Yes, the emerald necklace would make a nice tiara, although it might be a bit too insubstancial for the Nobels. But this dress with the (imagined) emerald tiara and a diamond necklace at a state banquett... wouldn't that be lovely?

It would probably be the samelike the amethyst tiara. She wore it once at Nobel in the 1980's. But i don't like it too much because almost always the frame is visible and because it's a closed circle it's not easy to wear it.

I can't believe they don't have an emerald tiara or parure! However, the sapphire tiara and set looked wonderful combined with the emerald green gown. Q Silvia was stunning tonight!

You are right, the closed circle makes the placement of the amethyst tiara difficult. Imo the diameter of the tiara is too big. It might be better to take out one or two elements. Also all the amethyst elements are the same size, which is a disadvantage for a tiara.
The elements of the emerald necklace are graduated, which is better for a tiara. It might be a good idea to only use part of the necklace for the (hypothetical) emerald tiara.

The bad think is only that apart from the emerald neckllace and the brooch there are no other pieces who cold worn as a neckalce with the possible tiara. With the amethysts the put 2 bracelets toegther to wear it as necklace. I wonder why Silvia never wore the amethysts in it's original form as necklace. As far as i know it is put on the frame in such a way that one could easily remove it to wear again as necklace. But the last wo wore it as necklace was Princess Margaretha at the pre-Wedding Concert of the King and Queen.

The hypothetical emerald tiara would not be bad with a diamond necklace. If we take the dress Silvia wore tonight, a full emerald parure might be too much green anyway.
Maybe the Queen is content with the smaller amethyst necklace. Also we don't know how complicated it is to take the big necklace off it's tiara frame.

Thank you very much for the great close-ups, Monic!
In Pic 2, you can clearly see how much is going on underneath the tiara to secure it in Queen Silvia's open hair.

I'm somewhat surprised that the contrasting jewel tones work so amazingly well. Emerald green and sapphire blue really result in a vibrant combination, more exciting than a tone-in-tone color choice.

If the Emerald necklace was made into the tiara the smaller brooch could be attached to a diamond riviere to make a nice matching necklace.
Emerald Demiparure

The Queen also has a few other emerald necklaces...

Queen Silvia has a total of four modern emerald and diamond sets consisting of necklace, bracelet and matching earrings.

Apart from the two in jonc93's post above, there is this one, an asymmetric necklace with long dangling earrings:

The same set worn at the Washington Mentor gala in October, as requested by Josefine above:

And the fourth is a set with small emerald stud earrings and pendant necklace:

Queen Silvia with the nine-prongs tiara at the Nobel dinner on 2010-12-11: http://inlinethumb51.webshots.com/19...600x600Q85.jpg
Is she wearing the Vasa-earring? I can't recognize them properly.

No, those are not the Vasa earrings; I'm quite sure Queen Silvia is wearing the diamond earrings from the first Bernadotte King Karl XIV Johan's collection:

That necklace looks very similar to Queen Elizabeth's ruby swag necklace was Silivias emerald necklace a gift from the Middle East as well?

I always wondered about the similarity in design of these two necklaces.
The provenance of none of the four modern emerald sets is known. The first one (which is also the first in jonc93's post above) appeared in 1986, the other three all during the past decade.
Perhaps the QE II ruby and Queen Silvia's emerald swag necklace were simply made by the same jeweler; in contrast to the Windsors, the Bernadottes don't regularly go on state visits to Middle Eastern monarchies or receive them in return, collecting jewelry each time, so I'd say that Queen Silvia has been rather busy adding to her personal collection in other ways.
The one exception is Silvia's lavish cabochon ruby set, which was most certainly a gift from the Sultan of Brunei.

Article on Queen Silvias Jewellery

I have been desperately looking for this special article dealing with queen Silvia's jewellery shown in the attached file, but in vain.

Does anyone know the date and name of the magazine in which the attached article can be found?
Or does anybody have a 1:1 colour photocopy/scan of the article (3 pages) and is willing to post it?

Thank you so much in advance for any help!

Hermine

I dont have much help to give, because I never seen the article before and from the picture its not possible to tell from wich magazine it is

BUT the large text on the "yellow" page says: "Silvia is wearing jewelry brilliantly, isnt she! The exhibition in the castle's treasury has been a great success and therefore continue into the summer.It's very festively when some of the jewelry is out of traveling exhibitions - that is, when the queen wearing them on ceremonial occasions"

So; At some point in time the jewelry shown in the article was on an exhibition at the castle - and it should be possible to find out when...

My guess is 1977 .... because of the pictures of the queen: they are both from 1976 (wedding and Nobel) I think that if this had been an article from the 80s or so, there had been more pictures of the Queen wearing a tiara to choose from and then maybe they had not chosen just these two?

Anyway, another huge guess: The articl looks a bit like articles in the magazines "┼ret Runt" or "Allers" or "Allas", not "Svensk Damtidning" i think... but as I said: huge guess!
