I really didn't expect to see a new tiara at the wedding. What a nice gesture of the royal couple to give Sofia her own tiara. It's a very lovely piece imo. I love emeralds.

I really hoped fo a new tiara and the family had the common sense of buying for her a new one luckily! The tiara is very beautiful, I have a soft spot for emerald... I agree that the earrings didn't quit match with the tiar but they worked in the whole ensemble yesterday.

Well... on itself you can become very well a Princess without a diadem... Some prefer no diadem or a floral wreath. The very blueblooded lady who is Her Imperial and Royal Highness Archduchess Astrid of Austria-Este, Princess of Belgium wore no diadem at all. See picture. (Click on it to expand). And that while she has impressive jewels anyway... See picture. Also the Dutch Princess Christina (sister of Princess Beatrix), coming from a family with a large jewelry collection, went all 'bare' with just a classic 17th C style lace cap. See picture.

A quater of the voters in the wedding tiara poll voted that they believed that Sofia would wear a new tiara. So this does not come as a compelte surprise.
It would be nice if the emeralds were detachable. But if they could be changed for pearls, that might have looked better with the wedding dress. So maybe the emeralds are fixed? I also wonder if the tiara can be worn as a necklace.

It looks like it converts to a necklace. I wonder if it's next outing will be as a necklace (say, at Nobel time, with a Tiara from the Family Foundation), or tiara. Maybe that should be a poll? :)

I wonder if Sofia thought she wanted to wear the tiara just as it was, seeing as it was new and didn't want to change anything about it. The emeralds went well at least with the myrtle in her hair - but really I thought it was quite a subtle change to have emeralds worn by a bride.

If the emeralds are detachable, maybe Sofia will be given some other gems like rubies and sapphires in the future that can replace the emeralds from time to time.

The emeralds are NOT detachable, as seen on the RJWMB: Royal Jewels of the World Message Board: Not detachable

I wondered if, given the Art Deco feel, if this tiara had been purchased from the Estelle Bernadotte estate?

I don't think so. Countess Estelle had numerous occasions to wear tiaras. Why then would she not have shown herself in this perfectly nice and wearable tiara? Or on one of her daughters-in-law? I believe that we would have seen pictures of it, it it had been owned by her.

I can't imagine the the King and Queen giving their new DIL a tiara with fake jewels in it.

Myself I'm not that impressed with the color of them...but I think it's hard to find the darker real emeralds nowdays.

Right no I am talking about the tiara that was a gift from the King and Queen. The earrings have been worn by other members of the family.

If you look under the emeralds there looks to be a latch similar to a pendant latch on an important diamond necklace. Those emeralds just might detach.
