Continuing our look at Crown Princess Victoria and Daniel Westling’s wedding for their tenth anniversary, today we are tackling tiaras!
These are in no particular order, just our faves from the day.
Crown Princess Victoria and the Cameo Tiara
Starting with the star of the day, Vickan and the Cameo. This was the first time a lot of royal watchers got to see the Cameo in action, and Vickan hit it out of the park. Vickan also wore the earrings and bracelet from the Cameo Parure.
Crown Princess Máxima of the Netherlands and the Rosecut Bandeau
We all thought at the time that Max, our magpie princess, would bring out a big gun for Vickan’s wedding. Well, she didn’t, but that didn’t mean she didn’t bring out the carats. Máxima wore the Rosecut Bandeau along with a smattering of other diamonds.
Crown Princess Mary and the Ruby Tiara
Crown Princess Mary wore most of the Ruby Parure, with this being the first event with the remodeled tiara. She switched out the chandelier earrings for the ruby stud and a pearl drop.
Princess Laurentien of the Netherlands and Queen Emma’s Diamond Tiara
Princess Laurentien went for a slightly cyclops-y look with Queen Emma’s Diamond Tiara, replacing the central diamond with a ruby. She accessorized one of OC’s fave tiaras with some magnificent earrings from the Dutch vault.
Princess Letizia, Princess of Asturias and the Spanish Floral Tiara
Princess Letizia dug into the Spanish vaults and pulled out one of LIL’s fave tiaras: The Spanish Floral. She also wore her Wedding Earrings, which were a nice romantic touch.
Princess Christina of Sweden and the 6 Button Tiara
Princess Christina wore the one tiara that she rocks better than anyone else, The 6 Button Tiara. Also worn a magnificent pearl choker and small pearl brooch.
Queen Silvia of Sweden and the Braganca Tiara
As was fitting for the wedding of the heir, Queen Silvia broke out the big gun of the Swedish vaults: The Braganca Tiara. Along with the amazing tiara, she wore the Russian Pink Topaz Demi Parure.
Crown Princess Mette-Marit of Norway and Queen Maud’s Diamond and Pearl Tiara
Crown Princess Mette-Marit wore (for the first time) the smaller version of Maud’s Diamond and Pearl Tiara. While I wish she had worn it a touch more foreward, less headband-y, a tiara debut is always something we enjoy. She also wore another of Maud’s jewels, the brooch that was gifted to Maud from the Drapers’ Company on her wedding.
Princess Benedikte of Denmark and the Sayn-Wittgenstein-Berleburg Fringe Tiara
Princess Benedikte broke out her big gun, the Sayn-Wittgenstein-Berleburg Fringe Tiara (you know I had to get one fringe in here). Bene wore the SWB Fringe with the Diamond Fan Earrings and her portion of Queen Alexandrine’s Sautoir Necklace (both inherited from Queen Ingrid, who was originally a Swedish Princess – nice throwback Bene).
Hereditary Princess Kelly of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha and the Saxe-Coburg and Gotha Turquoise Tiara
Hereditary Princess Kelly wore a tiara that is a bit divisive here: some love it, some think it should be in the dress-up box: The Saxe-Coburg and Gotha Turqouise Tiara. Part of a parure that it is thought was gifted to Princess Victoria Adelheid of Schleswig-Holstein upon her marriage to Duke Carl Eduard of SCG.
