Hi, everybody! I’m easing back in to writing new content again following the birth of our daughter during the first week of January. (We’re all doing great!) I thought I’d start with a sparkling pair of statement earrings that we saw out and about recently in Sweden. Stay tuned—I’ll be covering additional recent events, including the important jewels worn for King Constantine’s funeral in Athens, over the next days and weeks.
On January 16, Prince Daniel, Prince Carl Philip, and Princess Sofia of Sweden headed to the Avicii Arena in Stockholm for the annual Swedish Sports Awards Gala.
All three royals were fantastically turned out for the gala. The princes wore tailored tuxedos, and Princess Sofia coordinated in a black trouser suit with a portrait neckline.
With the suit, Sofia wore a pair of major statement earrings from a brand popular with royals from numerous nations.
The modern chandelier earrings, with their natural branch design and cabochon drops, come from Ole Lynggaard Copenhagen, a family jewelry firm established in Denmark in the 1960s.
Sofia’s earrings are made of gold and diamonds, plus rose quartz, tourmaline, and moonstone cabochons.
The earrings are a popular style with several royal ladies. Crown Princess Mary is an enthusiastic wearer of Lynggaard pieces, including a pair of the modern chandelier earrings with light and dark cabochon drops.
Queen Máxima of the Netherlands also owns a pair of the Ole Lynggaard chandelier earrings. Hers feature cabochon drops in shades of blue and brown.
Here’s another look at Sofia’s chandelier earrings, which feature rosy pink tones in both the gold and the cabochons.
Sofia kept the rest of her jewelry very minimal for the gala, wearing just rings on both hands: her engagement and wedding rings on her left hand, and her stack of cabochon gemstone rings from Bigli Jewels on her right.
