The Royal Order of Sartorial Splendor: Inauguration Special: Máxima's Tiaras, Revisited

My number one favorite tiara she has worn that stunning Rose Cut tiara. I almost love every tiara here excluding, the Pearl Button tiara, the Aquamarine tiara, the Mellerio Sapphire (diamond setting version) tiara, and the Festoon tiara.

Maxima is so lucky to have worn so many tiaras as a Crown Princess. I can't wait to see the jewels she will wear when she is Queen.

The pearl earrings of Maxima are really one of my faves in that the white pearls can be replaced with Tahitian and they can be taken apart to be worn with only a diamond in between the pearls or with out the drop. I would guess they were a wedding gift. I love when jewels can be worn different ways. For me it makes it seem more affordable.....yeah right says my husband!!!!

The Dutch do have a very impressive collection but I'm not mad about all of them,it will be interesting to see which one Maxima wears next week.

The Dutch jewel collection is definitely very eclectic, but there are certain pieces that I don't like - namely that "mountain range" tiara.

Agree B of B but I am not sure that I don't like any they are just all from such different times and for such different personalites ... but the sapphire and the bandeau are my favourites I think .... but I may change my mind she has the best jewel box IMO

I find that some of these tiaras are either too sparse or too peaky, such as the Dutch emerald tiara, the ruby peacock tiara and the pearl button tiara. The bandeau is a beauty and if worn with a full updo, the Mellerio ruby tiara, although the sides are a little odd.

I understand where you come from and you are right,on some,but one won't have to sit on it so never mind the peaks...grin...

What will be on for a diademe...it is old,it is adjusted to the occasion and the different time and taste,but it is mindblowing still.The whole packedge is if you allow me to put it that way,is simply,well,Máxima.

How about the large diamond pendant? Could it be part of the Queen Emma's devant de corsage?

If that is really the Stuart Diamond, that means we probably won't get to see it tomorrow, correct?

I don't think it's the Stuart diamond. The one worn by maxima is a round diamond, while the Stuart diamond is pear shaped. I think Maxima is wearing the central diamond of Queen Emma's devant de corsage:

One of my favourites but I don't like her hair it doesn't do the tiara any justice at all IMO.

The Stuart Diamond is more pear-shaped though?
