Thanks for the photos.
I have never seen the jewelry before. Look to me like they have more middle eastern design in them. I would assume they came from a royal middle eastern family (Saudi?) when the King and Queen visited them.
I like them better than some more ostentatious pieces Silvia usually wears.

Regarding the new emerald suite, I also like it - a simple yet very effective glittering design, reminiscent of late 1920s jewelry style.
The pictures are from the only occasion the set has been worn so far, earlier this year.
If it should be an Arab gift, it's certainly one of their better choices in jewelry. It's an open question though - Queen Silvia actually has far more modern pieces than visits I can count to Eastern monarchies!
The Connaught tiara is certainly one of the most beautiful of all Royal tiaras.
Queen Silvia wearing it at the Nobel ceremony in 1979, with the Russian pink topaz demi-parure:

…and in Thailand in 2003, along with the Baden sapphire, pearl and diamond necklace:

A wonderful back view of tiara and hairdo, from the 2003 Nobel ceremony:

The Connaught tiara is convertible to a necklace, though Queen Silvia has worn it this way only once.
Its five diamond drops are detachable and can be worn as pendants to form another necklace, which Princess Madeleine frequently does.

You mean the return dinner of the Luxemburg state visit?
Queen Silvia wore the oldest of her four modern sets of emeralds and diamonds, the one she has had since the mid-1980s.
There aren't many clear pics of the occasion online, but here's the link to one:

It is indisputable that Silvia has a very substantial jewelry collection--the royal jewels and her own personal collection as well. I admit, I don't really like that emerald set with the Saudi look--especially with the Yuki red gown--not a good combination.

Indeed, the Yuki gown and the newest emerald set in Las Vegas early this year were a bad combination - color-wise. But style-wise, it would actually have looked great if the same gown was in emerald green, IMHO...
I do like this set (matching necklace, earrings, bracelet) as it might have a very bold design, but there's also an updated Art deco feeling to it. I'd love to see it worn again with a different overall look.
By the way, it's not clear at all whether this is a 'Saudi' set or not... there is no info about its origin, or do you know more here?

Let’s see if this is something I with the help from you all can figure out
When was the first time she wore different jewellery

The first tiara she wore was the Connaught tiara at the pre wedding event june 1976
at the wedding she wore the Cameo Tiara june 1976
The first official photo was of her with the Braganza tiara 1976
The nineprag tiara was first seen at the Nobel 1976
The ruby necklace was worn by Silvia for the first time at the Danish wedding 1995

Braganza tiara was for the first time in Silvia’s lifetime worn outside of Sweden 2007 in Denmark

The nine prong tiara (like the Leuchtenberg sapphires) was first worn during the state visit to the Netherlands in November 1976.
The ruby tiara was worn for the first time as a tiara at the '95 Danish wedding, but Queen Silvia before wore it as a necklace (for the only time) in 1987, during Queen Beatrix' state visit to Sweden.

About ten years ago, Queen Silvia already had the Bernadotte emerald necklace shortened by removing one or two of the emerald and diamond clusters in the back.
Josefine’s picture from 1987 shows the original version, and here’s one from 1998 with the shorter necklace for comparison:

In theory, I guess it would be entirely possible to put it on a frame and use it as a tiara - in a very similar way how the amethyst necklace was converted by Queen Silvia into a tiara.

Wish for swedish emeralds

That would be great with an emeraldtiara, since the former swedish one went to Norway. It´s lovely to see the princesses wearing jewellery. Some years ago it was only the queen, p Lilian and p Christina. I agree that it´s a bit boring to see p Madeleine in the same tiara all the time. I wonder what tiara the future wife of p Carl-Philip will wear. I think we can hope for a new one.

There is no way of telling who might inherit or wear Princess Lilian's diamond laurel leaf tiara (originally Crown Princess Margaret's) before she passes away.
It's most probably going to become part of the Bernadotte foundation anyway.

Well, it's late and toward the end of the first set for Tsonga & Verdasco (Aussie Open). And since they are so evenly matched, I am doing some background research on some jewels. I found this and would like to add the following (my additions in bold):

Quote:

Don't forget Princess Birgitta, Boris. She wore the 6-Button to the King's 60th birthday celebrations. That makes five living Swedish royal women who have worn that tiara. (Make that 6 - it has also since been worn by Princess Christina. That leaves only Princesses Margaretha & Desiree as living Swedish Royals who have not worn this piece)

Here's who has worn the others:

Baden Fringe Tiara- Silvia, Lillian, Victoria, Desiree, Christina. (Perhaps someone who has access to more archival photos or maybe is more familiar with the early part of King Carl XVI Gustaf's reign could advise - but didn't Princess Margaretha and her husband John Ambler attend some or all of the events at his first state visit to England, which would make sense because they lived there. And, if my memory is correct, Princess Margaretha wore the Baden Fringe Tiara. This state visit was before HM married Silvia Sommerlath.)
Braganca Diamond - Silvia (I think only the queen may wear this one).
Connaught Forget-Me-Not - Silvia, Desiree, Christina. (I had a picture saved on a crashed hard-drive. Princess Lilian has also worn this tiara on at least one occasion)
Aquamarine Bandeau - Madeleine, Silvia, Christina.
4-Button-Victoria, Margaretha, Birgitta, Desiree, Christina.
Cameo Tiara-Silvia, Birgitta, Desiree. (maybe soon Victoria, Madeleine, & Emma?)
King Carl XVI Gustaf Fringe-Silvia, Madeleine, Victoria (only as a necklace).
King Edward VII Ruby-Silvia, Countess Marianne Bernadotte (as a necklace).
Leuchtenberg Sapphire-Silvia, Birgitta.
Napoleonic Cut-Steel - Silvia, Christina, Victoria. (Princess Lilian also wore this a few times in the early 1990s - at least once to a Nobel ceremony).
Queen Josephine's Amethysts-Silvia, Victoria, Christina, Margaretha. (I don't know if it was a Nobel ceremony, state dinner, or some other event, but there s a picture of Princess Desiree seated at a banquet table - probably late 1980s or early 1990s - wearing the redesigned necklace as a tiara. In the photo her hair is down, as usual.)
Queen Louise's Diamond Tiara-Desiree, Margaretha, Christina.
Queen Sophie's Nine-Prong-Silvia, Lillian, Margaretha.

I'm pretty sure I didn't miss anyone, unless someone is still alive that I am unaware of.

Great shot by Tsonga, gotta go watch the tie-break! Have a great day or night to all!

Thank you Rascal for the info...
is there any photos of the kinds visit to england out there

the aquamarine bandeau would look so small on the queen

i have been thinking if silvia will be a "änke drottning" Queen downger
wonder if She will use the big tiaras that in many eayes are the queens tiaras.
my thoughts are that she will use som eof them but not the Braganca Diamond tiara. it may also be to heavy for a older person....
