Last Saturday, before the Spanish royals headed to Copenhagen for tiaras and diplomacy, the Crown Prince and Crown Princess of Denmark handed out a special set of prizes—and Crown Princess Mary sparkled in diamonds and glitter for the occasion.
Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary traveled to Esbjerg for the presentation of the Kronprinsparrets Priser (the Crown Prince Couple Prizes). The prizes, which honor achievements in the fields of culture and social work, were established by the Bikuben Foundation back in 2004 as one of Frederik and Mary’s wedding presents.
Crown Prince Frederik looked sharp in a three-piece suit for the awards ceremony, while Crown Princess Mary went with a midnight blue color theme. Her glittering velvet dress was made by Rotate Birger Christensen, the same Danish brand that made Queen Letizia’s sparkling return dinner dress from the recent state visit.
Mary echoed the glitter in the dress’s fabric by wearing diamond pieces from her jewelry box.
Her earrings are the Lotus style from Marianne Dulong. These have been in her jewelry box for more than a decade, and they still manage to look both classic and fresh.
She also wore a pair of delicate necklaces. One features a diamond charm in the shape of the letter F (a tribute to Crown Prince Frederik), and the other has a gold and diamond medallion pendant featuring the initials of the couple’s four children.
Mary finished off the look with diamond rings on both hands. Love a little velvet and sparkle this time of year!
Scheduling notes for this weekend: rather than regularly-scheduled morning posts, I’ll be sharing articles about the jewels worn for the Festival of Remembrance and Remembrance Sunday on Saturday/Sunday after they happen. See you then!
