From the same source - Crown Princess Victoria:

HRH's pendant at the opening (together with Prince Daniel) of the "Path of Love" at the Royal Zoo, Stockholm - Photo1
At a reception in the Royal Palace - lovely earrings, though they might be fake; imagine they were aquamarines and diamonds, something which Victoria's collection lacks - Photos

27 years old! Time to grow up, or at least make sure people don't take photos!"


Hmm I thought this forum was different to normal celebrity/royal new gossip
site/forms in that we concentrate on the jewelry aspect, and Harry was covering his crown jewels :naughty:

Poor Queen Beatrix every photo we see now no matter how happy she appears on the surface she looks like she's had the stuffing knocked out of her poor lady.

A new portrait of Princess Madeleine was released. She is wearing the Connaught drop earrings which are from the tiara of the same name.

Ahh...but we discussed the matter of how Harry, while nude, retained his watch and necklace. The matter of the jewelry he wore was not neglected in this forum!

Yes but his pendant and watch are hardly in the same league as the normal type of royal jewels we cover, his most important jewels were not on show. If they were I'm sure our discussion would be just as in interesting as our one on tiaras and diamond rivieres.

Here is a HQ of the portrait, courtesy kungahuset.se - Link
Lovely look, though I think the studs are a bit too large for the size of the pendants.

By the way, Crown Princess Margareta, Princess Sibylla and Princess Christina have worn a very similar pair, which may've been made to match the tiara's pendants ;) A pity that they are not in the main line of the family.

Thank you, dear Danny! I too think that post after post here we've formed a sort of friendship :) I just hope that more people would engage in discussions, otherwise I think it's pointless to stay here and just post photos and reply to questions...

ETA - And it think it's been a long time since the last glittering event. I have high expectation for the upcoming State Visits and tours (think of the Cambridges)=

Well, I'm delighted to see you posting here again, too, Danny...but then I "get around" more than Bobby does on Pricescope and I see you on Hangout, too!!! (Although not enough, lately!)

I have to ask you what "FTW" stands for, though.

Bobby, It's lonely at the top. You've come to be sort of our leader. You have a rare aptitude and ability for communication and a mastery of this topic. I really appreciate what you do here. I hope you will stay and I hope more people will contribute. I don't have regular internet access because I only have my phone but I promise I will do everything I can to contribute more after I have regular internet access again.

Best,
Danny

Bobby, I think Danny hit the nail on the head. Over the years, not only did you evolve from someone who was tentative with English into someone who had complete mastery over the language, but you evolved from someone with an interest in royal jewelry into a true expert on it, someone who seems able to answer any question on it.

Having you here as a source is great for the rest of us, but you actually have no peers among us! I think that it must, indeed, be lonely at the top!

You are a treasure. Thank you for taking this leadership role for so long. And, Danny, thank you for putting it into words on our behalf.

Hugs,
Deb

Please tell me tiaras are involved! :lol:

To echo other's posts, You keep this thread alive Bobby. I always look forword to reading your posts and looking at the older photos that you dig up. Your opinion and knowledge is invaluable to us.

Thanks you for the kind words, Danny, Deb and sunshine!!!
Over the years I have come to love this thread and I do wish it will stay 'alive' as much as possible. Two of the things I like most about (apart from the discussions) it is the opportunity to practice my English and the mild tone (especially in the past couple of years) of our posts. Also, some of you seem like interesting people and I think it's a pity that we can not meet in person.
On another note, I do miss some of our former posters, like Josefine and alexander1917. They too were knowledgeable and had good photos to share here.

They surely are! We are bound to see at least one tiara during the President of Turkey's State Visit to Sweden next Monday, and if we're lucky, The Duchess of Cambridge might please us with a tiara in Malaysia (also next week), possibly a few other nice jewels.

That is great! I don't like it when State Dinners are "Black Tie", i.e. no tiaras. If the Duchess of Cambridge is going to wear a tiara, do you guys think she will wear the Cartier Halo Scroll, or a different tiara? But if the dress code is "Black Tie" do you think the Queen will loan some other jewellry? :confused: I know she lent her the Maple Leaf Brooch on their last tour and may have loaned her those diamond chandelier earrings for the BAFTA event, although there was no conformation from the palace.

Bobby, even though I don't have much to say, this is one of my favorite threads and a lot of it's because of you.
I love looking at the photos you post.
Don't think for a minute nobody's paying attention; we're all speechless from the jewels! :D

I want to thank all of the wonderful posts that everyone has made to this forum. I am one of your lurkers. I have just spent a nice 4 hours going through posts, pictures, links... Drooling the whole time. Unfortunately I have not had a computer for over 2 months. The old computer died a horrible death and I lost this link. So happy I found it again. Please keep up the wonderful posts, pictures and royal watching. I cannot understand how you do it. Thanks You so much!

While I can't check in as frequently now that school has started, I'm still logging on when I can. I echo the sentiments of the Prince's contributions...we wouldn't be here without you Bobby!

I also appreciate everyone's attitude on this site. Some other sites can get very mean and nasty with their comments, but that hasn't been much of an issue on this one, which is why it's one of only two royal watching sites that I look at (the other being the Order of Splendor).

Thank you EVERYONE!! :bigsmile:

Are we going to speculate on which tiara the future Hereditary Grand Duchess Luxembourg is going to wear on her wedding day?* I saw that you guys kind of did with the Duchess of Cambridge, so I was just wondering when we were going to start talking about her different options.



The Countess de Lannoy's mother passed away unexpectedly in August. How sad for the future Grand Duchess...no tiara can make up for not having your mother at your wedding. :blackeye:

I hope there's a tiara event soon! This has been a long, dry summer!

If the Duchess of Cambridge is going to wear a tiara, do you guys think she will wear the Cartier Halo Scroll, or a different tiara?


I think she will stick with the Scroll tiara for all of her tiara events in the foreseeable future. Remember, her wedding earrings were designed to match the motif's of the Scroll tiara. What is the point in having matching earrings if you never plan to wear the tiara again?

Of course, it's been over a year since the Duchess of Cambridge wore any tiara, so one might argue what is the point of having a tiara if you never wear it?

Did I mention I hope there's a tiara event soon because I'm going through withdrawl? ;)

It has been a long jewel lacking Summer :-( Perhaps normal - we only glimpse jewels if there is a Summer Wedding. Let us hope that the tour by Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will give us some things to look at!

I think the Halo tiara is a safe bet ;) I don't think we'll see the Duchess with a second tiara in the next couple of years, unless she (with the Duke) starts attending white tie galas, state dinners, etc. more often. Until then there is simply no need for Catherine to have more than one tiara.
If the events is black tie without tiaras, then I think HRH will opt for jewels from her own collection (like the modern ruby set, possibly some of Diana's jewels). I don't see any reason why she might have to borrow some from her grandmother-in-law, HM The Queen. Remember that The Countess of Wessex, who is the main female Windsor at foreign royal events and reportedly HM's fav daugther-in-law, made do with only one tiara and a couple modest necklaces/earrings for the first 5 years of her marriage.
BTW, black tie does not necessarily mean no tiaras. I can think of a dozen of 'private' parties in the Scandinavian royal courts, along with The Prince & Princess of Wales' official visit to Japan, the CHOGMs and more.

Of course, we don't expect to see the Duchess with a tiara and jewels while doing the shopping and taking Lupo for a walk or visiting the Olympic village :D You know that the only reason why HRH has not worn a tiara in the past year is because she has not attended an event that requires one. The only opportunity was the banquet during Obama's State Visit, which neither of the couple attended. And I don't think the Cambridges will attend the banquet during President of the Republic of Indonesia's SV in late October.

BTW, you do raise a valid point about the matching design of the wedding earrings and tiara ;) And it's nice to see that we agree about the Halo/Scroll tiara.

PS: the next tiara event is tomorrow - the State Banquet for President & Mrs Gul of Turkey in Stockholms Slott.
