Our Sparkling Spotlight on Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden wraps up this week with a look at one more glittering Nobel appearance, this time from December 2017.
For the Nobel Prize ceremony and banquet in Stockholm on December 10, 2017, Crown Princess Victoria was a vision in pale blue. She wore a high-necked pleated gown by Swedish fashion designer Jennifer Blom. The gown was a shade darker than the pale blue sash of the Order of the Seraphim and the ribbon of King Carl XVI Gustaf’s Royal Family Order.
Victoria wore shoes and a clutch bag that coordinated with the color of the dress.
With the blue gown, blue ribbon, blue sash, blue shoes, and blue bag, Victoria of course had to wear some blue jewels! She reached for a classic heirloom tiara from the royal vaults: the Swedish Aquamarine Kokoshnik.
The kokoshnik originally belonged to Princess Margaret of Connaught, Victoria’s great-grandmother. The piece features distinctive diamond lattice designs between its large round aquamarines.
Victoria wore additional diamond pieces from the family vaults with the tiara. She secured the sash of the Order of the Seraphim with the family’s Diamond Lozenge Brooch.
She also wore the gorgeous diamond floral earrings from the family collection. Queen Silvia often wears these earrings with the Braganza Tiara.
She also added the Diamond Zig-Zag Bracelet from the family collection on her right wrist.
I thought we needed one more look at the tiara. (Why not? It’s one of my personal favorites!)
