Ive never heard of wire supports for pierced earrings, how does that work?

I can't say for certain that Victoria's earrings have them, and how they work for pierced earrings, but you can just about see something that looks like one on her left ear in that profile picture. The support would extend around the entire ear and takes the weight of a heavy earring off the lobe.

Earrings such a these one worn by Victoria could be very heavy and uncomfortable to use. Wire helps because earring's weight is based not only on pierced hole but on whole ear.

She chose very beautiful dress & jewels for the Nobel price gala,blue looks great on her.
On other women the tiara wouldn´t look so dazzling,but I like it on Victoria,especially with this elegant hairdo.The Six button tiara is so glamourous when it sparkles and reflects the light!

Is the wire for the earring or the hair piece?

The wire is to support the weight of the earring. And here's a lovely rear photo of Victoria's creative hairstyle with the two sapphire hairpins clearly in view:

Is the diamond rows added to the tiara part of the tiara she wore to last year's nobel prize with the white dress?

Here's a photo of the necklace and earrings of the Danish ruby parure worn by Princess Mary. The earrings have the ear supports so the ear lobe doesn't carry the weight of the earrings.

Facinating to see the above ear supports, I never knew but it certainly makes sense.
Thank you to all the posters for the answers and the lovely photos of jewels, both tonight's and from other sources.

CP Victoria never disappoints. Again she 'played' nice with family jewelery. As much as I'm not a fan of six button tiara (I even prefer baden fringe) I must say that she looked great. Glad to see her in parts of sapphire parure, something new for her.
I think that SRF should consider alternations of this tiara, maybe it will be possible to use only 2 rows of diamonds (only rounded not rounded and squared) and lower the buttons.
I hope for tiara today too.

I have to admit, I love the 6 button tiara. When it is pulled off correctly, it looks super elegant and pretty. I've just always hated the base, and today they took one step towards making it better. They just need to remove the middle row and lessen the height of the tiara a bit and then were talkin!

Those earings are gorgeous! They go great with the color of the dress.

Here's a stunning photo of Victoria showing the beautiful color of her earrings. And the six-button tiara isn't looking too shabby, either:

Victoria tonight at the gala dinner the king offers for the Nobel laureates. With her favourite tiara and those gorgeous earrings she had on her pre-wedding dinner and concert.

Those earrings are really magnificent; I'm glad she pulled them out again for another viewing. Paired with the Baden Fringe, she carried everything off beautifully.
