I really like the apparent reworking of the tiara that gives it extra height but my eye is drawn to the gap on it's left side (right side of photo) and I have the urge to just move them a fraction. Such a minor thing as it's such a beautiful piece of jewellery.

First Look: New Year Tiaras in Denmark | The Court Jeweller

The ruby tiara is a tiara that is always delightful to see.

So far I don't like the rework of the ruby parure tiara, like previously mentioned, there is a very obvious gap close to the centre. I hope the court jewelers take notice and hurry back to fix it.

This tiara is such a substantial piece. Personally I prefer a more upright positioning compared to a headband style.

Hi, Duc, that was my immediate impression, too..... more pointy Tiara rather than the very round version since CP Mary adapted it.
I like that much more - it gives the Tiara more Grandezza and makes it look even bigger!

The "gap" does not disturb me. It is a natural design of leafs. Plants never grown symmetric.

Not sure this is the right forum to ask about the order and the chain that holds it...how heavy is the piece?

The new rework of the tiara seems an improvement, imo. The former dent in the middle of the tiara looked rather unbalanced to me. Though, with that strange new whole, the distribution of the leaves is still not perfect. But it is a gorgeous tiara of great beauty and a grand history. It's always a pleasure to see it worn.

Btw, I loved to see the grand version of the earrings again! How nice, that they are so versatile.

I liked the original setting of the tiara but I understand the shape did not sit well on Mary's head and it was too long, having been designed at a time when women wore fabulous, voluminous updos.

The resulting tiara really disappointed me as it did away with a lot of the natural leaf and berry look and made it more of a solid headband than a tiara. On the pro side, it did create wonderful hairpins that are elegant enough to be worn with a modified matching earring configuration.

If it has been titivated yet again, I would love to see a before and after such as this one for the original change;

At Henrik’s funeral Mary wore the pearl necklace he gave her as an engagement/wedding gift

Mary appears to have on a new (to me!) pair of earrings with sapphire drops at the balcony appearance for Fred's 50th birthday

So, can we now safely assume Mary has retired her wedding tiara ?

In the sea of glitz and glam, the (on itself nice) necklace tiara lacked any sparkle. I don't know why the gemstones did not sparkle, but it was remarkable.

They never have. They are old cut stones, and Isuspect of not very good quality.

I was about 3 m from them, with a clear view of them just before their chariot drove into the gate at Christiansborg and you're right there was no sparkle in the tiara at all. Huge contrast to the Greek ladies who's tiaras sparkled so much that we could see them 100 m away.

I think, it is not only old cut diamonds, but even rose cut diamonds.... and they do not have enough facets to really sparkle....

The price tag of the tiara has been all over the internet, since someone found out the tiara at an auction. It's common knowledge that it was not an expensive tiara, so of course the stones can't be of high quality. But yet the tiara is of a beautiful design and suits Mary's style perfectly.
