Swedish royal jewels in past

I found on Profimedia this picture:

It's queen Victoria with Leuchtenberg sapphire parure.
So I thought it would be interesting to see some Sweden's historic jewels

Remamber that the 2 main Parures belonging to Norway, were once in Swedish possesion, given to CP Martha on her marriage to the CP of Norway! Also the ruby and Diamond parure, once belonging to Queen Ingrid, now being worn by CP Mary was once of Swedish possesion.

The emerald parure was given to Crown princess Märtha when she gave birth to her son Harald in 1937. And Queens Desiree's Dioamond Tiara was inherited by Queen Lovisa of Denmark after the death of her grandmother in and later by her daughter unmarried daughter Thyra who left it to Crown Princess Märtha.

The diamond and ruby Parure now in the danish Royal Family stayd only in the Swedish Royal Family for 2 generations. Queen Desideria brought it with her to Sweden and left it to her daughter-in-law Joséphine who left it to her only granddaughter Lovisa.

Don't know which she wore in the early years but she was given the Vasa Diamond Tiara now worn by Princess Astrid as a wedding Gift from the City of Stockholm so probably she wore this one.

A bit of a late answer, but still, here it is.
Queen Josefina left the entire cameo parure to her daughter, princess Eugenie. She never married and left it to her nephew, the equally artistic Prince Eugen, the youngest son of King Oskar II and Queen Sofia. He was also unmarried and, of course, had no need for a tiara. I think he lent it to ladies in the family, at least CP Margareta and the then Princess Ingrid has worn it. When Prince Gustav Adolf married Princess Sibylla of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha, Prince Eugen gave the cameo parure to the bride as a wedding gift. She later left it to her son, the current King Carl Gustaf, and the question now is wether the King has added it to the foundation or if it's his private property. The same goes for the Connaught tiara, which he also inherited from his mother.

Princess Eugenie did a lot of charity work and founded a hospital called Eugenia-hemmet. To finance the hospital, she sold a lot of jewellery she had inherited from her mother and grandmother, thankfully she kept the cameo parure.

Here a picture of Karin, the first wife of Prince Lennart Bernadotte. Does anybody know anything about the tiara she is wearing?



--

I suppose GD Maria Pavlovna sold all her jewels, so Lennart didn' t inherit anything from his mother?

I'm also curious about this tiara, I've read parts of a book by Lennart Bernadotte and I found no mentioning of tiaras, although he talked about Karin and his mother and losing his title &c..

This image from IBL shows Count Lennart with Countess Karin and their daughter Cia. I don't know when it was taken, but here both ladies are wearing small tiaras, though not the one posted above. Are/were these owned by the Count and his family or can they have been loans? The one Countess Karin is wearing looks a lot like Crown Princess Victoria's first tiara, but maybe that one is smaller then this.

I´m a new member and saw this thread just recently. Very interesting!

I would like to know more about five tiaras worn by Swedish Royal Ladies today, and hope it's OK to write them in this thread. Sorry I haven't sent any pictures, but my tecknical skills are ... And I have to learn more about the copy-right rules as well.

Here's my questions anyway.

1) When Crown Princess Margareta died in 1920, her five children inherited her jewellery, and they all seems to have got at last one tiara each. (Prince Gustav Adolf - the Connaught Tiara, Prince Sigvard - the Ruby tiara from Edward VII, Princess Ingrid - the Cartier Tiara, Prince Bertil - the Laurel Leaf tiara.) Did Prince Carl-Johan (now Count Bernadotte) inherit a tiara as well? His forst wife Countess Kerstin Bernadotte writes in her memoirs that she wore a beautiful Sapphire tiara, once owned by her husbands mother. I have seen photos of Countess Gunnilla Bernadotte with a tiara, but never read any information or seen any close-ups. I would be very happy for information!

2) Princess Margareta (born 1934) and her daughter sometimes wear a "aquamarine tiara" (for example at Princess Christina's wedding 1974). Could anyone tell me more about this tiara?

3) Princess Birgitta (or her daughter) sometimes wear a tiara with circles of pearls. Does anyone know more about this tiara?

4) Princess Desirée often wears a tiara shaped as a triangel, quite Art Deco IMO. I have seen pictures of Queen Louise wearing the same tiara.
More information ver appreciated!

5) Princess Christina often wears a simple but very elegant tiara with "low spikes", for example at Nobel 2008. I would be happy for more information about this tiara too.

1): That’s an interesting question, I would have to look that one up because it’s ringing a bell... But I don't want to mix up facts so I will verify it first.

2): The large aquamarine tiara is not only a beautiful but also an important piece. It used to belong to Crown Princess Margaret and was given as a wedding gift to Princess Sibylla from her husband. In the Kokoshnik style, it features five large aquamarines with diamond flower motifs in-between.
It was given to Princess Margareta, the King’s sister, upon her marriage, and she loaned it in 1998 to her daughter Sibylla to wear it at her wedding. Ever since, the tiara has disappeared, and it was probably sold when Princess Margareta’s late husband Mr. Ambler ran into financial trouble.
There are rumours though that this beautiful tiara might be seen again in the future... Still rumors, so I can’t elaborate on that.

3): This tiara of diamond circles with a pearl in the center of each circle belongs to Princess Birgitta, who received it as a wedding present from King Gustaf Adolf and Queen Louise. Princess Birgitta lent it to her daughter Princess Désirée for her wedding as well as to Princess Maria when she married Birgitta’s son Hubertus in 2000.

4): The first owner of the diamond tiara belonging to the King’s sister Princess Désirée was by Queen Louise, and it was given to Désirée as a wedding gift.

5): Princess Christina’s own diamond fringe tiara once belonged to Queen Sofia. It left the main branch of the family and was inherited by Queen Sofia’s granddaughter Elsa Cedergren.
She became Princess Christina's godmother and in turn gave the tiara with its Royal provenance back to the main Bernadotte branch by giving it as a gift to her.

Thank you, Boris, for all the interesting facts about the tiaras! Now I have another question... Princesses Margareta, Birgitta and Desirée got a tiara each as a gift when they married. Did Princess Christina also got a tiara as a wedding-gift? Or is the Elsa-tiara her only private tiara? I know her mother Princess Sibylla died in 1972, so she couldn´t give her youngest daughter any present, but maybe Princess Christina's brother did?

Princess Christina quite often wears tiara's that belongs to the Bernadotte-foundations or her brother, like the Cut-Steel-tiara, the Connaught tiara and the button-tiaras. Does the king's other sisters have the same possibilities to lend tiaras (and other jewellery, of course)?

I don't recognize Marianne Bernadotte's tiara at Josefine's picture, but I hope someone else will.

Regarding Princess Christina, Queen Sofia's diamond fringe or 'Elsa' tiara is the only one she owns personally. It was just recently set in a new, higher frame, which is not really an improvement, IMO; that's how the wore it for the Nobel Awards ceremony.

Marianne Bernadotte's tiara is hardly visible in that pic so it's difficult to tell, but it's most probably her own diamond tiara, which was bought for her by her husband and has no former Royal provenance, if I remember correctly.

The King's sisters continue to have access to the Bernadotte Foundation jewelry 'pool', as far as those pieces are concerned which are not exclusively worn by the Queen. For their brother the King's 60th birthday gala in 2006 for example, Princess Birgitta wore the six 'button' tiara, and Princess Margaretha the amethyst tiara created by Queen Silvia from the parure's large necklace.

Thanks again, Boris! It´s nice that the king´s sisters wears the jewellery too, and the Bernadotte family do have so much beautiful jewellery to chose from.

I'll take a closer look at Princess Christina's tiara. I always thought it was so elegant and nice and suited her perfectly. Not all changes are for the better, though.

And one more question - Princess Birgitta's pearl-tiara. Does it have a family background, like her sister's tiaras?

The base of Princess Christina's tiara was changed very recently, just before this year's Nobel ceremony I believe. I always liked the delicate piece as well, but now it sits high on something like a comb for a base, at a strange angle tilted backwards and with the sides disappearing... pretty good view from the banquet last week here:

IBL Bildbyrå | 0435 44 07 65

I think it's a pity, as I don't see what was wrong with it before.
The Bernadottes have found quite a perfect way to distribute their jewelry IMO, with a few pieces meant to be worn exclusively by certain ladies only, and the others forming a shared 'pool' - a good compromise.
I dislike the habit of 'everyone-can-wear-anything' (like in the Dutch RF) just as much as rigid rules of never sharing jewels (like in the Belgian RF).
I'll have to check up on the circle tiara as well to see if I find the specific provenance mentioned - but I seem to remember that the tiara is also a historic Royal one.

About the diamond and pearl tiara from Princess Birgitta i think i read sometime ago on the Royal jewels MB that she given it a a gift to her daugther Désirèe who also wore it on the 60th birthday celebrations of King Carl SVI. Gustaf in 2006. Not sure but i think i have seen a photo of Désirèe on that occasion.
