The royal court of Jordan has made a general move away from large tiaras for gala events—but when Queen Rania attends white-tie functions in other countries, she almost always wears a tiara. Today, we’ve got a closer look at an appearance of her most petite sparkler, a convertible diamond bandeau.
In June 2010, a large number of members of Jordan’s royal family attended the wedding of Crown Princess Victoria and Prince Daniel of Sweden in Stockholm. King Abdullah II and Queen Rania of Jordan were among those present for the occasion. They were joined by their elder daughter, Princess Iman, pictured here with her parents during the celebrations. (That’s the Countess of Wessex, wearing her wedding tiara, standing beside them.)
Here, Queen Rania is pictured arriving for the reception dinner with King Constantine, the former monarch of Greece. She wore a gorgeous column gown in one of her signature colors, deep royal blue, with matching shoes.
She also carried a clutch bag embellished with gemstones. I think I spot a pearl-encrusted butterfly in its design.
For jewels, Rania chose diamonds. She wore a convertible diamond bandeau tiara from her collection. The piece, made by Boucheron, can also be worn as a bracelet. While Rania has often borrowed tiaras from jewelry firms, this one belongs personally to her. She also added a pair of sparkling diamond pendant earrings, plus a diamond bracelet on her right wrist and a diamond ring on her right hand.
She also added two more decorations to the look: the light blue sash of the Order of the Seraphim, Sweden’s highest order of chivalry, and the small ribbon and badge of her highest Jordanian decoration, the Order of Al-Hussein bin Ali.
