ROYAL JEWELLERY || The Danish Queen’s Crown
Today an important piece of the Danish Crown Regalia, this magnificent crown was made in 1731 by court jeweller Frederik Fabritius for the coronation of Queen Sophie Magdalene, King Christian VI of Denmark and Norway’s wife and Queen Consort. Sophie Magdalene refused to wear the already existing queen’s crown as her father-in-law, King Frederik IV, had crowned his morganatic spouse, Anna Sophie Reventlow, with it. She believed that it had been “tainted” from being worn by a mere noblewoman and thus had it melted down and reshaped, and commissioned a new. The crown is made of gold and decorated with table cut diamonds, and is on public display with the rest of the Crown Regalia at Rosenborg Castle.

👌💛 I felt this to be the perfect time to post this picture. Life is literally the most perfect it’s been in a very long time. Everything is falling into place. Loving all of these opportunities God is throwing at me. VERY HAPPY GIRL TODAY.
