Aquamarines are the birthstone for March, and the blue-tinted stone features in many royal jewel sets across Europe. This month, Royal Central is taking a look at our favourite royal aquamarines.
My all-time favourite is the Swedish royal Aquamarine Kokoshnik Tiara. The tiara has large aquamarines with diamonds dispersed throughout. It has been worn by Princess Margaretha, Princess Christina, Princess Madeleine and Crown Princess Victoria.
Another favourite of mine is the aquamarine ring that belonged to the late Diana, Princess of Wales. It is a large square aquamarine stone that is now worn by the Duchess of Sussex who famously wore it to her wedding reception in May 2018.Embed from Getty Images
The Countess of Wessex’s aquamarine tiara is another gorgeous piece that features the jewel. She first wore this tiara at the wedding of Hereditary Grand Duke Guillaume of Luxembourg to Countess Stéphanie de Lannoy in October 2012. There are five large aquamarines set as the centre of five flowers, with diamonds making up the petals.
Crown Princess Mary has several aquamarine pieces; however, a standout piece is her dangling aquamarine earrings that feature several smaller aquamarines in a girandole shape. Small diamonds encircle the aquamarines. Mary frequently wears the earrings and can be seen wearing them in an official portrait in Canberra, Australia.Embed from Getty Images
We can’t have a post on royal aquamarines and not mention The Queen’s Brazilian Aquamarine Parure – a tiara that Her Majesty wears quite often. The full set includes a tiara, earrings, necklace, brooch and bracelet. They all feature very large rectangle aquamarines surrounded by diamonds.
