10. Princess Eugenie of York showed support for a former royal-adjacent -- Chelsy Davy, former girlfriend of Prince Harry -- at the launch of her new line of jewelry on Tuesday. I believe that Eugenie's gold balance earrings are a part of the new line.

9. The Duchess of Cornwall wrapped up her 2016 Royal Ascot with her usual daytime jewelry uniform: diamond and pearl earrings and multi-stranded pearl necklace with diamond clasp. She also added the diamond moth brooch from her collection of insect-themed jewels. (More on Ascot Day 5 here!)

8. King Harald V and Queen Sonja of Norway are celebrating their silver jubilee this week (specifically, the 25th anniversary of the coronation-esque blessing they received in Trondheim after Harald ascended to the throne). Their daughter, Princess Märtha Louise, wore a bejeweled pair of statement hoop earrings at the Ravnakloa fish market during the royal family's silver jubilee tour on Thursday.

2. The Duchess of Cambridge wore three pieces of heirloom royal jewelry -- the Queen's diamond chandelier earrings, Queen Mary's choker bracelet, and her sapphire engagement ring -- at an EACH gala in Norfolk on Wednesday. (More on these jewels, including close-ups, here!)



1. And finally -- it's tiara time! My collective top vote this week goes to the National Day tiaras worn in Luxembourg by the ladies of the grand ducal family. Grand Duchess Maria Teresa wore the Belgian Scroll Tiara, Hereditary Grand Duchess Stephanie wore her diamond butterfly tiara, Princess Claire wore the Grand Duchess Adelaide Tiara, Princess Alexandra wore the Chaumet Choker Tiara, and Princess Tessy wore the Diamond Vine Leaves Tiara.
