Why would Alexia have received this set? She would have needed to pay a lot of taxes I'd imagine; as it doesn't seem cheap - and that would be rather weird if the intention was to sell it off.

Isn't it more likely that it's queen Anne Marie herself who decided to sell it?

Queen Anne-Marie's stunning diamond cross which was worn on her wedding day and was a gift from her parents.

Concerning AM's emerald parure, was there a different necklace that once belonged to this set? I know the tiara itself can be converted into a necklace, but AM usually wears a diamond necklace that once belonged to her grandmother Queen Alexandrine of Denmark with some of the emerald brooch pendants hanging from it. Even in the early pictures of QAM in the emerald parure she's wearing this necklace. Was there once a different necklace in the set, and if so what happened to it?
No it always been a brooch and 5 drop formed emerald pedants

I know that this tiara is worn by all female descendants of Princess Margaret of Connaught (to whom it was given as a wedding gift) and that it was taken to Denmark by her only daughter Queen Ingrid. Surely this makes it an integral part of the Danish, Swedish and Greek royal families and it should not be seen as belonging to any one of them.

In my opinion it's rightful place is in Denmark and, perhaps it should only be worn by the brides on their wedding day.
It was ment to be given to the dotter who should marry first

Queen Ingrid also left Beneditke other pieces such as diamond earrings and necklace once belonging to Queen Alexandrine, a rubyand diamond brooch and earrings, an amethyst parure consisting of a necklace, bracelet, earrings, brooch and bracelet, a diamond and pearl button brooch, a necklace comprised of three rows of pearls, diamond and pearl earrings, four diamond stars, and she also inherited Queen Ingrid's Star and Pearl Tiara. As you can see Beneditke was hardly left out and has a very large jewelry box. This list does not even include her personal pieces and those that belong to her husband's family of which she has access.
HRH its still a senior member of the danish royal family and she can always borrow from the danish royal jewels i think

There was also a beautiful diamond tiara that Queen Sophie may have received as a wedding gift when she married then Crown Prince Constantine. Queen Fredericka was often photographed wearing it, but it appears to have been sold during exile.
HRH princess Marie Chantal wore it at the the 40th celebration of Queen Margarets on the throne at 15-01-2012

But then it is surprising that Princess Alexia received another tiara as an 18th birthday gift. At the time it was very likely that Alexia would marry long before her much younger sister Theodora. So Alexia will one day have two tiaras and Theodora maybe none?

But with four tiara of her own, there is no need to borrow Danish jewels, imo. And the DRF don't usually do much jewellery sharing. It has been very rare that Margarethe lends out her tiara, although Theodora once wore her turquoise bandeau.
