Tiara Thursday: The Danish Emerald Parure Tiara
The Danish Emerald Parure. In total: 67 emeralds and 2,650 diamonds composing a parure of a tiara, a necklace, earrings, and a brooch. The brooch can disassemble into three brooches, and can also serve as a pendant. The largest 26 emeralds date from 1723, when they were a gift from King Christian VI to Queen Sophie Magdalene. The whole thing was put together in time for Queen Caroline Amalie to wear in 1840. Only the Queen of Denmark is allowed to wear the parure.
