Danish royal jewels
« on: February 03, 2009, 11:04:39 AM »
I think it's a good idea we should start a topic on the jewels of the Danish royal family, they have a fabulous collection.  :) I know little of them and I would be glad to learn more on them !

What is this crown called?

Crown of the Absolutist Kings and the other is the one of their Queens.

You find them all on this site of Rosenborg Slot:

She must have access to larger stoned necklaces for formal occasions!

A really good book on the subject is  "Juvelerne I det Danske kongehus" by Bjarne Steen Jensen. It's in Danish, but it has lot of pictures, and goes into detail about the 3 categories of Danish royal Jewels; the Crown Jewels, the Jewels which are entailed property, and the private jewelry of the royal family.

Quite coincidentally: I just bought this book today and it is absolutely amazing, the pictures as well the text. :) Though I'm Dutch and don't read Danish, I'm trying to read it with the help of a dictionary and it reads quite well...

Oh but this book is a gem!Absolutely.

Mr.Bjarn Steen Jensen is a regular poster at the RJWMB ao.
He had the full and active cooperation of Queen Margrethe II for his research.
Just a marvellous book,a must have.Well done Kmerov and Luc.

Oh my gosh! How gorgeous... I particularly like some of the earrings on the link posted by 'simin', though it was odd to have part of her face cropped, instead of the whole photo.  ???   
I think my favorite piece (keeping in mind that I haven't seen that many pictures of the royal jewels,) is the Ruby Parure. (sp?).
 
They are quite light, lighter than most rubies, and almost lilac in color... I love them!  :D And I just saw pictures for the first time today!

I guess a diamind who changes colors depend of the lighting . Camilla Parker Bowles have one similar, also princess Diana , among other royals ladies .

Here another view of the choker and those earrings, which are similars to the ones who owns Princess Letizia of Spain



Carolina of Monaco have a similar pair but in other colors.
