  1. I was really hoping Victoria would wear the Estelle parure, but I was happy to see her in the Emeralds too. I really wish there was a matching tiara. Madeleine looked lovely in the amethysts.

  2. Why was the queen overwhelmed with emotion, what brought her to tears? No one else seemed to be so...

  3. I have not seen the name "Estelle parure" before and I know the Swedish royal jewels rather well. Which parure do you mean?
