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!
When you mention a stomacher with originally a sapphire do you mean the one she wore in February post #245



or this is another one (in which case, lucky lucky Queen)

It is another one. It is a devant-de-corsage given by King Willem III of the Netherlands to his fiancée Princess Emma von Waldeck und Pyrmont (1878). The original setting contains a large round sapphire surrounded by circles of old diamonds and with a large sapphire pendant. Queen Máxima wore this devant-de-corsage without the sapphires. The large central sapphire was replaced by a large orange stone, possibly a citrine.

Picture from ANP Historisch Archief:
Princess Juliana with the diamonds-and-pearls devant-de-corsage (as worn by Queen Máxima, last week) and Queen Beatrix with the large diamonds-and-sapphires devant-de-corsage but without the pendants.

The sheer size of the diamonds in the bandeau, the earhangers, the stomacher... it is just beyond belief. Amazing. Thank you for this great picture!

Is there any possibility that this large orange stone is an orange diamond?

I believe the only orange diamond is in Queen Máxima's engagement ring. Orange diamonds, especially with the size of the centre stone in that stomacher, are extremely expensive. The general opinion is that it are citrines.

Picture from modekoninginmaxima.nl: the engagement ring (with orange diamond) and the wedding ring which is very simple: a band of white gold. As is the catholic use, the Queen wears her wedding ring at her left hand. The other hand shows the ring to commemorate the birth of Princess Ariane, the Queen's youngest daughter.

I absolutely love Maxima's tiara, it's the perfect size - not too small or too big. However I have to say that I'm not a huge fan of the brooch, it's nice but it's not really my cup of tea.

I had mixed feelings on the stomacher brooch at first glance,but I must say I do like it and Maxima wears it well.

That stomacher/brooch is certainly an imposing piece and as always Maxima carries it well. That's not the type of jewel that everyone can wear with such panache. The tiara and earrings are.....well, what other superlative can you use with diamonds of those size other than the usual "magnificent, dazzling, jaw-dropping, amazing, stunning, breathtaking......." I've run out of adjectives at this point!

Thanks, Duc. If the DRF can't afford a big orange diamond, I guess I had better be happy with a citrine myself. I did look at some very nice orange stones on ebay- what an amazing variety of shades they come in.
