The King's sisters' jewellery

The King's sisters — Princesses Margaretha, Birgitta, Désirée and Christina — wore the following jewellery:

Princess Margaretha, Mrs Ambler wore a tiara with aquamarines, that used to belong to crown prinsess Margaretha (Princess Margaretha's grand mother).

Princess Birgitta of Hohenzollern Sigmaringen wore the tiara which, in accordance with Bernadotte family tradition, is known as Queen Sofia's tiara. This was probably made for Queen Sofia around 1860.

Princess Désirée, Baroness Silfverschiöld wore jewellery featuring amethysts and diamonds. This set of jewellery belonged to Queen Josefina (the consort of King Oscar I).

Princess Christina, Mrs Magnuson wore the six-button tiara. King Karl XIV Johan had these diamond rosettes affixed to the crown ring of King Erik XIV's royal crown from 1560 in preparation for his coronation at Stockholm Cathedral in 1818. During the reign of King Gustaf V, the old royal crown was restored and the diamond rosettes were removed. These have since been shaped into the six-button tiara.
