This is an excellent photo as it gives the tiara some depth and sparkle - in some photos it can come out looking quite flat.
This diadem was not made by Cartier. The jeweler who made it is unknown.

I am quite sure, that the Faberge eggs on her necklace are real jewels, as the Faberge decendants are producing them until today.
But you are right, it is too mixed up.

What an elegant pearl brooch! Wonder why she doesn't wear it anymore...

I'd prefer a single egg pendant, as they are very hot right now, and not this bunch of eggs around her neck.

The Royal Order of Sartorial Splendor: Tiara Thursday: The Mellerio Shell Tiara

Love this tiara! Never knew about the diamond drop but I prefer the tiara without it. I love the shell design with the pearls. I think this tiara is exquisite!

It is so elegant and the workmanship really makes for some serious sparkle. I think I would want it sitting out all day so I could just look at it

I like the little chain with the evil eye, very Greek but perhaps also Spanish

(but the stringy necklace with small beads)

The evil eye necklace is really cute and always en vogue. I don't really like the other chain necklace, nor the earrings. They look outdated.

Did Queen Sofia inherit any jewellery from her mother ?

She has a big ruby brooch that belonged to her mother. She has worn it as pendant on a necklace sometimes. And ofcourse the prussian tiara but this was probably a gift as she got it when her mother was still alive.

The most easily recognisable piece is the ruby cabochon pendant/ brooch that Stefan mentioned above. I personally believe that she also inherited some, if not all , of Frederika's cabochon sapphires , and two or three of her large gold bangles - the one with the cabochon rubies, another with amethysts and a plain gold ( but of course this kind of jewellery is such a basic design that I could be wrong. Perhaps there are also other pieces, but since Frederika had the really bad habit of favoring the most regal pieces on her collection even for daytime appearances , it is not easy to identify them

Yesthat was a wedding gift from Frederika, not inherited after her death. The rest of the diamonds she wore on her wedding ( earrings , and necklace with cross and an alternative pendant) came from her father I believe , and she got a bracelet form her brother and sister , with sapphires and rubies, but I don't know what bracelet that is
