After Queen Maud's pearl tiara was stolen in 1995, Gerrard's supplied a replacement copy and also included a smaller frame, which Princess Martha Louise wore in her wedding.
I was under the impression that this was novelty and not possible with the original 1896 tiara.
However, I come across this well-known photo
from Prince Henrik's 60th birthday in 1994, which suggests the original tiara could also be worn without the large central element.
Are there other examples of the tiara worn in the small setting before 1995?
