That's a stunning parure.
Pity Queen Beatrix never wore it, but I have high hopes for Maxima; she can pull of some pretty impressive jewellery - and this tiara is as impressive as it can go.

I do expect Maxima will wear it once she becomes Queen. She appears to have the presence, and the desire to wear large pieces of jewellery.

Dare I say it but maybe the reason that Queen Beatrix has never worn the Stuart-diamond tiara in her 32 years as Monarch is because it is not a particularly elegant or attractive jewel.

While the Stuart diamond is massive (along with a few of the others!), its setting at the front at the very peak gives the tiara the appearance of being ungainly and top-heavy. Added to that, in my eye there is a lack of artistry or finesse to the overall design and setting. I'd describe it as 'lumpen' and disappointing for what should by rights be the signature piece of the House of Orange.

1. The Stuart-Diamond Tiara
2. Queen Juliana wearing it

Apart from being not very elegant it must also be very heavy to wear. The same goes for the bow brooch of this parure, which contains some large diamonds (from Anna of Hanover?) too. IMHO if Máxima won't be able to wear the items either, they should break down (parts of) the parure to create a new one. It has been done several times before. There is no logic in letting the most important diamonds of the family collect dust for 4 decades. The Stuart diamond can be used as pendant for a necklace or perhaps as a brooch.

I'd agree with you there,it looks rather awkward and heavy.Perhaps breaking it up and making a smaller less heavy one might be possible,there are so many diamonds on it!

You could check here to see if there are any pieces you missed. Several of the Dutch jewels can be worn in different variations making the collection seem even larger.

Maxima wore the necklace at the wedding of Martha-Louise in Trondheim, but the sapphire's were replaced by diamonds. Queen Beatrix never wore the necklace.

Now, what do you think Dame Edna would be more jealous of, the jewels or the glasses?
