And it makes perfectly sense that she and Bertil have split up their inheritance, so that each of the siblings gets a part of it.

I never knew it was originally a necklace -it's much prettier as a necklace for sure... In my opinion.

Has to! It looks like the necklace that Bertils mother is wearing has only one strand of the wreath where as this has two?

I would like to see it as one strand as a tiara! That might be interesting! Perhaps Sofia will wear it one day, and she might see if it can be worn as one, only time will tell.

This answers my question! She folds it and somehow holds it into her hair, so it can not be detached. It is not officially a tiara but a necklace. Thanks fir this link, it was rather informing.

I would love to see it as anecklace instead as a tiara when we see it the next time, there are many tiaras and i think the collection needs a diamond necklace besides the revires

The Royal Order of Sartorial Splendor: Tiara Thursday: Lilian's Laurel Wreath Tiara

Like I said before, I think this tiara is unusual and one of my least favorites in the Swedish royal collection. Though I do like it as a necklace.

Out of all the tiaras she has worn, my top favorite is the Baden Fringe tiara.

could lilians laurel tiara be used as a bandeau tiara and a braclet?
A laurel bandeau as Estelles first tiara and a bracelet to go with it, until then use it as a necklace.

A new postcard from the Royal Court of princess Lilian, she is wearing a choker with a variable pendant.

German royal journalist and author Norbert Loh, who has always given the impression that he has very good connections to the swedish royal court, writes in his Facebook that Lilian has in her will given this necklace to Victoria. Loh has written books about queen Silvia.

We will see, the swedish press hasn't written any exact details about Lilian's last will.

I also prefer the pearl choker without the pendant as well. And in this photo, is this the diamond bracelet that Madeleine wore at her wedding? It's really beautiful.

No I think thie one she wore for wedding is different. It's a bit more geometric IMO.

^^^Thanks for posting Madeleine's bracelet, that one has a very nice zigzag design different from Lilian's.

I think it was made public that all of Lilians jewels would go to Victoria right? I'm very glad of that, not only cause I loved Lilian and her and Victoria seemed to very close, but also because I believe Victoria is the only one besides her mother who can really pull off all of Lilians jewels. I mean, she knocked it out of the park at Mado's wedding. I was never a big fan of that tiara or necklace but they looked sublime on Victoria. I can't wait to see Victoria wear the scarab necklace, that is one of my favorite necklaces of all time.
