I doubt that- but Mary got two tiaras including the ruby parure which is magnificent and Marie was given one.

But here's what I think. I think that the Queen was very careful to buy a small diamond tiara at the onset because she was waiting to see how the marriage of the Crown Prince would progress. Remember that at the time of the Crown Princely engagement and wedding, Prince Joachim and Princess Alexandra's marriage was over and had been in trouble for years. They were married for less than 10 years. The Queen would have known at the time, that the family heirloom - the Alexandrine tiara (which was a wedding gift and owned by Alexandra) - would be "lost" to the royal family. So Mary was brought a small tiara and Marie was given a loan.

Now that the crown princely marriage has successfully passed the 10 year mark, maybe the Queen? (I assume) felt that the time was right for a more substantial diamond tiara for CP Mary. Maybe a reward also for Mary's great success as a wife, mother and crown princess.
but... didn't mary wear this tiara as a necklace some time ago, and also at the early start of her royal life? which would mean that this tiara may have always been among those she could use, but she has never chosen to wear it as tiara until now?

I once read somewhere that Mary was given the choice between a new tiara and a family piece. But I don't know the source anymore. It might have been something that the journalists made up, you never now.

She wore the necklace only once, and that was last year at Queen Margrethe's birthday concert.

I don't think you can count the Ruby Parure. That belongs to Prince Frederik and heaven forfend Mary should die or they should divorce, that parure would adorn the head of Fred's second wife should he remarry.

Of course, there is always the wild idea he gave it to Mary for keeps, but after the disaster of the loss of the historic and beautifully unique Alexandrine Drop Tiara, I think Fred would have wagered on his marriage lasting.

As to Mary's new tiara . . . the more I see it, the more I like it as a necklace. There is just too much rose gold and not enough sparkly diamonds to make a fabulous tiara.

Well on those grounds Marie has no tiaras. Her wedding tiara is a loan from the queen. If they got divorced it reverts back to the royal family. Her lily tiara is not owned by her either it is owned by the designer.

Mary has 2 tiaras she owns, including this new one.

I still think that the ruby parure does count. It might be owned by Frederik, but he won't wear it. That job is up to her. As long as Mary has access to the tiara, the ownership doesn't matter that much, imo. And should the marriage end in divorce she won't get much use out of her wedding tiara anyways, because she would hardly have tiara events.

That is a possibility. Maybe some day a journalist will wriggle an answer out of the Crown Princess to confirm if it was a gift or not.

But didn't give Federik her the beautiful locket in gold and black enamel for the anniversary? Or was that a birthday gift? Sorry if my memory is quite bad about this.

It seems it has been bought at the auction by the Crown Princess herself,as the article refers.

I know many of you on the message board have excellent skills when it comes to enlarging photos....would anyone be willing to enlarge one of these photos of her new tiara and post it? I love the design, but there is not much sparkle.....I may be wrong, but I am not convinced that these are diamonds and would love to have a closer look! Please and thank you!

In the enlarged photo it looks as if the tiara/necklace has small ruby accents in it, especially when looking at the central element. What does everyone else think?

I wonder what about the piece attracted her? Insight into her soul. Opposite from what I would choose. Wonder if its effect in person is different than in the pictures.

I don't wonder the least bit what attracted her to this lovely piece. It's a very pretty, very "Mary" looking tiara/necklace.

Im not sure Mary bought this. To me it is just like her other one except a little bigger. I would think she would want something different...just my opinion. Its not very sparlky with the rose gold.

I have to admit that to me when the "it" is in its necklace form it looks elegant and the rose gold gives Mary's skin a warm blush, however when in its tiara setting it seems almost as if the rose gold swamps everything. I just have a sense of it being crowded and lot's of pinkish gold highlighted by Mary's darker hair and the stones seem to become almost insignificant.
