It says in the exhibition if Margrethes jewels «property of princess Marie» just like it says on the turqoise jewels Mary got for her 50th birthday, property of crown princess Mary.

Whilst I love Marge's subtle shade by not lending Mares any tiaras (I wouldn't lend her a dime after she "upcycled" the Ruby tiara) it does feel a bit weird that the future Queen consort is having to buy her own jewellery. I admire Mary's initiative for buying her own stuff, but does the DRF have a shortage of jewels in the way the Belgian royal family do, or is Marge just stingy?

A little of both. Denmark doesn't have the biggest collection of crown jewels, and what they do have can only be worn by the Queen. So for example, the Pearl poire is part of this collection and can't be loaned. As said above, two of the most significant (and beautiful) tiaras, most significantly the Khedive, were left to A-M and Bene by Queen Ingrid, so left Denmark. And of course, the Alexandrine was given to Alex as a wedding gift. I personally think this should have been returned when they divorced (if I had heirloom jewellery from my ex-husband's family I couldn't keep it).

Outside those, Marge has really only 3 personal tiaras (if you don't count the awful Naasut or Poppies), and two of them are quite small (especially the turquoise bandeau). Marge has also lent tiaras to her nieces at times - maybe she has offered the smaller ones to Mary, and she has declined?

I think they felt, with Mary having the use of the rubies, plus her wedding tiara, that would be enough. The spinel brings her total to 3 (since the midnight is not hers, but can be loaned when requested). I am surprised she went with the spinel, since she already has the rubies - an aqua or sapphire would have been a better option IMO.

It will be interesting to see what happens when Marge dies, if she will leave her personal property to the Danish Royal Property Trust. There really isn't much need for Athena to have a tiara, unless something new is bought for her? Maybe she will inherit the turquoise? Izzy could get the baden palmette, and Josie the spiky wedding tiara.

I am also not of the camp that says Mary "ruined" the ruby tiara. It has been through a number of changes throughout it's life, with every owner putting their personal spin on it. I would like to see what she does with the floral aigrette, if it ends up with her.

I’m not sure why Marie got such a nice tiara ... even as a loan ... and Mary got the cheap 3rd rate dinkie one. Yes the rubies but they were not a wedding thing. I’d be embarrassed to wear that.... and not a good look for the royals to think that was ok ... Alexandra had a beautiful delicate tiara and wife 2 a more substantial one which apparently will be hers permanently....


Mary got a dinky tiara on her wedding day bought at an auction house because she and Fred behaved like idiots up to the wedding, and even afterwards. Because of Daisy's experience with losing a historic piece after Alexandra's divorce and Mary's behaviour, she didn't want to see another family heirloom go.

With Marie, Daisy had a different feeling and therefore deservedly so, bequeathed the Dagmar Floral tiara to her.


Surely if lessons were learned, Mary would have been loaned something more fitting for her status as the wife of the Crown Prince, on the clear understanding that it was not hers and would remain in the family? As far as I understand it, everyone adored Alexandra at the beginning, and look how that turned out, so regardless of attitudes to Mary and Marie as people, a new “regime”, for want of a better expression, of bestowing tiaras should have been introduced, regardless of the personalities involved.


Bolded: that's right, that's exactly what happened > The Ruby Parure. The parure doesn't belong to Yrma, but to Fred. Queen Ingrid bestowed the whole parure to Fred to be used by his wife, the crown princess. Princess Ingrid of Sweden received the parure from Queen Alexandrine as a wedding gift when she married Crown Prince Frederik of Denmark, making her a crown princess. Following that tradition, Yrma should give it to Christin upon his marriage, so his wife (the future crown princess) can use it.

I very much hope you are wrong, whatever is left to anyone but Mary and Fred will eventually leave the family, thanks to the last exhibition we now know the aigrette is now in the foundation so that means each queen will have at least 3 tiaras for her own use. Leaving jewels to minor jewels is never a right path, think what happened with most of the jewels Queen Mary left the Kents, Marina sold much to make ends meet or replace diamonds for paste, and then his son was forced to do as much and long gone are the sapphires. What Marge did with both the Alexandrine tiara and the floral Dagmar tiara weren't the wisest choice but in the end... they are hers and she can choose to do what she wants with them, lending them for life would have been better especially since Marie has very little tiara events to attend, especially outside Denmark and they are not rich enough to buy them up again vs what they might get if they sold them in an auction.

I like the rubies before but Mary made sure they suited her not the other way around, and every change could be undone should the need arise. Smiley

Alexandra had a beautiful delicate tiara and wife 2 a more substantial one which apparently will be hers permanently....
When Mary married Fred, Jokke and Alex were almost on the path to a divorce, many saw it back then as Marge having learnt her lesson but alas... it was not to be for she did it again with Marie and the floral one.

There has been confirmation through the recent jewels exhibition in Copenhagen that Marie has been gifted the Dagmar floral tiara. Athena will probably wear it one day.

And I'm not expecting Mary to share many items with Marie or even Izzie and Josie once she gets her claws on the royal jewels.  Snare


I'm the opposite, most of her purchases are being done not only to cover most gaps, and provide for a better jewerly options to events, for as we know her wedding tiara is not that flexible after the pearls were added, you can only do so much with the rubies, and as for her new tiara, is a very cheap one, being old diamonds and all. I think she can lend both Isabella and Josephine the bandeau and her wedding tiara, and they could eventually buy something for each rather than giving away their property that, again, there isn't that much to give especially since Ingrid gave away the stars and pearls, a very sad lost, and the worst of all, the Cartier one. Sad

Is $228 really that expensive for jeans? I thought that was the average price.
