I really like the versatility of the Connaught tiara. Thanks so much for identifying the source of those earrings, Boris; they are indeed lovely on Madeleine.

No, Princess Madeleine did so before a few years ago.
And the King's mother Princess Sibylla wore the drops as earrings as well.

No, Victoria's earrings are different; Queen Silvia wore them frequently in earlier years.
These drops were originally pendants on the grand diamond necklace which is a favorite of Princess Lilian.
The necklace was originally a stomacher of Queen Victoria (née of Baden) and included these extra pendants, which were removed and turned into earrings when the stomacher was turned into a necklace.

The Royal Order of Sartorial Splendor: Tiara Thursday: Madeleine's Tiaras

My favorite is the stunning Connaught tiara. Second, the Modern Fringe tiara. The Six/Four Button tiaras are nothing special. The Diamond Bandeau is nice. The Aquamarine tiara is (no suprise) one of my least favorite tiaras. It's very boring and plain.

I tend to agree. I especially like the Modern Fringe Tiara and the Connaught Diamond Tiara (although this one did not suit Madeleine as well, IMO). Although I am not a fan of the button tiaras, the Four Button Tiara looked especially nice with her hairstyle (in the picture provided).

She also wore an interesting pair of earrings at "My Big Day Dinner":

This is one of my favorite tiaras! I love the unique design and the diamond pendants. Very stunning and delicate. The upcloses are exquisite! Madeleine looked great wearing it and I hope she will wear again. I especially loved her tiara hair. I also think this is a great wedding tiara.

It looks like a modern pair of earrings, it's quite nice for a change!

Here you see Princess Madeleine's new(?) dangling pearl earrings from the concert in the evening of September 18, 2012:

I like this timelessly elegant and noble pair, yet suchlike elongate jewels are best qualified for updo hairstyles i.m.o..

An updo would be perfect, but the earrings are still beautiful and glamorous!

Yes, of course . Do you believe they are genuine? Anyhow, they reminded me of a similar pair from Crown Princess Letizia: http://www3.pictures.zimbio.com/gi/P...NUHv06ukLx.jpg

Could it be a present from Christopher? I noticed that she wore these earrings for the official engagement photos in color.
