As far as i know they are not Queen Victoria's earrings but have been removed from a necklace which belonged to Queen Alexandra. Thdere are others Jewels in the Norwegian RF who come from the british RF like the Malteser tiara or the turqiose tiara who is worn by Princess Astrid.

Oh you are quite correct - Queen Alexandra wore them as pendants on the diamond and pearl necklace from her wedding parure; but they were worn as earrings by Queen Victoria.

Really? On close examination they have always looked the same to me.

Can't really see the earings but I find the necklace rather ugly.

I guess the necklace is a very 1980s design. Just wait a few more years, and it will be bang on trend again.

Queen Sonja's tiaras:

The Royal Watcher

My favorites are Queen Josephine's Diamond Tiara, the emerald tiara, and the pearl and diamond tiara. The worst here has got to be the gold tiara!

I agree with you, the modern gold tiara is.............. in the same category as the Golden Poppies of Denmark.

Its been a while since I have seen Sonja in the Maltese Cross. Any recent sightings?

Does the Maltese Cross Tiara have 3 or 4 crosses? H.M.Queen Sonja appears to be wearing one of them as a brooch in this photo.

The Royal Order of Sartorial Splendor: Tiara Thursday (on a Friday): The Malteser Tiara

This tiara is one of my least favorites in the royal family. I agree that it is odd looking. The bandeau of it is not special to me either. I actually love Queen Alexandra's version. It has a very regal presence. Though I do not like how Queen Maud wore it. Nevertheless the tiara has a very interesting history however, I am not a fan of it at all.

It does look odd,more so since they removed the diamond fleur de lys from the tiara.Not sure why they did that or what has since happened to them?

It would be nice to see the tiara but back together in its original form again.

Amethyst Necklace Tiara
Diamond Tiara
Emerald Parure Tiara
Maltese Cross Tiara
Modern Yellow Gold Tiara
Pearl & Diamond Tiara

Thanks in advance!

Short time after she became Crown Princess Sonja wore a small tiara (or a bracelet?) that seems to a piece made of diamonds and emeralds. She wore it with the necklace and earrings of the Emerald parure.
Does anyone have an idea which piece of the Emerald parure this "tiara" might be?
I think she never wore this "tiara" again.
