I found an official picture of princess Benedicte wedding, I have noticed that the tiara Anne Marie has wore is very similar but doesn't have same height. My guess is, it is the same tiara which she can put on/off some part of it, but I am not sure. http://img389.imageshack.us/my.php?i...nemarie2wt.jpg

Is this Anne-Marie's or a copy? It'd be a shame if she was selling it.

Does she still have it? Does anyone have a photo of her wearing it recently?

I don't believe they are the same necklace. Let me see if I can describe this. If we look at the design of the necklace it is like a braid. The "inner" part of the braid connects with other parts of the inner braid and the "outer" parts of the braid don't touch other outer parts. So look at the picture of Anne Marie and notice that the inner part of her necklace is diamond. The Christie's necklace has a ruby inner part. A side by side comparison helps.

I have a vague recollection of having read once that Anne-Marie and Constantine actually did sell these ruby and diamond jewels - perhaps it was in connection with their long stay in Rome where they might have needed funds. Can't find anything about it on the Internet though.

When you did the side-by-side comparison did you use the photo of Anne Marie and the Christie's photo? The photo of the jewelry just below Anne Marie's picture is the same as the item for sale at Christies so don't use that for the comparison.

Here's a side by side comparison:

It looks exactly the same to me.

But then again Van Cleef and Arpels could have made more than one set. From Ursula's site, she claims Queen Anne-Marie's set was made in 1961. In the Christie's website, the set they are auctioning was created in 1964. It's not unusual for them to create more than one set although they probably wouldn't create this in the hundreds.

I think it may be the same set because Anne Marie doesn't wear it anymore.
Maybe when they were exiled in Rome they had to sell some jewels in order to get some money, at least it wasn't an historical jewel.

To me it seems strange that Queen Anne Marie sells this parure as it is the engagement present from her husband... It would be the same as to sell your weddingring!

Does anyone know the significance of the pin she always seems to wear on her sash? She has had it since she became queen. A gift from her parents maybe? Or something from her new in-laws?

I don't think it's the same. QAM's is necklace, bracelet and brooch, whereas Christie's is necklace, bracelet and earrings. It's conceivable that the jewelery made more than one set depending on available stones.

The most important jewels she has are the Russian emeralds which were part of Grand Duchess Olga's dowry when she married George of the Hellenes (Prince Vilhelm of Denmark).

There was also a beautiful diamond tiara that Queen Sophie may have received as a wedding gift when she married then Crown Prince Constantine. Queen Fredericka was often photographed wearing it, but it appears to have been sold during exile.

I don't think the Greek princesses own any tiaras, (with the exception of Marie Chantal I think) they borrow from their mom's depleted collection

Queen Anne-Marie hardly has a depleted collection. She inherited another historic tiara on the death of her mother. She owns the Cartier tiara that was a wedding gift to Princess Margaret of Conaught when she married the Swedish crown prince. All of Princess Margaret ( Margaretha)'s female descendents have worn this tiara on their wedding day. Anne-Marie also has the ruby tiara ( originally Queen Olga's) and the large emerald one. The Greek royals still own the large tiara that Queen Frederika regularily wore, Anne-Marie doesn't wear it. She received a tiara from her parents for her 18th birthday and this is the tiara that Theodora wears. Alexia has also worn this tiara. Alexia has her own tiara given to her as a gift on her 18th birthday from her parents.
