Queen Mary seems to be wearing all or most of the Cambridge and Delhi Durbar parure in these pictures:

What a beautiful necklace(and earrings) Are they new?

Exclamation

Emeralds are my favorite gemstone. IMHO the Iranian and British pieces are the best overall collection of these. Ena of Spain also had a phenomenal set of them.:)

I really like Queen Sonja's emeralds. Even the tiara with the square emerald. Maybe it was at a bad angle or was it her hair? You'll find it back in post #18.

Nope. Sofia wore them at Felipe's & Letizia's wedding.

I don't know to me it still looks like they just stuck that square emerald at the top because they couldn't think of anything else to do with it. I think without that it would be a very lovely tiara since it is so tall already. But that is just my opinion.:p

I really don't like the square on top of that tiara. It just looks out of place with the rest of the piece. I think it would be an absolutely stunning piece otherwise, but no amount of hair can be used to soften it when you have that huge thing sticking out of the top!

I think that emralds fit more to Letizia than th blues saphir that she was wearing at the evening's diner of her wedding. Generally speaking emerald is a good stone for the Princess of asturias; the ruby too, remember the Frederic's wedding !

The Emerald Jewels of the Dutch Royals!
I can't find the emeralds on this website (but I do like the feature of comparing runway fashions with the way royals wear them. Could we make that a thread in the fashion section?).

I love emeralds - they are my birthstone, but I'm not fond of the Iranian emeralds as I think they are just too big, bordering on gaudy. I also don't like cabochon emeralds such as the British Cambridge emeralds/Delhi Durbar, or Queen Anne-Marie of Greece's parure. In fact, I'm not fond of cabochon stones at all.

I guess I'd prefer Queen Margarethe's emerald parure in style (but not the yellow gold) and Queen Sonja's (set in white gold/platinum).

I found my favorite!

I was looking through Geoffrey C Munn's 'Tiaras: A history of Spledor' and found my favorite! It's on pg. 224. I don't have the capabilities or skills to upload a picture - would someone please be so kind to do this? Thank you!

The caption reads "A gold tiara set with emeralds and diamonds, from the French crown jewels. It was made by Evrard and Frederic Bapst between Sept. 1819 and July 1820 for the Duchesse d'Angouleme, daughter of Louis XVI. Made up in part from stones from the crown collection, it was a favorite of Empress Eugenie. The tiara was sold at auction by the French in 1887. Private Collection"

It's also in Geoffrey Munn's book 'Tiaras: Pasat and Present' on pg. 41. The caption there adds the following information - "There are 1031 diamonds and 40 emeralds set into this remarkable ornament. When the crown jewels were eventually dispersed in the sale of 1887, an observer remarked that anyone who had not seen it 'does not know what an emerald is...the green stones alternate with brilliants in such a manner that there is an interplay of coloured light, the effect of which is magical.'"

I think this tiara/diadem is much prettier than those currently in use by royals. I wonder where it ended up.
