Queen SilviaA full parure, or matching set, of jewelry accompanies the tiara. Today, that parure is composed of the tiara, earrings, a necklace, a brooch, and two hairpins. The earrings are relatively new to the set; original earrings are thought to have been altered or given away by Queen Victoria, and a new set was created when Queen Louise (as Crown Princess) converted two of the four original hairpins into a set of earrings.
