I have never seen the Amethyst Diadem being worn so exceptionally well as by Princess Sofia. It is just fabulous. The tilted way worked because the amethysts are a bit too high on the black monture. The tilted placement in the black lush hair of the Princess caused that there was a less distracting "gap" between the hair and the gemstones. The coronet-style diadem was worn with great effect. Princess Sofia looked very regal and dignified. Fantastic.

I really am enjoying this fresh interpretation. I think it's imaginative and lovely. And her eyes with the tire and the dress are spectacular.
I do want more/better photos.

I am agreeing with all the positives regarding Sofia and this tiara. I think this wearing is fabulous, and I am not a tiara person. Sofia helps by being so striking in her person.

I really want to love this....I just am not a fan. I love the stones...I think it's the setting that is throwing me off. I don't care for it as it is being worn here. Also not sure about the purple stone and blue dress combo.

I didn't like it on her. Which is a shame, as like Victoria, with her dark hair, the amathyst said really shine. I think if with a proper updo, and positioned better, it would have looked great.

Nice to see her wearing her third family tiara. But so far I think the four button really suits her the best. I'd love to see her wear it again.

I'm fine with the positioning of the tiara on Sofia, though I prefer the last two wearings of Madeleine and Victoria. Interesting: all three young Princesses ladies seem to have found a new way of wearing this tiara lately. Well done.

I would have liked it on CP Mary if she were wearing a different outfit. With the beautiful floral dress the piece is lost imho.
I like the midnight tiara - and the connected pieces (necklaces, bracelets), but this type of headpiece is not working IMO. Don't know why though....

I think the combination of blue and purple is fine - it is just this dress being so closed up - and the tiara being set very back of her head, which again reminds me on some medevial pictures...... honestly, I still like the tiara but I think it could look better with a different type of dresss.

To be honest, if you went through the combined Nobel and formal wear wardrobe of Sylvia, Victoria and Madeleine you would see an awful lot in common and even spot that they have all, on occasion, worn each other's gowns. Add to that an almost neverending mix and match of brooches, tiaras, earrings, and necklaces from the foundation an also their personal jewellery.

So I would say for certain there are style elements shared between the sisters/sisters-in-law and even their mother/mother-in-law. It really isn't fair to judge Sofia's progress against Victoria and Madeleine, after all, they have been doing it their whole life and with a mother to guide them. Sofia relies on their example.

I thought Sofia's silver and gold hair ornament was lovely against her dark hair and the earrings she has worn this week have been stellar,

Just hope we never get to see her in the Leuchtenberg!

The person who photo shopped it reduced the size of the tiara to fit her head. If you look at the actual pictures, the tiara is much bigger proportionally. I assume this is why she positioned it at the back of the head.

I think it's too early for that.

It's a bit too grand for the junior Princess.

I would be beyond shocked if we ever saw Sofia in the Leuchtenberg. That is, and has been for a while, a Queen/First Lady only tiara. Sibylla wore it and Birgitta wore it once. Otherwise, it's Queens only.

Only Queens and if there was no Queen the most high ranking Princess nor the one who as acting as First Lady. I think since it has been given to the the Crown princess Vitoria in 1881 by Queens (in her case future Queen).

She looks magnificent in the tiara. One of the best outings this tiara has ever had i my opinion. I don't think this is a tiara suits everyone because of it's wide frame, but she pulls it off.

I was very surprised to see Sofia wearing such a important new tiara! The tiara is rather suitable for her colors and head, but I think that the positioning would habe been better had it been different. What's wrong with her hairstylist?
