I am wonderfully surprised that she wore this tiara. I've been wanting her to wear and I'm glad she finally did. The tiara and the rest of her jewels are stunning.

Its great to see Victoria with a new tiara but after seeing Madeleine with it...I liked it better on Madeleine, not that Victoria looks bad with this gorgeous tiara.
I just don't like the new base, nor do the aquamarines work with brown eyes the same way as with the blue eyes, and this shade of blue dress didn't go with the aquamarines, and add that too severe and flat hairstyle...yes, she didn't mesmerize and have the same effect on me as Madeleine did.

I agree with Mari-Anne. Victoria looks very good in the Kokoshnik, but it's Madeleine who really makes it shine. I also think it has something to do with her blue eyes.

It's like the Baden fringe + Victoria combination. Just perfect.

Victoria has wonderful tiara hair. Just not the right style for this tiara.

Though I agree it looks good with her dark hair, I prefer it on Madeleine. I think it suits her styling better and it makes her eyes pop.

Could the King of Sweden buy his Mother's tiara from His eldest Sister ? as he did before for Count Sigvard tiara.

I don't see why not. Or his sister may choose to leave it to the family trust. It is now kept in Sweden I believe and worn by Madeleine and now Victoria. I wouldn't be surprised if it remained in the trust after his sister dies.

It suits Princess Madeleine better not sure what it is tonight but the tiara doesn't look right on Victoria but that might her gown that has put me off.

Great to see Victoria wearing Laurel Wreath Tiara again, it has such a history and I think Victoria is having a special feeling every time she wears it. It is also nice to see Victoria wearing this necklace again, it is many years since she wore it. Plus points that she didn't have too big jewellery with this dress, so that the dress gets the attention it deserves.

As for the hairdo with this tiara, Lilian had also often a similar gap with this tiara than Victoria has.

Victoria had today the same earrings than yesterday.

I do like this tiara on her BUT I don't like the position of it or her hair with it...but to be fair I almost never like her hair because it's pulled back so tightly all the time.

I love the large brooch on the Order sash, it looks very grand and compensates for no necklace but the earrings, while gorgeous, were too often tangled in the high ruffles of her dress to be appreciated and had the weird effect of shortening her neck!

The tiara, hmm I think the gown was designed to reflect deeper colour and Victoria's dark hair definitely looks better with the tiara. However, Because of the high ruffled neck of the gown, Victoria's hair was done more on the severe side at the front, the back reflecting the usual SRF magic.

But adding a rivere of large diamonds to the bottom of the kokoshnik was like adding glitter to floral arrangements. No, just no. She ruined a beautifully symmetrical tiara by adding diamonds larger than those on the tiara and made it look kind of fake.

I do like this tiara on Victoria, but it lacks something, maybe height. To me, it looks a little too low. But it is still lovely on her, and she wore a really nice gown to compliment the aquamarines. But as others have said, Madeline makes it shine. I would like to see Sofia with this tiara. With her dark hair and blue eyes, I think she would be stunning.

I give CP Victoria full-marks on wearing the aquamarine tiara, but that tiara is meant for Princess Madeleine - no one else can do that tiara justice like Madeleine. So, it's a miss for me.

CP Victoria should have worn the Baden Fringe tiara with the dress.

The aquamarine kokoshnik is gorgeous, but the way Victoria wore it was a bit underwhelming, and yes, I mean the "pressed down in the front, big mass at the back" hairstyle. It might have worked with the Baden Fringe, but without some fluffy tiara hair, the shape of the kokoshnik combined with her facial features is not flattering at all.

I would prefer to see some hair instead of the diamonds covering the base of the tiara.

It's not a miss for me but I agree that Madeleine wore the Aquamarine Kokoshnik like no one else can. It took my breath away and thanks to that appearance, the tiara has made it's way into my top 10 favourite tiaras. The combination of Madeleine's blue eyes and the aquamarine stones couldn't have been more perfect. Victoria slightly less so, but still beautiful.

For me, the Aquamarine Kokoshnik is Madeleine's best look, whereas Victoria always nails the Cut Steel Tiara.

The gap between the rows was softened by the bouffante white hairdo of Princess Lilian. On Princess Victoria it is very much a gap. I would have re-set the height of the top row. Nevertheless a piece of great craftmanship, that jewel.

I don't like the tiara, but her necklace seems nice from what I can see. Hopefully there's a better picture of it somewhere.

The gap in the tiara is determined by the size of the diamond drop between the the two rows of laural wreath. Yet I think that it is highlighted by Victoria's pulled back hair. It looked softer when Lilian wore the tiara.
