It would be nice if she wore her mother-in-law's wedding tiara at the installation ceremony!

I'm having the mental image of Maxima wearing the full Mellerio Sapphire Parure and it makes me happy. Hopefully the converted necklace can still be worn as a necklace.

Other than that, I can see the Wurtemburg Pearl Tiara (maybe with some of the pearl spikes restored?) and the Stuart Tiara (maybe just once or twice, though).

If this sapphire parure is still in existence with the royal family. I'd love to see at least the necklace. The tiara needs to re-designed for a more modern IMO.

Personally, I hope for some never-before-seen or at the very least long-unseen tiaras from the Dutch vaults.
Luckily, Maxima seems to enjoy wearing jewellery and digging out forgotten pieces so here is a hope the trend continues.

The one tiara I really want to see (especially during the Inauguration ceremony) is the Stuart one; granted, it's heavy and uncomfortable but it's so regal!

Oh no,but this was taken apart long ago...decades ago and is worn by several members of the family in very different ways.It was the sapphire parure,a gift to HM Queen Wilhelmina but as I said,taken apart after her death.

I hope Máxima will wear full Parures for big State Visits (like to or from other monarchies) which Beatrix has never done with the exception of the aquamarines.
I hope to see the entire Stuart parure, the big stomacher from the Mellerio ruby Parure, the necklace from the peackock ruby Parure and other items in the Vault who have not seen the light of the day since ages.

That's a shame- it was quite lovely.

The Stuart tiara was made for a statuesque woman like Maxima. Stunning!

Wow! If that is an accurate redition of size on Maxima then, well, wow! Be still my heart. That woman is made to wear it with style and panache!

The Royal Order of Sartorial Splendor: Tiara Thursday: The Mellerio Sapphire Tiara

Can't wait to see her wear this tiara! Though I really hope she never wears the second setting ever again.

I really hope Maxima wears the Stuart Tiara for her inauguration as Queen

The Royal Order of Sartorial Splendor: Tiara Thursday: The Stuart Tiara

It is an incredible tiara, and one Queen Beatrix has never worn.

Because of it's history I think the Stuart tiara would be ideal for a state visit of King Willem-Alexander and Queen Maxima to the UK.

You can see the Stuart diademe in this film, which was made at queen Margrethe's wedding. Scroll till 33:34 minutes when Juliana enters the church. SPARKLING.

Enjoy!

I like how the camera just stays focused on Juliana and the Stuart tiara. It demands attention.

Wow,that tiara is really huge!Maybe that´s the reason why Q.Beatrix hasn´t worn it.It is definitely appropriate for a special occasion like an inauguration,but for any other event it would be too big in my opinion.
I´m sure Maxima would find a lovely hairstyle to wear this tiara (which I didn´t see before)but if she does,she should rather choose a less dramatic dress and mute colours.
