o my gosh, Margriet does pull it off: she quite makes that weird-looking tiara look quite, well, lovely! I guess what many members before me have said in other threads, is true: tiara-wise, it helps being a brunette!

and yes, Maxima seems to be wearing "Mabel's" tiara. Indeed the thing looks infinitely better on the future Dutch queen than it did on poor Mabel's head. All the same, I still don't like that (version of that) tiara.

I am positive about it. The tiara seems to have some sort of spikes, so it cant be the laurel tiara. It has to many spikes to be Queen Ann's tiara (or the aquamarine tiara), and the upper part of the tiara seems bigger then the lower part.

I agree with Olga btw, the first time I don't dislike the triangular motive necklace as a tiara, Margriet can pull it of (and she looks great IMO).

I remembered back on the Russian State Visit, it was Maxima who accompanied the First Lady on the 2nd/3rd day, why today it was Margriet who accompanied the President?

however, yes, Margriet looks lovely as usual. She somehow looks younger..

I don't know why it was Margriet who accompanied the president today. Maybe Maxima was elsewhere engaged or they just decided to split the activities up, so that they all would have something to do?

I think Margriet looks great, both her gala dress and her day outfit. Very pretty necklace with today's outfit.

I also like Maxima's purple gala dress.

You could be quite right there.

Mabel's wedding tiara is still our best guess...
It's a real pity that no one of the photographers came to the brilliant thought that maybe we wanted to see some jewels! :(

It's so nice to see Margriet being given such a prominent role for this visit from Ukraine. Today she got to escort the president around & last night she had the most visible tiara. Good for her!

Maxima's tiara: I think it is a 'construction' of the sapphire tiara, because she wore the sapphire broche too. Last month Beatrix worn the sapphire jewels in Latvia!

Margriet's tiara is this tiara: (image from seegerpress)

The Oranje Nassau jewel collection has been put in a Family Foundation headed by the Queen. Her sister and daughters in law can choose from the collection as long as they do not outshine Her Majesty herself!

Well, good people, I hate to rain on anybody's parade but that thinge on Maxima looks like some kind of party toy from K Mart. They need to take those gorgeous dimonds and do something with them. As for the present arrangement it should be sent over to the worst royal jewels thread where it could be properly appreciated. Gorgeous Woman, hideous tiara. Cheers.

Well, Princess Máxima is by far the 'Crown Princess' with the biggest variety in diademes. Some of them are beauties, some of them are not.

- The diamond stars diademe
- The diademe from Princess Juliana's aquamarine parure
- Queen Anna Paulovna's pavolnik diademe (without the upright pearls)
- The diamond sun-rays monture from Queen Emma's grand parure of diamonds and sapphires
- The bandeau with the large rose-cut heirloom diamonds
- Queen Wilhelmina's triangular motif diamond diademe
- The diademe from Queen Emma's Mellerio-parure with diamonds and rubies
- The diademe from the Emerald Parure (with the emeralds replaced by diamonds and the prongs replaced by upright pearls)

and other fabulous jewelry like the Mellerio diamonds and rubies collier, various pearl colliers with and without diamond clasps, bracelets and brooches from the 'Peacock Parure', aquamarine jewelry, turquoise jewelry, diamond cresents jewelry with orange citrine stones, sapphire jewelry, etc. etc.

And she still has to wear the grand items of the House.
