Hereditary Grand Duchess Stéphanie of Luxembourg Jewellery
 
Yesterday Countess Stéphanie de Lannoy and HGD of Luxembourg have announced their engagement.
Though we haven't yet seen THE RING, this pic of her arriving at the palace today prompted me to open her very own jewellery thread.

Those earrings are statement piece and I find them gorgeous. Are they real? Maybe amethyst and granate? I somehow can't imagine such big rubies at daytime on such a young girl. But who knows?

You are right. The earrings are gorgeous, even if they're plastic. It is acceptable to wear colored stones in the daytime. Actually, she may be in eveningwear. They do look like semi-precious stones, garnet, imperial topaz, citrine, amethyst and peridot -- top to bottom. I may be mistaken about the topaz. Nonetheless, beautiful.

I didn't mean that coloured stones aren't appropriate. But rubies in that sice would be quite expensive, which is why I guessed (and mispelled) garnet. I agree that they look like semi-precious stones. But I only see two colours, garnet and amethyst.
But surely more pics from different angles with different lightening will appear soon.

Love the ring. I like it much better than Catherine's but then I prefer diamonds to sapphires any day.

The ring is classic. I like it elegant simplicity.

The ring is of a quintessential Art Deco design. Known to be bold in statement (though not to everyones liking), I'm personally very fond of the strong geomterical patterns and angular shapes associated with such futuristic and industrialist design inspirations.

Cubism is another widely employed influence.

Very classic.

Wow Madame Royale! You got quite a bit on the pictures of the ring! :) It's always great to see someone expand on something and give a good explanation.

All I can say is that it's a beautiful ring and I do, also, like it more than Kate's ring.

Agree on all counts. Love the ring - especially the band - beautifully executed.

Also, looks so lovely - looks like a very kind person, very gentle - and at ease with herself.

I love those bold earrings and the colors; it's really great to see someone able wear statement pieces with such panache. And that is a whopper of a diamond she's sporting; beautiful setting and thank you also for the detailed explanation, Madame Royale. I wonder how many carats that diamond is? I personally like the traditional diamond engagement ring as well.

Gorgeous earrings! Chosen to match the clutch and shoes, no doubt.
The ring is beautiful but a bit too squarish for my taste.

sugarbaby318 04-27-2012 11:16 AM

Love love love her ring! It's stunning.

agami.pearl 04-27-2012 12:52 PM

I love the ring, is big but not too big and presents well on her hand. Gui chosen well. Earrings are nice too, I'm wondering what by stones they are made.

Jahkoo 04-27-2012 06:54 PM

The earrings remind me of swarovski design bijouteri

IloveCP 04-27-2012 07:03 PM

I absolutely love the ring! The band is very beautiful also. Such an exquisite and elegant ring!

Beautiful ring and earrings...

Here's a closeup of the ring again.
