Happy Birthday to Princess Alexia of Greece, who turns 57 today! The eldest daughter of King Constantine II and Queen Anne-Marie of Greece, granddaughter of four Sovereigns, and niece of Queen Margrethe of Denmark and Queen Sofia of Spain, Princess Alexia has attended a plethora of glittering occasions, often wearing these Diamond Earrings.
Featuring a pear-shaped diamond topped by two leaves, all suspended from a small diamond, the Diamond Earrings seem to originate from Crown Princess Margareta of Sweden, and are similar in design to her Connaught Diamond Tiara.
The earrings were inherited by her daughter, Queen Ingrid of Denmark, who seems to have given the earrings as a wedding gift to her eldest granddaughter, Princess Alexia, who first wore them on her wedding day in 1999, with the Khedive of Egypt Tiara also from Crown Princess Margareta.

The Diamond Earrings have been regularly worn by Princess Alexia at a variety of events, including the Wedding of Crown Prince Frederik of Denmark, Crown Prince Felipe’s Wedding Gala, and the Wedding of Prince Joachim. Their classic design makes them a perfect pair with her Diamond Tiara, and also with a modern diamond necklace owned by Queen Anne Marie. We have no doubt we will continue to see them for years to come!
