The Swedish Amethyst Tiara was a necklace when Queen Silvia married into the family in 1976. Featuring large oval amethysts surrounded by diamonds & separated by diamond elements in the French Empire style, it was a cumbersome piece. Silvia noted in the documentary De Kongelige Juveler, it was heavy & uncomfortable to wear. So she had a tiara made by adding the necklace to a frame, solving the problem of a too-heavy necklace & filling the absence of an amethyst tiara in the royal collection.
