It took me quite a while to see that she had on the rubies under that hat. All I saw in most of the pix was the gray pearl.
Do love gray pearls but would have liked either or. And a smaller hat!

I admired the Ruby Parure once again! Such a magnificent set of jewels!

Does Mary have access to other tiaras anyway? She wears the ruby parure the most because it is HERS, a gift to her alone...Maybe all the other stuff she wears are loans (from the Danish crown jewels)...but yes, the purity and clarity of diamonds/pearls may have toned down the effect :)

OK ETA: Looks like Mary only has 3 tiaras at her disposal...her wedding tiara (diamonds and pearls), the rubies (HERS) and the midnight tiara (http://orderofsplendor.blogspot.com....ght-tiara.html) So if was a choice between these three with the same dress and hairstyle...I guess she had to pull out the big guns...Wedding tiara (too small), midnight tiara (too modern and no backstory/historical lineage for such a European royalty event) So ruby parure it is! It has everything: history, hierarchical SIZE and total tiara one-upmanship... Yay Mary!

Mary has no access to crown jewellery. That is reserved alone for the use of a Queen regnant or consort.

The ruby parure technically belongs to Frederik, as were the wishes of the late Queen Mother Ingrid. Mary does not own it but is permitted sole use of it as consort of the Crown Prince.

Of the three listed options in the above post, only her wedding tiara is her personal property.

Tonight, Mary wore a stunning choker and the pearl version of her wedding tiara. Hopefully, we will get closer pictures!

I'm starting to like this tiara the more I see it. Maybe because it's displayed so beautifully against the height of her hair. And that aquamarine (?) pearl choker is just stunning.

The moment I saw the pearl version of the wedding tiara for the first time I thought: this should be worn with the aquamarine choker! Now I got my wish and Mary looked stunning. Now I just want to see the aquamarine girandole earrings with it as well.

Simply divine. The two pieces go together quite nicely.

Peral version of wedding tiara is lovely here - it definitely adds more weight to the tiara. Adore the aquamarine choker on Mary

Perfection. Can't get enough of that choker. Her hair is done perfectly for the tiara.

Here's a clar of Mary's jewels from the gala dinner for visiting president of Slovakia. Besides the tiara, choker and ring she's wearing some pretty bangles and bracelets

Thank you for the pictures! Mary's choices of jewels are prefect for the gown.

Oct. 24 At the return dinner hosted by the Slovakian President, Princess Mary wears a new pair of earrings: green onyx surrounded by brown diamonds.

I definitely like the combination of the wedding tiara with pearls and this choker. AND - I like that she is still playing around with her jewelry.

Thanks for the pictures. That choker is very beautiful. On another note, I feel that Mary's wedding tiara is more suitable for Marie and, Marie's wedding tiara is more suitable for Mary. Just a thought!

I love the color on her. I always like Mary in blue. Not quite as much as I like her in rich reds, but I still think she looks great in that dress. And it shows off her jewelry beautifully.

I particularly love that pearl and aquamarine choker with her wedding tiara. They're such pretty pieces. It's nice to see them in use.
