Happy Birthday to Princess Sibilla of Luxembourg, who turns 50 today! One of the illustrious brides to marry into the Grand Ducal Family in recent years, today we are taking a look at her glittering Art Deco Tiara and some of her other jewels.
A gift to Princess Sibilla from her family sometime after her wedding to Prince Guillaume in 1994, this Art Deco Tiara can be worn in larger and smaller settings, and has notably been worn at the Wedding of Crown Prince Haakon of Norway in 2001 and the Wedding Ball of the Prince of Prussia in 2011. In 2021, the Tiara was worn at the Wedding Ball of the Prince of Schaumburg-Lippe.
Princess Sibilla has also loaned the Tiara to her sister-in-law, Countess Diane de Nassau, and to Princess Silvia d’Arenberg for the wedding of Princess Madeleine of Sweden.
Princess Sibilla also owns a lovely ruby and diamond floral necklace, which was a wedding gift by Grand Duke Jean and Grand Duchess Joséphine-Charlotte, and worn for the first time at her pre-wedding Ball. It is one of the most worn pieces, appearing at the majority of her gala events, most recently last week.
In addition to her own jewels, Princess Sibilla has worn Queen Victoria Eugenie’s Aquamarine Parure, which belongs to her mother and aunt. A gift from King Alfonso XIII, Queen Victoria Eugenie gave the Tiara and Parure to her daughter, Infanta Beatrice, whose daughters own the piece now. It is expected that Princess Sibilla will inherit the parure. She wore the Tiara with a large diamond riviere, which she also owns, at the Pre-Wedding Gala of Hereditary Grand Duke Guillaume.
