Looking for the weekly jewel roundup? It's the summer slow season, so we're taking a week off. The top ten jewels of the past fortnight will be up next Friday!

Margrethe wore the tiara more frequently when she was younger — the delicate tiara, which features scads of teardrop-shaped diamonds suspended en tremblant, is small, and perhaps better suited for a princess than a regal queen. Jensen speculates that this is also the reason that Alexandrine rarely wore the tiara after she became queen and had access to the crown jewel collection.

But even though the tiara is not currently in royal hands, it seems like that we've not seen the last of it at the Danish royal court. Alexandra’s two sons, Nikolai and Felix, are both princes of Denmark, so it seems quite likely that the Diamond Drop will return to their extended branch of the royal family eventually. Perhaps one day we’ll see one of their wives in this sparkling, shivering tiara?
