Celebrating ones 50th anniversary as Queen of Denmark makes a full calendar - even though many of the events have either been cancelled or given a new date. But the opening of the exhibition "A Queen's Jewellery Box" was still on.
The exhibition is exhibited at Christian VIII's Palace at Amalienborg. On display are over 200 known and more unknown pieces of jewellery of hers exhibited. They all have something to do with her personal life and of course, her life as Queen of Denmark. A part of the exhibition focused on Queen Ingrid's jewellery later inherited to her daughter.
For the opening, Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary has chosen to take the short walk from their home at Frederik VIII's Palace to Christian VIII's Palace. The are a few hundred meters apart. Princess Benedikte also attended the official opening honouring her sister on occasion of her big sisters anniversary.
Director of Kongernes Samling, cabinet secretary Henning Fode and museum director Thomas C. Thulstrup gave the opening speeches. They were followed by the Queen herself, who officially opened the exhibition.
Well, well, well. What a look! For me, it was love a first sight. It took me breathless. Just look at her, she shine like a star on a cloudless night. Mary truly impressed me with her red tweed skirt from Alexander McQueen and that creamy white Ralph Lauren jacket. Both pieces are previously own on several occasions. Among other events, she wore the skirt at the presentation of Hjertneforeningen's and Børnehjertefonden's Research Grants 2019 (here). The stunning light brown wool shawl is also on old pieces. I have never been able to identify it, but maybe one day I will.
Mary embraced the style of her magnificent outfit by wearing yellow and white diamond earrings. The impressive, rather huge, diamond ring are from Dulong Fine Jewelry. The other one is a golden diamond ring from Rebekka Notkin.
I do not know if you noticed her new golden brooch as well? Many did not see it. I recognized it right away: it a design by Ditte Bjerregaard and Sofie Elkjær Jensen. They created this incredible golden brooch on occasion of the 50th anniversary for Georg Jensen. The design is inspired by the Queen's quite: "God's help, the love of the people, the strength of Denmark". The Queen was given a special edition in gold and with studded diamonds (here). Mary's is in plain gold. The brooch can be purchased, but in silver with a golden detail. She also matched the outfit with same-colour Prada pumps and her 1602 clutch.
