In the Danish royal family, they need to organise a foundation to own the jewellery and to stop leaving jewellery to junior royals from whom the pieces leave the Danish monarchy. The Belgians need to have such a foundation as well. I think the jewels are to enhance the monarchy and are not madam's trinkets.

The jewels of the Royal family can be divided into three parts:
First is the Crown jewels that are property of the state and can't be worn abroad. http://kongehuset.dk/en/historical-c...e-crown-jewels

Secondly are those that were put into a foundation established in 1910 by Queen Louise and King Frederik VIII. Many of these had been part of Louise's massive dowry which is said to have covered an entire pool table without the cloth being visible underneath including several jewels with a connection to the Court of Napoleon. Other jewels came from her equally massive inheritance from her mother and grandparents belonging to the House of Orange

Thirdly there's also a lot of jewels that are the private property of different royals. Examples of this are the jewels that The Queen inherited from her mother Ingrid of Sweden and the Napoleonic Ruby parure left by Ingrid to her grandson Crown Prince Frederik.

Would you donate your jewels to such a foundation or rather leave it to someone as an inheritance or a gift? Some of the jewels are owned by the Crown/state but most of them are personal property and as such are at the full disposal of the owners. The jewels are not owned by the Royals for our enjoyment. But, of course, it's shame for a royal follower that they dissapear from the radar when passing to minor relatives.

Queen Alexandrine share her jewels half for King Frederick and half for Prince Knud.

The late Princess Elisabeth could decide what to do with them : to her close family her nieces who loved her or the royal House who snobed her.

We will see in the future.

The Opal tiara is horrible I don't think anyone could do it any justice.

The Royal Order of Sartorial Splendor: Tiara Thursday: Queen Alexandrine’s Russian Sapphire Tiara

I love the sapphires but I dislike the design. I prefer the smaller version.
