The Khedive tiara she wore is just stunning; I love the loops and whorls of the design.

It may be the effect of the gown but doesn't the pendent look like an amethyst surrounded by a an aquamarine?

The Greek ruby parure consists of a tiara in the naturalistic design of olive fruits and leaves, a pair of pendant earrings, a necklace, and two brooches.

Its quite possible,more so after the re-appearance of Queen Sophie's Diamond Tiara!

I really love the aquamarine brooch; the color is gorgeous and the setting is such a beautiful design.

There are a few , but I don't think we can tell for sure if they are still in the family , if they were sold, or if Constantine sisters' inherited them. So far i have counted from various photos 2 rivieres (I believe both came from Queen Sophie)
that Frederika didn't wear much on their own , but used them alot attached to the back of the emerald tiara when she wore it as a necklace, a large ruby cabochon brooch also from Queen Sophie and a smaller ruby cabochon brooch, a pair of cabochon ruby earpendants ( IMO she got those from Paul so that she would have enough rubies before he acquired the ruby parure from his aunt's family) and large sapphire cabochon brooch, matching earpendants and a pendant she used on a bow brooch (btw I believe that Sofia got the sapphires, not 100% sure) a large diamond cross, many open gold bangles with rubies , sapphires ,emeralds etc (I think that these pieces were also inherited by Sofia and Irene) , the diamond necklace Frederika wore beofre she became Queen and of course the convertible pearl necklace that Irene wore as a tiara

No, I talk about a cabochon sapphire framed by diamonds, it was a very classical design. You can see it pinned on her sash on Artemisia's post (#53) in Frederika's thread, Personally, I believe that it was inherited by Sofia (the sapphire she wore on her neck at the Duke Of Brabant's wedding it practically indentical) but of course with such a classic design, it hard to be completely sure if it's a match

I finally found a photo of her engagement ring. I love sapphires but I don't like the design. The double setting is just unusual for me.

Yeah, agreed!

However, with that being said, its unusual look makes it one of a kind in the royal engagement ring department.

I have not seen her wear it. Has anyone else? Has it been passed down to Alexia by chance or is it just that the Queen doesn't wear it?

Here are all the tiaras she has worn:

Khedive of Egypt Tiara
Antique Corsage Tiara
Greek Emerald Tiara
Greek Ruby Tiara

My favorite here is that stunning Khedive of Egypt tiara. The Antique Corsage is also beautiful. Don't like the emerald and ruby tiaras however.

I like 'em all! The double engagement sapphires would be odd to most U.S. women, as it seems difficult to accept anything but a white diamond as an engagement ring. Such a pity.
