In the program Blauw Bloed of Saturday September 22nd we could see Princess Margarita de Bourbon de Parme wearing a beautiful ring of large rose-cut diamonds with a ruby centre-stone. Princess Margarita told the stones of the ring were from Anna Paulovna Romanova, Queen of the Netherlands, Grand-Duchess of Luxembourg born Grand-Duchess of Russia (1795-1865).
I understood the ring is owned by Margarita's mother Princess Irene of the Netherlands. She told about her Dutch/German/Russian roots via her mother and her French/Italian/Spanish roots via her father. She thought it was wonderful that such a ring, tracing such a while back, could be worn by her daughter.
From this I distilled that the four daughters of Queen Juliana (Beatrix, Irene, Margriet and Christina) indeed own personal bijoux, not only contemporary pieces but certainly also historic pieces. This ring was new to me (but also Queen Máxima has been seen with similar rings, maybe four rings were made?)
