It could well be that her family, upon hearing of the promise, ended up saving and accumulating these things over many years and she now wears them in public. I mean, Jetsun, soon to be Queen of Bhutan, was groomed and raised accordingly.

I don't like how once she gets married she gets a birkin in a matter of days the fact that she comes from a non western poor country makes the brand whoring even more obnoxious

She's twenty-one, give her time.

I'm not sure how loaded the Bhutanese royals are, but I agree with you since if the nation's GDP is 2000 USD per capita, it's a little controversial to immediately splurge on multiple items that would easily add up to 50~60k USD or so (counting her Chanel suits and brand name high heels), giant engagement ring, watch, Birkin, couture gowns, etc. Sure, she's young, and maybe they didn't want to seem too simply dressed in front of royals of developed countries, but if I were a Bhutanese citizen, I would be thoroughly shocked with her expensive taste.

Kate Middleton's high street shopping earned her accolade for a good reason (again, not that I like her one bit, but she is slightly more restrained with luxury brands when compared to Jetsun).

She may well have expensive taste -- she obviously came from some amount of money -- but I think it's also highly possible the Birkin, etc. could be a gift from the King. He's older, and has traveled more, and probably has some awareness that she might not have already owned sophisticated clothes or accessories on par with the foreign royals she'd be visiting. I doubt she can pick up a clutch worthy of meeting Charles and Camilla in a Bhutan street market. (Also he seems like the sort to love giving her things.) And in that case, she's not likely not to use it.

I believe this is the tiara-headband she wore to the Japanese Inthronization

I know right, sometimes it seems unreal, how beautiful she is. And her beauty radiates from the inside out.

Ethereal is the word that comes to mind.

Blue & Green Jade necklace + earrings




The blue and green jade necklace is probably made up of beads that are carved with the shou symbol, meaning longevity:

I think you are right.

And I love the fact that she wears jewelry within the tradition of her culture, when she is officially representing.

I do, too. It seems very down to earth and humble. She could afford to be dripping in designer jewels but she wears traditional pieces full of symbolism. Very admirable.
