One of the newest sparklers in the Danish collection, this gold tiara was Greenland's Ruby Jubilee gift to Queen Margrethe II in 2012. The tiara and its coordinating earrings were designed by Nicolai Appel and made from melted-down Greenlandic coins. The name of the tiara, Naasut, translates roughly to "flowers from Greenland." It has become a favorite of Margrethe's in recent years.

Sir Angus Ogilvy commissioned this diamond floral sparkler for his new wife, Princess Alexandra of Kent, in the early 1960s. Collingwood made the tiara using a set of diamond flowers that have interchangeable center stones, allowing the tiara to be worn in pearl, sapphire, or turquoise settings.
