Yes, I think, the multi-coloured pearls are larger and surely modern, but maybe the double-stand necklace is the more valuable one, as is is older, and maybe the pearls are REALLY natural ones....

If the two sets of multi-colored pearls Queen Silvia owns consist of cultured but naturally grown pearls (like for example her necklace of Tahitian black pearls, which reportedly took quite some time to assemble), then their value is also considerable, though not their historic value - yet.
Queen Silvia’s second multi-colored set of smaller pearls with matching earrings:

I would take the double-strand pearl necklace over those multi-colored ones any day. But I have to admit the dangling pearl earrings have me in raptures! Those look like the size of marbles. Can anyone post a link to Silvia's Tahitian black pearl necklace? That's got to be gorgeous.

I am not a fan of the multi colored pearls.

Definitely Queen Silvia has a very large collection of pearls and all are beautiful in there own way. I loved almost all Silvia's jewels, they are elegant and modern , and she wears a very ROYAL like a truly Queen

Here, Queen Silvia is wearing her understated set of Tahitian black pearls with pavé-set diamond center and matching stud earrings:

And a pic of her more elaborate necklace of grey pearls, in a modern but somehow archaic-looking, possibly Indian design - set in yellow gold with cabochon rubies, diamonds, a carved central stone and diamond drop pendant:

I happen to love South Sea pearls, and I think Queen Slivia has an amazing collection, and wears them very well. when you see South Sea pearls in person, they have a luminance that doesn't always translate well in photographs, IMO.

It was indeed. The Connaught tiara is incredible; romantic but not 'over the top'. So beautiful.

To the best of my knowledge, last night was actually the first time that Queen Silvia wore the Connaught tiara with her own contemporary fringe tiara-necklace, a combination which worked very well.
Interesting view with the side lighting bringing out the structure of the necklace:

Absolutely beautiful; the Connaught is one of her lighter, more delicate tiaras.

I thought Queen Silvia's combination of tiara, necklace, and earrings worked flawlessly together!

Those Swedish tiaras are just big.

Looking good with the dress.

Yes, the mighty Leuchtenberg Sapphire tiara. That is one gorgeous wall of diamonds and sapphires. And the rest of the parure is magnificent as well. I wonder if she's wearing the sapphire hairpins.

Here's a nice back view of Queen Silvia from tonight - she doesn't wear the hair pins from the parure, but a beautiful tiara hairdo:

Thank you for the link, Boris. What this lady does for tiara hair is what a sculptor creates from marble. Maybe a bit OTT with the compliments, but Silvia understands the principle that in order to display a magnificent tiara to full effect, one must have the proper hairstyle to showcase it.
