I like the Connaught tiara on Q Silvia - I loved it on Madde too - though I'm not too fond of this particular combination. This tiara with pearls?! A no-no IMO.

King Carl Gustaf and Queen of Sweden attended the bicentennial ball of the Swedish Amaranther order in Malmö tonight.
Queen Silvia is wearing the complete Napoleonic amethyst parure again for the first time since the Danish CP wedding in 2004.

The amethyst parure is very well matched with the gown. And Queen Silvia had a good hairstyles for the amethyst tiara, which needs a lot of volume in the hair. Because it is very wide, it often looks like it is sticking out at the sides, especially when worn by Victoria.

Cool

It's usually just the Ameythst tiara or the parure when worn with the rest of the ameythst pieces. I don't think it has a particular name.

Love the jewels.
The set is simply called the "Napoleonic amethyst parure", as it was made in the early 19th century, originally belonging to Queen Josefina, and is a fine example of Empire jewelry.
Queen Silvia hasn't worn the complete parure for almost seven years, and I'm glad to see her wearing it again. IMHO it never looked quite right on CP Victoria, whose head and face shape it just doesn't really fit, while it's perfect on Queen Silvia.

As you certainly know Josefine, the one tiara from the Bernadotte collection which Queen Silvia has never worn is the 4 button/rosettes tiara (wise, wise...).

I think the last time she wore the ruby tiara was December, 11th 2009.
When did she wear the steel cut tiara for the last time?
I think that the Baden fringe is now exclusively worn by the Crown Princess. So maybe we won't see Silvia wearing it again.

I like the amethyst necklace and earrings more than the tiara actually. The whole set looks lovely on Q Silvia and she couldn't have found a more appropriate dress to match the parure! Well done!

For Josefine and Tilla C.:
The cut steel tiara was last worn by Queen Silvia in January 2007 for one of the King’s representation dinners at the Palace, with the cut-steel choker and earrings.
She wore the cameo parure last during the state visit to Austria in November 2007.

I also believe that the Baden Fringe is considered to be exclusively worn by CP Victoria now.

I love the Amethyst tiara, but Imo looks much better on Silvia when she wears it with an updo.

do you think it would be possible to have an other frame, not so "high" for the tiara, making it closeer to the head, or would this be more uncomfortable to wear?
