Royal Jewellery - The Danish Emerald Parure Necklace and Tiara
The Danish Emerald Parure largely consist of 67 emeralds and 2650 diamonds balanced out between a tiara, a necklace, a pair of earrings and a brooch. The largest 26 emeralds are dated all the way back to 1723, given as a gift from King Christian VI to his Queen Sophie Magdalene after she had given birth to their son, the future King Frederik V. The remaining smaller emeralds came from various parts the family. In 1840, all of the emeralds were put together by C.M. Weisshaupt for Queen Caroline Amalie to wear on the occasion of her silver wedding anniversary to King Christian VIII. The parure is a part of Denmark’s crown jewels - and there are special rules for the crown jewels: only the current Queen of Denmark is allowed to them, they are not to be taken outside of Denmark; and that they is on public display on Rosenborg Castle and the Queen has to send for them every time she wants to wear them, alas meaning that she doesn’t wear this lovely parure all that often.
