Sparkling Swedish Jewels (And a Tiara Surprise!)

The Bernadottes were out in force on Thursday for two glittering events -- and one of them brought us a majorly surprising tiara moment.

Crown Princess Victoria was in Leipzig for the Swedish Business Prize 2017 Ceremony. She wore a pair of earrings set with blue gemstones and a necklace with a small, glittering pendant stone. The earrings are the same ones she wore to celebrate her fortieth birthday earlier this year.

She also wore a stack of silver bracelets on her left wrist.

Back in Sweden, King Carl XVI Gustaf, Queen Silvia, Prince Daniel, Prince Carl Philip, and Princess Sofia attended a gala dinner. Queen Silvia wore jewels from the family's amethyst parure.

But it was Princess Sofia who gave us a surprise: she debuted a second setting of the Emerald Palmette Tiara that she wore on her wedding day. This new setting is an all-diamond version of the tiara. The piece was also situated differently on her head, worn in a new, more open way. (Read more about the tiara's creation over here.)

Here's a look at the tiara from the 2015 Nobels for comparison. Which setting do you prefer?
