While we're on the subject of being obsessed with royals and everything they do (thanks, Meghan and Harry!), we need to discuss Princess Sofia of Sweden's wedding tiara.


Here's a handy zoom:


Sofia wore this tiara, given to her by her in-laws King Carl XVI Gustaf and Queen Silvia, during her marriage to Prince Carl Philip of Sweden in 2015. As you can see, it's made of diamonds and emeralds. 

In the interest of being thrifty, perhaps (after all, how many brand new tiaras does one really need?), Sofia stepped out in her wedding tiara while at the 2017 Nobel Prize Award ceremony—where she hacked it to look completely different.

As you can see, Sofia replaced the gems with pearls.


Which turns the piece into a slightly more understated accessory.


Hands up if you're going to style your own (imaginary) tiara this way?
