My guess is cabouchon sapphires. It could be a trick of the light that the clasp looks so dark while the light gets caught in the earring. And it's not the Queen's style to mix different stones, imo.

Beatrix wore the star version of the Pearl Button tiara for the first time recently:

Here are more pictures from PPE of Beatrix wearing the star tiara. Imo the tiara looked great on Princess Beatrix, this is a tiara that suits her hairstyle. It is interesting that the tiara was reserved for Maxima while being a princess. Now that she is the Queen, both Margriet and Beatrix have worn it.

This tiara really does suit Princess Beatrix and unlike others doesn't get lost in her hairdo!

I find it hard to imagine those ladies to pull out each other's freshly done tiara hair because they all want to wear the same tiara! And with such a variety of jewels it should be easy to come to peaceful agreements. After all they are no teenagers anymore. But who knows what happens when the A-team one day will start wearing those tiaras?

I agree, I thought it suited her well.

I think she looks magnificent in the Star tiara. To be honest, I thought their big gun sapphire was a bit of a fizzer because it just had a big one in the middle of a whole lot of diamonds. That'll happen if you are wearing Bea's trademark bouffant hairstyle.

Beatrix has a grace and deportment that belies her (supposedly) lesser role and because of this she remains one of my favourite people. From the beginning she shared her jewellery with Max and these days goes out of her way to show she is "Princess Beatrix" once again.

Instead of diminishing her in any way, it makes her even more spectacular when she dusts off those magnificent Stars and goes large!

Kind of like "The Unsinkable Molly Brown".

Yes it is quite elegant but it has more or less become a Dutch Royal Wedding tiara of late!

Imo the laurel tiara is very beautiful and it is a pity that it has never been worn by Maxima. But it seems to be set aside as a loaner for the tier royals: Princess Christina has worn it at the pre-inauguration festivities, Princess Maria-Carolina has worn it at her wedding and at the wedding of GF of Prussia and Sophie of Isenburg, Princess Laurentien has worn it at her own wedding and at the State Visit from Jordan...

Just out of curiosity has Maxima ever worn the laurel wreath tiara?

Not that I am aware of it.

Recently, whilst in Canada, she did wear some hair clips that could have been from the tiara, but some posters held the view that they were different, and not from the tiara.

The ears-of-wheat's she wore in Canada where believed to be from the Ears-of-wehat tiara not the laurel-wreath tiara. Doubt it is possible to remove parts from the laurel-wreath tiara.

No, Maxima hasn't worn this laurel tiara.

Muriel, you are mixing up the laurel tiara with the ears-of-wheat tiara. That is another tiara which has a history of wedding tiara (all the van Vollenhoven princesses have worn it). But this tiara has never been worn by neither Beatrix nor Maxima.

Edit: You beat me, Stefan
I agree with you. The laurel tiara does not look as if parts can be taken off.

Actually the laurel-wreath tiara reminds of the luxemburgian laurel-wreath tiara with the blue-sapphire in the center. A pitiy that it is worn so seldom.

The laurel tiara was the 18th birthday tiara of Princes Beatrix. Maybe it will also become Princes Amalia's 18th birthday tiara? That would be a very nice touch!

You are both absolutely right, I stand corrected!
