolves, she will keep it. The ruby is a loan and belongs to the Crown Prince. It will stay with the marriage. Marie, to my knowlege does not have any jewels of her own that were given to her by her inlaws. But I would love to see Mary in another tiara. Even if only on certain occassions.

WOW! That is something! It is a pity that Mary doesn't get to play more in the jewels. But the Prince has seen to it that she has a few nice pieces of her own. Lucky for the Dutch, even the lesser Royals get to get their hands on some of the really gorgeous pieces as long as they don't out do the Queen!!
