Yes, the Imageshack pic isn't very clear but that's the Braganza tiara.

Here's one very lucky Queen! Correct me if I'm wrong, I also think she has a large collection of pearls (and not only white pearls). It would be lovely if we had a photo of her pearl jewels (all gathered, like the tiaras)!

You are correct, Queen Silvia has a very large personal collection of pearls.
There is a complete set of black pearls, one of grey pearls, two sets of multi-colored pastel pearls...
Princess Sibylla's two-row necklace, Queen Josefina's three-row necklace, the necklace from the first Bernadotte King of large oriental pearls, Qheen Viktoria's one-row necklace of grasuated pearls...
...a shorter three-row necklace, a twisted pearl and garnet necklace, a twisted necklace of strings in different sizes, plus several necklaces of one row in different length... etc. -
That would be a lot to post, really.
Let's see what happens.

Gee, I thought I had counted 11 pearl necklaces when you said that there are also several other necklaces of one row... So, I quit! Hard task, but thanks for your reply!

Here's a formal picture of Queen Silvia wearing the Bragança tiara which I think was taken soon after her wedding.

But the one I'm looking for is a little bit more recent (2003 I think) : Silvia stands alone on one picture, and stands with her husband on the second one...
maybe you're talking about these

I am wondering if someone knows where the big pearls that once could be on the Leuchtenberg tiara are today, are they still in the kings possesion? Would have been a nice bridal tiara for Victoria in my opinion

No, the pearls are not in the King's possession anymore.
Unfortunately, the eleven upstanding drop pearl spikes which could originally replace the sapphires in the tiara were inherited by a side branch of the family and used as necklace pendants.
I always thought that it would be a very smart (and savvy) idea to acquire new drop pearls to use in the tiara and thus re-create its alternative version.
The settings for the pearl spikes still exist behind the sapphires, and a pearl and diamond tiara is one of the few things which are currently missing from the Bernadotte collection.

Perfect choice! The Braganza tiara is absolutely appropriate for the CP wedding, and the pink topas suite is great with the dress.

So perfect! Matched her dress and matched the flowers, perfect size, perfect glitter-ness.

I also think Silvia's choice was perfect. Her jewels looked so magnificent. The tiara is very impressive and would often be too much, but for the occasion it was just perfect!

The Queen made the best possible choice yesterday. The Braganza tiara and the pink topaz parure looked magnificent on her and also matched the pink gown perfectly!! :)

Queen Silvia's gown was certainly made to wear with the Russian pink topaz suite, and the fabric and lace dyed exactly in the same shade as the stones.

She wore both brooches of the pink topaz suite - the large corsage brooch on her shoulder, and the smaller brooch on the sash in her back.
Here's a nice back view:

As for the Braganza tiara, it's the first time she wore it with open hair, which worked surprisingly well (...though I have no idea how this large tiara stayed in place so impeccably).

Another close-up of the tiara

It's a gorgeous tiara. I wonder how massy it is.

I remember QEII saying that one her tiaras, which is similar to the broganza tiara, weighs 2 bags of sugar.
So most likely Silvias weighs the same.
Imagine putting 2 bags of sugar on your head!!
Talk about a major headache.

I can imagine . Queen Beatrix once said she prefers wearing small tiaras, because the lage ones cause major headaches.

According to Court Jeweler Bolin in an interview which he gave to Swedish mag SDT a few months ago, the Braganza tiara is actually lighter to wear than people tend to think - which surprised me as well.
A piece like the heavy-set Nine Prong tiara appears to be more uncomfortable to wear in reality, also because the Braganza is almost a closed circlet which distributes the weight more evenly than a tiara which graduates more, is higher in the front and heaviest right above the forehead.

Good side view of Queen Silvia at the wedding wearing this 'Wall of diamonds':
