Actually, the provenance of the cut steel tiara was never explained after Queen Silvia re-discovered the lost piece by accident in the Palace in 1979.
But this year, the Nobel press release from the Palace says that it belonged to Queen Hortense of Holland, born de Beauharnais, Empress Joséphine of France's daughter from her first marriage.
I wonder whether this is true or if the Court made (yet another...) mistake by confusing it with the cameo tiara. The cameo tiara, as it was discovered only this year by a member of the RJWMB, was indeed worn by Queen Hortense, who is shown with it in a miniature painting.
The RJWMB member subsequently informed the Queen's staff at the Palace, who replied that they were very thankful because the info was new to them.
Here is the link to the press release: Kungen delade ut 2010-års Nobelpris - Sveriges Kungahus [NS4 version]
At CP Victoria's wedding the court also made a blunder when they mentioned the wrong tiaras for Princess Madeleine and Princess Margretha. Back than they quickly corrected the info on their website. Maybe we should keep an eye on this press release as well.
If it really belonged to Queen Hortense, than I'm dying to know how they found out. Maybe more research on portraits of her has been done?

This pic shows the Queen Josephine's pearl and ruby brooch in Victoria's hair: http://inlinethumb45.webshots.com/45...600x600Q85.jpg
I looks nice, imo. Only the combination of ruby hair ornament with sapphire necklace isn't too happy.
The one thing I don't like is the lowering of their jewellery-standards: If this were a black tie event, I'd be very happy to see CP with a nice brooch in her hair. But for a black tie dinner she rather should wear a tiara, imo.

I know what you mean Tilla, first Daisy's birthday bash and now this. I don't like this trend. But there is talk an another site that perhaps something went wrong with the tiara. Her hair is styled for a tiara and you can notice a bump where a tiara would go. The Baden Fringe would have made this look!

Oh and I forgot to drool over the Cut Steel tiara. Victoria needs to channel Empress Josephine more often because I thought she was a 10 that night!

Thank you Josefine, but 'Svensk Dam Tidning' simply copied the text from the Royal Court's release about Nobel day - see the top of this page.
(SDT seems to constantly copy everything and everyone... particularly their fashion blogger Lotta, and particularly from this Forum here. )

No, the cut steel tiara is indeed made of, well, cut steel... set in gilded brass, so at least the 'golden sparkle' would be correct.
I still would love to know whether the connection to Queen Hortense of Holland is a mistake, or the result of new research; Göran Alm says nothing about it in his book about the Bernadotte jewels.

I don't want to be fuzzy, Princejohnny25, but Tilla is another poster on this forums
I agree so much about the cut steel tiara. Imo this is now the 2nd time she got it completely right with this tiara, the first time being last year's Nobel dinner!
But I'm not convinced about the theory that something happened to the tiara before yesterday's dinner. To me the hairstyle looks like it was exactly created for this brooch. And the no-tiara-wearing seems to be a continuation of the last two years tiara policy for this event: in 2008 Victoria wore a diamond necklace, Madeleine wore the Rose brooch; 2009 Madeleine wore the diamond necklace; 2010 Victoria wears the pearl and ruby brooch. This clearly looks like it was all planned. Sigh

I really loved the cut steel tiara on Victoria this year! The hairstyle was just perfect to complement it, a timeless regal appearance, IMO.
