According to what the Court has communicated it used to be a necklace so maybe its possible to remove it from the tiara frame its set upon now.

I would like to see it as a necklace and am curious to see what it looks like. Let's hope that the tiara can still be taken off the frame. Though I imagine that it is easier for the jeweler to create a frame with a permanent fixture of the jewel.

Who would have thought that this tiara is so versatile and changeable. The turquises looks surprisingly good and make the tiara higher and more impressive. Also liked the matching earrings.

I like turquoise, and these look like very fine examples of a particular type of turquoise, but I'm not liking the proportions on this particular tiara at all. I agree that the emerald toppers would have looked better in this instance, not something I ever expected to say.

Good quality turquoise, depending on the variety, can be as or more expensive and rare than a lot of gemstones, so it isn't the turquoise itself that is the problem with this tiara, it's the proportions.

Yes! Thank you so much!!! It is so hard for me to do it on my phone. I just really liked looking at all the versions in one place.

It will be fun to see if any more variations are added. Someone said somewhere last night that pink topaz would be a good choice. I think a pink/red stone would be wonderful! She now has blue, green, and neutral with the pearl and all diamond versions.

Princess Sofia wore her wedding tiara (all diamond version) and the amethyst earrings on December 11:

I love that shes adding new stones, but Im disappointed that she seems to be limited to her wedding tiara since the remodel. I hope its only because she likes to play with it for now and that she goes back to the family vault in the future. Its especially boring when there are two tiara events day after day.

I think she's worn one of the Steel tiaras at least a couple times since her wedding too...but honestly they don't have that many tiara events a year.

I wish that Princess Sofia would wear a different tiara other than her wedding tiara to every event,though her imagination is applaudable with adding different stones it would be nice to see another diadem on her head.

She has worn several different tiaras while hers was being remodeled (small cut steel, amethyst, four buttons, six buttons), but not since.

And actually Sweden has a relatively high number of regular tiara events every year – 2 days Nobel, 1-2 representation dinners, 1-2 incoming state visits, etc.
Sofia attended 5 tiara events in 2018 and 4 tiara events in 2019, but she’s worn her wedding tiara to all of them.

Sofia is actually one of my favorite wearers of the Six Buttons tiara so Id like to see her wear that again.

Her hairdo with other tiaras is much better.

I’m not impressed with this tiara in general, but the turquoises are beautiful.

I didn't like the small cut steel on her at all (maybe the dress combination but more of this tiara is not for her....). I tried to love the amethysts but I think they are slightly too big for her and she cannot compare how CP Victoria or P. Madeleine are wearing them.
Interestingly, the buttons seem to work for her - like for Princess Lilian....

Bigli Jewels about Sofia wearing three rings from their Mini Sweety collection at Julian's christening.
https://www.instagram.com/p/CSuiZSMsR-Y/

At Svensk Damtidning's article
Jewelers Laurence Aerens and Thierry Spitaels say that they are deeply honored:
- It is an incredible honor for us that Princess Sofia chose to wear Bigli!
Camilla Coene at Starstudio PR, which represents Bigli in Sweden, says that Belgian brand Bigli is new in Sweden, not many private individuals have worn it yet, but Bigli Jewels has been seen on some swedish well-known women.
The combination that Prince Carl Philip has chosen for Sofia costs SEK 62,000.
Sofia's gift consists of three rings that sit next to each other and form a unit, and according to information to Svensk Damtidning, this is the push gift from Carl Philip: The three rings symbolize the couple's three children.
Camilla Coene says that Carl Philip has bought it for Sofia as a gift, Sofia has received it recently and she is very happy and proud of them.

Photoshopped nearly beyond recognition, as is usual for the Swedish royal photographer. But the earrings look lovely and the remodelled tiara itself is wonderful in its versatility.

In other words: the original version of the tiara was awful.

The new tiara frame is wider and perfectly curves around the head in a very becoming way. The earrings from the amethyst parure are really lovely with that gown. But the style of the photo...
