Name Day celebrations are a long-standing tradition in Sweden. Victoria's name day is March 12; you can see the Swedish Academy's current Name Day list to find your day over here. Victoria's celebrations took place at the Royal Palace in Stockholm.

For the occasion, Victoria chose royal purple for her ensemble and accessories. These bezel-set amethyst and gold drop earrings provided a little splash of color to coordinate with her blouse.

Victoria's best accessories, though, were two of her biggest fans: her husband, Prince Daniel, and their daughter, Princess Estelle.

Victoria and her amethysts also attended Monday's cabinet meeting, where the name of Princess Madeleine's new baby was officially announced by King Carl XVI Gustaf. The baby is Princess Adrienne Josephine Alice, Duchess of Blekinge. (For those keeping score, baby Adrienne will celebrate her own name day on March 4.)

Victoria, Estelle, and Daniel also joined Princess Adrienne's father, Chris O'Neill, as well as King Carl Gustaf, Queen Silvia, Prince Carl Philip, and Princess Sofia for a Te Deum service in Adrienne's honor.

Here's a look at Queen Silvia's jewels from the service. She chose pieces from her multi-colored pearl collection and a modern brooch that has been a favorite over the past year or so.
