Nobel Jewel Predictions 2017

Tis the season, everybody: time to register your predictions for the tiaras and jewels that will appear in Stockholm on Sunday for the annual Nobel Prize ceremony and banquet! Here's a refresher on last year's jewels -- and my predictions for 2017!

Queen Silvia wore the glorious Leuchtenberg Sapphires for last year's banquet. (Get a closer look over here!) She generally alternates between the sapphires and Queen Sofia's Tiara for the Nobels, so I expect to see the latter on Sunday. But if I could chose, I'd love to see her wear the classic Cameo Tiara for the Nobels once more.

Last year, Crown Princess Victoria wore a mixture of jewels from the French empire period: the Napoleonic Cut Steel Tiara and pieces from the Cameo Parure. (A more comprehensive rundown is available here!) I wouldn't be surprised if she goes back to her old faithful, the Baden Fringe Tiara, for this year's Nobels, but I'd love to see her take her aunt's Aquamarine Kokoshnik out for a spin.

Princess Madeleine wore a simple jewel look last year, including the Connaught Diamond Tiara and other pearl and diamond pieces. (More on all of the jewels over here!) This year, she will attend the prize ceremony on Sunday and the king's dinner on Monday, but not the banquet on Sunday evening. (She's expecting her third child, and she's making the decision for reasons of physical comfort.) I'm guessing that we'll see her wear her own tiara, the Modern Fringe, this year, but if I could choose, I'd want to see her give the Napoleonic Cut Steel Tiara a go.

We got a great look at the Napoleonic Cut Steel Bandeau last year when Princess Sofia wore it, pairing it with emerald and diamond jewels. (See much more over here!) My guess is that she'll wear the new setting of her wedding tiara again on Sunday, but my wish is to see how she looks in a diamond fringe like the Baden Fringe Tiara.
