The diamond bandeau reminds me very much of the diamond necklace which CP Victoria wore in her hair for the 2008 Nobel Dinner. http://inlinethumb56.webshots.com/45...600x600Q85.jpg
Only that it works much better on the new picture. The look is really beautiful.

Yes, I think it's actually the same.

It's most likely the same.
Not a bandeau in a permanent setting, but one of the long diamond collet necklaces from the Bernadotte collection (which are rarely worn these days) put on two velvet bands in CP Victoria's hair color - placed further apart at last year's Nobel 'Day After' Palace gala, closer together and more precisely here. The hairband style suits her very well.
The other photo might indicate the end of any hopes for the rosette ('button') tiaras to be reset any time soon. I doubt that an official portrait featuring this tiara would be taken if Victoria stopped to wear it in its present form afterwards.

I have to say, this is the best I've seen the buttons looking. I think that the hairstyle really works well against the tiara. And, I know that many are complaining about the gown--I like it. I think it is a wonderful photo of the future Queen of Sweden.

I like the gown too. What is the story behind the button tiara. I keep hearing it has sentimental and historical value but I have no idea why?

Sweden | Diadem - Diamand Buttons of the Queen Luisa-Ulrika

great, fantastic, and amazing website. It gives good info on the buttons. I didn't love them until I learned more about them--they're very old and are beautiful. I think they are unique and I enjoy seeing them.

I have to admit that they were not on my favourite list until I had seen Victoria wear them, especially the 6 Button, with her fabulous dark hair. They look very dramatic and are definitely an acquired taste, like fine wine or chocolate!

The purple dress would have been ideal for the amethyst tiara, so I am quite a bit disappointed to see the six buttons tiara once again. Especially after just releasing an official picture with this tiara, she should have gone for the complete amethyst look. But the necklace, earrings and brooch looked stunning on her.

I completely agree. She should have completed the look with the tiara.

I agree with you both, princess gertrude & Tilia C. What a pity... Amethysts belong to my favourite gemstones and it would have been an uber-perfect look for me if she had chosen the tiara as well. However, it's lovely to see the necklace, earrings and brooch, simply stunning!

I know I'm in the minority on this, but I'm actually glad that Victoria didn't wear the amethyst tiara. With all ofthe other purple going on, it would have gotten lost in the color. And since she has been wearing the 6-button tiara better and better, I think it was a wise choice. The design of the gown with the shoulder embellishment required something more substantial than either the amethyst or even the Baden Fringe.

On a side note, I'm so disappointed that Madde was immediately pegged for her mother's tiara all these years. She looks fantastic and wears the 4-button much better than her sister has. It looks as good or better than when her aunts wore it.

I wonder if Victoria was soooooo attached to it that she didn't want to let Madeleine wear it....OR did some sort of weird tiara protocol cause Queen Silvia to intervene and suggest to Victoria that Madeleine looked more impressive wearing the 6-button? Any thoughts or opinions?

Well, imo you can every colour stone with a white dress, as long as it is not a wedding dress! But you are right, you never know. Actually I keep my finger's crossed for the Connaught tiara. Both cameo and connaught tiara have not appeared tonight. So I think they are the strongest contenders for the wedding tiara.

Agree agree, the Connaught tiara is a really strong card when it comes to weddings... It looked great on princess Christina at her wedding!! (and I guess there is a forum for this subject...) And as you said: maybe we can count on that the tiaras that appeared tonight, we will NOT see at the weddings next year (?)

I agree with you. It was good to see a more neutral tiara being used, given the strong colour of the dress and all the other jewels.

I'm glad she wore the 6 button tiara, but I would have liked her to wear the Baden Fringe.

This is the event with the white dress and amethyst tiara.
I think it would look wonderful for a wedding dress.
