They have two turquoise necklaces:

I have to admit I like the way that HGD Stephanie wore it. The way it is just sort of plonked on the very top of Alexandra's head looks like she has her very own halo.

More interestingly, to me, it seems it is just a tiara and noticeably has nothing whatsoever in common with the rest of the parure. The style and elements are at complete odds and I can't help but feel that one on the tiaras in their vault used to be graced by gorgeous turquoises that were considered "passe" and replaced by something else.

Now qwe can see that she also has some tuqiose point on her gown.

I still think that the turqiose tiara has a difficult shape.

I agree that the turquoise tiara has a difficult shape. It ends so abruptly and the sides flare out in a strange way, so it always looks so awkward when just put on the head. It needs to be worked into a bigger hairstyle in a way that fills up the ends a bit more. Imo, HGD Stephanie so far managed the best hairstyle for this tiara.

But I applaud Alexandra for giving different tiara a go. So far she has had 10 tiara events and has worn 5 different tiara. That is quite to my taste.
small floral tiara: 3
citrine bandeau: 2
Chaumet choker tiara: 3 (with and without the pearls)
aquamarine bandeau: 1
turquoise tiara: 1

And an interesting tidbit about the turquoise tiara: So far, it has been worn 4 times, and by 4 different ladies. None of them has yet repeated this jewel, so I'd say it is clearly not a favourite with the Lux royal ladies.

I agree, this is a tricky tiara to get right, and I am not sure I have seen it done quite right just yet.

I wish she would stop wearing her mothers gowns which make her look much older than she is....

Not just older, but a bit larger :( If you put on some weight, you choose something darker.
