Beatrix has never worn the Stuart (or Holland) diamond tiara?? It is a shame since it is such a grand piece.

I know it's not fun having a headache, but you would think it would be a small price to pay on her part, if it brought pleasure to so many people to see her wear it once or twice. Maybe there's another reason why she has never worn it.

The tiara hasn't been seen since the early 70-ties when Juliana wore it for the last time (I believe on her state visit to the UK, though I am not sure).

Some posters on the message boards suggested that Beatrix never wore it while her mother was alive, to honour her mother as head of the family, but I doubt that.

Beatrix has a lot of migraine attacks, according to her son in an interview they gave in the 80-ties (the bigger the headache, the bigger the smile he commented), so I assume these diamonds are to heavy. Given her distaste for necklaces (and heavy jewelry in general), making it a necklace wan't an option either. Like with the other jewels which are collecting dust in the vaults, gfor this set we have to put our hopes on Maxima as well (though she can never wear it while Beatrix is still reigning), and assume the piece isn't sold.

From Ursula's magnificent site (and Corbis):

Queen Juliana wearing the Mellerio Ruby Parure tiara. The strings of the tiara cause optimal movement to the diamonds so that it does glitz in the extreme.

Queen Juliana loved this tiara and wore it often, she wore also the necklace together with the stomacher as a small parure without tiara

Here a link to Ursula's site with a magnificent colour picture of Juliana wearing the crown-parure with the bracelet of the dutch indies. She changed the tiara of the crownparure for the diamond bandeau.

Check out the site btw, it is magnificent!

Juliana's jewelry just looked incredible!
The huge parures looked so good on her! Actually I cannot imagine Maxima wearing them once...
It's a shame that Beatrix cannot wear those stunning pieces (her headache problem)..

And again from Het Geheugen van Nederland - Geschiedenis van Nederland in illustraties, foto's, teksten, films en audio (and free of copyrights), Juliana strikes a rather regal pose. It seems she is wearing the diamond bandeau:

Well, good people, I stand by my earlier unkind comments about the jewels of the House of Orange Nassau. Some of them are of course magnificent and others should be taken apart and start over. I for one have always been enormously fond of the Stuart parure which is massive, magnificent and wonderful. Queen Mary would have loved it. I think it regrettable that it is not now worn but others are sheer horrors. That Queen Emma sapphire thingamajig is just simply horrible. Then there is the emerald thing with that rock sticking out of the top. and the poor seven story toy of Queen Wilhelmina. It is amazing. Put Queen Elizabeth and her elegance up against most of the jewels and they just fade away. Which is such a pity as many of the gems themselves are magnificent. I hate to be the party poorper and rain on everybody's parade. But I guess the heat has gone to the feeble remnants of my brain and stewed them. Cheers.

Thomas, I have to disagree with you on this one- I like the sapphire parure! It is very queenly. But that emerald thing is...yuck. Who wants an emerald antenna sticking out of their head?

Most Noble Lady K,

I have looked again at the sapphire thingie and as much as I do love sapphires I cannot find this present presentation agreeable. Nor do I care for the Mellerio parurue. Maybe it is those glasses after all. As for the emerald tiara, the gemstones, particularly the emeralds are simply wonderful but the design is just lacking.

The Stuart parure is simply magnificent. As are other setting in the Dutch Royal Jewels but at best that collection is definately a mixed bag of tricks. But then QEII's sapphire tiara is at best a mediocre realization. One true marvel involving, however subtly, the use of sapphires is the Glouchester Indian tiara which a realization in the Indian style of pearls, diamonds and sapphire accents. Lovely indeed. Cheers.

According to the magazine 'Royalty' the Stuart poarure made from the 'housediamonds' of the Orange-Nassau's (both from the Frisian as the Orange-branch in the 17th century) contains over 900 smaller and 51 bigger diamonds. Sigh, what a waste as they have been collecting dust for decades!

I think that most of the jewels belong to the foundation of the orange jewels, and the queen has the first pick, then the CPss and then the princesses, according to rank. I personally think that specific tiaras should be for specific members of the royal family. For instance, I think that it was unfair of Maxima to wear Princess Mabel's wedding tiara on an occasion where she was present, I think that Mabel should (like the Danish princesses for instance) be able to wear this tiara for her lifetime, and give it back on the occasion of divorce or death. They all seem to wear the smae earrings, brooches and necklaces on different occasions, which takes away the uniqueness of it all.
BTW Queen Juliana had a regality uncommon in royals of today! QEII, QMargerethe, and maybe QSophia of Spain can compare, the rest are quite in her shadow, I am noat saying they are not beautiful, noble looking etc. but there is something she had, which they don't Ahh, the magic of royalty!

But Máxima has worn Mabel's Wedding tiara only 2 times. At an official Visit in 2006 and at the Diamond Jubilee in Thailand. On both occasions mabel was not present.
I don't think we will see mabel often wearing a tara as she is no member of the Royal Hpouse she will not participate in State Functions in the Netherlands and there are no other tiara-occasions in the Netherlands. And i don't except her to attend many Events in the scandinavian Monarchies (where tiaras are worn for this sort of bashes) either. I think it is nice that the Dutch royal ladies share their tiaras so we see them not agan and again and again in the same tiara like we do with Mary and Mette-Marit. The spanish Ladies do the same but there the big tiaras are reserved for the Queen.

Marengo,

Is that Baudoin, Albert & Paola of Belgium with Beatrix and her mother Juliana?

Paola looks a little bit like Mathilde in this pic.

Cheers and Thank you.

Here another picture of Juliana witht he same tiara, the necklace is also part of the parure. The enormous bracelet was a gift of the Dutch Indies to Juliana upon her wedding. The bow-brooch might be suitable for Mabel

The image originally come from www.hetgeheugenvannederland.nl
