Yes this wasn't the best tiara year for Victoria. I hope we will see her again in the baden fringe tiara and the larger steel cut tiara this year. These 2 tiaras are by far her best of all tiaras she has worn so far.
I think the amethyst tiara would look good at her if she wore it more the way Madeleine wore it at the Nobel prize ceremony and banquet. Maybe we will see that at Madeleines wedding ? 

The Royal Order of Sartorial Splendor: Tiara Thursday: The Swedish Button Tiaras

These tiaras are my least favorite in the Swedish royal jewellery collection. I agree that the Four Button tiara reminds me of lights on a Jeep. I prefer the Six Button over the Four button but that's not saying much. Closeups of the tiaras are beautiful but I really dislike the design in general.

Here are some photos of her engagement ring:

Her ring is one of my favorite royal engagement rings. Just timeless, classic, elegant, and a great size as well. I would love a ring like this. A very beautiful engagement ring.

I have to agree with you. Victoria's engagement ring and her wedding ring for that matter, are simple, elegant and not ostentatious. They make a real statement about who she and Daniel are.

I agree. The rings are just right for her position, role and status.

I love it as well. In fact, itīs one of the few royal engagement rings that I would wear if they were mine

She looked exquisite that night and those jewels were absolutely amazing. I thought I read somewhere that those earrings were actually jeweled epaulettes that were converted into the earrings.

I'm sure Artemisia can shed some insight into this!

I agree with you - IMO this was one of her most glamorous appearances. It is such a shame, that she seems to prefer custom jewelry at so many occasions.... but ok, as long as she treats us from time to time with the "real thing", it's fine

Victoria wore those earrings also at the King's dinner for the Nobel Laureates in December 2011. The court calls them as "Epaulette earrings".

As LadyFinn already said, Victoria wore "Epaulette earrings". Here is all the (rather scarce) information available on the piece:

Thank you both LadyFinn and Artemisia for the information on the earrings. They're such a statement piece and it's really neat that epaulettes were used as earrings.

They must have looked amazing when worn as epaulettes on a dress uniform.

Victoria's brooch at the church service on Sunday.
Someone wrote to Svensk Damtidning's comments, that it is gold and has very small diamonds, it is designed by Jaana Lehtinen to W.A. Bolin and Victoria has had it for a long time. I don't know if this is true or not.

Has someone a better photo of the brooch?

That looks like a leaf pattern in the first photo, but more of a tree motif due to the irregular edges in the second.

It reminds a birch leaf - the designer is finnish, and birch is the national tree of Finland.

Very nice gold brooch.
Her fabulous epaulette earrings were just perfect with her pre wedding gala dress, big earrings, bracelet and hair ornament!! Just enough to go with the dress, not too much.
I think they would go with just about everything!
