Not sure I like the sapphires with the red dress. The ruby tiara and a nice diamond necklace would have looked better IMO...

It's always nice to see the Leuchtenberg jewels, but that dress doesn't bring out the colour of the stones.


Let's see what our British Ladies bring out tonight. I'd like to see the kokoshnik tiara again, and the aquamarines for Sophie. The honeycomb for Camilla seems to be unavoidable though. The Duchess of Cornwall really needs to vary her tiaras more.


But isn't it a glittering week? Even without stunning surprises it's thrilling to see three State Visits within two days!

That's not really a successful combination. The jewels are gorgeous but doesn't work perfectly with the colour or design of the dress.

Tiara & Jewels guessing for upcoming events

Don't know what i think. Seriously you can never be dissapointed whenever she uses the sapphires but maybe she should have picked an another dress. That red colour almost outshine the blue stones. Maybe a diamond collet or one of her smaller emerald necklases would have looked better

I agree. Too much going on in general.

Definitely a case of the sum not being better than the individual parts. Just too many different things and colors clashing with each other.

With both state dinners tonight, I think the respective First Ladies stole the show. They both looked amazing.

If the tradition continues there will be a white tie return dinner in Finland tonight. I would guess the Queen goes for the Nine Prong Tiara or maybe the Connaught tiara

Queen Silvia is wearing the Nine Prong Tiara to this evenings return dinner.

Great, I got my wish to see Queen Alexandra's kokoshnik tiara again! It has bee a while since QEII wore it the last time.

The nine prongs for Queen Silvia tonight was no surprise, but it worked better with the dress than yesterday's combination, imo. She looked very elegant.


So, will there be a Guildhall Banquet tonight? I hope to see the Duchess of Gloucester with one of the less often tiaras. Maybe the turquoise parure of Queen Mary?

Nice jewels on both ladies but i don't like at all that they are wearing black. Looks more like a funeral procession than a state visit dinner procession.

My guesses for Luxembourg National Day gala in June:

Maria Teresa: Diamond Pearl Choker Tiara
Stephanie: Grand Duchess Adelaide Tiara
Claire: Topaz Tiara
Alexandra: Small Diamond Floral Tiara

With one day to go my hopes for the visit:

Since Maxima is in Denmark and the Danish queen is known to like her jewels, I hope Maxima will finally wear a complete parure. So I hope for the Stuart parure for day 1 and the Mellerio Ruby parure on day 2 (which includes the stomacher which hasn't been seen in ages). The Stuart would be a nice tribute as Juliana worn the parure at Margrethe's wedding. If the Stuart is not wearable yet, I am hoping for the sapphires on Day 1.

QMII with her beautiful flower tiara & those amazing diamonds she wore at Frederik's wedding on day 1 and the emeralds on day 2. Mary with the ruby parure, full setting. She can repeat this on day 2 for all I care as it is such a magnificent set. Benedikte with her fringe tiara.

But I doubt that we will see such surprises. My conservative predictions are the following:

Day 1:
Margrethe II: ON pearl parure (Orange provenance)
Maxima: Mellerio Ruby tiara & necklace but no stomacher (colours of the Danish flag)
Benedikte: Swedish pearl-star tiara
Mary: her pearl-diamond tiara
Marie: flower tiara
Elisabeth: sapphire tiara

Day 2: no tiaras, just necklaces. Maybe the honeycomb for Maxima or a riviere.

I think Queen Máxima will slowly bring "new" pieces:

- the collier from the so-called "New Crown Parure"
- the diamond sévigné in full setting (from the same "New Crown Parure")
- the Borneo bracelet in re-assembled setting
- the art deco devant-de-corsage with the large diamond pendants
- the ancient "Stuart Diamond" as a pendant
- the collier from the Grand Sapphire Parure in orignal setting
- the two massive bracelets from the Grand Sapphire Parure
- the collier from the Peacock Ruby Parure (mirroring the diadem)
- the large devant-de-corsage from the Mellerio Ruby Parure
- the diadem from the so-called "New Crown Parure"
- the triangular motif diamond collier in original setting
- the diamond laurel wreath diadem
- the diamond ears-of-wheat diadem
- the top part from the Van Kempen diadem (with the large diamond stars and upright natural Pearls)
- the remnants from the diamond-and-sapphire collier which was part of the Wedding Gift 1901
- Etc.
- Etc.

Queen Máxima has so many long-not-seen items in the Orange-Nassau collecton to wow us... It is beyond belief.



My predicton for the State Banquet:

HM Queen Margrethe
- the Orange-Nassau pearl poiré diadem
- the diamond collier with the pearl buttons
- the diamond stomacher with the large hanging natural pearls

HM Queen Máxima
- the Bandeau with the old large rose-cut diamonds
- the mirroring rivière (like she wore in Sweden for Victoria's wedding)
- a small diamond broche to fasten her sash
- Queen Emma's art-deco devant-de-corsage with the hanging diamond pendants*
- Queen Juliana's diamond horloge-bracelet
- Two bands from the Borneo diamonds bracelet

* This corsage-de-devant is awesomely impressive, Queen Máxima wore the central stone as a pendant to a diamond rivière, it is really a big bonker, see picture

If Queen Máxima would wear the diamond bandeau tomorrow i would find it disappointing. It may be a nice peace but i think for a State Visit like this too small specially as we can expect Margrethe in one of her big tiaras.
But let's see and wait.

Wouldn't it be inappropriate for the guest to outshine the host ?

I don't think Maxima will use the rose-cut bandeau. She used it when the Swedes came on an official visit (not state visit) last year.

I think one of the ruby parure's will get an outing.

I don't think that Maxima will wear the rose cut bandeau for the big State Banquet. She'll more likely wear a tiara from the bigger parures (or hopefully a complete parure). But if the return dinner has tiaras, the bandeau might be an option.

And at the State Banquet the Danish Queen will probably go for big jewels as well, it think it will be the Orange Nassau pearl tiara with the big pearl collier. So Maxima could definitely wear a complete parure without outshining her host.

Too small? The sheer carat power of that Bandeau most likely will outweigh any other diadem present at the State Banquet tomorrow...

See picture (click on the picture itself to expand and be baffled... )

From the size the rose cute bandeau is quiet small compared to toerhe peaces in the collection.

Queen Juliana never had any problem with that when she blew everyone away with items from the mighty Parure with the House diamonds. See picture. She was Her Majesty The Queen of the Netherlands, Princess of Orange-Nassau, Duchess of Mecklenburg, Princess of Lippe-Biesterfeld and showed it when needed....

Believe me, any lady would immediately swap their mediocre diadems immediaely for those amazing pure diamonds...



Queen Beatrix just wore her smallest diadem in Denmark, so size seems not matter in this case...
