The princesses of Luxembourg’s grand ducal family have a treasure trove of tiaras to choose from for gala events. Today, we’re shining our Sparkling Spotlight on a tiara appearance by Princess Claire from the summer of 2018.
Princess Claire of Luxembourg is the wife of Prince Felix, the second son of Grand Duke Henri and Grand Duchess Maria Teresa of Luxembourg. Felix and Claire were married in 2013, and they have two children, Princess Amalia and Prince Liam.
The couple often appears with the rest of the grand ducal family at gala events. In June 2018, they attended the National Day celebrations in Luxembourg, both dressing to the nines for the annual gala. Princess Claire wore a sleek white evening gown with an off-the-shoulder sweetheart neckline for the gala, plus the insignia of the Order of Adolphe of Nassau.
The blue of the order sash and the white gown coordinated beautifully with the diamond and sapphire jewelry that Claire chose for the event. She wore one of the most classic tiaras from the grand ducal vaults, the Grand Duchess Adelaide Tiara. Made in the 1870s, the petite diamond kokoshnik features a central sapphire flanked by leaf and berry designs. The jewel takes its name from its first wearer, Grand Duchess Adelheid-Marie, the wife of Grand Duke Adolphe of Luxembourg.
On this occasion, Claire let the tiara take center stage. Her only other major jewelry for the gala was a pair of diamond earrings with a chevron-esque design. A wise choice, I think: the simple jewelry styling fit the overall look perfectly.
