Just found that




 

Epaulettes earrings
First seen on Victoria on the occasion of the dinner of her wedding in 2010. Originally they were the epaulettes of the gala uniform worn by The kings of Sweden. Princess Madeleine wore them on the 70th birthday of her father, King Carl XVI Gustav, in Stockholm.

The tiara is made of  chiseled and polished steel, as well as golden brass. It is fashioned after the after the very popular style of the First French Empire. It was rare and expensive to create as industrial production had not made steel a widespread material.
 
Originally it was made for Queen Hortense of Holland (both daughter-in-law and sister-in-law of the Emperor Napoleon) with a necklace and matching earrings. In 1823 the diadem was gifted to her niece Josephne, when it married Crown Prince Oscar of Sweden, future king Oscar 1st. It remained 'hidded' until Silvia discovered it in a cupboard at the end of 1970.

Victoria of Baden (future queen Victoria of Sweden) is wearing a bow brooch at the waist.




Sofia secured the sash of the Royal Order of the Seraphim with that same brooch.

These are great, Peeds!  Star

I had no idea that button tiara was part of a parure.  I am not a fan of that tiara, but those epaulette earrings are gorgeous.

It looks like diamonds in that picture, but I think that choker, as well as the earrings, are part of the same set as the cut steel tiara.

Interesting, I didn't pay attention to that. Hmmmm, we have to check that. It looks like strand of diamonds with a buckle in the front

In comparison, it's different than the one Madeleine wears:

This post from the Court Jeweller references a choker and earrings in the cut steel parure, but I am still looking to see if there are any good pics of them.

You might be right Lurker, here is another photo of that choker






Edit: TAAADAAAAAAAAAA


The tiara actually has matching earrings and a choker, making it the Steel Cut Demi-Parure technically. The earrings and choker are rarely seen. The left photo is from over 20 years ago, Silvia wore it during a state visit to Iceland. (The right photo is much more recent.)

BTW, this is Hortense de Beauharnais (stepdaughter of Napoleon I, married Louis Bonaparte, Queen of Holland)











Eugene de Beauharnais was the son of Josephine ,wife of Napoleon (Napoleon's step son). He was a general in Naploeons army and Napoleon gave him the territory of Naples (Eugene was the first viceroy of Italy). Napoleon was forced to divorce Josephine because she could bear no more children - ironically, Napoleon's future heirs all died, and Eugene's bloodline went on to populate the royal houses of Europe.

I have to say I see why it's not worn very often.  I could see the earrings looking nice if deployed correctly, but the choker isn't one that meshes well with modern styles IMO and especially not on the younger royals.

This sapphire parure is now exposed at the Louvres museum. It passed from Hortense to Queen Marie-Amelie in the Orleans family. The late Count Henri of Paris sold it to the Louvre in 1965.
