Sparkly Spotlight: A Closer Look at the Gala Jewels

As the last act of National Day, the Grand Ducal Family hosted a reception for the members of government, the bureau of the Chamber of Deputies, the Council of State, representatives of the judiciary, heads of the administration and foreign ambassadors. Because I love all things sparkly and I'm predictable like that, here's a jewel spotlight on the Grand Ducal ladies.

Grand Duchess Maria Teresa topped off her gala appearance with the Belgian Scroll Tiara (which is really nice but it's getting a bit boring because it is slowly becoming the only tiara she seems to wear). She fixed her sash with Princess Ingeborg's Pearl and Diamond Brooch that has been owned by no less than four European royal families. Rounding off her ensemble are her two-coloured pearl earrings and several rings.

Hereditary Grand Duchess Stéphanie opted for the tiara and earrings of the Turqouise Parure. Luckily, she swapped the usual necklace for the grander turquoise necklace of the Grand Ducal Family, which is a thing on beauty - and I don't even particularly like turquoises in gala jewellery. She also wore several rings.

Princess Claire went for a sleak look choosing the Grand Duchess Adelaide Tiara and diamond earrings that are part of the grand ducal collection but rather rarely worn.

Princess Alexandra chose to accesorisse with the Aquamarine Bandeau Tiara, earrings formerly belonging to her paternal grandmother Grand Duchess Joséphine-Charlotte, as well as a bracelet featuring a large aquamarine and a diamond ring.

What's your verdict? Which jewel appearance did you like best and which tiara could you have done without?
