Oh my..thanks for posting this! I have never seen such good pictures of the Vasa tiara! Usually there are only these wide shots of the Royals walking in from the Norwegian court. (Is there any chance you could post close-ups of the Queen and CP as well?)
The Vasa tiara is my favorite of Ps. Astrid's tiaras, although the turquoise tiara is not bad either.

Thanks Humera. I'm hoping we'll see Mette-Marit wear it in the future.

It's really a beautiful tiara and the right size. Not to big and not to small. Unfortuanetly it get's most of the time lost in Pricness Astrid's grey hair and because she wears it lying back and not upright. Perhaps Princess Ingrid Alexandra get to wear it once she is 18 and given it has come then back to the main line.

Wow, that's really pretty! Love that tiara - suddenly one of my favorites. The necklace is very nice, too.

Cool

Thanks Humera! I agree the Vasa tiara is quite beautiful and I'm glad to see it close up. Stefan, you're right in that Princess Astrid doesn't do justice to the tiara's beauty.

Who is the owner of the Vasa tiara? I don't think that I have seen it in the last years worn by Queen Sonja?

Thanks so much Stefan for your clarification. It is really a beautiful tiara. Good to know, that it will go back to the Norwegian RF one day.
Maybe we could do some photoshopping with CP Mette-Marit?

Salma, Humera; do you maybe have any more close-up pictures of either Astrid or Ragnhild wearing their tiaras?

It was great to see the Vasa Tiara and the golden Bandeau in close-ups. It would be great to see one of Ragnhild's tiaras in close-ups too.

What about Astrid's other tiaras?
The Turquoise Tiara and the golden Bandeau... will they also go back to the crown?
And what about Princess Ragnhild tiaras?

As far as i know from Astrid's tiara the turqiose tiara and the Vasa Tiara will come back, and from Princess Ragnhild the diamond tiara which earlier belonged to Queen Maud. But not 100% sure.

It's so good to see a close-up of the Vassar tiara!
What I would love to see is a close-up of the first tiara P.Ragnhild is wearing...I think I read that the turqouise stones were originally on this tiara instead of the diamonds.

I love Astrid, but in the second set of pictures, where she has on the multi-jeweled bandeau, one or two necklaces, three royal portrait orders, her sash, a pin, and large earrings, I think she ends up looking a bit like a Christmas tree.

If there is one stone that doesn't look good in tiaras or any other jewellery for that matter, it's turquoise. I think it's because it doesn't "bling".
Though i love the structure of the tiara..

Agreed - pretty color but just not sparkly enough, especially for a tiara.

I like the turquoise tiara, but is more beautiful the Empress Farah´s turquoise tiara.
