Queen Sonya was wearing her glorious emeralds in Sweden. She was wearing a bracelet that had a "plaque" of diamonds with an emerald on what looks like pearls. Does anyone have a good pic of this or know the origin? It was stunning!!

But I can't find it any more.
The video is a wonderful source of information in the meantime, btw.

After watching that movie it's upsetting that there are a few tiaras never used, and Sonja barely lends out tiaras to her daughter and Mette Marit.

I was also wondering if Astrid's tiara's go back to the king & Queen when she dies or her children?

I think the tiara will go back to the royal because the tiaras belong to the royal. Astrid just borrow the tiaras.

There are tiaras that are only used by the Norwegian "First Lady" (so currently the Queen). That's why Mette-Marit and Märtha Lousie don't wear them (e.g. the Diamond and the Emerald Tiara). Mette-Marit will wear these tiaras when she's the first Lady (so either when she becomes Queen or when Queen Sonja dies).

On the other hand it was nice to see MM wearing the Pearl tiara. I'm glad the Queen (if she has a say in that area at all) lend it to her daughter in law.

Beautiful video, but I believe that there are a couple of factual mistakes. If I'm not mistaken the sapphire tiara is French and never belonged to the NRF, also the "padicot tiara" once appeared in auction without naming the provenance. (Please correct me if I'm wrong, I'm writing this from memory.) Given these mistakes I'm not sure if we can trust the rest of the information.

Hmm you're right I found the tiara on Sothebys, it seems the maker of the video even used the Sothebys picture. I honestly think the sale wasn't worth it, they didn't get that much money and since they lack tiaras it would be a nice one to loan to MM and ML, Hakoon should of bought it for MM.
Sotheby's - Auctions - Calendar - Jewels

On the other hand the Norwegian RF tried to keep this sale hush hush by not naming the provenance of the piece but nothing gets by us here at TRF!

Thank you for the link. Actually I don't believe that this tiara ever belonged to the NRF. I have never heard of it from any other source than this video, nor have I seen a picture of a Norwegien royal with it. So I rather believe that the maker of the video didn't research properly and made a big mistake with this one.
Here is some information about the Sapphire, Diamond and Pearl Tiara of Queen Marie Amelie of the French. Isn't that the same sapphire tiara as shown in the video? Again I think that this is a serious mistake in that video. This tiara never belonged to the NRF.

Queen Sonja at the Swedish wedding:

1. June 18 - Pre-wedding concert
2-6 . June 19 - the wedding. After Queen Silvia, I think Sonja wore the loveliest jewels, she was certainly the best bejeweled among the foreign guests.

Yes the emerald Parure is beautiful. I only wish she would use more often the Désirée tiara and it's necklace and earrings for Events like this. Or Queen Maud's pearkl tiara in the big version. It are almost always the emeralds.
