I saw the set at the exhibition, it looked even better than on the photo.
It would be nice if the king would by the set but I am not sure if it is for sale.

After the deaths of Jhr. Willem François Clifford de Kocq van Breugel two years ago and his wife Jeanne Bss van Nagell in 2007, their children have been busy trying to preserve the collection and make it accessable to the public. They donated some portraits of Nagell anscestors to the fund Gelderse Kastelen, which placed them in Castle De Schaffelaar. They also donated some family heirlooms to the Nairac museum. If they want to get rid of the jewels, it seems logical that they would approach the RF first.

These jewels are simply spectacular indeed. I only wonder about the pearls. I find it an odd combination, as if one has run out of money and used a strand of pearls.

In addition to this post: the website Adel in Nederland (Nobility in the Netherlands) has an article which shows a portrait with this set of amethysts. As mentioned in the posts above, the amtehysts were given by Queen Anna Pavlovna of the Netherlands to (the daughter of) her Grandmastress, Baroness van Nagell.

See: Op stand aan de wand: barones Van Nagell en de amethisten van Koningin Anna Paulowna. - Adel in Nederland

The lady on the portrait is Simonette Marie Baroness van Nagell née Baroness van Haersolte van Haerst (1914-1990). On the portrait she wore it with more pearl strands, which resulted in a more complete look than on the exhibition. Also an aigrette with amethysts is worn in the hair of the Baroness. Looking to the functions, it is not so strange that Queen Anna was so generous, to give one of her parures:

Christien Jacques Adrien Baron van Nagell (1784-1883), Chamberlain of the King
x Justina Maria Wilhelmina Juckema van Burmania Baroness Rengers (1795-1863), Grandmastress of the Queen
= Justinus Egbert Hendrik Baron van Nagell

Justinus Egbert Hendrik Baron van Nagell (1825-1901), Crown Equerry of the King
x Sophia Barones Schimmelpenninck van der Oye (1828-1897), Dame du Palais of the Queen
= Anne Willem Jacob Joost Baron van Nagell

Anne Willem Jacob Joost Baron van Nagell (1851-1936)
x Johanna Magdalena Cornelia Baroness van Zuylen van Nievelt (1856-1934)
= Justinus Egbertus Baron van Nagell

Justinus Egbertus Baron van Nagell (1882-1963)
x Simonette Marie Baroness van Haersolte van Haerst (1814-1990)
=
Jeanne Linnie Alice Baroness van Nagell

Jeanne Linnie Alice Baroness van Nagell (1918-2007)
x Jonkheer Willem Francois Clifford Kocq van Breugel (1914-2015)
= their children own these jewels now

I think Max could do with a better emerald tiara than what she has. Rather than acquire a new one, I thought she could alter the Mallerio Ruby and Diamond tiara so that the rubies can be replaced with emeralds. The resultant tiara would have the wattage and presence that the existing emerald tiara lacks. The accompanying ruby and diamond collier could also be altered to allow for emeralds.
Any changes made should be on a reversible basis as the existing parure looks lovely as it is.
