"Princess Isabella and Prince Christian keep everyone entertained at the Concert Hall"

Is Crown Prince Frederik wearing a new suit? We don't usually see him in double fronted suits.

;) I have to laugh at myself for noticing that.

Prince Christian looks so suave in 'black tie'.

Thanks everyone for the links and photos. What an amazing night! :)

I loved seeing Christian and Isabella dressed up to go out with their parents. I love Mary's dress and I love the Queen in navy blue.

Ayvee, we need some help.

According to my Danish dictionary the word for diamond is "diamant". The word "brilliant" refers to the cut of the stone. The two words are often used together to confusing effect.

I'm guessing here, but "brillanter" refers to any cut stone, multi-faceted and sparkley.

Mr google found this:

"What is the difference between a diamond and a brilliant?

A diamond is a stone; a brilliant is the name of a cut. A brilliant is cut in 57 facets.

Brilliant is often confused with diamond, but the two are not synonyms. Brilliant is only the cut of the diamond in 57 facets. It is actually short for brilliant-cut and stands for the way of cutting that contributes to the view and reflection of light of the diamond."

ayvee [:} : Does it mean that the stones in this necklace are diamonds but are called brilliants because they are cut a certain way?

I'm not sure what the translations are, but Princess Mary's necklace has diamonds and tiny rubies or garnets in it. The necklace is typical of Victorian era - a central panel with symmetry on either side of the central panel.

I read the BB digital issue this week. I would like to know how they know that it's a tiara that Princess Mary wore as a necklace. Are they speculating or did someone in Princess Mary's staff tell BB this? I do agree that it looks like it can be worn as a tiara.

So here's my own speculation about this piece of jewelry - This is definitely an antique necklace, probably purchased either at an auction (Bruuns-Rasmussen in Denmark) or jewelry stores that sell antique jewelry (SJ Phillips, Bentley Skinner, Bonhams).

She has two daughters that will need a tiara in the future and a tiara for Prince Vincent's wife too. All in all, she will need threeother tiaras to pass on to. Prince Christian's wife will be getting the ruby parure if Mary follows the tradition of passing it on to the next Crown Princess.

I hope she wears this as a tiara for the Swedish wedding in June.

I know practically nothing about jewellery. How can you tell it's an antique necklace and not a new necklace that has been made to look old?

Is that even done?

Whatever it is, it's very beautiful and I really hope Mary own's it. I would really like to see it as a tiara. If it's indeed possible to wear like a tiara. You can be 100% certain with BB.

From HQ photos, you can see how the stones are set in Princess Mary's necklace. None of the big name jewelers - Harry Winston, Chopard, Bulgaria, Tiffany and other famous ones - set diamonds like this anymore. Also, there is a patina on the metal of her necklace consistent with silver over gold.

A skilled goldsmith can create a necklace made to look old, but it takes time for the metal oxidation to occur.

This is a good example: http://www.sothebys.com/en/auctions/ecatalogue/2010/important-jewels-n08667/lot.259.html

Close-up of necklace: http://www.sothebys.com/content/dam/stb/lots/N08/N08667/N08667-259-lr-1.jpg

This necklace is gold topped with silver. If you look at close-up, it has a yellowish gold and silver color to the metal. This is similar to the color of Princess Mary's necklace. In some pictures, it looks like it is made up of two different metals, but it is just how the silver has oxidized over time.

Nowadays, most diamonds in necklaces are set like this: http://www.sothebys.com/en/auctions/ecatalogue/2011/magnificent-jewels-n08808/lot.305.html

You can barely see any metal to keep the necklace light.
