Title: Danish royal jewels
Post by: Luc 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 !

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!

They used to be worn by the Queen Mother of Denmark, Ingrid.  ;)

Title: Re: Danish royal jewels
Post by: Carolath Habsburg on December 20, 2010, 05:55:06 PM
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.

Re Postings 15 and 17:  IMO, I feel that the large emerald-cut central stone in the center of the choker is most likely an aquamarine, not a diamond.  Regards,  AP.

Post by: Carolath Habsburg on December 20, 2010, 07:30:46 PM
is strange cause it seems to have two colors in the second image and it looks like diamond in the first one. I like that kind of jewelry.
Title: Re: Danish royal jewels
Post by: Eric_Lowe on December 21, 2010, 08:09:30 AM
I think it looked like an aquamarine choker, a diamond that big will be very overpowering. I like it as it is my favourite stone.

Post by: MademoiselleAndrea on December 21, 2010, 11:05:29 AM
Aquamarine is my birthstone!  :D

Post by: Eric_Lowe on December 21, 2010, 11:14:40 AM
Nice ! Most arquamarines are light blue in color and sometimes not easy to see (unlike the darker shade of blue in blue topaz).

The first episode of a program about the DRF's jewels has just aired here in Denmark and it was really good. Queen Ingrid's ruby tiara + set (which she passed on to Frederik who gave it to Mary) got a lot of great coverage and Queen Margrethe told that she 'loved seeing it' on the Crown Princess.
Next sunday at 8:00 pm, next episode will be sent and it'll feature the Romanov jewels as well as Princess Olga Romanoff (granddaughter of Grand Duchess Xenia and Grand Duke Alexander) will  appear alongside Prince Michael of Greece and Prince Michael of Kent to tell about the wonderful Russian jewels.

If anyone's interested, this (http://www.dr.dk/nu/live) will air next episode. Of course they're all speaking English, the narrator though, is speaking Danish.

I enjoyed watching it very much....fascinating to say the least.

Here (http://www.dr.dk/nu/player/#/de-kongelige-juveler/25926)'s the link to the second and last part of the Danish documentary 'The Royal Jewels'. It mainly puts focus on the Romanov jewels and what happened to them.

Indeed. More should have been made about other royal houses.

Royal Jewelry is the subject I always have a fascination. Glad I got a book on the Danish jewels too.

Post by: Archduchess Zelia on January 05, 2012, 12:26:09 PM
Indeed. More should have been made about other royal houses.

I couldn't agree more, Anna von Lowzow - the maker of the documentaries - makes amazing documentaries about royals (mainly about the DRF). These two programs have been a great success though and have been sold to other countries too, so maybe it'll encourage her to do more.

It would be good news to all of us if she decided to do more.  ;)

They will announce it when it does come into the market. I imagine it will...
