I like all of Silvias tiaras but she do have 3 of the most beutiful tiaras that has ever been made anywhere in the world.
The Braganza Tiara, The Sapphire Tiara and The Cameo Tiara :)

It's sad that they don't have matching tiaras to the pink topazes and to the bernadotte emeralds.

The Royal Order of Sartorial Splendor: Tiara Thursday: The Edward VII Ruby Tiara

I simply love this tiara. It's a stunning and regal design. One of the most unique and beautiful tiaras I have ever seen.

Queen Silvia's jewellery at the State dinner of the state visit to Germany yesterday

And today at the return dinner

Both appearances are disappointing. First that awful Connaught Tiara and now the Baden Fringe Tiara, she should have left that to Victoria to wear. The brooch is big though.

We all have our opinions. In my opinion the Connaught Tiara is awful because it is not regal at all, it looks like it was made to some fairytale movie. It could be worn as a necklace though.

The Connaught diamond tiara is not awful at all. In fact, the closeup look in your link above shows what a magnificent piece of jewelry that tiara is. The Baden fringe on the other hand is quite appropriate for a German state visit due to its German provenance, and it is also an impressive tiara with 47 (!) diamond rays.

The Connaught tiara is stunning. 'm glad she is wearing the Baden Fringe tiara again. It's been since 2001 since she last wore it.

She looked wonderful in both tiaras. I am sure she wore the Baden because of her visit and her hair really looked gorgeous with it not to mention all the other jewels. Same earrings each night?

Thank God she was wearing 2 different tiaras in a row.
Thank God we have seen her in the Baden Fringe again - after many many years.
Thank God Queen Silvia can surprise me again and again with a new piece of jewellery!

The Baden Brooch! What a pleasant surprise! Did she hide it in the vaults for Decades? Impressive! What a treat that she took it out for the State Visit! German Jewel - German Visit

PS: since when is she wearing ear helpers?

Isn't that standard for massive earhangers? Such a hook around the earlobe?

Hi Duc,
in this case I have the impression this is not a hook around the earlobe, it is inside the ear, so it may be a hearing aid (i.e. an acoustic hearing apparatus)???

It is hard to tell. On this picture it also looks like Crown Princess Victoria is wearing a hearing aid, but it is a hook for her earhangers: picture.

Indeed I often wonder how the royal ladies can so unconsciously wear such heavy and valuable ear jewelry; clearly such hooks serve the purpose well of keeping the things on!

I wonder what it would look like if it was worn as a tiara?

Swedish press has written that queen Silvia has had a hearing aid for some years. This photo is from Nobel 2015.

This tiara is one of my all time favorites! The stones are exquisite. It's regal, majestic, and absolutely unforgettable. Truly an amazing tiara.
