Thank you, Boris, for clarifying about the hand Victoria and Silvia wear their wedding ring. My question regarding left or right was in reference to Sweden, not the tradition itself - I find it interesting that some cultures wear it on the right.

In Denmark the engagementring is worn on the left hand and the weddingring on the right hand - because: You say yes to marry the (wo)man with your heart, but you say legally yes in the church/at the city hall with your right hand

Also in Finland both rings are worn at the left hand.

Victoria's earrings at her birthday in Solliden are from Charlotte Bonde design. Beautiful.

Does anyone know the history of this rather nice necklace Victoria wore to the memorial event in connection with the 100th anniversary of Raoul Wallenberg's birth?

I like the blue earrings a lot. They go very well with her dress.

I really fancy that pendant and how apposite is its resemblance to a four-leaved clover -Victoria and Daniel gathered their very own ones in the shape of their respective partner!

They do look charming making me think of the rings caused by stones which had been dropped into water http://kungligamodebloggen.svenskdam...8/Bild-121.png. I guess these earrings are equipped with diamonds, blue topazes and sapphires. Does anybody know who designed them?

Her necklace doesn't looke like the one from the Wedding series. Sure the shape is similar, but it's missing the center thingy. It looks more like Van Cleef & Arpels Alhambra to me, but I can't find it on the website.

I'm not a fan of this necklace; too chunky and bulky. It also reminds me of something one would make in an art class during summer camp.

That necklace is hideous! Too bulky for my taste.

I love the color of the stone. It matches her dress perfectly.
