Marianne was so kind to post this image at the GREMB, and I will post it here, the grandest parure in the posession of the house of Orange-Nassau. The present Queen never wore the tiara. The big diamond on top is called the Stuart diamond or Holland diamond and was a gift of Stadholder Willem III (King Willem III of GB) to his wife, Queen Mary II .

Since it's not worn nowadays it's hard to find a good picture of the Stuart, or Holland, diamond tiara. Here's a small pic, courtesy Corbis. The Stuart diamond is huge.

The diamond is huge! What a pity Beatrix never wore it (she gets headaches fromthe weight of tiara's), I hope they still own it.

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

Here a picture of Juliana with Queen Emma's sapphire parure & the bracelet of the Dutch Indies (from the same site):



I believe Juliana wore the necklace as a tiara once. Beatrix never wore the necklace, and the brooch only once or twice. Note that after her wedding to Bernhard Juliana starts wearing earrings. Before that she usually didn't as he mother, Queen Wilhelmina considered it 'to Hollywood'.

Thanks Warren, the tiara reminds me a bit of a gothic catherdral actually. The bracelets Juliana is wearing on your first picture were a part of the Amsterdam-parure, a gift from the city of Amsterdam to Wilhelmina (the tiara and necklace were broken up and used to make earrings and brooches for her 4 granddaughters). The pendant Juliana is wearing on the 2nd picture is usually used as a brooch by the present Queen.

Now more 'Stuart glitter' when the Windsor claimant came on a statevisit in 1959:









And here Juliana is wearing the rose-cut diamond bandeau (whih dates back to the times of the stadholders as well) and a necklace which was a gift of King Willem III, to his daughter, Queen Wilhelmina. Maxima wore this necklace as a tiara twice. Beatrix wore this necklace only once or twice during her reign. I remember seeing it during her british statevisit, accompanied by the Wurttemburg pearl diademe. Pay attention to the shower of Diamond stars (which continued on her back) and the enormous brooch, which was a weddinggift to Queen Emma. The bracelet of the Dutch Indies is showing as well.



Now, the belgian king could also count on some dressing up, the same jewels as on the above picture. Irene is wearring parts of her Peacock-Ruby parure and Beatrix wears the Aquamarine parure, which was a gift to Juliana by her parents, Queen Wilhelmina and Prince Hendrik (born Duke of Mecklenburg-Schwerin) for her 18th birthday.



--

I am hoping Maxima can take the dust of many of these jewels again, as the present Queen seems to live under the impression that 'less is more'.

Another pic of the elusive Stuart Diamond Tiara (New Crown Parure) in an effort to show the tiara's massive size. Cropped from a larger photo, courtesy Corbis.

Here a good view on the Melliero Ruby parure, originally made for Queen Emma (and the original plan was to use spaahire's instead of Rubies). Laurentien recently wore the necklace, Maxima has worn the smaller brooch once. The present Queen never used the necklace or the devant corsage (big brooch in front).

Juliana wearring the ears of wheat tiara (only 6 of the 10 ears) and a nice necklace, originally made for Queen Wilhelmina. This necklace was worn as circlet on the head once, at an engagement in the US, attended by Eleonor Roosevelt (not a succes IMO). 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?

Now, a couple of pictures of Juliana's daughter Irene. She didn't wear that many jewels, so an entire thread for her would be a waste. On the first picture she is wearring a tiara from the Bourbon-Parma family (which was stolen) and the necklace & pendant were a loan from her mother.

Both pictures from corbis



On this picture she is wearring the Peackock Ruby parure, which was a gift from Queen Wilhelmina, before they put the jewels in a foundation. I fear the worst for this parure, as it hasn't been seen since the 70-ties and even Irene's daughter didn't wear it during her wedding. The necklace was worn by Juliana during her enthornement.

In a couple of posts I referred to the broken up Amsterdam parure, here two pictures of a young & beautiful Queen Wilhelmina wearing it. The set was a gift of the city of Amsterdam to the Queen (I believe for her enthronement, she got the golden state carriage from the city for her wedding -or the other way around). The design isn't a winner, but a poster on the Benelux royals MB recently showed that if you leave the top part of, the tiara would have been very nice indeed. Juliana never wore this, though she and Beatrix frequently wore the bracelets (see post 10 by Warren). With the stones they made a number of earrings and brooches for the 4 granddaughters of Wilhelmina.





copyright has expired on these two pictures.

Wow! WOW!!:) Marengo & Warren - what a treat you both have given us today with all these pictures & background info on Juliana's (& Irene's) jewels! I think you two could write a book on the subject! Thank you!

Ps. Marengo - I love your comment about Juliana's Dame Edna glasses - you gave me the best laugh of the day!
