I wanted to make something very special, so I came up with the idea of making a page all about her jewelry.

It has taken a long time to make. First of all, I needed the information of all the jewelry.

I have made this into different sections so that it is easy to go through.

I owe a huge thanks to TAMARA for all her help with this jewelry page...without her, this page would not have been possible.

     Necklace From Sosus School Randers

Photo By ?

This necklace was a gift to Princess Alexandra when she want to the Sosus school in Randers May 4, 2005

Social Health School in Randers.


We would like to give her some thing that she can use said Louise Nielsen.

Looking though magazines gave the students an idea what stile Princess Alexandra likes.

She often wear classic jewelry. The students gave money to the gift.

They found  a necklace made of fresh water pearls and a peridot stone as earrings made by Hanne Bloch.

We think that the green stones fits Princess Alexandra's glow. We hope that it is a jewelry she would use

said Louise Nielsen who gave the Princess the jewelry.

I am going to look  more careful at photos of the Princess now and see if she is wearing it.
