King Carl XVI Gustaf and Queen Silvia greeted the presidential couple in the courtyard of the Royal Palace. The First Lady wore a lovely floral brooch for the occasion, while Silvia reached for pearls.

Inside the palace, we could see that Silvia also wore the double-stranded pearl necklace that belonged to her late mother-in-law, Princess Sibylla of Sweden.

Crown Princess Victoria kept her jewelry minimal to welcome the presidential couple to the Palace.

Princess Sofia, on the other hand, chose a pair of dark and dramatic statement earrings. They're a little tough to see, as they blend in with the color of her hair.

Here's a closer look at Silvia's jewels. She paired the tiara, earrings, and brooch from the Leuchtenberg Sapphire Parure with a classic diamond riviere. (More on the sapphires here!) She's wearing the pink sash of South Korea's Order of Diplomatic Service Merit, while Madame Kim wears the blue sash of the Order of the Polar Star, which she received during this visit.




The rest of the Bernadottes were also in attendance at the banquet. Crown Princess Victoria wore one of her signature jewels, the Baden Fringe Tiara, with a Jenny Packham gown. (More on the tiara here!)




Princess Madeleine also wore a fringe tiara: the Modern Fringe Tiara, which she now personally owns. (More on that tiara here!) She paired the tiara with diamond floral earrings and a diamond bow brooch from the family vaults.




And Princess Sofia wore a popular version of her diamond palmette tiara, which features an open, halo-like setting and pearl toppers. (More on the tiara here!) She also wore lovely pearl drop earrings from the Bernadotte collection.
