Since marrying Prince Nikolaos of Greece and Denmark in the summer of 2010, Tatiana Blatnik has made numerous glamorous appearances at Scandinavian royal family events. Today, we’ve got a closer look at a petite tiara that she wore in Stockholm in June 2015.
Prince Nikolaos and Princess Tatiana were on the guest list for the royal wedding of Prince Carl Philip and Princess Sofia of Sweden in June 2015. No surprise there—Prince Nikolaos and Prince Carl Philip are second cousins, both great-grandsons of King Gustaf VI Adolf of Sweden and his British-born first wife, Princess Margaret of Connaught.
For the wedding, Princess Tatiana wore (per UFO No More) a glamorous lace evening gown by Greek fashion designer Celia Kritharioti. The dress, which had a dramatic off-the-shoulder neckline, was festooned with crystals and beads. She wore the sash and star of the Saints Olga and Sophia with the gown. Originally a decoration presented by the Greek state, the order is now awarded by the head of the former Greek royal family (Tatiana’s father-in-law, King Constantine).
Princess Tatiana often borrows a tiara from her mother-in-law, Queen Anne-Marie, for gala occasions, but for this family wedding, she accessorized with a small diamond fringe tiara from Bulgari. The French royal magazine Point de Vue reported that the vintage tiara was loaned to Tatiana by the jewelry firm for the wedding. A year later, the tiara made another royal wedding appearance, when it was loaned to Franziska Balzer, the bride of Prince Maximilian of Sayn-Wittgenstein-Berleburg. (Maximilian and Nikolaos have mutual cousins: Prince Gustav, Princess Alexandra, and Princess Nathalie of Sayn-Wittgenstein-Berleburg, the three children of Princess Benedikte of Denmark.)
She paired the tiara with dramatic diamond statement earrings. UFO No More identifies the maker of the modern teardrop earrings as Danelian, a Greek jewelry firm.
