Newspaper illustration of the wedding between Princess Victoria of Baden and Crown Prince Gustav of Sweden in Karlsruhe in 1881       
http://www.pinterest.com/pin/645351821601595011

I wonder who the woman standing in the centre is? It looks like she is wearing the aquamarine kokoshnik, but I am unsure when that tiara was created, nor if the woman in question would have acces to it.
   
The Aquamarine Kokosnik came from the collection of Princess Margaret of Connaught, who married the future King Gustaf VI Adolf.

Thank you! So sadly not the tiara in this picture, but I'm sure it still dazzled!!

Also, a  Star to you CS for your impeccable posts  Hug
       
Did the Swedish Royal Family have a Kokosnik style tiara before 1881?

I'm really not sure, to be honest the woman in the picture may be from the bride's family as she's stood to the left of the bride. It was just the centre jewel that reminded me of the aquamarine  Smiley

For some reason I thought the aquamarine kokoshnik (now with Princess Margrethe) was a wedding present to Sybilla from "uncle" Ferdinand, former tsar of Bulgaria.

Ulrika Eleonora was Queen Regnant of Sweden from 1718 to 1720. She ennobled 181 people during her reign to secure support for her rule. She had wished for her husband, Prince Frederick of Hesse to be made co-monarch. This was opposed by the Riksdag.

Magnus III was King of Sweden from 1275 to 1290. In 1278 he regained the provinces in Gothenland in the southern part of the kingdom. Magnus assumed the additional title rex Gothorum, King of the Goths. This began the tradition of "King of the Swedes and the Goths".
