Queen Margrethe II of Denmark is the granddaughter of King Gustaf VI Adolf and Crown Princess Margareta of Sweden, and her collection includes numerous jewels with Swedish royal provenance. Appropriately, she chose Crown Princess Margareta's turquoises for this gala. (Crown Princess Victoria is Crown Princess Margareta's great-granddaughter.) The earrings, brooch, and pendant Margrethe wore for the gala were all Crown Princess Margareta's wedding presents.

Margrethe suspended the diamond and turquoise pendant from a grand diamond riviere from the Danish royal collection.

The slim gold bracelets are worn by all female descendants of Queen Ingrid of Denmark. Crown Princess Margareta of Sweden wore one, too. (More here!)
