Today, our survey of Swedish royal wedding jewels arrives in 2013, when Princess Madeleine married Chris O'Neill in Stockholm. Here's a look at her gorgeous wedding jewels, glittering in motion!





The historic Vasa Earrings moved freely as Madeleine and Chris whispered during the ceremony. Read more about the history of the earrings over here!




Although her mother and sister had chosen to wear the family's Cameo Tiara as a bridal diadem, Princess Madeleine wore her own diamond fringe tiara, a gift from her parents, on her wedding day.




The crown of Princess Sofia Albertina, sister of King Gustaf III, was displayed in the chapel during the wedding. The crown was made in Stockholm in 1771.




Chris leaned over to whisper in his bride's ear near the end of the ceremony. This view gives you an idea of the large number of royals who attended the wedding.




You get a hint of the diamond bracelet worn by Madeleine as she and Chris exited the church; the large bracelet is a part of the family jewel foundation, and it features a zig-zag pattern.




The couple paused slightly as they exited the chapel after their wedding, giving us a good view of Madeleine's gown, which was made by Valentino.




The couple kissed in front of an enthusiastic crowd gathered outside the palace.




Chris got a new piece of royal "jewelry" during his wedding celebrations, too: he's wearing the Order of the Polar Star around his neck.
