Happy Birthday to Crown Princess Mette-Marit of Norway, who turns 46 today! To mark the day, we are taking a look at her versatile Diamond Flowers, which are a staple in her jewellery box-
Crown Princess Mette-Marit has been wearing these Diamond Flowers since the mid-2000s, most often as a pair of earrings, either just the stud portion, or with large pearl pendents.
The Diamond Flowers have also been worn as brooch and as hair slides, and are on unknown provenance, though given their design, they were probably acquired by the Crown Princess, or an acquisition of Queen Sonja passed down.
This article is dedicated to the recently departed veteran Royal Reporter Kjell Arne Totland, a lovely twitter friend, who would have surely provided me with more information about these pieces! May he Rest in Peace!
