I love pearls, but I am not sure about the clasp (or grouping area). It looks a bit odd to me.

I like the simplicity of her dove necklace, especially against the simple black day look.

Aftonbladet's royal expert Jenny Alexandersson tells at her blog, that Johan T Lindwall, the new editor-in-chief of Svensk Damtidning, tells at his first issue of SD that Sofia's tiara was initially a necklace which queen Silvia got as a gift from a prince of Thailand. The necklace was sent to Thailand to be converted, the queen did not want to take the risk to do it in Sweden because it was a well kept secret until the wedding day when Sofia got it as a gift.

Hmm so if Sofia didn't get it until her wedding day did she have no plans to wear a tiara or did she plan to wear another one?

I don't think they mean as a secret from Sofia. Just that it wasn't public knowledge. No one knew what or if she would war a tiara. Remember all the guessing pre wedding. By having the tiara work done abroad, rumors didn't get out about a new tiara. Everyone was surprised on her wedding. I highly doubt Sofia had a tiara planned and then on wedding day silvia goes oh wait you are wearing this instead.

How interesting! It always looked as if it could also be a necklace, so I hope that it is still convertible to give Sofia the chance to wear it as necklace as well. The article also makes me wonder when the jewel was given to the Queen. How long did she let it sit in her jewel box without wearing it? And how on earth did Lindwall find out, if it was such a secret?

I agree, Countessmeout, it's unlikely that Sofia didn't know it. The King and Queen wouldn't deny her the chance to plan her wedding outfit around the wedding tiara.

Svensk Damtidning tells at their paper issue that their information provider tells that Sofia's tiara is new, and from Thailand.
Queen Silvia got it as a gift some years ago by a prince of the Thai royal family. It was converted into a diadem, once it became clear that Carl Philip would marry Sofia. The idea was to give it to Sofia as a wedding present. They had not been able to keep it a secret if the necklace would have been converted in Sweden.
The director of the court press department, Margareta Thorgren, comments to Svensk Damtidning that it is a private present from the queen to princess Sofia and there is nothing they will comment.

It wasn't much of a secret since there were rumors for months before the wedding. I distinctly remember that it was whispered that Carl Philip had gotten Sofia a new tiara.

So, not much of a secret at all.

I wonder which necklace it was. Was it one we've seen? If so, I have an idea of what it was. I would love to know, just to see how they redesigned it.

Isn't it rude towards the person who gave the gift to Silvia, to transform the gift, that she obviously didn't like (thus never wore in public) into a tiara for her future DIL?

I personally don't like the tiara, it looks like a beauty queen contest piece (compared to what is going on in the SRF vault) and understand the gesture rather like a hand-me-down for Sofia, killing two birds with one stone, saving money and getting rid of an unloved piece.

there's no confirmation on if it's a piece Silvia has worn or not (I think), so I couldn't say. Either way, she did at least have it sent back to Thailand to be changed. We used to see dismantling and redesigning a lot more often, so I don't know if I'd say it's outright rude, but a little...unprofessional, maybe?

I would be a touch hurt if someone had a piece I gifted redesigned, but ultimately, my tastes differ from others. As long as their using the jewels, who cares? just my opinion.

I am disappointed. Was excited to see Sofia in new tiara. The small cut steel is so under whelming, on the level of Madeleine she Victoria's starter, though a bit bigger. Compared to her sister in laws in the Connaught and big cut steel, she is almost missed. I would have preferred even one of the buttons.

If that was going to be her new debut, I would have preferred it tomorrow for the smaller event. Her emerald tiara has more bling, and would have looked great with her dress.

I think she looks nice in the Small Cut Steel Tiara. Even though her emerald tiara would have looked good with her dress, I'm happy to see her in anew tiara and lovely hairdo.
