It was a good decision for everyone  IMO.

Silvia got rid of a necklace she didn't like and maybe didn't even wear. And yet it remains a gift from a Queen to her new commoner daughter-in-law  Icecream

Not much money was spent on it being dismantled and it still cost much less than if they have bought a new tiara for the snake.

And Sofia got a present from the royal family.  Lolipop




Excellent points, Elissa  Star

I also can't help but note the irony that it came from Thailand-the same place where the Snake took inappropriate photos as an underaged teen (with the blessing of her disgusting parents). 

Well played, Silvia.   Thumb up

Aha, it makes sense that the origin of the tiara is Thailand. Every time I've seen it pictured, there was something about it that was not European. I couldn't put my finger on it exactly -- maybe the cut of the emeralds? -- but I knew it didn't come from a continental atelier.

To me, it doesn't seem disrespectful to the original giver that the tiara was made from a necklace originally given to the queen. Certainly that's the kind of thing the British royals have done over the years, reshaping and reconfiguring and regifting jewelry.  And in any case, perhaps the necklace wasn't intended as much as a personal gift to the queen as it was a gift to Sweden's royal family, if that makes any sense.

Well, the British royals are also inappropriate if they're re gifting things.  Clearly they know nothing of etiquette and respect. If this was a gift to the royal family as a whole, then it needed to stay in its given form. 

However, it's ugly as can be, so it seems perfect for her.

I just came on here to share in the joy of the Gift of Shade provided by this news. Man, what a play - WHAT a PLAY. Mamma knows best I guess - those jewels leave the family in a divorce its no big loss because they were not being used anyway AND I am guessing it would be part of the payment to her as a divorce settlement. I believe the prenup said something about her keeping all jewels and property acquired before the marriage? Is that right? They really learned from the DRF on this one.

AND it keeps her paws off the family vault because "well, you have your own". And yet the cover story can be that it was welcoming her to the family that QS so graciously reworked some of her own jewels blah blah blah. Amazing - the SRF women are really holding this together to wait out the mistakes of the father and son.

I hope it was a personal gift to Silvia and not to the Royal family. If it was to the royal family/Sweden I don't think it's appropriate to give it as a personal gift to their DIL, as the next owner (Alexander, a sister or a granddaughter of Sofia) will be the last owner who even belongs to the royal family.

I wonder if they gave Daniel and Chris anything as expensive as a diamond tiara at their wedding days. Or perhaps they knew that Daniel and Chris were more interested in the women they married than titles, jewelry and money...

I love this news. The tiara is IMO a perfect representation of Sofia. Something unattractive with links to Thailand is sent to be remade and refined to look more royal and significant and yet still falls short of achieving anything remotely royal or respectable.

Like most others, I'm just glad no money was spent on her tiara (Again like Sofia - cheap) and no significant family jewels were compromised to make/gift it.

New earrings from Ebba Brahe, and quite pricey too! 26.000 SEK (about $2,800!)

$2,800 for those earrings?!  Are you kidding?  Those are the ugliest earrings I have seen in awhile.  'Ol Sof needs fashion help ASAP - maybe Vic's stylist will take her on while she's helping CP.  If I'm going to be forced to look at her while she's "representing Sweden", I'd like it to not be appalling for a change.

The warts are in stiff competition with her chin concerning ugliness

Silvia giving this to Sofia shows she can be quite mean. Not that I don't understand her but I wouldn't want to be on unfriendly terms with her..

If it is true Sofia was giving this horror of tiaras on her weddingday, it is really cruel. Imagine being suprised with a tin foil barbie tiara that you are forced to wear on your wedding day...how do you say no..But on the other hand, Sofia is probably used to get expensive gifts from sugardads that she cant change.
