I think a stomacher is a big brooch worn under the chest. You can usually see them in old photos from the last century. Maybe someone has a better explanation.

Here is a pic of one of Queen Mary's stomachers:

Here is a pic of her wearing the Cambridge Emeralds as stomacher:

Basically, these are just visuals about how a stomacher is shaped and where it is worn. Right down the bodice.

Giant red earrings

Not my cup of tea. They are too big for her.

I think earring (juwelery) in a more classical design (more like the style of CP Mary or CP Victoria) will suit Maxima more. Not always these cheap looking big earrings

I'm curious, why don't the Dutch royal ladies wear thier jewels more? Is it
a rule to only wear them for State occasions? You see the other Royals
wear things for special evenings. The Dutch have some beautiful pieces that
would be perfect for a lesser event, maybe a brooch or a pair of earrings.
Anyone have some insight.? Many Thanks!!

I think it has everything to do with Queen Beatrix' personal dislike of grand jewelry. Queen Juliana used to put on a good show and usually wore a full parure, with some extra bling bling added to that. Queen Beatrix however has never ever worn a parure and she leaves the bigger necklaces and brooches (and tiara) collecting dust in Noordeinde. Princess Maxima can not out-glitter her mother-in-law too much, so she is restricted and can not wear too much either.

Apart from her personal dislike for big jewels I think the Queen has a sort of philosophy behind it. The same philosophy that got her a Ford Scorpio car or a Volvo: don' t show off too much, Dutchmen are calvinists and they won't like it. IMO she is wrong in this. WA's birthday celebrations were considered grand (and probably a waste of money) anyway, a tiara wouldn' t have made it worse.

Marengo, thank you and I agree it doesn't cost anything to wear the already existing jewels.(except the gas to drive to the vault and get them HEHE).

I have noticed something about Princess Maxima's pearl earrings. She has a few different settings but are using the same pearls. White South Sea, Grey Tahitian and Black Tahitian. The pearls can be switched around, I have seen this in very fine stores and it is expensive, they put a screw in the pearl so they can be changed, I love her pearl earrings, which are sometimes more daytime and sometimes more formal...!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Has anyone else noticed this. sorry i dont know how to post pics but she wears them alot!!!

Thanks for that info Victoria, your site is a treasure!

I was wondering if Maxima ever wore these earrings in the complete version? I can't recall it I think. It is nice that she added this to the jewel colection, it is very different from the other, more conservative pieces, that the RF owns.

Me too! The Dutch RF has some serious "blingbling" in their "treasuresaves". We should have more State Occasions!!
