↳ 8. Princess Dagmar’s Diamond Floral Tiara

“This all-diamond floral tiara was given to Princess Dagmar of Denmark. It was then passed down to King Frederik IX, Dagmar’s nephew, despite her already having five children. Frederick gave it to his daughter, Princess Margrethe (now the Queen of Denmark), who loaned it to her daughter-in-law Marie Cavallier.”

The Gloucester diamond+ Turquoise parure

The first owner of this gorgeous parure was Queen Mary of Great Britain as a wedding gift from her parents, the duke and duchess of Teck. As you can see, the tiara was quite different.

Later on, it was modified and gave as a wedding gift to Alice Montagu-Douglas, bride of Prince Henry, duke of Gloucester,

Nowaday, the parure is used by the current duchess of Gloucester, Birgitte.

Danish Tiaras → The Ruby Parure

Jean Baptiste Bernadotte bought a ruby and diamond wreath tiara and accompanying parure for his wife, Désirée Clary, and she wore it on Napoleon Bonaparte’s corotation. This couple would later become King Carl XIV Johan and Queen Desideria of Sweden.

Queen Louise received the tiara as a wedding gift from her grandmother, Queen Josephine of Sweden when she married Frederik VIII because the rubies and diamonds echoed the colors of the Danish flag.

Queen Louise gave the tiara to her son Crown Prince Christian’s bride Alexandrine as a wedding gift, and it was Alexandrine that gave it to Princess Ingrid of Sweden when she married Crown Prince Frederik of Denmark in 1935.

When Queen Ingrid died in 2000 she left the parure to her beloved grandson, Crown Prince Frederik, thereby ensuring that the future Crown Princess would have a truly grand and historical set of jewels to wear.
