Can anyone help?
Has This Greek Necklace Ever Been Worn As A Tiara?, PLEASE HELP!

Mia 08-28-2003 06:32 AM

And where did you get this picture from? I can see a watermark UK or something... Was there a picture text that tells from which event this necklace was worn?

I think I've seen her wear this necklace only once, but I don't recall what the event was. I guess that it is borrowed from some big jeweller like Van Cleef & Arpels, Harry Winston, Boucheron...

USCtrojan 08-28-2003 01:58 PM

It was on a website here on les tribunes somewhere.... Probably in the greek section....... :( I can remember where I found it :( So Sorry!

I would however like to know more about it.

NO, that necklace can not be worn as a tiara as it has dangling diamonds
facing downwards.

If they were "stiff" then there is a mechanism of small tools and a band with
parts to click into place-these were popular up to the 1920s-and this necklace
is 1950s style -to - modern.

Those huge pearls she always wears, usually two strands (one is pictured above), does anyone know if those were wedding presents ?

Another picture of her at the Crown Prince of Denmark's wedding

This is another clear picture, so I think I'll post it anyway though Josephine had already posted a really good one.

Just another one

Her diamond drop earrings looks extremely expensive. The diamonds are quite big which determined the value.

The earrings she is wearing are from Tiffany & Co, yes the diamonds are huge. I wouldn't have a clue how much they are worth, only that they would have cost a fortune!

Mia 08-27-2004 04:04 PM

Somebody mentioned on the Royal Jewels of The World Message Board that the maker would have been William & son. Can't remember the price estimation but it was a considerably large sum so that the diamonds must be of excellent quality - good colour, clarity and cut.

This is the company's site:

Hey, I found from my archives a picture with the information 56,28 cts and 750 000. Phew! And the maker is definitely William & Son.

.... And isn't this tiara very similar to the tiara Reynard posted. Tiara which was worn by Princess Grace 1978.

I would say that they look familiar in a way, but, not too much! However that doesn't mean that MC wasn't out to try and capture the beauty of Graces tiara!

how many necklaces does she have

agisele 03-18-2005 09:25 AM

marie-chantal has really beautiful jewelry. whether it is pavlos or her father who purchases them, they are magnificent gems and look absolutely wonderful on the wearer.

EmpressRouge 06-06-2005 02:17 PM

I read in the book, People & Pearls: the Magic Endures by Ki Hackney, that all three Miller sisters have a fondness for South Sea pearls. You can see Marie-Chantal in many of these pictures wearing a strand of large, high-quality pearls, most likely South Sea pearls because they are often considered the best and most rare of all pearls, making them VERY expensive.

His Lordship 06-09-2005 09:13 PM

Since the Queen Anne Marie really has a smaller collection of jewels compared to other queens, it is possible MC purchased many herself, or he father did.

I know Queen Anne Marie only has two parures to wear, the Emerald set and Ruby set each with a tiara.....but those are for the Queen, not MC.

Although MC does borrow on occasion the tiara Anne Marie's mother Ingrid had made up consisting of the three brooches.

Josefine 03-08-2006 08:52 AM

mc does not wear big jewllery when she is not on royal events
is there any grand necklaces she does use

michelleq 03-10-2006 10:03 PM

I like her Fringe Tiara very much. I know that it is a very popular style, but I do admire the way that she wears hers; further back on her head.
