And finally a good close-up of Mary's tiara tonight

IT IS the necklace from Margrethe's birthday in Århus last year.

So stunning on Mary. Great to finally see a new tiara on Mary.

The tiara is stunning, looks beautiful on her. It was great as a necklace, but people were right back then, makes an amazing tiara. Much better than her Jolly Rodger tiara from her wedding.

Maybe that's what it is to you, but that was the tiara she wore the day she got married to the man she loves and it was a present from her parents-in-law to be. I am pretty sure she loves that tiara.

Yes, that is my Opinion. I was under the impression this was a discussion board for discussing our Opinions on jewels. I certainly am not the first person to call her wedding tiara 'skull and cross bones'. I see plenty of criticism for other tiaras, certainly Sofia's wedding tiara, Maddie and Victoria's starter tiaras, and many others.

I have no doubt Mary appreciates the tiara her in laws gave her. That doesn't change the fact IMO (again this is a discussion board so not everyone is going to agree) that is isn't that attractive. And that this new one is more attractive. For all we know, Mary could feel the same. Just because she appreciates her wedding tiara, wont make it automatically her favorite either.

First off...YES!! We were right about that necklace from last year!! It makes a STUNNER of a tiara & far better than the necklace version. Even though I do like it as a necklace too. Always a good thing to have versatile jewels for someone in Mary's position.

Second...Did I mention it's a stunner? Looks amazing on Mary.

I think some people last year had suggested in hope that the necklace was a convertible tiara. It is quite a traditional necklace & tiara combination. Always good to have an addition to the tiara collection. Though maybe a different jewel type other than diamonds for Mary - she now has 2 diamond fringe type convertible tiaras and her midnight modern one and the ruby tiara. Something with a different stone for example sapphires would have been nice

It's always nice to know you're right.

When I first saw the necklace I thought it was a tiara conversion in that the metal work comes to an abrupt end and is hung on a chain. However, the way it sat across her decolletage was beautiful and I hope she gets access to some serious necklaces other that this and her ruby one.

Having now seen both incarnations I have to admit that to me it is a much better tiara than a necklace, and I hope to see more off it. However, it looks like the diamonds are set in gold and when it is fitted together that colour comes through quite clearly as opposed to her wedding necklace.

A very lovely piece that reminds me a bit of Sarah Ferguson's wedding tiara.

I much prefer it to Mary's wedding tiara too.

No information seems to have been released about where the necklace/ tiara came from. It was speculated when she wore it for the queen's birthday, that it was a new piece as it had never been seen in the DRF before. But no designer was named or any definite information.

This is good. Now there will be some smaller tiaras for Isabella and Josephine to wear to events when their mom is wearing her ruby set.

Great to see Mary wearing a new tiara especially as so many other Royal houses have so many to chose from. She looks lovely and I am so pleased it is versatile enough to wear as a necklace. I had the same thoughts as everyone else when she wore the necklace last year.

I guess it is just a matter of waiting for the right piece to turn up at auction and getting it for the right price unless it was a gift from a visiting country.
