Ah, yes, the Wonder Woman Tiara, aka the Mighty Galactic Tiara!! On the plus side, Sonia also has beautiful tiara hair so can carry this one off, But I'm sure Mette will have plenty of tiaras at her disposal other than this one!

And as for the emerald tiara, I'm not keen on the chunky emerald headlight in front, but considering the staggering amount of stones and the sheer beauty of the tiara otherwise, I would not turn my nose up at it.

Or maybe Martha Louise would wear it someday since she has the same quirky taste!

I personally love to call this the Star Wars or Star Trek Tiara!

Although I like the shape of this tiara, as well as the versatility of the center stone choices, there is something about the vertical lines with tiny diamonds peppered in void spaces that bother me.

Maybe Martha Louise could add all diamonds in these slots for a more regal (and less outerspace) look when and if she gets this tiara.

Maybe one of our talented photoshop members could show what that would look like?

Just thinking.............

Thanks so much for these images, I too have wondered what the close-up looked like, especially the earrings.

How very Art Deco - the necklace and the double clip brooche. I am not sure I have seen it before. Anybody has some more information - on both pieces?

And as a side comment - I thought she looked lovely this evening - most of her dresses are rather - hm- unique, but the dress hair style and jewelry was really flattering.

Queen maud's diamond and pearl tiara is beautiful and yet the original was misplaced in the 90s when it was sent for cleaning and a replica was made and that is the one Queen Sonja wears now. is this true? nonetheless i love it along with Queen Maud's other jewelry.

I wouldn't call it misplaced. It was stolen by robbers who broke into Garrard's store in 1995.
Tiara owned by Norway's queen taken in raid - News - The Independent
It makes me cringe to think that such a historical artifact and important heirloom was (most likely) broken up and destroyed by those filthy thieves.

I wonder if this

Was the stolen tiara mentioned in the article? Such a shame, if so......
