The Emerald Parure is part of the Danish Crown Jewels, so we might soon see Queen Mary wearing this.

The set consists of a tiara, necklace, brooch and earrings. It was made in 1840 by CM Weisshaupt on the orders of Queen  Caroline Amalie (born of Augustenburg, although the emeralds were originally a gift from King Christian VI to his wife, Queen Sophie Magdalene (born of Brandenburg-Kulmbach) in 1723 for the birth of their son, the future King Frederik V.

These jewels are for the use of the Queen alone and are not allowed to leave the country. If the parure is not in use, it is on display at Rosenborg Castle.
