Princess Christina also wore Queen Sofia's nine prong tiara - here during the state visit from Denmark to Sweden in 1973, when she acted as First Lady for her brother:

Unfortunately, I don't know anything about the brooch you pointed out above, Josegfine.

I wonder if in the second picture you posted, the pearl choker she is wearing is the same as the one Madeleine now wears or her own? She seems to have a pretty nice personal jewel collection, along with access to some nice family pieces.

Yes, that's Queen Viktoria's diamond and pearl choker in Josefine's 2nd pic.
Apart from Princess Christina, Queen Silvia has also worn it on many occasions during the 80s and 90s, but not recently.

What a nice idea to finally give Princess Christina her own jewellery thread!

She wore the Connaught tiara at her own wedding: http://inlinethumb43.webshots.com/46...600x600Q85.jpg
Here she is wearing the cut steel tiara at the Nobel Awards in 1999: http://inlinethumb24.webshots.com/14...600x600Q85.jpg
The four-buttons tiara: http://inlinethumb62.webshots.com/41...600x600Q85.jpg
Last summer at CP Victoria's wedding she wore the six-button tiara: http://inlinethumb38.webshots.com/46...600x600Q85.jpg

At the Nobel Awards 2010 she wore her own pearl tiara at both nights:
http://inlinethumb48.webshots.com/46...600x600Q85.jpg
http://inlinethumb40.webshots.com/40...600x600Q85.jpg

Boris, unfortunately the picture of the nine prong tiara does not show up for me.
Could somebody pls. post a picture of her wearing the fringe tiara?

Thank you, Boris! I haven't seen this picture before.
When did Princess Christina wear the Baden fringe tiara? Was that also during the time when she acted as First Lady?

Princess Christina wore the Baden Fringe tiara for the wedding of then-CP Margrethe of Denmark in 1967.
Here's a link to Ademar's site about the wedding, with a small pic of Princess Christina at the bottom:

If you do a lot of hunting on google/anp/ibl/scanpix etc and in the search put in "Princess Christina" or "Prinsessan Christina" LOTS of images come up - many of them showing her wearing the Baden fringe tiara, which she did very successfully IMHO. Not all of them are identified as to what event/year, but in addition to the Danish wedding, she definitely wore it for at least one opening of parliament (back when court dress was still used), two nobel ceremonies, and at least one official portrait which may or may not have been in conjunction with a state visit...don't know.

Dearest Rascal, for you to just post a few links to the LOT of pics of Princess Christina wearing the Baden Fringe would have been so highly appreciated (just copy and paste -).
I believe Princess Christina wore it for the Nobel ceremony 1971, but I really find it hard to discover any more clear pics online.

Hi, Boris. I'll give it a try as I am not very good at posting links and pics (YET!) but will give it a go. It might take some time to find them all but if y'all can be patient, I will persist.

I'll continue to look out for them too... it would be lovely to have just one nice, clear pic of Christina in the Baden Fringe.

Here are a couple of tries...

This one doesn't have any tiara, but there is definitely some glitter:
ANP Beeldbank meeting the Supremes

This link goes to one of the pages from the Glittering Royal Events site...a feast for the eyes. This page deals with guests (IN GLITTER) at the previously-mentioned wedding of then queen-to-be Margaret of Denmark and the future Prince Consort of Denmark:
http://www.angelfire.com/realm3/denm...wels21967.html

Imageshack isn't letting me upload any pics right now, so in lieu of that, here is a link to one of the sites I periodically check. It seems that they all rotate some photographs in and out, as some of the others I have seen of Christina in the fringe are gone. On the IBL site, I have searched her many times over the last few years. This week is the first time the photo from 1973 in the nine-prong tiara showed up. So check back occasionally and you may find another "glittering treasure".

Regardless, there are many interesting pictures from throughout the life of this extraordinary woman IMHO. All my best wishes to her and her family as she fights the disease of cancer.

Thanks for the link, Rascal. I love old pictures of royals.

No major jewels in these pics, making this rather off-topic , but I think Christina looks stunningly and naturally beautiful here (pity about the watermark across her mouth ). Such pretty eyes!

Another source for searching

This is a link to one of the sites I found while searching. It has many photos and lots of information about royal jewels (although not specifically Princess Christina). I thought some of you who haven't been there might like it.
