I can not see the corsage brooch clearly, but I am wondering about the bracelet she is wearing on her left wrist. Is it an emerald in the center to match the emerald cross? Has anyone of the royal ladies worn it after her death?

Well, one must say Queen Louise was an elegant lady.

The lovely ladies of the SRF seem to be pretty good at using their jewellery. I would be surprised if there was much unused jewellery lying around.

A perfectly good tiara in the vaults, and Queen Silvia ignoring it? I don't think so . Silvia is too much of a tiara lover to let something like this ly dormant.

I think there is very good chance that the Nicolo Parure is still in the vaults collecting dust. Judging from the pictures it a quite colourful parure with blue, black, brown and reddish agates all with different motifs. Finding an outfit that would match this parure would benext to impossible. Back in the day colourful jewellery might have been fashionable but today I think it would be seen as kitsch
Like any queen I think Silvia loves her jewellery, but she is much to classy to wear something that might make her look less regal.

Probably most Royal families have jewels of that sort lying around.

As clearly stated on the site behind the link posted by Josefine: "Today the necklace, brooch and the pair of earrings are in the collection of Chaumet in Paris."

So why should the tiara be the only part of the parure left in the RF vaults? That doesn't make much sense to me. Apart from that, I'm absolutely convinced that Queen Silvia has the panache to pull off such a piece of jewellery, if she had access to it.

but i wonder why Chaumet does not have the tiara if they have the other items.

the small cut steel tiara with comb is said to been laying in the voults and 2012 worn by the crown princess for the first time

is it a difficult tiara to be worn with several colours?

I'm wondering if anyone can help me with this "mystery tiara" worn by Silvia. I first noticed this picture when I landed at Arlanda a year ago (it's part of Arlanda's "Welcome to my hometown"-greetings) and I'm completely stumped as to what Silvia is wearing. I haven't seen anything like it in the Swedish vaults so I'm wondering if it was borrowed for this occasion? Unfortunately the quality of the pictures that I managed to find are pretty bad, but hopefully someone will spot what it is and have an answer.

I'd love to see Queen Silvia wear these some day,I'd never heard of the Nicolo Parure until now!

The bracelet on her left hand was a gift from the citizens of Stockholm and the whereabouts are now unknown. Sad isn't it! It is thought that Louise's jewels went to her side of the family after her death.

Thank you for the information!

Do you also know what stone it is?

The tiara is a silverwedding tiara with a matching lapel brooch for the groom. This type of sets were very common in Sweden and ,I think, in Germany. The tiara and the brooch are made of silver. You can see that the king is wearing the brooch. These sets were worn for the silver wedding celebrations, and exactly the same type but in gold were worn for the gold wedding, but these are quite rare. I have wondered if the set was once worn by Silvia's parents.

Thank you Josefine for showing us this set!
It looks like a wonderful empire parure. I had seen the photograph of queen Josefina before and wondered about what diadem she was wearing. Can someone tell if there are cameos or intaglios in the parure?

I do not think the tiara is in the vaults. It is such a beautiful and rare piece that I think Silvia would have worn. She wears the big cameo tiara wonderfully even though it is difficult to match. I think the reason the small cut steel tiara hadn't been worn is that it is small, too small for the queen, and of a cheap material(not royal enough). The big one on the other hand is big and an exquisite work of jewellery. The combination of the brass and steel, the lifelike leaves and acorns makes it a piece of art.

It's a lovely tradition, but I don't know of these silver wedding tiaras here in Germany. I must admit that I'm no expert for social customs, but it's nothing that is widely known where I'm from.

I was poking around today and I found this tiara and pin which looks very similar.
