I don't know of any tiara given by her husband. But then Denmark was a much poorer court than the English, and Norway wasn't exactly a rich country when Haakon became King.

Princess Maud received a diamond and emerald bracelet from the King of the Hellenes as a wedding present. Was it the same emerald bracelet she wore for her coronation as Queen of Norway?

No real confirmation, as there are no photos of the wedding bracelet. But the description matches the bracelet in the coronation pictures, so quite likely.

This stunning Diamond and Pearl Necklace has not been seen for the longest time. I hope Princess Ingrid Alexandra will be the first one to use it after many years.

Is it still in the family strange that queen Sonja has not worn it.

Maybe she doesn't like it or it doesn't fit her very well

Its a very versatile looking piece and wondered what it would look like as a tiara?

That necklace was one of Queen Maud's wedding gifts, and yes, it was convertible into a tiara. I once saw an old illustration of it on it's tiara frame. But there are no known photos of Queen Maud wearing it as a tiara.

I don't really expect to ever see it again. It hasn't been seen on neither Sonja, Astrid nor Ragnhild, which makes me think that it must have been broken up or sold. It's hard to find another explanation for a perfectly lovely and wearable jewel to stay hidden in the vault. The Norwegian Royal House don't have that many heirloom jewels. But of course I'd love to be proven wrong. It would be beyond lovely to see Princess Ingrid Alexandra wearing this lovely pearl tiara!

And to add the last time it was seen oin Queen Maud was at the coronation in 1906. So i don't think it is still with the norwegian royals. But would be intersting to know what happened to it.

That pearl and diamond neclace / convertible to a tiara, has not been seen for decades. In an interview with Princess Astrid, Mrs. Ferner, she stated that they had never seen this necklace. There are only old pictures of it from Queen Mauds younger days. Probably this one was dismantled or sold by Queen Maud. I have another theory about it: When she took all her jewels with her in 1938, and they were stored at Windsor castle from her death (1938) until the coronation in 1953, it could have been disappeared in the vault of Windsor castle. One will never know what happened to it...

The same can be said about Queen Victorias gift, the diamond and ruby riviere necklace in two rows. Strange that there are no pictures of Queen Maud wearing it, and never seen anywhere. Strange to sell the most valuable item from the wedding gifts. A gift from the most prominent person.
