In Brazil Mary wore this big (aquamarine?) ring, that I first saw her wear in 2007. Has she worn it since and what's its provenance please?

BTW, this is not the same one as her other impressive aquamarine ring.

What a beautiful modern piece of jewellery! The pearls look fantastic!

Another photo of Princess Mary's solitaire ring from Brazil visit, Sep. 19:



It's interesting that the round stone is actually set in a cushion-cut halo setting. The diamond pave around the stone is not round.

A photo of the bracelets she wore Sep. 16 in Brazil.



There are two Marianne Dulong bangles, a George Jensen bracelet and a chain bracelet with a disk charm. Notice that this disk charm is engraved with her own monogram, M with a crown on top.

Around her neck is the disk pendants she has been wearing. There are two disks on the chain but we only see the engraving on the front, another 'M'.

I like the brooch. Not so sure about the earrings.

The stones in the three drop earrings look more smoky colour than yellow, and the large stones in the brooch look to be near the same colour. Perhaps this is a matching set. The other stones in the brooch look to be dark sapphires. The stem of the brooch is similiar to Marianne Dulongs many designs. Just my observations.

To me, the brooch looks victorian. The earrings look contemporary.

It seemed she can unhook the dangling parts of the necklace

Agreed. I think I actually prefer it this way.

I'm in love with this set. It goes perfectly with the color of the dress.

Now I just wish she'd shorten it. It's a little too widely draped for me. She must be handy with a pair of jewelry pliers though, because she took off the ruby drops from the earrings she wore Friday night at the gala, and replaced them with gray pearls for Saturday's church service.

Oh I hope she never shortens it. I don't think it's suited to being a 'tight' fitted collier. Colliers like these always look best with a little length. They drape so beautifully.

Mary does like to play around with her rubies but it may be time for QMII to loan her another big piece of jewellery so she doesn't wear the same thing at every big event.

I often think that if Mary (or Frederik) stopped acquiring rings and bracelets (most of which are studded with diamonds, precious gems, pearls and gold) that they could quite reasonably purchase at auction a significant tiara before not too long. Something of a late 19th century provenance would be splendid.

I'd not be surprised if some items of jewellery are gifted by various jewellery houses for the Crown Princess' use during her lifetime, but I'm sure that much of the jewellery worn by Mary is privately owned by her as well.

Love that Mary changed this necklace. This parare is so special but so big, this gives her some more options.
