More info on the necklace that Máxima wore at the 60th birthday party of the PoW can be found here. Recently a picture was published in a book by Els Smit, showing a picture of princess Margriet wearing the necklace as a sort of bandeau. It looks very good that way too, as you can see in the link.

I really liked this necklace. It is so beautiful. It really looks modern to me. I was very surprised to learn that it is over 100 years old.

love the idea of wearing it as a tiara - itis a simple beautiful piece and i think it is best with the diamonds rather than another jewel in their place

Well, i have never seen some pictures in colour with pearls in it, or a good picture in colour with sapphires, but the simple diamond design seems the nicest one indeed. I would like it though if Máxima (or any other Dutch royal) would do as Queen Wilhelmina: add some diamonds or pear-shaped pearls below... Just to see how it looks.

BTW Máxima also wore 3 of the 5 diamond stars of her wedding diademe during the party for the PoW.

thank you so much! i am impress to see this this photos and to see how this jewellery or for the matter most of the jewellery that they have you can make so many changes, add pearls or stones or take them out, thestars from her wedding tieara as broches, this is marvellous. I wonder how they transport them i imagine luxuruois cases and in the hotel where they keep it not to be stolen??
i wonder what Maxima feels evrytime she use one of this marvellous pieces, being so old and with so much history!!!!!!

She would feel like a Princess of an old and wealthy Royal House.

How do you think Maxima travels with all those jewels? Do they always have a bodyguard with them? Surely there must be some extra special thing you must do when taking the royal jewels out of the country. Any ideas?????

In the Dutch calender it says that Maxima and W-A will make a visit to Oman in Jan. Is that the country where they always give gifts of jewels? Or are those days gone. I hope Maxima gets something fabulous!! Anyone have any info? Didn't Camilla get some sparklers from there lately?

I hope they won't give her any jewels (if they planned to), I guess it could raise questions at home to whom the jewels belong, to Maxima or to the state. And if it is ethical to accept such gifts; politicians can not accept anything above a very small amount of euros for example.

I didn't mean to offend anyone, I guess I was just remembering that the British royals have recieved some amazing gifts when they have visited certain countries. and I believe those gifts fall in to the personal catagory, as Princess Diana had. Sorry!!!

More on the butterfly brooch on John's excellent site: Insects

Last time Maxima wore a brooch of the emerald parure on the same place in the dress, look here;

Emerald Parure (2nd row below, pictures on the left).

The Emerald Parure is certainly beautiful!

I was surprised to see the Diamond & Citrine Jewelry - Diamond and Citrine Jeweelry But I suppose if the family name/colour is orange, it works.
