The Royal Order of Sartorial Splendor: Tiara Thursday: The Dutch Aquamarine Tiara

Never was a fan of this tiara. I don't like the art deco design or the shape of the aquamarines. Though I do love the necklace and the earrings.

Many people compare them to lollipops. I see light bulbs. The entire thing resembles a contraption one might find in a mad scientist's laboratory.

The Royal Order of Sartorial Splendor: Tiara Thursday: The Dutch Sapphire Necklace Tiara

This tiara is magnificent! That shade of blue is very beautiful. One of the best conversion of a necklace to a tiara. This tiara is one of my favorites in the Dutch royal collection.

This one of my all-time favorite conversion period. It's so well done and so pretty.

Agreed.
The only thing that would make this tiara better would be if it can convert back to a necklace.

True because otherwise there is no matching necklace to the mellerio sapphire tiara anymore. Not that it was worn as parure often in the last years but i hope that Queen Máxima will also wear afull parure for big Events.

IMO Maxima has the best "jewel box" of all the CP's and yet she insists on wearing all that chucky stone age stuff that IMO appears ridulous on her I love all here genuine jewels they are so perfect...

From last night's concert here are Maxima's ruby, emerald, and sapphire and diamond earrings and bracelets and diamond bracelets. I can't tell if the earrings are precious stones but the bracelets are real gems.I love how she piles on the jewels when she has the opportunity.

Difficult to be sure from the pictures, but I think the earrings could be Indian "Kundan" jewellery. This is a very old style of jewellery dating back to the Mughal times, and typically these are made of gold, with coloured enamed (red, green and blue being the usual choice). Often they can be encrusted with uncut diamonds and other precious stones.

Princess Michael of Kent also has a large kundan demi-parure, which she has worn on at least two occassions with a plain red dress. The last time was at the 70th birthday party for King Constantine of Greece a few years ago.

The sapphire tiara was worn so perfect on Maxima. It just gets lost on Princess Margriet. and what about those sapphire earrings, just so gorgeous and the bracelets. There vault just goes on and on.

Lovely jewels, but I'm surprised she doesn't have (or didn't wear) a more dressy watch. The leather strap looks too sporty with the formal outfit:

Well, she is the only member of the RF who actually wore an impressive watch recently:

Diamond Watch

a 50th birthday present for Queen Juliana, which has only been worn by the princess after Queen Juliana died IIRC. Sadly she didn't wear it this time.

It might have been a tad too much with her other jewels,I might be alone here but I don't like Queen Juliana's diamond watch.

That looks more like a bracelet than a watch, but I have to say I don't like the band too much and overall, it looks too bulky.

Even if Max had worn a watch with a gold or silver band, not necessarily a diamond one, it would have looked nicer with her jewels than her strap watch.
