Josefine, first of all: Thanks again for posting great pics.
Regarding the emerald necklace you posted on 'Queen Silvia Jewelry II' (Post 54): The necklace plus matching earrings, bracelet & brooch (the last two rarely worn) are modern, and they were a gift to the Queen by the King in the mid-eighties.
But the last pic on your post # 54 (with Queen Silvia wearing a pink dress) shows a totally different set of emerald necklace and earrings. She has only worn it for about two or three years and the provenance is unknown. If you look closely, you'll see that the earrings (much longer & dangling) and the necklace (two cabochon center stones) are indeed different from the other set.
I think the new one was first worn on a state visit to Bulgaria (in 2002?).
So Queen Silvia does indeed have two complete different modern demi-parures of diamond & emeralds.
Plus the historic Bernadotte emerald necklace, of course.
The black pearl necklace with the diamond center and the necklace with very large multi-colourded pearls in grey, black and yellow seem to be new additions to her collection as well.

PS, one question - and excuse me if I'm being naive:
I'm relatively new to this board so I don't quite understand why the thread 'Queen Silvia jewelry II' has already been closed to any answers/new posts? That thread is not that long......?
By the way, the diamond earrings Queen Silvia wore in Brunei (see above) seem to be of modern design too; very unusual shape & very beautiful. I would guess that they were a wedding gift as the Queen been wearing them for a long time but I've never seen a historic photo of a former Swedish Royal lady wearing these particular earrings.

i thought it was easier when sorting out the different jewllery she had to have the thread closed not having posts that are opinion and not facts
this may sound strange..
then when ready i do not know if it will be merged with this one or keep it closed as a fact thread and fill the thread as it comes new photos of the jewllery or new jewllery

i decided to merge the threads

The ring in the picture is not Queen Silvia's engagement ring. I remember reading somewhere that she got a classical diamond solitaire ring (app. 2 cts) which, either the stone or the whole ring, was inherited from the King's late mother. There haven't been any really good pics of the ring.

I think that the floral earrings Queen Silvia wore in Brunei and CP Victoria at the Spanish wedding are quite old. The style and the setting in the largest stones look very archaic. But I would assume that this old earrings would have hooks and not sticks... Hm, maybe they have been modified a little.

The amethyst necklace is made of two bracelets, at least according to the picture in which Queen Silvia shows the amethyst parure rearranged.

The Leuchtenberg sapphire parure includes BTW also two hairpins. The earrings are remounted from another pair of hairpins.

The historical emerald necklace is a donation to the Bernadotteska stiftelserna by Carl XIV Johan. The necklace was originally a shoulder strap worn in ceremonial uniforms. Woah!

Somebody once stated that the diamond buttons, another donation from Carl Johan to the Bernadotteska stiftelserna, are of two different designs. Therefore the unusual even number of flowers on each tiara.

I still seem to have great problems posting. My message was erased... :(

The picture above isn't of Q Silvia's engagement ring which is a classical diamond solitaire with app. 2 cts stone. The King inherited either the stone or whole ring from his late mother.

The Leuchtenberg sapphire parure include also a pair of hair pins. Another, slightly larger pair of hair pins have been remounted as earrings.

The historical emerald necklace is a donation from Carl XIV Johan to the Bernadotteska-stiftelserna. The necklace was originally a shoulder strap used in a ceremonial uniform in the French court.

The diamond buttons which are another donation by Carl Johan are said to be of two different designs. It's hard to see differences by the normal a bit blurry magazine pictures. But the differences could well explain the a bit unusual even number of flowers in the tiaras.

I think that the floral earrings which Q Silvia was wearing in Brunei are of an old make. In a good and clear photo you can see the old fashioned settings of the largest pear-shaped diamonds.
