Nothing super remarkable about Princess Christina's tiara choice for the evening, Queen Sophie's Diamond and Pearl Tiara (well, except that it's a royal heirloom and was a wedding present to Christina, you know. No biggie) ... it's the sparkler she wears on most occasions when a tiara is required. But check out that necklace! I want that in my stocking this Christmas.

One more Tiara Alert from the Swedish/Estonian state banquet -- it's Princess Christina! And I'm happy to say that she's looking really healthy these days; hope her treatments are going well.
I'm less happy about the tiara, just because it's the one she always wears, Queen Sophie’s Diamond and Pearl Tiara, and it's one that just doesn't do her justice, IMO. That hair can handle a substantial tiara -- exhibit A: her appearance in the Six-Button at Victoria's wedding. Wish she'd borrow from the vaults a little more often!

Lovely reader Eliza tracked down a photo of Princess Christina at this year's King's Dinner for us -- thanks, Eliza!
Christina's wearing a dress that probably looks familiar -- it's the same one she wore to Vic 'n Dan's wedding back in June. But, instead of the Diamond Six Button, Christina chose to wear the same tiara (Queen Sophie's Diamond and Pearl Tiara) that she wore to the previous night's Nobel Ceremony again -- the same tiara two nights in a row?!?! Dare I say that I'd almost have preferred to see the Six Button Jeep out and about again instead???

It's Tiara Alert time from the Swedish Nobel festivities, hatters -- and even better, there's nary a button or Jeep in sight!
First up: Carl Gustaf's sister, Princess Christina. It's a little hard to see this piece -- the photographers always give Christina the short end of the proverbial photographic stick -- but I believe she's donning Queen Sophie’s Diamond and Pearl Tiara, a piece she owns personally. Looks nice with her tiara hair!
ETA: Here's a close-up of the tiara...

HRH The Crown Princess of Sweden and Mr. Daniel Westling
June 19, 2010
Well, kids, yesterday we partied hardy in the wedding live posts, and today we get to have a tiara fiesta! I've compiled all of the tiara entries for the royal guests at Crown Princess Victoria's wedding to Daniel Westling (now Prince Daniel) in this entry.
The wedding, of course, took place in Stockholm yesterday. The couple has been together since 2002, when Daniel became Victoria's personal trainer. Love blossomed, and on their wedding day, Daniel became royal. During their balcony appearance, Victoria thanked the people of Sweden for giving her a prince.
And now, we'll all just have to wait to see how long it takes before the pitter-patter of little royal feet are heard in Haga Palace!
Princess Christina looks like a giant next to Crown Prince Naruhito, doesn't she? Hee!
I breathed a big fat sigh of relief when Chris came out in the Diamond Six Button Tiara at the wedding -- I didn't really think Vic would go button with her tiara for her wedding, but this made it official. (And even better -- the beep-beep jeep stayed home! Hooray!)
I do think the six button looks better on Christina than it does on Madeleine or Vic -- her white hair helps the tiara blend in more, rather than sticking out like antenna or headlights. Overall, she just looked great -- happy, youthful, and totally blinged out!
More Nobel fun, more Tiara Alerts! Here's Princess Christina again with her husband, Tord Magnuson, attending the King's Dinner. She's wearing a tiara that she owns personally, which some have called Queen Sophie's Diamond and Pearl Tiara. It was given to Christina in 1974 as a wedding gift by one of her godmothers, Elsa Cedergren. Elsa was the daughter of Count Oscar Bernadotte of Wisborg and, therefore, a granddaughter of Queen Sophie of Sweden.
How about this, hatters: a Tiara Alert and a little-seen royal, all in one post! I love Nobel time!
This is Princess Christina, King Carl Gustaf's big sister, and her husband, Tord Magnuson. Christina is still an active member of the royal family, even though she had to give up the style of HRH when she married her husband, who is a commoner.
Christina is wearing one of the many sparklers from the Swedish vaults: the Napoleonic Cut-Steel Tiara. It's a really unique piece, made of highly-polished cut steel in floral, feather, and leaf designs, set in gold. Here's a close-up photo where the designs are much easier to see. Most sources believe the tiara was brought to Sweden by Queen Josephine, a descendent of Napoleon's first wife, Empress Josephine, when she married into the family in 1844.
I quite like this one -- it's really unusual to see a tiara with no gemstones, but it's so delicate and lovely that I can't help but like it.
