As far as we're concerned, tiaras are one of the major perks of being a member of the royal family, and while the British royals may be particularly famous for their toppers, they're certainly not the only ones with enviable crowning jewels. Princess Sofia of Sweden, for example, gave us a major tiara moment at a state banquet at the Royal Castle in Stockholm for the official visit of Finland's President and First Lady this week.

On Tuesday, the princess stepped out with her husband, Prince Carl Philip, for the event, wearing a flowing, red, floor-length gown and her royal honors, accented by a very special tiara—the Palmette Tiara, which was gifted to her by her in-laws, King Carl XVI Gustaf and Queen Silvia, for her wedding day. However, Sofia made a slight tweak to the tiara for this appearance, swapping the emeralds that appeared in it on her wedding day for pearls.

It's not the first time the royal has made a slight change to her tiara either—she donned the same one for the Swedish royal family's recently released portraits, but on that occasion, the topper had neither emeralds or pearls, only its diamond base.

Sofia certainly wasn't alone in her choice to wear a tiara for the big night—the following day Sweden and Finland submitted applications to join NATO—as both her mother-in-law Queen Silvia, and sister-in-law Crown Princess Victoria both opted for sparkling headpieces as well. Victoria chose the Napoleonic Cut-Steel Tiara, a favorite of hers, which she also wore for the royal family's official portraits, while Queen Silvia wore the King Edward VII Ruby Tiara.
