I would agree with you that they look like amber. This is a very popular stone in Eastern Europe. I don't know if it can be carved or not. I don't think it compliments Silvia's coloring very well. My mother has some Russian amber and looks good in it because she has a more ruddy complexion. Queen Silvia is a "winter" and looks better in the jewel tones like green, blue and red.

I didn't recognize the earrings she wore to the dinner. Are they new? Or just infrequently worn?

Queen Silvia wore the diamond Vasa earrings - in most pics they're just seen from an unusual side angle, that's why they look different.

I love that the Swedish ladies don't let there jewels sit too much. Since the Queen and Princess's are all choosing from the same box "so to speak" with certain reserves of course, there jewels get used. I love this I mean...why not. I wear my stuff. The Dutch are like this as well.

Do you think those are cabochon rubies and emerald?

Queen Silvia has practically stopped wearing any kind of costume jewelry long ago, so I'd say that's very possible.

Somehow, I always expect Silvia to wear nothing less than costume jewelry!

The dazzle effect on the first postcard seems digitally enhanced while the second one is a more normal view, though you can detect some sparkle. I'm sure those jewels must really flash immensely under the right conditions, though. Those are gorgeous photos of a young Silvia in some massive pieces; she's wearing the impressive Braganza tiara. Beautiful; thanks for posting, LadyFinn!

Both photos posted by LadyFinn are from the welcome state banquet for Queen Margrethe II during her state visit to Sweden in 1985.
(The first pic is not digitally enhanced - the rays are the result of a filter often used in 'real' photography in order to capture the glitter which inevitably gets lost in every photo, though not on film.)

That's really interesting since the light radiating outward is so precise, symmetrical and aligned, not what you'd usually see in normal photography, hence my impression. Beautiful images. Thanks for the clarification.

New earrings for Queen Silvia during the Finnish state visit today:
Unusual combination of a coral center stone surrounded by (probably) cabochon rubies with small diamonds in-between in a flower setting.
Along with it, she wears her modern diamond bar brooch and a necklace of large natural pearls which I believe belonged to Queen Viktoria originally:
