This convertible diamond necklace/tiara was Crown Princess Margareta of Sweden's wedding gift from her new husband's grandmother, Queen Sofia of Sweden. The laurel wreath was inherited by Margareta's third son, Prince Bertil, and worn by his wife, Princess Lilian. When she died in 2013, she bequeathed the tiara to her great-niece, Crown Princess Victoria, who now wears it often.

This gorgeous diamond and aquamarine kokoshnik began in the collection of Crown Princess Margareta of Sweden. Her daughter-in-law, Princess Sibylla, wore the tiara during her wedding festivities, and later it was given to Sibylla's eldest daughter, Princess Margareta. In recent years, the tiara has returned to the Swedish royal vaults, and it's been worn by Crown Princess Victoria, Princess Madeleine, and Princess Christina.

A glittering necklace is up next, and then more tiara voting!
