Victoria and Daniel wore the similar kind of bracelets that they both have had for years.

The ring is from W.A. Bolin (Hovjuvelerare W.A. Bolin » Start)

The only translation I've seen of the article is from the RJOWMB by Boris:
Estimated at close to 100.000 Euro, the ring was made by Stockholm jewelers Bolin, who have been the Bernadotte court jewelers since the 19th century.
(And of course it was bought by Mr. Westling. It would have been VERY strange for him to ‘select’ a piece from his bride’s family...)

It is a beautiful, classic ring.

All the experts on jewels that have been on the news say it´s def two carats closer to three.

Theres no way that it could be three carats. All those "experts" put it on a bit when it comes to these sorts of things, I can remember they did it with princess Mary's engagement ring also.
It looks around 2 carats when I compared the pictures with my 2.50 carat engagement ring. Unless her stone has more depth to it that you cant clearly see.
I'm no expert but I have studied gemology and worked in jewellery for many years.
There really is no sure way of telling unless you have the ring right infront of you though.

Beautiful engagement ring! It looks a lot like the classical Tiffany engagement ring.
Very simple and elegant.

I'm certain there have been--I know Victoria wore it for one of the Nobels, and Silvia has worn it as well. As Silvia found it in a cupboard after her marriage I don't think that Lilian or Christina have worn it. Apparently it was misplaced or hidden away.
Victoria looks lovely, but I think this tiara was a bit of an odd choice--but at least it's not the Baden--not that I don't like it, it's beautiful, I just prefer her to mix it up a bit.

Good question--I don't know the answer. One would think there would be some kind of visual record of the piece. Perhaps Marengo knows? He's the resident expert on the Swedish Jewels---

Here's Lilian in the tiara:

I don't think that there are any pictures of former Swedish royal ladies wearing the cut steel tiara.
In fact, as you probably know, the tiara was 'misplaced', meaning lost and forgotten, for a long time until it was re-discovered by Queen Silvia in the late 1970s - in some dusty old cupboard in Stockholm Palace and by sheer coincidence.
The tiara is Napoleonic and probably came to Sweden through Queen Josefina, but after that, its history is something of a riddle.
There is also a choker necklace and earrings in cut-steel matching the tiara, so it's actually a whole parure, but Queen Silvia has worn the complete set only two times in thirty years.

I think many of us were suprised when she used the necklace again after so many years.

That the tiara was "misplaced" i did not remembered that before you said it.
if they only could "find" other misplaced tiaras..........
