Since she's just given Norway a new heir to the throne, do you think Mette-Marit will recieve any new jewels to commerate the event? I'm hoping for another tiara that's a bit grander. I love her other one, it suits her well and goes with everything, but, it's rather small compared to some Crown Princesses' (or even princesses's ) tiaras.
A new necklace/ring/bracelet would be nice as well
I don't know if she would formally get any jewels from the royal vault or wherever all those lovely tiaras and necklaces, etc. are housed. But it would be a nice gesture and perhaps not too far off for Haakon to give his wife something. My mom got a bracelet after I was born and a pair of earrings with my brother's birth.
The earrings was King Olavs silver wedding present to his wife crownprincess Märtha, but she never got to wear them because she died about two weeks later, after that the earrings went to Sonja and she borrowed them to Märtha Louise at least once. MM got them as a wedding present ans she wore them for the first time at the prewedding dinner, she has worn them many times since.
(Also her engagement ring is from CP Märtha, she got it from Olav and Sonja got the same ring from Harald and now MM has the ring, very nice tradition I think.)

Its the same amethyst tiara she is wearing during the recent Italian visit. It can also be worn as a necklace, like Queen Sonja wore it during the prewedding dinner for H an MM at Akershus. The necklace can as you see be converted into a tiara, it was a gift from the King to the Queen for her 60th (i think) birthday, she has maching earrings, a bracelet, a brooch and another necklace. During the statevisit from Itlay MM wear the brooch as a pedant on a diamond necklace. http://blade.vg.no/bilder/bildarkiv/...8068.39262.jpg
A tiara from Queen Maud that can be worn as a necklace, llike Mette-Marit did for her prewedding dinner, so far noone has worn it since, strange since I think it looks very nice as a necklace and she doesent have alot of them
1 Three string pearl bracelet, wedding gift from Haakon anlong with a 3 string necklace
2 Pearl and diamond earrings
3 and 4 Since she is a little to young to have her own jewellery tread, I include here the christening gift to Ingrid Alexandra from the King and Queen. Its a diamond heart with a ruby in the center on a thin pearl string, it once belonged to Crownprincess Märtha. On Picture 3 Queen Sonja wears the heart
