The contemporary emerald set belongs to Queen Sofia, who has worn it frequently - also for the wedding of Felipe and Letizia.

Beautiful set and I'm sure the emeralds enhanced Leti's eyes. Nice to see her wear important jewelry.

Emeralds are my all-time favorite stones and like seeing Letizia wearing them.

Isn't there a particular royal family that has biggest collection of emeralds in their royal collection ? I believe it to be the Romanian royal family.

Certainly not the Romanians - they have very little grand jewellery left of any description.

I would guess the Brits. HM has so many brooches and stuff that don't get worn much so if we were to count.... which I will attempt, I'm going to say Queen Elizabeth!

We'll never know of course, but in terms of size, maybe even the Royal Families of Thailand or Brunei.
Whatever the case, it's a good excuse for a brief excursion outside Europe...

1, 2 & 3. Queen Sirikit of Thailand, emerald & ruby necklace, emerald belt, emerald suite
4. Queen Saleha of Brunei emerald parure
5. Crown Princess Sarah of Brunei wedding emeralds

That is my all-time favorite emerald tiara. It would be my second if the Empress Marie-Louise's tiara (the one currently in the Smithsonian) hadn't been butchered.

The last one linked is nice but I definitely prefer the one made for Empress Marie Louise.

Now that looks like Grand Duchess Marie-Therese tall fortress tiara. I don't know if I care for this too much due to the height (if I don't sound too insane saying that!), but I do like the French tiara posted by ILoveCP. The emeralds look almost blue in that light; gorgeous!

Here's a photo of it being worn. In terms of size it looks closer to Empress Josephine's emerald tiara owned by the Norwegian Royal Family.

(side note: can anyone tell me who is wearing the parure in the photo I linked to?)

Thank you for that link; it certainly looks better worn in the more modern style.

Emeralds are my favorite gems and this thread has some wonderful examples. My favorite one is still Queen Mary's parure from the early 20th century-a really fantastic set. Thanks to all for the great pix!
