Reviewing the tiaras worn at the wedding of Crown Princess Victoria and Prince Daniel brought to my attention that we've never really looked closely at Victoria's bridal tiara. Shall we take a temporary break from diamonds and do just that? (Temporary break, loves. I said temporary.)

It's currently in the hands of King Carl Gustaf, but the path down the family line hasn't been a straight one: Josephine left it to her daughter Princess Eugénie, who left it to her nephew Prince Eugén. Eugen loaned it to his niece by marriage, Crown Princess Margaret, and eventually gave it to Princess Sibylla of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha when she married Prince Gustaf Adolf in 1932. Sibylla lent it to her sister-in-law, the future Queen Ingrid of Denmark, for a costume ball and ultimately left it to her son, King Carl Gustaf.

Is this unusual piece a yay or a nay for you?
