Regarding the bracelets pictured here:
- Picture No. 1 shows a historic bracelet very often worn by Queen Silvia. It consists of three rows, two in diamonds and one in sapphires. The three bands can be separated and put together in whichever combination is desired.
- Pictures No. 2 to No. 7 all show the rather infamous ‘handcuff’ bracelet – this very modern and very chunky design made in silver is frequently worn by CP Victoria, and her longtime boyfriend Daniel Westling wears the same.
- In picture No. 5 and No. 7 Victoria wears the ‘handcuff’ bracelet with costume jewelry bracelets which match the color of her dress.
- Picture No. 8 shows a simple twisted silver bangle bracelet, not often worn.

The ring is simple, but really beautiful!
I love the diamond stone.

Expressen/Så mycket är ringen värd
Johanna Isacsson is the intendent and jewelry expert on Bukowskis.
According to her, it is a classic engagement ring: a round, brilliant cut diamond. It is a classic Tiffany-model, looks very white and nice and is probably the highest quality.
Isacsson has only seen the ring on the photo, but believes that it is over two carat, perhaps even three.
And then it costs.
- Value of such a ring is always several hundreds of thousands of swedish krones. Would it be over three Carat and highest quality it can cost up to one million, says Isacsson.
She thinks that the ring is a nice size, great in all situations and always beautiful, even when skiing. But it is not so big or valuable that she must put it in the bank tray when she is out and sports. It is a perfect size, suitable for the future queen.

One million swedish krones is about 88000 euros / 112000 USD.

The diamond is set in four-prongs. It's a little different from a Classic Tiffany setting where their round diamond solitaire is set with six prongs.

It's still very classy and the diamond is huge!

I think that it is a one carat or over, not two carat. Unless Victoria has thick fingers...
It is a beautiful, classic ring.

Re: The diamond brooch that CPss Victoria wore to the engagement conference.

Does anyone know the history and possible significance of the diamond brooch that CPss Victoria wore to the second engagement press conference?

Any information would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers and Thank you.

There is nothing quite like an elegant solitaire diamond for an engagement ring - so simple and timeless! I think the setting is very modern with the four claws holding the diamond in place - too much metal around the diamond would diminish the sparkle.

Does anyone know the provenance of the diamond in the engagement ring?
