The Queen of Denmark wore sentimental earrings from her collection for a museum opening in Oksboel this weekend.
On Saturday, Queen Margrethe II of Denmark was on hand for the official opening of FLUGT, a new museum that gives insight into the experiences of refugees in the nation.
Queen Margrethe joined museum director Claus Kjeld Jensen for a tour of the new museum space during her visit.
She also participated in a ribbon cutting ceremony as part of the official opening of the museum.
For the occasion, Queen Margrethe wore earrings from her extensive collection of daisy-themed jewelry. Her nickname is “Daisy,” a play on the origins of her first name. (In French, the word marguerite is also the name of the ox-eye daisy.)
This particular pair of earrings is made up of a cluster of tiny enamel daisies. These were made by the Danish company Georg Jensen, part of their extensive line of daisy jewels. They were inspired to make the jewelry line as a tribute to Margrethe, so it just makes sense that she owns several pieces from the range.
For Saturday’s museum opening, she paired the earrings with a gold floral brooch.
Margrethe’s jewelry box is filled with daisy pieces. Along with the cluster earrings, she also owns additional Jensen daisies, including these floral earrings and their coordinating brooch. She wears the jewels here in June 2014 at her French summer home, the Chateau de Cayx.
She owns a larger pair of enamel daisy earrings from Georg Jensen, too. She wears them here at the Chateau de Cayx in August 2006.
And, of course, Margrethe also owns important pieces of daisy jewelry set in diamonds. During her Golden Jubilee celebrations in January 2022, she wore her Diamond Daisy Brooch, a gift from her mother made with diamond that belonged to her grandmother, and diamond daisy earrings, plus the Ruby Horseshoe Brooch.
