It is HIDEOUS.. my prescription would be to remove one Button [or 'headlamp'], use its diamonds to string along the base, and between the remaining 3 Buttons [the two 'side' ones slightly lower than the central one].

They'll never dismantle one of the buttons because of their age. At 250 years old they're to historically to play with. That said one could easily be removed and then other diamonds used for what you suggest.

LOVE without the emeralds too. She has such great hair I would also try to use tiaras without that severe part in the center of the head.

I really like how Sofia's wedding tiara was revamped!

Even though I would not call it a fringe tiara, it seems to have the utility-ness of a fringe tiara.

Re the Four Button Tiara, Victoria added diamonds to the base area in at least one of her wearings of that diadem, link.

I'm glad to see that the tiara is versatile enough for it to be worn with or without the emeralds. It's not that I disliked the emeralds, they are lovely stones. The problem imo was the rather closed frame, which used to perch on top of her head like a bird's nest. The way she wore it now was completely different, the frame seemed more open and swerving around the head, so that it frames the face. The effect is much better, imho. Now I'm dying to know if the frame has always been that flexible, or if Sofia had a completely new frame made for it. Oh well, the court will probably never comment about that.

They may actually have done just that. (Comment, that is). Here's article from Svensk Damtidning. https://www.svenskdam.se/2017/11/pri...stora-snackis/

The reporter asks Margaretha Thorgren - the court spokeswoman - about the diadem. Her reply:
- It's the princess wedding diadem that has been remade (in swedish "har gjorts om"). It's simply made so that its appearance can be changed, she says.

It is MASSIVELY improved by the changes, hopefully other stones can be swapped with the Emeralds if desired..

I agree, the newer base seems to substantially improve the tiara

It is just beautiful on her and she wears it so well. I would love to see some rubies somehow added for an event for they would really shine with the diamonds and her hair......

Princess Sofia has been a worthy addition to the Swedish Royal Tiara Brigade. Her diamond and emerald wedding tiara looked dainty and pretty for her wedding and only her wedding. The Amethyst looked as good or as awkward as it does on any of the rest of the Brigade. But the big surprise was wearing the Four Button Tiara and acing it. I thought she had done pretty well until she donned the Napoleonic Small Steel Cut Bandeau and made it her own.

She is simply stunning in the steel cut and should make it her principal tiara IMO.

I usually like small, delicate tiaras, so Sofia's wedding tiara was and is to my taste. Without the emeralds and in new shape it's even more delicate, it really frames her face beautifully!

For me the amethyst tiara is the one that doesn't look good on anyone, including Sofia, which is a shame, since amethysts are my favourite stones. The four-button looks actually good on her, I think it's a little bit peculiar and playful tiara. I don't particularly like the steel cut tiara, but it does look like it was made for her head size and shape and she definately wears it better than anyone I have seen so far.

Hi all! I have been on this forum for quite some time reading and watching and such. I just finally decided to register. Ha! I really like Sofia's wedding tiara both ways but it does look like to me that the base itself is much improved. I am so happy that was done. I also really like her in both the four and six-button tiaras. People aren't saying much about her in the six button but I think she wore it pretty well. She wore it to King Harold's bday celebrations. They are both such unusual tiaras.

This wedding tiara continues to surprise me!! It has turned out to be a very versatile tiara for Sofia. I love the pearls in it. It looks fine without anything but diamonds really and I do like the emeralds. The emeralds have not been worn again since the base seems to have been altered. I think that will make a big difference. We will see. But I love her jewels tonight!!!

The added pearls does wonders for the tiara.

my two cents - I think this rather busy tiara of Pr Sofia needs slightly bigger pearls - but that might be personal taste. otherwise - I am all for it.
