Article on Queen Silvia's jewellery

Thank you for your suggestions. I have been wondering just the same.
My most liklely guesses concerning the magazines are "Vecko Journalen" and "Hemmets Veckotidning", the former no longer in print.
I have been also contacting Allers media and the Royal Court for help but they have no idea either.
I know about the exhibition in 1977, having got a small booklet about it too.
But the article offers nevers seen before pictures of the jewels - therefore my interest.

So I have to wait, maybe somebody will come across this specific article by chance?

Thank you again!

My mother read "Hemmets Veckotidning" in the 70:s and I (who was reading it to fint pictures of Silvia ) cant remember seeing this article, so my guess is "Vecko Journalen" - but I can of course be wrong Maybe I can go to my mothers house and take a look, Im sure she kept all thouse magazines...

In the new official photo of Silvia, is she wearing the earrings Victoria wore at the King's Dinner after the Nobel's this year? And and info on this brooch, I don't think I've ever seen it before.

The pear-shaped pearl earrings from the Bernadotte collection are indeed the ones worn by CP Victoria for both Nobel nights this year.

The diamond and pearl brooch originally belonged to Queen Viktoria and has been worn by Queen Silvia continuously throughout the years.
Princess Madeleine wore it as a necklace pendant, attached upside down, for the ‘Day After’ Nobel dinner in 2009, and CP Victoria as well at a King’s dinner last January.

Correct - when she received the order of the Amaranther several years ago, Princess Madeleine wore the brooch as part of a silk band choker around her neck (along with Queen Silvia's modern diamond fringe tiara):

No, this is not the aquamarine pendant worn by Princess Madeleine, which has a definite aquamarine color and a distinct setting.
Queen Silvia wore this (diamond or maybe just rock crystal?) pendant quite a few times in the early years.

It's a very beautiful and classic brooch, but I don't like it worn like that. I hate chokers anyway.

I agree it works much better as a brooch, and not a choker. I'm not too fond of chokers the feel & look uncomfortable, IMO.

Silvia wore the connaught tiara, a 3 row pearl necklace and a pearl dimond gold brosch last night at the diner for the stonien state visit


How many 3 row pearl neckleces does silvia have?
and if i look at photos, this brosch has not been used at galas to many times.

Cool

I was delighted to see Queen Silvia wearing the Connaught tiara as a change. The Nine Prong tiara is beautiful, but it seems as if the Queen was wearing too much and it was getting a bit boring for me. I hope Silvia wears the ruby tiara sometime soon.
