Oh, bazinga! Maxima delights us jewel-a-loonies with the appearance of these luscious, massive pieces while enjoying the benefit of wearing them with her usual panache and style. She has not shirked from her responsibilities as Queen of the Magpies by any means at all and will certainly continue to hold us all in thrall.

Just thank you thank you Max, I especially love the aigrette and fab dangling diamond earrings. The pearl tiara and stomacher, just wonderful she's wearing all of it. And, it that the same diamond bracelet? With the red gown and then again with the pale pink gown?

The stomacher was very impressive. You don't see royal ladies wearing large jewels like that these days.

Well said Baroness,Queen Maxima manages to wear them all so effortlessly regal and without looking gaudy.

Not too keen on the insect brooches but Maxima's emeralds are simply quite stunning!

So interesting to read about the jewelry, especially thebig pearl surrounded by diamonds that is now in a diamond bracelet. It was in a less spectacular bracelet for years, and Max has worn it as a pendant. Just love to have the jewels out and about!

Today Queen Máxima wore the wonderful bandeau with the old large rose-cut diamonds. The Queen surprised by wearing a large diamond stomacher with an orange (citrine?) centrestone.

From Reuters - an aerial view from the banquet in the Royal Palace Amsterdam (click once again on the picture to expand):

From Reuters - a great view on the jewelry of both Queens (click once again on the picture to expand):

From Reuters - also Princess Beatrix did attend, all diamonds (click once again on the picture to expand):

She looked absolutely stunning!
That stomacher is originally with a big sapphire in the centre but she changed it ideed to a citrine (probably from her own collection). Then Queen Beatrix wore it once like 30 years ago, can even be more than 30 years ago.
Queen Máxima keeps surprising us with her jewels during such baquets! (she's just wearing some stomachers that haven't been seen for like 30 years if it just are small brooches)
We are -as jewel-loving royal fans- very lucky to have such a Queen in the Netherlands!
