...and her engagement and wedding rings, which Oscar helpfully showed off. The baby has some new jewelry of his own: the insignia of the Order of the Seraphim.

Queen Silvia also wore pearls for her grandson's christening. Her earrings feature pear-shaped pearl drops suspended from diamond studs, and her three-stranded pearl necklace has a diamond and topaz clasp.

Princess Madeleine, Oscar's aunt, is also one of his godparents. She wore the diamond earrings that were originally part of Queen Josefina's Diamond Stomacher. These earrings have been worn by several family members over the years; last June, Princess Sofia wore them on her wedding day.

Here's another look at the earrings, plus a better view of her family order.



Two of the king's sisters, Princess Margaretha and Princess Christina, were also at the christening. Above, you can see Christina wearing pearls. (Behind her, you can also just see Countess Marianne Bernadotte, also wearing pearls, and Dagmar von Arbin, who just celebrated her 100th birthday!)

Two of Oscar's godparents were royal. Crown Princess Mette-Marit, one of his godmothers, wore pearls and diamonds, plus her lovely aquamarine and diamond brooch.

Here you get a slightly better view of Mette-Marit's sparkling headband, which appears to be set with diamond-like and pearl-like stones. You also get a good look at her earrings; this pair has interchangeable drops.

Crown Prince Frederik of Denmark was another royal godparent, so Crown Princess Mary made a glittering appearance at the christening as well. Above, you can see her pearl drop earrings. The pair features champagne-colored pearls suspended from a cluster of sparkling stones.
