Gemini, I understood what you meant when I looked at a couple of photos from daytime events. She really seems to prefer jewellery with a casual, simple and contemporary touch.
It's different with jewellery for evening events, I think, where she mostly goes for a very traditional and representative style, often a bit cold and generalized in design, which I find not far away from that Hartmanns ring, the two or three Lynggaard pieces being a welcome exception.
I must admit, regarding contemporary jewellery I'd love to see one of these highly professional, disciplined, beautiful, well-dressed young royal women showing preferences for more individual pieces, one-offs instead of multiples and series, more daring and unconventional designs instead of repeating traditional "Formensprache", developing a personal style rather then fulfilling expectations what a princess should look like.
