for my eyes, this gold-colour doesn't suit her ... to her complexion and grey hair, I very much prefer white-gold, pearls and diamonds

I think so, too. This seems a particularly bright gold that doesn't complement her hair and complexion too well.

That one is a seriously ugly tiara, IMO. Can´t understand the appeal of "all-gold" jewells, they look quite tacky to my eyes.
It´s a nice gesture to wear it since is a gift from Greenland though, I guess many women would have said "thank you" and then put it in the closet and never wear it.

I want to see details. What K weight is that gold? It could have been alloyed to be a gentler yellow. That would have been a better fit for most situations. This is like choosing a neon color for a royal family honour sash.

Those pieces look like made with bad intention.

Well ladies, perhaps you should ask yourselves how will Mary look wearing this tiara?
There is most likely a limit to how many more times QMII will wear this tiara.

Well, boys and girls, a NEW tiara can only be a very goo-ooo-oood thing! Remember, the significanse (grift from greenland) and that the tiara will stay whith the royal collection, whe do have a LOT of little princesses in the tiara pipeline....

It is very ... golden, isn't it?
Can't say I'm particularly fond of it, but I appreciate that it has a special meaning to QMII because it was a gift from Greenland. I actually think it'll look better on Mary because she has this beautiful dark hair (and IMO, golden tiaras always look better on dark-haired heads).

Not a huge fan of the new tiara, but understand it's significance. I think that it may have looked better if paired with a more subtle dress color. Maybe a pretty light pink or soft teal color.

Keep in mind the QMII had input into its design so she might actually love it. She is the lady after all who wears the Golden Poppies

It's slightly better looking than the Golden Poppies, but not by much. It might have looked better on her in her youth, when her hair was darker. It doesn't look good on her now, that's for sure!

I was at the Amalienborg tonight and saw when the danish royals exited the cars. When i saw Margrethe on distance i thought (feared) she had the poppies on her head but to My relief My
Danish friends saw it was the greenlandic tiara. I think it's a nice one. I like the greenlandic golden colour. Her Golden poppies looks more like the colour of urine and not of gold.
But i agree that it would have looked best on à dark haired lady.

All you talk about is looks, current fashion looks, how sholuld we have ANY historic jewels left if it was always to be fashionable? And the wearer, younger, older etc?...It was a very generous gift from the peapole of greenland, and maybe 100 -200-300 years from now it indeed will be very fashionable, It's not a bijouu from a cheap store we are talking about, it is the greenlanders appriceate QueenrMargarethe!

I really rather like the tiara, the shape and natural design of it makes it really beautiful. But all gold is hard to pull off and I think MII did a rather good job of it. The earrings aren't my favorite, but I think they are exactly what out Daisy loves.

I didn't like the Naasut on HM either! It doesn't suit her hair colour and it clashed with her massively blue dress! If 'one' is unkind, 'one' could say that it only matches her teeth!
