My guess is that Marie received the tiara as a long-term loan. So it will be associated with her, but it is made sure that it will stay in the royal family in the case of a divorce. But all this is guesswork. Since the royal family does not give much information about these things it seems impossible to predict if she will ever own a tiara herself.

I found this post by Bjarne on the Royal Jewels of the World Message Board: Royal Jewels of the World Message Board: Re: Det Kongelige Danske Løsørefideikommis. Bjarne already wrote a book about the Danish Royal Jewels and even he in in the dark concerning the ownership of the tiara.
I personally believe that Queen Margrethe has become more careful about handing out old family heirlooms like the royal tiaras. Many already left the family in her father's generation when Prince Knud inherited several of them. And again in her own generation her sisters were given their own tiaras. On the other hand Queen Ingrid was the last princess to marry into the family and add to the family vaults. The divorce the prince Joachim and countess Alexandra might have been to final straw and caused her to be more protective. So Princess Mary received a tiara with no family connection as a wedding gift and princess Mary got hers as a loan.
But of course this is only my own guess. QM certainly won't let us into her thoughts.

I've deleted some personal comments and the resulting fallout. Hopefully normal service will now be resumed.

She looks lovely in this tiara and her gown--but I highly doubt that HM has given it to her for her own use.

I am in total agreement with you, jcb, re: the ring. I don't seem to remember very many pics of her wearing her engagement ring, at least no close-ups. The little prince is adorable...

It looks like a sapphire to me, too. I also prefer it to the wedding ring. The stones on her wedding ring are gorgeous, but the band was too thick and it distracted from the stones.

There is a little gold band that she is wearing with this ring. I wonder if this is also new.

Correct me if I am wrong, sgl, but I was under the impression that the thick band with the three stones was indeed, her engagement ring and not her wedding band. I believe that her wedding band was the slim gold band that she is wearing with the new ring in question.

You're correct. The ring with the three stones is her engagement ring. Her wedding band is a plain gold ring.

The aquamarine ring she wears on her right hand is a gift from her father-in-law, Prince Henrik.

As far as the sapphire with two diamonds on the side, Princess Marie has has this ring for quite some time. I'm not sure how far back - whether she had it during her engagement period or not.

No, her engagement ring is a thick gold band with three stones in the center: one sapphire, one diamond, and one ruby.

Thank you,Ayvee!I'm sorry,I couldn't open Salma's link.
It seems to me that the aquamarine ring is much more beautiful & modern than the sapphire one!Great choice for a gift indeed!

I must say, Joachim is a generous fellow indeed! Both his ex, and his wife enjoy a variety of jewels. Alexandra received quite a few good pieces from him, almost up untill the end.

I believe that the aquamarine ring was a gift from her father-in-law, Henrik. Not Joachim, auntie. Nevertheless, Joachim does seem to be very generous, indeed. :)
