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!
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?

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.
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.
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.
