I'm really curious which Tiara Marie will get and when we'll see her wearing it for the first time.
I wonder if we'll see her wearing a Tiara during some pre-wedding events (If there'll be any.. since they want a "private wedding") or if the wedding day will be the first day we'll see her wearing a Tiara.

I don't know much about the Danish Royal jewels so I have no idea which Tiara could be given to Marie.

I think we have some confusion here about Diana's ring.

The one Charles gave her was exquisite. The one Dodi was going to give her was UUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGLLLLLLLLLLLLLYYYYYYYYY.

I have to say it -- this is one of the ugliest engagement rings I have ever seen! Looks like something that you would buy off of the street! I think the stones would have looked lovely on a simple white gold band with a diamond wedding band to match when they marry. I like some of my counterparts hope that they picked this out together, if not I would have died at the thought of wearing this hideous piece of jewelry for the rest of my life.

The ring is too much of everything. As the proverb say, too much of good is bad. I have expected that Prince Joachim would have a better taste.

Well, I was horrified when I got a close up of the ring today. I can truthfully say the thing is hideous. Not my idea of an engagment ring. Looks more like a dinner ring to me. Or as another poster said, a Mother's ring.
I'm glad to see that others here feel the same way as I do. I hope this is Marie's idea of a beautiful ring. I'm sure she thinks it beautiful since it came from Joachim. But can you imagine if it was not along her line of taste?

You're right. Better the french colours in a ring than our german black-red-gold (onyx, ruby, citrine perhaps? Yuck!) I'm wondering if it would be impolite to turn an engagement ring down...

Too much going on with that ring, IMO. The band is way too big and I still can't figure out how the wedding ring will fit!! The word ostentatious comes to mind and I don't find it to be at all regal. Eveyone's taste differs, however, and that is what makes life interesting!

I wish I knew how to add your "tongue hanging out", rop81, as it is just Soo perfect!! It appears that no-one is too impressed with the Princess-to-be's engagement ring. I Do hope that she is happy with it. I just know that Alexandra would have been appalled ....

Marie's exudes a certain 'tackarama'. Something a child would find in a Christmas bon bon.

I'm sure the stones are quite lovely and are worth a small fortune but the contrast of blue, white and red on such a thick gold band looks as if it would be better suited upon 'Jack Sparrows' finger than that of a future royal Princess of Denmark.

I don't know much about the Danish Royal jewels so I have no idea which Tiara could be given to Marie.
The Queen made that mistake before and now look what's happened. The Countess of Frederiksborg can claim such a lovely and historical tiara with such a strong royal provenance as her own. I can't see any tiara from the royal vaults being bestowed upon this soon to be Princess's head.

I think, like Mary, Marie's tiara shall be one that's bought at auction. One which has no familial or historical ties with the Danish institution.

Now, let's be fair. I think it very unlikely that the Queen Alexandrine tiara will wind up anywhere other than the head of the future HH Princess Nikolai, so its not as if it has left the family. Knowing that the wife of her eldest son would wear not only the Desiree Clary parure, but ultimately the crown jewels, it should have come as no suprise that Queen Margarethe would gift her younger son's wife with a family tiara as well. But as the personal jewels are running low, maybe this time she will purchase a tiara for Marie with the understanding that, upon her death, Joachim will inherit some of the smaller personal jewels for his wife to wear.

Me neither - it could have been saved somewhat if it had been white gold. But 3 'busy' colours in a ring and then add gold as a fourth colour is not good. I am a bit surprised that Joachim would pick this out - unless he knows that Marie prefers gold coloured gold - and wanted to add the French touch with the three differently coloured stones. It lacks elegance and that is a pity.
Quite a different type of ring than the Fusion ring from Georg Jensen which he reportedly bought for Marie earlier this year.

It's expected that Nikolai shall inherit his mothers tiara. That's not to say it shall happen. I certainly hope it does.
As for Marie, I hope she gets something with a little height. Something not unlike that of Princess Madeleine of Sweden's favoured tiara (the King Carl XVI Gustav anniversary tiara/necklace).

"It lacks elegance". Perfectly said, User Dane. Rather more like a piece of costume jewelry.

I've seen wedding bands with rings like this and they are narrow and flat. I like the ring; I think its unique but I think the stones would have looked better with a flat faced cut to fit in with the scrollwork of the ring. I think with a piece of jewelry like this, either the stones or the metal has to take center stage and a flat faced cut of the stones would have complemented rather than competed with the metalwork.

Its not a typical engagement ring however.

Because Princess Marie (sounds lovely doesn't it) is unlikely to be granted any use of the crown jewels, I do hope her tiara is one of exquisite substance and size. Something moderately demure in design but impressive by sight!

Well, I think the future Princess Marie is more than entitled to a tiara with a bit of height and substance. The fact she is soon to be the second wife of Prince Joachim does her no discredit. He is, afterall, her first and hopefully last husband.
