I've recently updated my posts on some Scandinavian tiaras and I would love some feedback. I haven't cover all of Countess Ruth's tiaras but here are a couple.

Rosenborg Kokoshnik
Turquoise Star Tiara

Thanks in advance!

If I had the money to buy a tiara it certainly wouldn't be this one but I do think that it will sell this time because of the lower price and a higher profile auction house. For me it just has too many different design elements going on with the kokoshnik, bows, and the garlands plus the four different stones; diamonds, garnets, pink pearls, and white pearls.

I really, really wish that one of the connected Royal houses bought back the tiara, so that we could see it in the future. But it was probably sold to someone else...

Yes it must have been someone else. If some relative had wanted to buy the tiara, they would have done in a private Transaction.

Princess Elisabeth of Denmark

Princess Elisabeth wore her sapphire tiara at yesterday's State Banquet for the Dutch State Visit. She avoided the photographers, but you can see her at the far right of the table here.

The tiara is called “tunget tiara” and originally was owned by Princess Thyra of Denmark, daughter of King Frederik VII and Queen Louise. Thyra never married and left the jewel to her niece Princess Caroline Mathilde, mother of Princess Elisabeth. The sapphires can be exchanged with turquoises, but afaik Princess Elisabeth has only worn the sapphires.

Its a tiara that I'm not familiar with Tilla but its very beautiful.It also makes me wonder what will happen to it after Princess Elisabeth is no longer with us.

That has caused a lot of speculation amoung the followers of the Danish royal jewels. But Princess Elisabeth herself has not commented about it.

Of course many think that it should go to main line of the RF. But to be honest, her closest relatives are her three nieces. One of them, Countess Josephine, usually wears the diamond bandeau which Queen Alexandrine received as a 25th wedding anniversary gift from her husband. Alexandrine gave it to Elisabeth as a confirmation gift. Not to forget that the relationship between her family and the main line royals has been pretty bad for some time because Prince Knud felt he should have stayed the heir. The rift has been heeled over the years, but I don't think that they are really very close.

So to me it seems likely that she will leave the jewels to her nieces. Of course there is the possibility that the heirs will offer it to the main line for sale. Maybe Princess Elisabeth already made a deal with the Queen. She just had to sell her house because of financial difficulties. So I can imagine that the Queen bought the tiara off her with the provision that the Princess can use it for life. All this is all speculation of course.

For the time being I hope that we will see Princess Elisabeth again at Queen Margrethe's birthday galas next month.

This is the diamond bandeau which I mentioned above. There is no known picture of Queen Alexandrine with this bandeau. Princess Elisabeth rarely wears this tiara, but she did eg at 75th birthday of Prince Henrik in 2009. At that time her sapphire tiara was part of a tiara exhibition.

To my knowledge this bandeau is the only tiara which Countess Josephine of Rosenborg ever wore. She even borrowed it for her wedding.

Here she wears it at the Queen’s 70th birthday. The other lady is her twin sister Camilla wearing their mother’s diamond tiara.

Lets hope that also her 3 nieces will attend at last one of the 2 Galas. Then we can see if one of them wears their mother's sapphire tiara.

Recnetly there was an intersting thread at the Royal Jewels MB with a pic Princess Elisabeth wearing the fringe tiara from Queen Alexandrine at a Theatre Gala in 1997 for the Silver Jubilee of Queen Margrethe II.

I hope the same! For the 70th birthday at least the two eldest sisters attended the gala concert, but not the dinner at Fredensborg. For this year I fear that the concert ahead of the actual birthday might not be a tiara event. Let's keep our fingers crossed.

Tilla,
On one of your pictures of Princess Caroline Mathilde She wears a long necklace wth diamond and sapphires.
The Princess did a tiara from the necklace for Countess Anne-Dorte.

The sapphire tiara comes from Queen Alexandrine. But oringally it was smaller and Princess Caroline-Mathilde changed the center to how it looks now.
