LOVE the Fringe tiara and the earings!

Together those two would seem too much but not on Victoria!

Over on the fashion thread Kellydofc alluded to the Karl Johan tiara having "additions":

I queried the "addition":

I was pretty sure that nothing had changed and invited Kellydofc over here to talk about it. However, over here I find jemagre questioning the same thing.

Now I find myself wondering if in fact these two astute members have spotted something new. Others have noted how it "out sparkled" Silvia's nine-pronged tiara . . . . could this be the reason? Has Crown Princess Victoria "upped the ante" and "enhanced" the Karl Johan Tiara?

There's also been chatter on other boards that a diamond band was added to the tiara. This is as close a picture I can find before the enhancement to the base:

Yes, of course they are correct, the tiara has been slightly altered: The third diamond row on the bottom, covering the velvet base, was added for the occasion.
Most likely not a permanent addition, but one of the diamond collet necklaces from the Bernadotte collection pinned or sewn to the base. The different setting of the stones is quite obvious. On the Royal Court's website, they label it 'extra row of diamonds'.
Certainly a glittering addition, but IMO not saving this unfortunate piece. Three rows as seen now, with the center one being the shortest, look rather odd. And the even number of rosettes on ugly stilts with horizontal diamond lines below is just an unappealing design idea to begin with.
As the current tiara is only from the late 1970s / early 80s, no historic concerns should prevent the antique rosettes from being re-set in a better way one day, I'd say.

The earings got a description name now
epålett örhängen/Epaulette earings

is a type of ornamental shoulder piece or decoration used as insignia of rank by armed forces and other organizations.
Kungens middag för Nobelpristagarna - Sveriges Kungahus [NS4 version]
Kronprinsessan hade en silverfärgad klänning med paljett- och pärlbrodyr. Till denna bar Kronprinsessan Stråldiademet och epålett-örhängen. Kronprinsessan bar Serafimerordens ljusblå band, ordenstecken och kraschan samt Luxemburgska kraschan.

It's great that they confirm that the earrings were épaulettes/shoulder pieces of a gala uniform originally, but:
This would have been a great opportunity for the Court to finally mention the original owner and precisely date these pieces... what a pity that they did not.

In their text, they are still calling the Connaught tiara of Crown Princess Margaret 'Sibylla's tiara', and in the description of Queen Silvia's jewelry at the Nobel ceremony, they mis-identified her earrings as the 'Vasa earrings' - wrong, she actually wore the Carl Johan diamond earrings.
Makes you wonder not for the first time how reliable their info is in general.

Looking at close-ups of the tiara, the 3rd diamond row doesn't look like a permanent addition, imo. It is slight lightly uneven, not as straight as the two original lines, which indicates that it's just a riviere added for the evening.
You are quite right about the even number of rosettes looking unappealing. I can't think of any other tiara (apart from the 4-buttons tiara), which has an even number of of elements. For a successful design it seems to be necessary to have one central element.
I think that a base similar to the Dutch pearl-button tiara might be quite successful for the good old rosettes. But since Victoria wears the 6-buttons so often, she doesn't seem to mind the current setting.

Wow, the Swedish Royal Ladies ought to get an award for best tiara hair- its like artwork on them~ Who does these elaborate hair designs for the tirars? Just think what they could do for the Dutchess of Cambridge?! I liked the height on CP Victoria's 6 button tiara, but maybe she is getting too mature for this tiara, seems a little juvenile to me. However the sapphires (brooch & earrings) were stunning! OMG, what color- amazing!

I'm always in raptures at Swedish tiara events; not only do you see those bejeweled beauties being worn, but they're always displayed on a nest of the best tiara hair I've seen in Europe. They have the philosophy down right: a phenomenal tiara should be nestled on a phenomenal hairstyle to show it off to perfection. I'm not a fan of the Nine-Prong or Six-Button tiaras that were worn at this event, but seeing them on the fantastic hair of Silvia and Victoria was amazing. The Swedish hairdressers are certainly masters of their art and really deserve commendation for their work.

You can tell by the amount of appearances that the Fringe is Victoria's favorite tiara. I definitely favor it above the others.

They were okay... but imo they would have looked better as white gold or platinum. Though I'm bias... I personally can't stand yellow gold.

I like her cut steel tiara though. Very unique and pretty!
