To date, the ruby tiara has been worn by Princess Mary 12 times:
2 before wedding
5 for New Year's Banquets (2006-2010)
1 Joachim & Marie's wedding
1 QMII's 70th birthday
1 Victoria & Daniel's wedding
2 for official portraits

This ruby ring only showed up for Victoria & Daniel's wedding. So if she has worn this ring before, it was definitely NOT with the ruby parure/tiara. (Even Queen Ingrid, who wore the whole parure in official portraits, didn't wear a ruby ring.)

Perhaps you are thinking of her diamond and amethyst ring.

No, I'm not. I'm pretty sure I've seen her wear the ring before, even if she wasn't wearing the parure at the time. The point of my post was that I didn't think the ring was new, as some people have speculated.

Lovely as the ring is, its hardly going to be very expensive - so she may well have bought it, to wear not just at the Swedish wedding, but subsequently as well.

She could have worn it, and not with the Parue. Just because it is ruby, does not mean it has to be worn with the Parue.

I was looking at some older pics of P Mary and was wondering if anyone has a good pic of the black and white pearl necklace with the clasp in front. It looks to be a sapphire but I need a better pic....anyone?

Thats not a 'black and white' pearl necklace...

I think rubies may be refering to the two strand cultured pearl necklace that is widely considered to have been an engagement gift from Prince Henrik.

Well I managed to match white pearls and the sapphire in the middle.

This one?

It's strange I've been trying to find a better photo from the engagement dinner and the best one is the one Lumutqueen has posted. I thought that the dinner would have had more coverage.

I know I searched for hours the other day to find a picture of the her walking in to the dinner and couldn't find one. There isn't a thread dedicated to the dinner either, and I don't think she has worn the necklace since.

It's a pity I would have liked to see that necklace better.

She wore the black and white pearl necklace again on a reception for her patronages, January 5, 2006.

Thanks. But it doesn't have the clasp this time. Mary has a lot of pearls doesn't she?

Unless the clasp us meant to be at the back and the first time she wore it, she got it the wrong way round?
Btw, is your profile picture of Queen Sofia a waxwork?

Maybe the necklace can be wore in the two ways. If she did made a mistake with her necklace, that must have been embarrasing, her first official dinner and she puts her necklace the wrong way

Well considering the little amount of pictures that were taken, I don't think anyone would notice.
Plus it is easy for the clasp of a necklace to slip round to the front.

Imo it looked fine, I would not have said that she put it the wrong way, but if she really did a mistake I suppose that she felt a bit embarrased afterwards even if no one noticed, at least I would.
