Re: Queen Wilhelmina - tiara
I doubt it. The rose cut tiara was made from Queen Emma's wedding gift necklace. Emma left some of her jewels to her daughter (the wedding gift diamond stomacher and the Ruby Parure) while others went directly to her granddaughter Juliana (the sapphire set and the rose cut necklace that was made into a tiara for Juliana). It is not easy to tell how things went as i get the impressing Wilhelmina had no problem letting her daughter wear some of her pieces but never considered dipping into her daughter's jewellery casket.
