Before February flies away, let’s take one more look at a sparkling set of royal jewels set with amethysts. Here’s an excellent appearance from the Norwegian Amethysts, worn by Princess Märtha Louise.
In June 2010, Princess Märtha Louise of Norway and her then-husband, the late Ari Behn, attended the wedding of Crown Princess Victoria and Prince Daniel of Sweden in Stockholm. Märtha Louise wore a bright pink dress with a ballgown skirt for the occasion. She added the insignia of her highest Swedish decoration, the Royal Order of the Polar Star, to the ensemble.
With the gown, Märtha Louise wore the Norwegian royal family’s modern parure of amethyst and diamond jewels. The tiara from the suite, which can also be worn as a necklace, is a little bit difficult to pull off. But Märtha Louise managed it admirably, nestling the jewel in a hairstyle that supported the tiara nicely. You’ll note that the base of the tiara is wrapped in light-colored velvet. That’s because the tiara is more frequently worn by Märtha Louise’s sister-in-law, Crown Princess Mette-Marit, who has icy blonde hair.
With the tiara, Märtha Louise also wore the second necklace from the set with its pendant and the suite’s earrings. She added additional diamond pieces, and she also wore the matching diamond and amethyst ring on her right hand.
