She also used those earrings at CP Victoria's pré-wedding consert, if I'm not mistaken...

Wow! I love the earrings! They are truly unique and make a stunning statement with this outfit. But for me the biggest surprise was the way Mette Marit worked her tiara. What a stylish and unique way of wearing it. I don't know if she has ever worn it that way before but, it looks fabulous, dare I say, almost Halo -like.

Love the earrings. I don't like the tiara way back on her head like that. Makes it hard to see.

Does anybody know what those earrings are, their beautiful, classical yet modern as well. I'm not too certain they're rubies though. But, I love her tiara like this, it just framed her face so perfectly. I've never seen it worn like a kokoshnik or like a halo, but I like it!

These earrings are stunning, especially the large red stones (rubies perhaps?)! And they suit MM a lot!

I´ve read that this brooch was a gift from King Harald and Queen Sonja to MM when she and Haakon announced their engagement.

I love all the above pearl earrings on MM, great choices! The brooch is, apart from ugly, quite 'detestable' IMO. They had no reason to choose an item whose shape resembles the half moon, it's so not European, as far as cultures are concerned.

I agree. The earing combinations are all particularly beautiful. However, I do not like the brooch at all. It is neither feminine nor European for that matter.

Actually, I ve noticed from brownsing the sales archives in auction sites like Christie's that this exact type of crescent brooch (crescent on a bar with single stone at the ends) was quite popular in the victorian times (I guess this was the period when the Teck crescent tiara was also made). So if it is a true family heirloom from those times and not purchased especially for MM, it is a nice and fitting engagement gift IMO, no matter what the cultural references are. But anyway as far as style oes, I find it unflattering too

I had no clue - thanks for the info, Snowflower! It still looks odd and quite ugly to me and I'm glad some posters agreed. A more feminine brooch could be a much better gift for a Princess's engagement IMO.
