The President of Finland, His Excellency Niinisto Vainamo, and Mrs Jenni Elina Haukio paid a state visit to Denmark from 4 to 5 April. The last state visit from Finland to Denmark was in 2001, while the last state visit from Denmark to Finland was back in 1973.

On April 4, there was a state dinner in honour of the President and the First Lady, and as usual, the Danish royal ladies dazzled in the jewellery department.
Queen Margrethe wore the Danish Floral Aigrette Tiara together with diamond riviere and earrings.
Crown Princess Mary wore her Wedding Tiara, which personally I prefer to the much more often seen Diamond and Ruby Tiara from the ruby parure. Princess Marie wore her Diamond Floral Tiara – the same one she wore on her wedding day. No surprises there since it’s the only tiara from the royal collection she has the use of (as far as we know, it’s not even hers). Princess Benedikte wore my favourite tiara from her collection - Queen Ingrid's Diamond Stars and Pearls Tiara.

All those tiaras will be covered within a day, so stay tuned!
