with and without the pendants (though I think they look a bit, well, empty as plain frames). Princess Madeleine has given these earrings their greatest showcase in recent years, wearing them for events such as Crown Princess Victoria's pre-wedding dinner, Prince Carl Philip's wedding, and at her own wedding. They must be heavy to wear and they aren't favorites of Queen Silvia or Crown Princess Victoria, so I always cheer a bit to see Madeleine take them out for a spin. They're big and delicate all at once, and their history deserves to be shown off.
