    Thanks for the pic's Mary and welcome to the Pearl Guide.

    I agree the bottom row is to crammed but hey if she likes it, good on her.

    I doubt she'd be wearing gear like that if she married an aussie bloke.

    Welcome to the forum, Mary I kinda like the pearl tiara better. It looks more elegant. I wonder how long the two daughter in-laws had to practice before they were able to wear tiaras effortlessly

    Wow, ladies, those are some awesome royal pearls. And seriously, used as a toothpick?!? Loved the dangling globules of pearls on that one tiara alone.

    Rusty, you had better get Princess Mary some of your pearls now that Queen E has one of yours

    Thanks Mary and Karin for the pic's.
    Adeline, It's a buzz knowing The Queen of England has one of our Pearls.
    It was paid for in Austalian dollars. Same deal for Pricess Mary if She'd like one.
    I'm not so sure they actally need one though after seeing these pic's.

    Actually an afterthought, Rusty & Bronwyn - Princess Mary's beautiful sister-in-law Marie and her husband have an Australian connection - Joachim has actually spent more time in Australia than Frederick has, he jackeroo'ed in Wagga in southern NSW for a year. Marie is also the patron of several Danish jewellery events, so
    it would actually be a much bigger coup if you could get some of your pearls onto the beautiful (and younger) Marie!

    You could write to Jokke and Marie at:
    Schackenborg Slot
    Mogeltoender
    South Jutland
    Denmark

    Many Thanks Mary, Bronwyn and I are actually small fry as Modern Pearl Farming goes. We do not produce the volume required to launch an international awareness campain.

    We are pretty happy just doin our thing up hear in the wilderness. We sell to those that are interested but are not chasing international recognition.

    Our philanthropy is directed to special needs children here in North east Australia.

    We wish the Danish Royal Family well but, realistically, our situations are very far apart.

    Thanks for your thoughts and we look forward to your further corresponding on the Pearl-Guide
