|Mary's Diamond, Ruby, and Spinel Necklace Tiara (in necklace format)|
The auction pages (ring shown was sold separately)
Bruun RasmussenAccording to a report in Billed-Bladet, Crown Princess Mary bought this set from auction for herself. It was not seen publicly, however, until April 2015, when Mary wore it as a necklace to a performance in honor of Queen Margrethe’s 75th birthday.
At a performance for Queen Margrethe's 75th birthdayThe Crown Princess had a frame made for the necklace, so that it could once again be used as a tiara. The tiara was debuted at a gala for art and culture in March 2016, and was worn again during the April state visit from Mexico (which was last night!). It sits high on her head, the base of the frame covered to match her hair color so that it becomes invisible.
