I think it would be wonderful if the hairpiece can be worn different ways. It would look great as choker on velvet and it would be a nice option to the huge necklace. It would also be a beautiful alternate brooch. Cant wait to see what Mary pulls out this next week for all her formal recetions.....Aquamarines....please!~!

That was my first thought as well when I saw the hair piece. The necklace is so impressive that a smalle hair ornament than the tiara might really make the necklace stand out.

To me it looks like it is not but three hairpeaces the hairspins from the LÖeuchtenberg sapphire Parure. But yesterday they where placed next to eachother. I think it would look even better if she would place it in the back of her hairdoo like Queen Silvia does it. Yesterday it looked a bit strange as they where only on side.

Wonder why she doesn't wear necklace in different ways. It looks lice it would be easy to remove either all or some of the hanging ruby pendants so she could wear it in different ways like for example with no pendants or only a few of them.

I'm hoping we get to see this happen during the Jubilee celebrations. I also think the black pearls don't look right with the parure - the white pearls were better. And I hope the extra tiara pieces have alot of versatilty to them (ie not just hair ornaments).

Somehow i find the pearkls not neccessary as there are no pearls in the tiara and other parts of the parure. I thinks she should find a middle version for the Earrings. In the original Version they are very big and the new Version without pearl is too small.

I agree that the earrings would have been better without the Tahitian pearl drops; the same goes for the brooch. If she was going to wear pearls, white ones would have been more suitable and less stark. But in any case, pearls don't match the jewels in the parure so would have been better not added. And as stunning as the chandelier earrings are, they would have been too OTT with the ornate order around her neck. So Mary probably wanted to wear the stud portion of the earrings with the pearl drops to minimize the look. A smaller ruby drop would have looked better, IMO.

When wearing the Desiree Tiara I think her original earrings look terrific but if she wished I am sure she could pare them down a little.

The little studs are far to small to small to wear on their own and, I have it admit, that whilst they don't look like a train wreck with cream pearls, no pearls would look far superior. Perhaps adding a dangling ruby (a la Diana's sapphires) would be an option.

The pearl additions could be kept to wear on those occasions when tiara's are not required.

I like the Tahitian pearls. They are exotic and distinctive.

I think most of us agree. It's just a matter of mixing them with the rubies that is being questioned.

I do love pearls and adore seeing the gorgeous ones worn by the royal ladies, but certainly with the right mixture of jewels to achieve the proper effect and display. Mary is innovative with her use of jewelry, but I didn't care for the pearls in this case. Small ruby drops attached to the studs would have looked better, IMO.

I love that combination. The dark pearls are a nice contrast.

The earrings are ruined by adding the grayish pearls which don't look nice at all with the set. It would've been lovely if there was a diamond or a ruby drop instead.

I'm joining those of the opinion that the grey pearls were out of place, seemed off to me too!

I am going against the general opinion...I loved the combination. She looked fantastic to me and I love how Crown Princess Mary is being very creative with the ruby parure. Instead of seeing the same old...same old...she is surprising us with something new. There would not have been this much discussion if she wore the same original parure.

I like the way Mary has changed her tiara and I like the way she's made it more versatile with more combinations from the pieces.

One ruby dangle instead of the whole chandelier? I like it!

Yes its new but IMO she changed it to the worse, the original is far more nicer. As for the earrings after looking at the original again, she could've left the ruby and diamond small piece dangling and removing the bigger pieces. Perals are lovely but not with this set, adding the pearls just makes it messy. Pearls and diamonds left alone work very nice.
