This is a magnificent set, sapphires are always divine! Silvia can pull off complete sets pretty well, in general.

And when she wears the accompanying sapphire hairpins in her amazing tiara hair, it's just a gorgeous sight.

...and once (Nobel ceremony 1993), Queen Silvia even added the brooch of the Leuchtenberg sapphire parure to the hairpins in her fantastic hairdo:

Queen Silvia yesterday evening at Representation Dinner at the Royal Palace. Princess Victoria didn't attend, so no tiara for her.

She's wearing the Nine-Prong Tiara; not one of my favorites but it looks great on her always-wonderful tiara hair. Also a beautiful diamond collet necklace with a dangling drop pendant.

She is a lovely woman and she has the use of some beautiful tiaras, this one looks like a cheap part hat.

I DO like the nine prong tiara, and thought the necklace was nice too, it fit the neckline of the gown nicely, IMO.

Silvia wearing the Six Button:

Pic

I never thought she wore this.I always thought this tiara as a "princesses only" tiara.Personally,not a tiara fit for a Queen.I am glad she only wore it once.

The six prong tiara is really a beautiful piece--closeups of the buttons are impressive--but the effect of the tiara depends on the hairstyle. The tiara needs some hair behind it to really showcase it to it's best advantage, I. My opinion.

Lovely Tiara indeed. She looks beautiful and I like the color of her dress.

Dear Josefine (or another Swedish-speaking poster), what is that supposed to mean exactly?
And are there any other new details from the lecture about the Swedish jewels which we didn't know before?
I'd appreciate very much if someone could translate/summarize them.

Lars Yngve Johansson is talking about a sister of Maria Pavlovna who also got a parure from her/their father and it is exactly the same as Maria Pavlovna's.

Sandra Brauns is telling this about the Braganza tiara: "Dont belive what the ladys magazines is telling about its weight! Its not true the weight is 3 kg, the weight is 3 hg!!"

at 3:37 she is speaking about Queen Sophias' garniture: cameos made by malachites together with gold - no longer in use, belongs to Nordiska Muséet.

The nine prong tiara was, as we know, made for Queen Sophia ( she wasnt expected to become queen, because she was married to a younger brother (Oscar II) to Karl XV and had very few jewls to start with...) and it was "built on" an already existing comb.

At 12:08 Vasakläppen and the collier attached to it: the collier got diamonds cut in an old fashion way (the way they cut diamonds before they started to do brilliant cut) and each diamond got 57 facets (56 for the brilliant cut)

The "buttons" at 13.43: some of them, and parts of them (2?) was attached to Erik XIVs crown (The "Kings crown" of Sweden) to cower Eriks initials (ER - Ericus Rex)- other kings didnt want his initials on the crown and then removed when the crown was restored in the 70s

The pink topaz parure 15:15: the corsage got 3 pedants, and 2 of them are also used as earrings.

What a special tiara! I think Q Silvia can pull off any big tiara with much grace. The Cameo tiara looked equally beautiful on Victoria on her wedding day, IMO!
