I agree with Baroness of Books -more of a bracelet than a watch! It's so beautiful!

That's some watch! It looks great on Maxima. Because she is so tall and larger boned, it seems, she can get away with more bulky jewlery. (not some of her Betty Rubble costume stuff though)

Completely agree with your statement, Frelinghighness! With a frail,thin structure those bulky jewels would look oversized and strange,but on Maxima pretty much anything goes;-)
I find the Diamond watch very interesting,great craftmanship & impressive design. Again-I would never wear such an ostentatious piece,but on CP Maxima it looks absolutely stunning & spectacular!

And she is able to wear the "in the bracelet hidden watch" on Big White Tie events as well - without breaching the law not to wear wristwatches at Big Gala events.
Really clever

Oh, I did not know about such a law...I would break it without knowing;-) When I am at glamourous events, weddings etc. I usually take a ladylike and elegant watch that I don´t wear for everyday.
Very smart,CP Maxima,to dodge that rule so elegantly and nice by chosing this bracelet-watch

I don't think there is such a rule, not nowadays anyway.
Queen Elizabeth regularly (almost always, really) wears her diamond or gold watches to state banquets or gala - and she should know all the rules well enough.

Maxima wearing gorgeous pearls as she attends the Queensday concert. I'm sorry to see Queen Beatrix go but I can't wait for the jewels of Queen Consort Maxima.

The pearls are stunning I am speechless and then she goes and wears all those silly bits of wood from her ears ... the photos are stunning.

Those pearls indeed leave me speechless; they look larger than marbles. I actually love those earrings more than the necklace. When they look as large as that, the pearls remind me of the popbead necklaces I had when I was a child. But I wouldn't quibble if I got a strand of those beauties!

The Royal Order of Sartorial Splendor: Tiara Thursday: The Mellerio Ruby Tiara

I don't think this tiara is very impressive though it is still beautiful. I like the unique design and especially those diamond strings.

If I could choose one of the ruby Dutch tiaras I would rather have the Peacock one.

I think she first wore them at a visit to one of the Baltic states in 2002 or 2003. The necklace and earrings are not part of the historic collection of Orange jewels. Perhaps they were a wedding present?

They might be the same pearls she wore at Sverre Magnus' christening

I did some googling and the first time I recall seeing these jewels was on 21 Juni 2002, at a gala dinner hosted by the president of Latvia.

Thanks for the photos, everyone. I noticed in this picture, there's a diamond clasp in the shape of a ball when Maxima wears the necklace in this manner:
