Thank you SO much for the info and the images. They looked a little yellow in some of the images to me. The gown looks light pink in some of the older images, but not yesterday's. I could see now that the earrings and gown are a very faint pink/gray. They are wonderful earrings.

Can you tell me about the stone in the pendant? Is it a diamond or a topaz?

The pave bracelet she has worn before on numerous occasions. Here it is being worn in Iceland:

The one with round diamond stones is new.

I truly have no clue what kind of stone it is. All I know is they are light pink in color.

The very first time she wore this pendant was April 1, 2005 at the Hans Christian Andersen Gala:

Maybe Fredrick did come through with a nice gift of a diamond bracelet....!!! I am sticking to my original opinion that the stone in the earrings and pendant is morganite!!!hehe (thanks for the pic)

Those are so pretty! Very delicate and elegant. What stones are the pink ones? Pink shappires, maybe? I love the pendant, especially! Love the fact Mary has chosen a delicate chain to go with the pendant, perfect choice!

Same jewelry as the pre-wedding concert in Stockholm.

Does anyone knows what will happen to Her Highness Princess Elisabeth and Countess Sussie's tiaras when they die? Foregive me for asking (I hope they will live many years yet) I am just wondering since none of them have any children.

That's a good question! Since it's private property they can do what they want! I'd imagine that Princess Elisabeth would bequeath her jewellery to her three nieces. There's just one snag: Considering the few invitations they've had to royal events so far they wont have much use for tiaras in the future! However they could choose to sell.....

As for the jewellery of countess Sussie: I don't know what to think, to be honest!
If Ingolf decide to let bygones be bygones he could graciously bequeath the jewellery to the main line of the family. However I don't blame him if he doesn't!

Could be pink sapphires, but AFAIK they're very expensive in this size! Another possibility is Kunzite, a beautiful pinkish but brittle stone, which works nicely for pendants and ear rings, but not for rings.

It's nice to see that the pearls were not permanantly fixed to the tiara! So it's still a flexible piece. I'd like to see the pearl version with her pearl and aquamarine choker one day!

To be honest, I can't unerstand why people would have thought the alterations were permanent in the first place?

It makes no sense that Mary would have sought to have altered the design of her bridal tiara in a way that could not be reversed.

I highly doubt Mary will ever alter an item of jewellery if the process is unable to be corrected. HRH seems to respect the integrity of the jewellery she wears

I didn't really believe that the tiara was changed permanantly. But we couldn't be sure of it until we saw the old version again, could we?
CP Mary did change her ruby tiara permanently. Of course a jeweller could change it back to the original state, but it needs more than unscrewing a couple of elements.

If such changes can be reversed, then it is not a permanent alteration. No matter the unscrewing and re-attaching required, nor the length of time the modification remains. Only if the elements are fixed into position, thus serving only one purpose, can it then be considered permanent.

But if the the elements are fixed permanently and thus "thus serving only one purpose", a jewellery could still take it apart and fix them in another way. Thus the orignal state could be requeated. The skills and techniques of a jeweller make it possible to change and change back all pieces of jewellery. But this would require brazing and a lot of work.
The difference in flexible jewellery is that they come with screw, fixings, hinges or whatever so that they easily and quickly can be changed.
I hope I explained myself better this time.

I understood you fine..haha.

I collect antique jewellery myself and infact, my sister in-law is a jeweller. I understand what you're saying and yes, a jeweller can change whatever piece of jewellery they wish as long as they have the means and techniques to do so, but, a piece of jewellery that is altered back and forth cannot be considered a permanent alteration.

If a fixed element on a solid setting is removed or modified, that then becomes invasive to the initial composition resulting in the structure's physical change. Any change made possible post that initital moficiation then makes that change permanent to the orginal setting and versitile to any future changes that take place.

As the ruby parure didn't actually consist of a tiara in the beginning, it can't actually be considered a permanent change because the tiara has been fashioned and altered with each new generation to suit their particular needs. It is versitile and has been since it's creation.

In any case, the wedding tiara is a lovely and delicate tiara and looks best in it's orginal form. I didn't mind it with the pearls, as temporary change can be good, but it's orginal setting really is something special.

Anyway, I don't wish to hijack a thread on the technicality of it. Thanks for your responses, Tilla :)
