The button tiara's were made at the behest of Bernadotte with the diamond buttons he had worn in less sober days at the great Napoleons court.

Don't blame the Norwegians for the tiara.  It came into the family (I think) when Princess Martha of Sweden married Olav





I would be interested if anyone has a link on this.

Maybe the person who designed our favorite Brazilian aquamarine thing is a descendant of the person who made this one!

The emerald tiara might be better if that large square one in the centre was removed, otherwise I really don't mind that one.  I would sign for it!

Yes...It will look better without the square plank ! That could be removed to make a choker or a bracelet.  ;)

Yes, it came from Sweden with Princess Louise (later Queen Louise of Denmark aka Aunt Swan) to her daughter Ingeborg (who brought it back to Sweden) then to Martha and Sonia. So all the Scandinavian monarchies have been contaminated by it. :)

Yeah, but look at your name 'emeraldeyes'. Would you really turn any emerald away?  ;)

Try this one.  There is a closeup of the Scandanavian emeralds.  Be sure to scroll all the way down.  A lot of the settings makes our "favorites" look good !

The Honeysuckle Tiara reminds me of Sophie's wedding tiara--just like pieces put together.

Oh, you've got me figured out!  I thought I was hiding it so well...But I would definitely turn away Wallis' emerald, ruby and gold bib necklace.  Never cared for it at all.
