The Sapphire royal jewels are just lovely on Queen Silvia. I just wish her gown had been a few shades darker blue to compliment the jewels better.

Queen Silvia is probably the only Queen that matches perfectly the fairy-tale view we have of a royal lady with the majestic of her title. It's a delightful mix between the romantic side of royalty from the past and the State image a Queen must have.

Just look how she wore in pure perfection the collar of the Order of the Elephant. One gets the idea HM always take care every detail of her image.

Thanks for this clear photo, Boris.

Yes, for me Silvia is the epitome of a fairy-tale queen with her phenomenal arsenal of jewels, artistic hairstyles, beautiful gowns and ability to carry off the entire look with majesty and grace.

That's a staggeringly beautiful set; I think it's got to be my favorite among all her jewels. And this lady's got plenty!

Has Silvia ever wore the Fringe Tiara? I have never seen pictures of her wearing it.Victoria wears it often.

Queen Silvia used to wear the Baden Fringe tiara quite often during her first two decades as Queen but always shared it with Princess Lilian.
Since CP Victoria was first seen with it in 2001, her mother has stopped wearing it.

Silvia wearing the tiara in 1977:

Thanks for posting Queen Slivia in the fringe tiara, I've often wondered the same thing!

I think that this pic is from 2001, at a visit to Russia.

Has Princess Lillian still worn it after Victoria started wearing it?

The state visit to Russia in 2001 was indeed the last occasion on which Queen Silvia wore the Baden Fringe tiara.

Princess Lilian continued to wear it - here she is at the Nobel Prize banquet in 2004:

The experiment was not repeated, and looking at the pic, one can understand why.
Queen Silvia wears all of her tiaras to great effect upright instead of flat, but the unfortunate six button/rosettes tiara simply has to be worn flat at a backwards angle to look at least somewhat appealing.

Agree agree, but I think the way Silvia wore the nine prong tiara at her first Nobel 1976 is quite "flat" (or at least in a different angle from how she has worn since then): ImageShack® - Online Photo and Video Hosting

Unfortunately, the 4 and 6 button tiaras have, more often, not been a success with Queen Silvia or Crown Princess Victoria. The Royal who could really wear these tiaras and looked great was Princess Lillian. Silvia gave it a wearing at least.
