It is just incredible to see this site with all the photos, not only the history and who used it before but how the same piece it is use by different members of the family today!
just wonder how they do it? where are the jewelry? you see one piece use it by Maxima, Beatriz and may be one of their cousins, who take it in and out the jewelry to them and how they decide which one to use? I guess the family has a catalogue? it is just an amazing to use all this jewelry
with so much history!

Yes, it's a great site, but only one problem...

There should be a warning over there stating....

Please be aware if you love jewels and Royal History, ensure you are comfortable and have water and snacks nearby, as you will be kissing the rest of your Day Good Bye!!



I literally spent an entire afternoon and better part of an evening once going through that thing once. Maxima sure has an awful lot of pretty "toys" to play w/, doesn't she?

Queen Máxima keeps adding to her jewelry collection. Today (May 6th) she escorted the King to a visit in the East of the Netherlands and was spotted with new diamond-and-pearls earhangers.

I believe that the upper part has been worn during welcome ceremony for the Chinese president and his wife already, with different pearl drops. But I don't recall having seen them before that either.

Oh, be still, my heart. Those earrings are a hazard since they're causing heart palpitations and are in danger of stopping that very necessary organ!

On the modekoninginmaxima.nl blog they spotted new jewels again.... The amount of jewels at Queen Máxima's disposal is beyond belief. Today the Queen wore earrings, a brooch and a three strand bracelet with rose quartz gemstones, so to see set in gold. It was apparently a set which once belonged to Queen Juliana (1909-2004), the King's maternal grandmother.

Maxi wore this set alot about 3 or 4 years ago. She is so fun to follow with her jewels. I love it. Especially over the big chunky things she likes. The real jewels are better....right?

I never knew that these belonged to Juliana and thought they were a new acquisition. A(nother) nice surprise!

Say, Maxima, what does a girl have to do to be invited to your palace to play dress-up?
That being said, although I love to drool over rubies, I think I prefer Mary's or Camilla's. Or Queen Elizabeth's.

I love her so much. She needs to teach a course to anyone who marries into a royal family on how to have fun with the family vaults.

The Mellerio Parure was almost completely worn, Queen Máxima left the two brooches, the stunning corsage-de-devant with waterfall diamonds and also the diamond-and-rubies encrusted fan in the cassette.

On this picture you see Queen Juliana wearing the corsage-de-devant and one of the two brooches: http://i19.photobucket.com/albums/b1...eelding104.jpg

On this picture you see the fan which is part of the parure:

Those jewels are just formidable and the presentation simply smashing! Max should teach the Art of Wearing Royal Jewels 101 and its accompanying course, How to Raid the Royal Jewel Vaults.
