I'm pretty sure that Linus' butterfly tiara was a gift from that jeweler she visited a year or two ago on one of their trips abroad (I think it was China).  I remember seeing her at their store, and there was a butterfly necklace or brooch, or earrings (not the tiara itself) on display.  I can't remember the jeweler's name, but they were a Lux company. 

she could just accept something from a company outright?

If I'm right, Queen Mathilde also has one that has been given by one of another Belgian jeweler... I don't think it's shocking Smiley

Alexandra is truly a beautiful young woman. Together except for MT they all share the need to not take positive fashion advice from anyone because they are all bad in their own way. The tiaras are beautiful except for Stephanie's dinky one and what is going on with her does she have scoliosis or some other condition? She is bent at the waist and its not just because she has weight on one leg.

Stephanie's tiara look as though it's made of paper clips.

what I don't understand is that they don't put the "Lannoy Tiara" on a more substantial frame, e.g.




it has a backing with loops for fastening attached, but it does not give it stability.





it's difficult to mount in any hair and to fasten it. A subtle silver/or white gold frame would help it and she could wear it more often as an option

I'm not sure.  I don't know what their rules are.  It could have been a permanent loan to her, a la Mary of DK and the Midnight tiara, or it could have been bought by someone (Guillaume or a courtier) and given to her.  I just recognized those butterflies in another of that company's designs, so I'm assuming that is the company who made it.  The tiara had never been seen on anybody before Linus wore it, so I think it is new.

I think the tiara is by Schroeder.  They visited this jeweler when they went to Japan a few years ago, and again this year in China.  If you look at their designs, you'll see very similar butterflies.  I also suspect that Claire's ruby necklace that she wore to the gala last year comes from this same jeweler.

I have no idea if it's a gift, a purchase, or a permanent loan.  All I know is that Stephanie seems to enjoy spending time on official visits at their stores.

It reminds me of the relationship between the DRF and various jewelry companies. I don't think it's entirely shady, I have to say. Most of the RF's actually seem somewhat reluctant to buy new tiaras especially. Having one on loan seems a mutually beneficial way of solving that problem.

I'm more curious about the RF's not buying more tiaras. Compared to everything else they spend money on, I guess tiaras must be very expensive? Confused

ok the pics from tageblatt look different and I must say, sorry Tessy but this is NOT something you should wear for a gala dinner. MT and Henri must really love her that they let her take part like this. MT's dress looks like something she wore in Scandinavia some years ago (Victorias's wedding? Something in Denmark?). Like the dress Alex wears. MT seems to be wearing the Belgian scroll tiara, Linus her ugly butterfly thing, Tessy one of the flower/vineleave things, Alex this Chaumet Diamond choker thing that also can be worn as a necklace and Claire the Grand duchess Adelaide tiara

Claire just wore that gown on Saturday night to the gala for Alix de Ligne  Thinking  Tessy's dress is awful, and the orange shoes are really hideous.  You can see her bra through the gown, which makes it look even worse.  Linus desperately needs some spanx.  That gown is terrible on her.  It's not a bad design, but it doesn't work for her figure.  It draws attention to her mid-section (and she's not pregnant). 

Alex's gown is gorgeous!  That tiara is not nice on her, but the gown is beautiful. 

I agree with with everything you wrote. Tessie's dress is awful. and yes it's very "labial." Yes
 I wonder if she looked in the mirror and saw her undergarments were showing Crap
