I noticed that crown princesses often wear their own wedding tiara when attending other weddings.
But Mary wore the ruby tiara on the wedding of Joachim and Marie, so she might wear it at Victoria's wedding as well.
Let's hope that the dress code will include gala dresses. It wasn't in Spain when Felipe and Letizia married.

So far CP Mary only wore the Ruby Tiara in Denmark. ;)
She never wore it outside of Denmark before.
For galas abroad she always wears her wedding tiara.

Well, I hope it will be a Tiara wedding like the other Scandinavian Heirs' weddings were. Carl Gustav's and Silvia's wedding was a hat-wedding ;)

ashelen 02-27-2009 05:40 PM

i wonder why is that?

iakynthi 02-28-2009 07:17 AM

I would love to see Princesses Mary and Marie wearing the tiaras you mentioned and Pr.Letizia with the Prussian Diamond tiara.About the Greek ladies:does anyone know in which thread I could find those tiaras you mentioned?Because I have never seen them before.Thanks in advance!

Rascal 11-21-2009 09:08 AM

Hi, Josefine. Just to clarify...the ruby parure now used by CP Mary did not come from Sweden. It belonged to Queen Alexandrine of Denmark and was given to her daughter-in-law, Princess Ingrid of Sweden. That is the Swedish connection. It was Ingrid who later added elements to convert the tiara from a bandeau-style to its present, full arrangement.

BTW, many of the jewels in former houses came from the Swedish collection of jewels, as indicated below (my comments in blue):

[QUOTE=Josefine;900577]

Denmark
Queen Margaretha - The pearl tiara (just the tiara, I think the rest of the parure already belonged to Denmark) came to Denmark with Princess Lovisa of Sweden, later Queen Lovisa of Denmark.
Princess Alexandra of Sayn-Wittgenstein-Berleburg - has in the past worn the diamond star and pearl upright tiara of her mother. It originally belonged to Queen Sophie of Sweden.


Norway
Queen Sonja - the emerald parure of Norway originally belonged to Queen Sophie of Sweden, and came to Norway with Crown Princess Martha. And the elaborate diamond tiara may have belonged to Queen Desideria, has definitely been worn by Queen Josefina, and also came to Norway with Crown Princess Martha. It is only an assumption on my part, but the twin brooch of the Braganca diamond brooch of Sweden is used in Norway by Queen Sonja, and I think must have come to Norway with Martha as well.
Princess Astrid - sometimes uses the Vasa tiara which belonged to Princess Martha of Sweden, wife of King Olav.
Princess Ragnhild - sometimes uses the looping, interlocked diamond circles tiara with pearl centers that originally belonged to Princess Ingeborg of Sweden.

Greece
Queen Anna Maria - the Khedive of Egypt tiara now used for weddings of all female descendants of Queen Ingrid of Denmark actually first belonged to her mother Margaret of Connaught, Crown Princess of Sweden.

[QUOTE]

In addition, I doubt we would see it, but the Belgians have the pearl bandeau tiara given to Princess Astrid of Sweden for her wedding to the later King Leopold III (unless it has been sold or broken up)

Also, the odds are VERY unlikely, but the aquamarine tiara of the King's mother may not have been sold and could reappear, maybe on the head of his sister, Margaretha, or his niece, Sibylla, OR in a beautifully wrapped case as a gift to Victoria. I always thought this tiara would look great on her. Wishful thinking, though.

To be honest, I'm with the odds makers on the Cameo tiara. And I think if it is done correctly, could look quite nice on Victoria for the wedding. The jury seems split on her mother's wedding day. I am part of the group that considers the Dior gown, veil, and tiara a complete failure. I like the tiara but hate the veil. I get that it was the 1970s, but if a designer is hired to create a gown for the wedding of the Queen of Sweden (which Silvia became that day), then I expect it to actually have a design! Simplicity is one thing...boring is another. Besides, I think the occassion, notoriety of the wearer - Victoria, and the likely use of the Cameo tiara, would be better served with - nothing elaborate - but something more along the lines of a toned-down version of Princess Grace of Monaco's wedding dress updated for 2010. Both Princess Birgitta and Princess Desiree used the tiara to great effect with their wedding gowns from the early 1960s. They were similar in silhouette to Grace but simpler in fabric. I think that is where Victoria (and her designer) should look for inspiration. Just my two...er, twenty-five cents worth. :smile:

But orignally it was made for Désirée Clary the wife of the first BErnadotte King Carl XIV. Johan. She left it to her daughter-in-law Queen Josefina who gave it to her granddaughter Lovisa as a Wedding gift when she married the Crown Prince of Denmark in 1869.

My bad! Thanks Stefan and Boris for the correction, and I hope you forgive me for taking so long to respond. On this issue, I was never clear on the ruby piece belonging to Desiree Bernadotte. Could you please provide a link or referral to the source so that I can research this further? I don't know how I missed this as the Swedes are my favorite royal family.

When you consider that the most prominent pieces of the Scandinavian royals originated with the Swedes, it is really amazing. I know that the British collection will forever be larger than the others, but if all of these pieces had remained in Sweden, their vault would need to be much larger!

If it's an afternoon Wedding i think she might wear the diamond and pearl tiara of her mother which seems to be in her posession now as she wore it for the 60th birthday pf King Carl XVI. Gustaf and also to another Event not to long ago.

Tiaras and jewels at Crown Princess Victoria's wedding
 
what did you think of the choice of tiaras at the swedish royal wedding by the royal guests?

Madame Royale 06-20-2010 06:13 AM

I liked that Princess Martha Louise wore the amethyst parure. It looks better on her than on the Crown Princess, imo.

Was nice to see the Crown Princess of Norway wear a tiara that isn't her wedding tiara. She looked lovely in pearls.

The Queen of Sweden looks brilliant in the Braganza tiara. Great choice, but was expected.

It was no surprise that the Crown Princess of Denmark wore the ruby parure tiara. I didn't parituclarly like the champagne coloured pearls on the earrings though. Not at all.

At first I thought the Connaught tiara looked nice on Princess Madeleine, but I have since changed my mind. perhaps the brown coloured velvet on the base didn't help.

The Duchess of Brabant wore the only tiara she ever wears so nothing much to say about that.

Princess Birgitta looked absolutely horrible. She did no justice to the Nine Prong Diamond tiara.

Queen Rania's tiara shouldn't even be considered a tiara. What a pointless piece of jewellery. Break it up and make a bracelet!

The Princess of Asturias looked lovely in the floral tiara.

Princess Maxima has some magnificant rocks to choose from and I think she chose well.

I'm just glad that the Queen of Denmark didn't wear the Baden Palmette!

Hereditary Princess Sophie of Leichtenstein was by far, the most impressive with that wonderful fringe tiara.

Nice to have seen Queen Anna Maria wear her rubies again.

I loathe the tiara of Princess Alexia. It's incredibly boring and I don't like it's design.

amedea 06-20-2010 06:57 AM

Yes, seeing the Liechtenstein tiara again was such a great surprise, the tiara is stunning!
The most impressive one however is probably the one worn by GD Maria Teresa. It's impressive but still beautiful, I don't think it's too much.
Almost as impressive is the Braganca tiara worn by queen Silvia! It was the good occasion to wear it.
I think that for the occasion Maxima could have worn something more, but I'm also impressed by how big those diamonds are!
The jewels of the queen of Greece are so wonderful!
Finally all the belgians had a tiara, would like to know more about those.. I think Astrid is wearing the only tiara she wear, the one who belongs to her mother in law.

Stefan 06-20-2010 07:32 AM

I also liked most of the tiaras chosen and also that many of the royal Ladies wore different tiaras then they usual do. I only think Infanta Cristina should not have worn a bigger tiara then her mother.

amedea 06-20-2010 07:41 AM

I think the same about infanta Cristina.

Melibea 06-20-2010 07:44 AM

I also think the same, but then I suppose that the queen thought it was appropiate.

I loved the tiara the Sophie of Liechenstein wore, she looked beautiful. I also like the tiara of Maria Teresa but it's too big for her.

MARG 06-20-2010 07:47 AM

For those of us with truely awful memories could someone get a picture and number off the ladies and the jewels so we can put the both together and either a. Drool, or b. Shudder! :whistling:

It's so much easier than trying to discuss . . . you know, the one in the cream/beige/champagne gown sitting in the second row with that thingie tiara? :lol:

stephanievl 06-20-2010 08:41 AM

Princess Claire had a tiara I had never seen before. Does anyone know that tiara?

This tiara probably is more valuable than most of the other tiaras since the diamonds are humongous.
