The Braganza Tiara
Queen Silvia’s largest tiara is the Braganza Tiara. This showstopping piece is only pulled out for special occasions and (almost) never leaves the country. Besides wearing it to her husband’s 60th birthday dinner in 2006 and her daughter Victoria’s wedding in 2010, Silvia mostly only pulls it out for incoming state visits. She has worn it for almost every state visit from a visiting monarch. It appears that the only time she hasn’t worn it was in 1979 when the Spanish King and Queen visited. The only photo I’ve seen has her wearing the Leuchtenberg Sapphire Tiara. Spain has not returned to Sweden for a State Visit since then. If they ever return, it is likely Silvia will wear the tiara. In 2007, Silvia made a special exception when she took the tiara out of Sweden to wear it in Denmark for the State Visit.

I miss when there were lots of state visits with lots of occasions to wear tiaras.
