The Duchess of Edinburgh, Sophie, dazzled with her elegance at the state dinner held at Buckingham Palace in honor of South Korean President Yoon Suk-yeol and his wife, Kim Keon-hee.
Prince Edward’s wife followed in the footsteps of Princess Kate Middleton, choosing a beautiful white gown by Suzannah London that she had worn at the coronation of King Charles at Westminster Abbey.
But it was the spectacular aquamarine tiara that adorned her head that drew the most attention.
Tiara of Sophie, Duchess of Edinburgh
The tiara is one of Sophie’s favorites, known as the Wessex Aquamarine Tiara, named after her former title of Countess of Wessex.
The tiara was made especially for her and features a wave-shaped diamond design that evokes the sea.
For this state dinner, the wife of Prince Edward paired the piece with an aquamarine necklace and a silver clutch, creating a harmonious and sophisticated ensemble.
The tiara has a curious history, as it is convertible and can be used as a necklace. Sophie wore it this way to a London gala in 2006, demonstrating her versatility and good taste.
Undoubtedly, the Duchess of Edinburgh knows how to make the most of her jewelry and dazzle on special occasions.
