From the state visit to Belgium it seems that MT has got a lot of new jewels (big brooch from gala dinner; demi-parure of diamonds and turquoises from the last night)...

Lucky woman!

I think the turquoise necklace is new and the other ones are from the family's vault. I expect to see MT in more hidden gems, because JC mainly wore her favorite pieces.

It's hard to discuss the jewels she was wearing without a pic, so here's one...

The Real Jewel

For me Maria Teresa has always been the real jewel from the moment I saw pictures of her betrothal.She is one of the few royals that did not marry for the wrong reasons and will never divorce therefore for the right ones.
Her tiaras and necklaces look resplendent on her because Maria Teresa is the real jewel no matter what she wears.

I'm not an expert on M-T (having just really "discovered" the Grand Ducal family myself) but she does seem to have a real flair for wearing her jewels. I think it's rare that someone can wear something like that fabulous tiara and not have it overshadow the loosk and personality of the wearer but M-T seems to achieve that.

Some info about the tiara MT wore and removed from RJOWMB:
Royal Jewels of the World Message Board: Luxembourg jewels
and when it was worn by the previous Grand Duchess:

Thanks, ayvee.

That sapphire (yes?) and diamond tiara is simply beautiful. That close-up picture reveals what artful craftmanship went into its creation. I'm absolutely in love with the depth of the leaves in the wreath pattern, not to mention the quality and size of the stones (!)...

I think that it's a very complimentary piece for MT. I think I've actually seen it on her before, though, I think some state visit to or from Portugal.

I do think that Grand Duchess Maria Teresa is really a beautiful woman--she wears her jewels quite well--even that hideous art deco necklace set in squares she managed to make attractive--not an easy feat, mind you!
I've always thought that she and Henri make a striking couple. I'm so glad she has access to the family jewels now--althought as I recall the daughters wanted to auction off a large number of pieces.

I've removed some posts. Could we please keep the discussion to the topic of jewels and avoid further digressions into JC and MT's relationship or speculation about the family finances.

thanks

Thanks Ayvee. Unlike TRF, the RJOTWMB posts aren't permanent so I'll put this one on the record:

Another tiara worn by the Grand Duchess in Sweden.

These two tiaras which MT wore in Sweden are really beautiful--the workmanship in each is remarkable. Are they set in platinum? Does anyone know?
The sapphire piece is really impressive, and it looks wonderful on MT! She wears these pieces wonderfully well. The all diamond tiara was, I believe a wedding present to JC and large central stone is an 8 carat diamond that can be worn as a ring.

I noticed that in many of the older pics of J-C she is wearing two very long "strings" of diamonds that don't seem to resemble any of the necklaces I have seen M-T wear. I know that necklaces can be shortened but even the size of the stones look different to any of M-T's necklaces. I also want to say that in contrast to a previous post which remarked that the Luxembourg Royals don't have many jewels I think that they have a very impressive collection especially bearing in mind that they are a Grand Duchy and not a Kingdom.

P.S. I still havn't seen M-T's turquoises yet. Any pics?
