11. Favorite Danish Tiara

The Danish Emerald Parure Tiara

The parure was made by C.M. Weissshaupt in 1840.  It uses 26 emeralds King Christian VI gave to Queen Sophie Magdalene in 1723 and 41 emeralds that belonged to Princess Charlotte of Denmark. Queen Caroline Amalie left the parure to the Danish Crown Jewels which means that it cannot be taken outside of Denmark or be worn by anyone other than the queen.  In 1914, Queen Alexandrine had the Crown Jewels sent to Rosenborg Castle where they can still be viewed by the public.

Day 11: Favorite Danish Tiara

The Danish Ruby Parure Tiara and The Floral Aigrette Tiara

As I’ve already said, I LOVE the Danish Ruby Parure. I’m slightly obsessed with it…but I really like a lot of the Danish tiara’s. So since I’ve talked about my fav already, lets go with my second pick.

There’s something about the Floral Aigrette Tiara that just oozes class and sophistication. I love how it can wrap around the head, but is flexible enough to go with any hairstyle. Then you can use the flat pieces as brooches as well. I can’t wait to see Mary wear this tiara.
