Here is a close up of Madeleine's engagement ring and one of the beautiful amethyst bracelets.

I'm impressed more by the bracelet than the ring since the stone is at an angle in the photos and you can't see it too well. Is the bracelet part of the amethyst parure? Simply gorgeous color and surrounded by beautiful diamond settings. Thanks for posting.

Aquamarine Bandeau II: the Cyclops! | tiaras and trianon

This is one of the worst tiaras I have ever seen!

Gad, I'd prefer to see that stone reset in a brooch, pendant or ring rather than that setting. It reminds me of a New Age Third Eye tiara.

Thank you for posting the lovely bracelet and ring! Even though you can't really see the ring, it's a princess cut right :) the diamond studded band is very in now.

I actually think that's why I like it so much.

I don't think that it's that bad. And I would hate to see the demolition of a tiara that once belonged to Queen Louise. Besides this tiara was there first, New Age cam much later.

The bandeau was very appropriate for a young princess. Now Madeleine seems to have given up wearing this small piece anyway. So I'd say: leave it for the next generation.

Absolutely. It's not a great tiara for an older woman, but it was perfect for an 18 year old girl.

Now that's a stunning jewel; I love to see pieces like that worn in the hair. And sorry, ladies, I stick to my opinion about the Cyclops/New Age tiara, provenance or not. It wouldn't be a crime to reset that gem in something more attractive; jewels in original settings have certainly been modified countless times. Queen Mary is a great example of resetting her jewels in her vast collection and disassembling pieces to do so. As far as the aquamarine tiara, I'm sure there are certainly prettier pieces for a young princess to wear and hopefully it'll be left in the vault.

That is really a beautiful detailed piece. I wonder if it's an actual hair ornament or a brooch that doubles as one.

It's a brooch that can also be worn as a hairpiece. A bit more here - The Bernadotte Diamond Rose Brooch.
Swedish royal ladies often wear brooches as a hairpiece. Another example is Queen Josephine's Pearl and Ruby Brooch.

I love how the Swedish royal ladies are so versatile with their gems; sometimes the brooches look better as hair ornaments than their original purpose. I really like when they thread necklaces into their hair as well. Thanks for the info, Artemisia.

The Royal Order of Sartorial Splendor: Tiara Thursday: The Swedish Aquamarine Bandeau Tiara

As I have said before, this is one of the worst tiaras I have ever seen. I really dislike the design. It's very plain looking and boring. I much prefer Victoria's 18th birthday tiara than this, but that's not saying much.
