I was just coming in to say they look more like amethysts but in this picture the hair clips are definitely part of the ruby parure.

I have never understood why Mary doesn't use her rubies more like this. But I won't complain, I'll just be glad she did!!

Mary has a so many jewellery pieces I adore. I love the way she used the rubies this evening.

Probably because there are people who still feel she should never have made any changes to the ruby parure, even though she had the support of her husband and mother in law, and wear it only as Queen Ingrid wore it.

Perfection! She looks wonderful with that soft pink dress and the rubies. And the hair brooches are simply beautiful in her elegant coiffure... drool
As much as I love to see the rubies, I think it's wise of her to use them sparingly. Besides it's already the 3rd time that she uses the ruby hair pins this year. It looks like they might become a favourite of hers.
And hey Fred, why don't you get your wife a nice diamond and aquamarine hair pin? How stunning could that be with the chandeliers and choker?!

Mixed-up posts! I was actually referring to the earrings Mary wore with the deep plum daytime dress she wore at a prior event, and thinking they were amethysts. The jewels she wore at the Korean dinner are definitely from her ruby parure, and I just love the clips in her hair. I'm glad she's getting such versatility from the set; this way she can wear them more often.

Confusion on both our parts then.

Back view of the clips in her hair...lovely

Also, a look at her pearl earrings from today's appearance at the opening of 2012 Yeosu Expo.

Have loved all the jewelry she's worn so far but the ruby and diamonds and especially the hair clips are my favourites.

Those hair clips are stunning. I would love to see them worn as brooches also. I love the pearl earrings from tonight also!

Mary seems to be wearing that large diamond ring on right hand I have been noticing since her 40th. Can anyone work there picture magic and get a good close up?

I just noticed the same and was wondering about that BIG ring
Love all her earrings on this trip.
A few more necklaces would have been nice.

I'm not too crazy about the style of her updo, but those ruby hairpins just look so beautiful against her dark hair.

I rather like the ruby hairpieces; they look very beautiful.
The hairstyle is not spectacular (as some of heir previous ones), but not bad either.

rubies & Frelinghighness - I, too, am wondering about the diamond ring that Mary has been wearing on her right hand while in South Korea. Does anyone know anything about it and are there any closeup (HQ) pictures available? It looks like it will be a stunning piece.

Mary has been wearing the ring for several months but there never seems to be a great picture to get a close up!
