Yes it is another topic about that  tehe

The Cameo Parure

Quote
A parure of antique cameos and pearls set in red gold, it consists of a tiara, earrings, necklace and brooch. Said to have been owned by the Empress Josephine, the parure was inherited by her granddaughter and namesake, Duchess Josephine of Leuchtenberg, who brought it to Sweden when she married the future King Oscar I. Eventually the set went to her daughter, Princess Eugenie, who later gave it to her nephew, Prince Eugen. The prince in turn gave the parure to Prince Gustaf Adolph Jr.'s bride, Princess Sibylla of Saxe-Coburg Gotha, as a wedding gift. Three of her daughters wore the tiara at their weddings, as well as Queen Silvia. Not really a part of the foundation.

It's the one that Victoria used in her wedding day. It's the tradition that swedish princesses use this tiara for their wedding. Silvia also used this one.

Princess Desiree and Princess Birgitta

The tiara is a part of a parure here you can see the necklace and earrings.

Leuchtenberg Sapphire Parure

Quote
A diamond and sapphire parure in a neo-classical style consisting of a tiara, pendant earrings, necklace, brooch and a pair of hair sticks. The set had been a wedding gift from the French emperor Napoleon Bonaparte to his adopted son Eugene de Beauharnais and his wife, Princess Augusta Amalia of Bavaria. The Duke and Duchess of Leuchtenberg,as the couple were known after their marriage, in turn gave the parure to their daughter Josephine when she married the future King Oscar I of Sweden in 1823.

The tiara has nine square-cut sapphire and diamond clusters set on a base of honeysuckles and leaves, while the necklace had nine pendant clusters. Originally the tiara's sapphires were worn interchangeably with nine pear pearls.

The parure - Tiara's seid - Tiara's back

Quote
A diamond tiara in a distinctive neo-classical design, it had been made in Berlin for King Oscar II's wife, Queen Sophie, nee Princess of Nassau. Nine graduated prongs are topped with five-pointed star-like clusters of collet diamonds, encompassing classical motifs common to the Victorian Age.

Braganca Diamond Tiara

Quote
A large diamond tiara set in silver and mounted in gold,its design seems to precede the neo-classical style of the first French empire with the cut of the diamonds
and the cumbersome overall look that was surely designedto impress rather than be comfortable to wear. The tiara had belonged to the Empress Amalie of Brazil, whose sole-
surviving sister was Queen Josephine of Sweden. After her death, it was inherited by Queen Josephine and thus brought into the possession of the Swedish royal family.

Amethyst Demiparure

Quote
A suite of amethyst dating back to the time of the first French empire, made up of a necklace, pendant earrings, two bracelets, brooch and corsage ornament. Most likely the set had been a wedding gift from Napoleon himself, or his first wife Josephine, to Princess Augusta Amalia of Bavaria when she got married to Eugene de Beauharnais, Duke of Leuchtenberg. The couple in turn gave the suite to their daughter, Josephine, when she married Crown Prince Oscar of Sweden. There the set stayed and was later made a part of the Bernadotte Family Foundation. Various royal ladies have worn pieces from the suite, but it was Queen Silvia who converted the necklace into a tiara, while the two bracelets could be united with the corsage to form a necklace.

Napoleonic Cut-Steel Tiara

Quote
A tiara of highly polished cut-steel set with gold in the designs of oak leaves, acorns, flowers and feathers. Queen Josephine may have brought it to Sweden, where it languished for many years until rediscovered by Queen Silvia. For a period of time cut-steel was a cheap alternative for women who wished to be stylish but could not afford the real thing during the time of the first French empire on to the Victorian era.

This tiara was found by Silvia a short time after her marriage in a cupboard. Imagine opening a drawer and finding a tiara  Spooky-bat

The Cameo tiara looked on the sisters so much better. Especially on Birgitta.

I love the cameo but as a beautiful historical piece it doesn't usually look right when a member of the SRF wears it. I didn't like how it looked on Silvia in her wedding and I didn't like it when Victoria used it either.

Intågssmycket (Arrival necklace)

Quote
It was originally given by the later King Gustaf V to his bride Viktoria of Baden when she arrived for the first time in Sweden before their wedding in the year 1881.
Princess Madeleine is wearing what is known as the processional jewels (intågssmycket). The piece was given to the newly named Swedish Crown Princess Victoria for her procession into Stockholm following her wedding in Karlsruhe in 1881. Victoria was given the necklace by her husband, Crown Prince Gustaf (V). The necklace is made of Ceylon sapphires, baroque pearls and diamonds.

The swedish have a great collection of jewels, on some ways it's better than the BRF's.

The anniversary tiara

It's supposed to be a present of CG to Silvia for their ten wedding anniversary but it's known for sure.

Pink Topaz Suite

Quote
Some of the most memorable jewels in the Bernadotte Family Foundation are part of a suite of diamonds and pink topaz ina millegrain setting, originally consisting of a necklace,
a cluster brooch and a large devant de corsage. Popular in the early 19th century with Europeans and Americans of rankand status, this set was originally given as a wedding giftby the Russian Czar Paul I to his daughter Maria, who married Grand Duke Friedrich of Saxe-Weimar Eisenach in 1804.

Their daughter Augusta, wife of Kaiser Wilhelm I of Germany,received the suite and later gave them to her daughter Luise,who married Grand Duke Friedrich of Baden. It eventually wentto their daughter Victoria, who was married to Prince Gusta of Sweden in 1881 and was then made a part of the Bernadotte Family Foundation. Queen Louise Mountbatten in turn converted two of the corsage pendants into earrings.
