CP Victoria wears the Connaught tiara for the second time. For the Nobels she beautifully paired it with the amethyst necklace, earings, brooch at the back of her hair and a purple gown. Lovely, imho, and her hair is nice with the tiara this time, it looks softer, being swept to the side instead of the harsh middle parting she sported the first time with this tiara.

I agree that it is better than the first time she wore but still personally do not like this tiara in victoria. The other jewelry is beautiful with the dress.

Love all her jewels today. I think that she wears the tiara well and it suits her. The color of her dress is gorgeous, and of course her hair is perfection.

Victoria's jewels are stunning. Those amethysts are exquisite. Perfect combination.

Victoria has also a broosh or something like this in her hair. Could see same sparkle in the back of her hair at the Banquet.

I think it sparkled purple, so it would be one with amethyst. Now that the banquet has started, there will soon be better pics from behind.

The colour of the amethysts looks fantastic on Victoria whose dark southern colouring becomes warm and glowing in purple. I find that this necklace which consists of the two bracelets is a bit too short for her rather thick neck and makes it look bigger than it is. I quite like her hair to night but I do not think the Connaught tiara looks good on her. It is really delicate and her face features are too hard and severe for it. She needs a diadem that can balance her chin and jawline which is why I think big and high tiaras like the cut steel looks fantastic on her whereas a person like Sofia would disappear in those.

I still hope we will see Victoria in the ruby tiara. Red looks wonderful on Victoria and I think the hight of that diadem will suit her face.

I think she also wore the amethyst brooch at the back of her hair.

Why she has to wear this awful Connaught Tiara. No one should wear this as a tiara, but as a necklace. There is no dignity and royal touch in this tiara at all. Victoria is a very strong and regal woman, and a girly tiara like this doesn't suit her at all. She needs a simple and regal tiara like the Baden Fringe or Big Cut Steel. Oh, if she just would have worn the Baden Fringe tiara tonight, she would have looked perfect.
But luckily the amethysts are gorgeous and she has the bracelet Lilian loved.
The brooch at her hair:

Thank you for the pictures! Are there two brooches in the amethyst parure?

I think the Connaught forget me not tiara can look lovely on someone with more delicate features, but I agree with you that it is too girly for Victoria. I also agree that she looks best in the cut steel or the Baden fringe(if the hair is done well).

This is the best I have so far seen of the amethyst brooch in her hair.

I usually like to see brooches in her hair, but I don't like this, it looks a bit like an eye

Hmm, I personally loathe the Connaught. It is fussy and prissy and altogether too "Disney" for my taste. I do not believe that even Silvia can wear it to best effect these days. But on Victoria it just looks OTT.

Having gone with the fabulous amethysts, I wonder she didn't 'go all the way' and wear the tiara as well. It would have looked amazing, or she could have gone Baden Fringe and diamonds. But this particular pairing just doesn't fit. The amethysts are gorgeously geometric and the Connaught all froth and thus, in my eyes, are a total mismatch.

For me, I would put it down as a rare miss for Victoria.

Perhaps she thought with all the jewels and her dress in purple, having the matching tiara would be over the top. Who knows.
