It's nice but I've seen better emerald parures. I'm not sure I care for the necklace and the emeralds look like chiclets.

For Denmark I would suggest that the Palmette and turquoise tiaras should be shared as well, while the other tiaras are should be only worn by their current wearers.
I totally agree with you that it is better when the royal jewels are pooled as in Spain, Sweden, Holland and Liechtenstein. Consequently, I criticise Queen Elizabeth II for not sharing her ice more. Indeed, I have never seen a photograph of Sophie Wessex wearing one of the jewellery pieces also worn by the Queen in public. Also, I wonder if Queen Fabiola is holding onto jewels that she does not wear yet will not give to either Paola or Mathilde.

Actually in addition to Queen Margrethe, the Baden Palmette tiara has been worn by Princess Benedikte (as a young princess in pics with her future husband during a party at Kronberg), the Countess de Monpezat, Prince Henrik's mother (during the 25th wedding anniversary celebrations for the Queen & Prince Consort), twice by Princess Alexandra of SWB (both nights of festivities celebrating the Queen's 60th birthday), as well as the original owner Grand Duchess Luise of Baden.

Danish TV is preparing new documentary on royal jewellery

Anna von Lowzow, who made "A Royal Family", is making a new TV-series about royal jewels - together with a Danish jewellery expert.
They are filming in Spain right now.
I think we can expect a nice DVD soon!!! With English subtitles, I hope...

I hope some of our Danish members & friends here,- can share some of the info here on the forums. Would love to have someone who knows the provenance of jewels tell us what we have been speculating on for so long.

Is it known what jewels they will film? I would be surprised if we would be able to see any of the Benelux jewels. I don't think any of them has ever participated with authors etc. before (about jewels). I don't believe mr Vachaudez had acces to the Belgian ones for his book.
But it is something to look forward too indeed!

Wow, this looks very promising! A two-part 'mini series' about European royal jewellery! And as in 'A royal family' a number of royals with tell the stories of selected pieces.
The release date/run time is yet to be announced, but I'll post a link to the DR viewer and cross fingers that there's no geo- block!

I liked it on the pink, really popped. The brooch is so enormous, it would be nice if part of it was worked in with the tiara.
yes....I'm just changing the royal jewels to my liking....!

There is this photo of a very young Ingrid wearing it with Swedish court dress:

There is also a photo of CP Märtha wearing it, supposedly as a loan.
The next photo I have ever see is this of Queen Margrethe, I think it was in South Africa, but I'm not sure:

In between these pictures there seems to be a long blank. But maybe someone can come up with more pictures of the period inbetween?
HM also wore it in 2008 in Tanzania and 2009 in Vietnam.

I'm also wondering is it a set or just few turquoise pieces? Earrings and necklace are similar design but brooch looks more with yellow gold. Anyway I like these jewels a lot (cause I love turquoise). This tiara will be very suitable for young princess (maybe Isabella in the future?).
