Our tour of Monday's Nobel tiaras wraps up with a surprise attendee: Princess Christina! The palace doesn't mention her in its official press releases, and she's recently retired from most public appearances, so it was very exciting to see her at the festivities.

Christina wore a tiara that has been one of her favorites in recent years: the Diamond Six-Button Tiara. (Learn about its interesting history here!)

She paired it with a suite of gold and pearl jewels with gemstone pendants. The color and cut of the stones mean that the pendants are nearly translucent, giving them an especially luminous effect. The set has been in her jewelry box for at least a decade.

She also wore the sash and star of the Order of the Seraphim and her brother's Royal Family Order.
