I always thought that the necklace was borrowed - I did not know that it belongs to Maxima.

This necklace was sold at auction (I think in Christie's) few years ago. W-A could be a buyer (the most possible) or buyer lent this piece to Maxima.

At first I did not like her engagement ring but then it grew on me.I like how unique it is.The colored stone is gorgeous.Though I personally would not wear it.Personally,I would replace the stone with a regular diamond for me.

Is that a yellow diamond in Maxima's ring? Those are nice stones, but I'd also go for the conventional white diamonds. I don't like the setting, though.

Yes, I think it's yellow diamond, which looks a little orange and is a reference to the House of Orange-Nassau.

The engagement ring is definitely very pretty, but like others have said, I'd go for a conventional white diamond (or a light blue one). The bracelet and necklace in the earlier post are very pretty too. She has a unique taste in jewelry.

The central stone of Maxima's engagement ring is a unique oval orange diamond. It was a highly symbolic choice since the reigning House of the Netherlands is the House of Orange-Nassau. Orange is also the historic national colour of the Netherlands and, up until the 17th century, was on the country's flag (now, it's the Prince's Flag). And of course, Prince Willem-Alexander is The Prince of Orange.

I personally LOVE Maxima's engagement ring, it is symbolic, and tastefully designed, imo. Was thinking that when she becomes Queen one day, how lovely it would be to have a parure comprising of a tiara, necklace with earrings and a bracelet as her signature pieces that would incorporate this rare orange diamond.

The following http://www.duroje.org/Mellerio_Ruby_Parure.htm could be adapted as such, as it was originally designed for sapphires, but now has the ruby as the center stone- maybe she should put that on WA's wish list...............

I don't care that much for the ruby peacock tiara, but those pictures of Max wearing it with her hair up and with that gorgeous ruby and diamond necklace are just breathtaking.
