There was no mention of the gala performance in the Opera, but maybe there will be something about in the next edition of this newspaper (which is "Fredriksstad Tilskuer" by the way).
While looking around for this (and more) information on the State Visit to France I also came across a few very clear photos that can be amplified. Sadly I am not able to attach the photos here, but I will leave you all with the link in case you are interested. In fact is is better if you visit the site as you will then be able to increase the size of the photo to hopefully spot some more details:
It is a book with a lot of photos from all sorts of events, but the photos from this visit is at the end - more precisely photos 100 - 105.
Also - even though it has no mention of jewels - I add a link to a site where I found a copy of the menu from the state banquet:
: Thanks Kongetro. Very interesting.
: I have tried to find reports of what Queen
: Maud wore for the grand banquet as well as
: to the evening at L'Opera, but all I could
: discover is that she wore a white dress!
