My opinion is that the giant bun ruined the whole look. When Mosh first made her appearance, I didn't even realize she was wearing a tiara, it was overwhelmed by the hair. And the bun did make the veil lay wierd. Didn't her hair dresser do a "hair rehearsal"? Many "commoner" brides I know worked with their hairdressers long before the actual wedding, trying to find a nice look that would accomodate their headgear of choice.

I like Mary's tiara - but it is indeed a bit small.
IIRC - didn't Margrethe + Henrik buy the tiara at an auction?Huh?
I think this is weird. I don't know much about royal jewlery in general, but I assume that all the other CP's got tiaras from within the famliy? Didn't the DRF have a tiara they could give to Mosh?
Mmmmmh, the earrings she wore to the wedding were made especially for her. Maybe to make up for the tiny, auction-bought tiara???  Thinking
 

Perhaps as the wedding day drew closer the Queen had some second thoughts about giving Mary an heirloom Tiara, from a historical point of view it was probably cheaper to buy one at auction to give to Mary ... just in case.  Whereas Queen Igrid's ruby-set belongs to the State and must be given back so Christian's bride may have them

Which Queen has the most impressive collection?   A lot of the tiara pages I used to look at are now gone.  I thought that QEII has the most impressive collection.

I heard that they bought the tiara in auction.

I think that the queen (and prince consort) had learned from what has happened with joachim marriage then they don't want to loose any other family heirloom tiara, but to buy a new "bigger" tiara was not in their list becaused the cost of the wedding itself already very costly (and as I know so far DRF is not one of the richest royal family).
 
If I'm not mistaken Ingrid tiara is a private collection (not belongs to state), the tiara was given to Frederik to be worn by his wife. I am not sure if Mary is allowed to take the tiara with her if the marriage doesn't work (I more think that she is not) Thinking. for the small tiara, it belongs to Mary and she can take it with her if they divorce.

For European queen I would say Queen Elizabeth II (first); Queen Beatrix (second) and Queen Silvia (third) Thinking

Why is the Danish Royal Family not that wealthy? Maybe they could learn from their Dutch cousins and make a good investment, ie Dutch Shell Oil Company.

My understanding is you are correct.  Mary's auction-bought Tiara is hers to take with her.  Queen Ingrid's ruby collection is not and must be passed to Christian's wife.  I also "think" the beautiful pearls that Prince Henrik gifted Mary with is also for her to take, along with the engagement ring and all the other goodies that she has convinced Frederick to purchase for her, including the WalMart Special Bella necklace..  Getting rid of Mary will not come without cost. 
    The Charles & Diana wedding cost about 52milion.
The Netherland Wedding cost the public about 21,600,000.   and the Royal Family 12,400,000.   I haven't a clue in what domination those figures are and how they translate of US$
    And if they shuld get a divorce Mary will take everything her paws can lay claim to.

I am not sure if Mary is allowed to take the tiara with her if the marriage doesn't work (I more think that she is not) Thinking. for the small tiara, it belongs to Mary and she can take it with her if they divorce.

That is my understanding, too. The ruby parure belongs to Frederick and is not part of the state jewels. The teardrop tiara will most likely be given to the bride of Nicolas or Felix by Alexandra. It is odd that Queen Margrethe did not "save" a tiara for the crown princess who Frederick would eventually wed.

There is a pink diamond ring, that I find quite tasteless,it measures up to three carats and cost about $1.8mil. I could bet that Mary had something like that in mind when she pushed for the push present.... Connie

When the Poltimore was sold, I had some awkward moments, when some poster on another board stated, that clues were hinting at a danish buyer....
However, even if I would have cringed every time  I 'd seen it on Mary, at least it wouldn't be lost for the public for the rest of Marys public life...

Yes siree!!  Isn't it a shame that the big auction houses don't reveal the winners of the auctioned items?  I'd love to know who won the Poltimore tiara...and what in the world she's going to do with it.  After all, that's not something you slap on to pick up the kiddies from school.

I remember there being quite the to-do about David and Sarah selling some of Margaret's items.
