Sylvia is the ultimate tiara queen. Her ability to do tiara hair well, really creates the perfect frame for these works of art. The Braganza and the Lux Empire sure make the Ansorena Heart look like the m-i-l hide in the attic gift you described.
Anyone who is worried that, because she was born a commoner, Catherine (Middleton) won't be able to carry off Queendom, only need look at Silvia-proof that it can be done!(ditto Mary and Maxima, of course.)
Wow, Silvia looks like Natalie Wood here -- such a beauty.
Not a fave of mine - I like more width as well as flow in the design. I much prefer the topaz necklace, maybe that's pushing a friendship in tiara territory...sorry!!!! Silvia is certainly a beauty, and carries these magnificent jewels with aplomb. It must be daunting in your early years of Queenship.
Wow, what a beauty she is...she looks like a hollywood movie star, but it's way much better to be queen then a movie star anyhow. Didn't she wear that necklace to her daughter's wedding? If I remember correctly she wore a lavender silk lace gown with those jewels and the combination was really beautiful..Please correct me if I am wrong. Somewhere I remember that necklace with a lavender gown...any ideas?
Yes she did.
So that's what the Braganza looks like up close! In other photos, I could never see any detail to that tiara. It's lovely.
She is one of not many royals who knows how to coordinate her beautiful jewels with wardrobe
