Royal jewels: Princess Sibylla’s tiara

Crownprincess Margareth of Sweden

Although commonly known as Princess Sibylla’s tiara, this beautiful piece of jewellery first belonged to her mother-in-law Crown Princess Margareta of Sweden. Made by E. Wolff & Co. in 1904, it was presented by the Duke and Duchess of Connaught to their eldest daughter when she married Prince Gustaf Adolf of Sweden in June 1905. Margareta never lived to be queen and the tiara was inherited by her eldest son, Prince Gustaf Adolf, and became a favourite of his wife, Princess Sibylla. Following her death in 1972 it is the property of King Carl XVI Gustaf and has been used frequently by Queen Silvia, who first wore it to the opera on the eve of her wedding. Princess Christina wore it as a bride in 1974 and again at the Nobel banquet in 2001 and in 1983 it was also lent to Princess Lilian for King Olav V of Norway’s 80th birthday celebrations in Oslo. The tiara is in the shape of loops made up of forget me not flowers bound together by bows. The diamond drops hanging within the loops can be unhitched and Princess Madeleine frequently wears the drops attached to a simple necklace string. She has so far never worn the tiara itself, but perhaps her sister’s wedding on Saturday could be a good occasion to do so (unless the bride herself chooses to wear this lighter diadem rather than the cameo tiara)? The above photo of Crown Princess Margareta wearing court dress and the diadem was taken by court photographer Florman shortly after her arrival in Sweden. I bought it at an antiquarian bookseller in Stockholm and as far as I have been able to tell it has never been published before.

And the family grows. Princess Sybilla in 1938 with her and Gustav Adolf's 3 eldest children, L-R: Princess Margaretha, Princess Birgitta and newborn Princess Desiree. Another daughter, Princess Christina, would arrive 5 years later. Like her distant cousin, Empress Alexandra of Russia, Sybilla spent many years under pressure to produce a male heir. That pressure helped to make her life in Sweden difficult.

Princess Sibylla of Sweden in Hovdrakt. In the course of the C19th significant changes were made to the court dress introduced by Gustav III in 1778 . Black velvet might be thought an unlikely fabric for court dress and its sombre weight may have contributed to the eventual abandonment of Hovdrakt.
