I find that queen silvia pulls off royal jewel sets magnificently especially the sapphire and amythest sets.

Silvia knows how to bring out the big guns in jewelry and wear them with such style, elegance and creativity.

Thank you so much, Josefine; I've never seen this set before. The necklace actually looks like an emerald-studded necktie. Those gems are absolutely gorgeous, but I think the sapphire parure and tiara have got to remain my favorite pieces of all.

Thank you very much Soli deo Gloria and Josefine for the details from the lecture about the Bernadotte collection! Pity that there weren't many new infos, though learning that there was (is?) a twin of the pink topaz set made in Russia was new to me.

As for the modern emerald set, like Josefine said it was only worn once in early 2008, but as it would be totally out of character for Queen Silvia to wear jewelry on loan, I guess it's most likely her own.
I'd love to see it again too, I like the sleek simplicity of its design a lot. Counting this one, Queen Silvia has four different modern sets of diamonds and emeralds in her private collection.

Here are all of Silvia's tiaras the blog the Royal Order has covered so far:

Baden Fringe
Cut Steel
Braganza Tiara
Leuchtenberg Tiara
Cameo Tiara

I love every tiara here.I can't pick a sole favorite.The sapphire tiara at first,looked like it belonged to the French royal family.The sapphires with the diamonds is goregous.The Braganza tiara is one of the most grandest I have ever seen! It's one of of my favorite tiaras.The tiara is exquisite.The design is fantastic!

The Braganza is definitely the big-gun, eye-popping diamond tiara, but I absolutely adore the Mighty Fortress - the Leuchtenberg. Perhaps it's the combination of sapphire and diamonds that forms such a solid wall, or because it's part of a magnificent parure, or just because it's the shape, but I just love that one to death!

In the videos it is also said that the king has included the cameo parure in the foundation and that he might do the same with princess Sibylla's tiara.

On the cover of this weeks Svensk damtidning it looks as if Silvia is wearing a new cameo set consisting of a necklace and earrings. Does anyone have a good closeup? The stones are set in gold and separated by pearls. Has anyone seen the set before?

Queen Silvia has had that set for about four years but it was very rarely seen in public.
The honey-colored large stones are certainly not cameos, but they do appear to be carved, perhaps in Indian style; in blurrier pics, I was thinking of amber, but I don’t think that’s very probable either.
Ideas what it might be, anyone?

Here’s the set on the cover of this week’s ‘Svensk Dam Tidning’:

Perhaps the first occasion it was worn in public, in 2008:

And Queen Silvia also wore the set for the first of the pre-wedding events for CP Victoria, the dinner on board of the ship ‘Goetheborg’:

Couldn’t agree more.
If these emeralds should have been borrowed, it would be the only case ever of Queen Silvia wearing jewelry on loan... IMO quite improbable for her.
I figure you’re referring to this only-seen-in-public-once emerald set discussed above...:

Thank you Boris for the information!

Could it be carved agates? I wonder what the carvings look like. Well, hopefully there will be detailed pictures of the necklace.

Emeralds seems to be Silvia's favourite gem, and I can understand it since she looks great wearing them. Unfortunately there is only the emerald necklace/belt in the collection. I think she deserves an emerald tiara.

I actually do not like the design of this particularly set, but maybe it would look better with another dress. I think the gems of the set should be reset in a new tiara for queen Silvia. Cabouchon emeralds look wonderful in tiaras, in my opinion.

I support your proposal. A new emerald tiara for Queen Silvia. She deserves it.
