I'm glad to see that she had the top portion of her hairstyle "bumped" up and not combed back close to her head. IMO these older pieces require a hairstyle with a lift and not a flat one.

Maxima looks very lovely tonight.

Yes, but Princess Beatrix wore it in full version, with 11 upright pearls on top: http://fast.mediamatic.nl/f/tqgr/ima...54-696-800.jpg

The Württemberg Tiara looked majestic on H.M.Queen Maxima last night and to honest I prefer it without the upright pearls.

It depends on the hairdo. For her last banquet as Queen, Beatrix wore it with 5 instead of 11 upright pearls and I liked it, but probably I would like it more with all the 11 pearls: http://www1.pictures.zimbio.com/bg/Q...tbp3jVji4x.jpg

I agree, it looks good with the six lower spikes, and I hope that Queen Maxima will explore all the possibilities of this tiara.

What an interesting history the Württemberg tiara has & its full form looks to be quite 'crown' like.

The diadem is 175 years old and was made for Queen Máxima's far predecessor Queen Sophie of the Netherlands born Princess of Württemberg (1818-1877). I love it that the Oranges are so careful with their jewels. They not only have an extended collection, some diadems are old, some gems or pearls are even extremely old. The oldest diamonds and pearls in the Orange-Nassau collection were already purchased by Frederik Hendrik of Nassau, Prince of Orange (1584-1647), meaning more than 400 years (!) in the ownership of the same family...

I hoped that she would wear this tiara, but now she did it is disappointing. It just seems off. Maybe it is the dots in the dress combined with the pearl (dots) on the tiara. Maybe it is the a-symetric hairstyle, maybe it is the color clash of the pearls with the gold or maybe it is because the tiara is tilted. It seems enormous though, with Beatrix half of it usually disappeared. Still, I am happy she used it and hope for a more succesful use soon. I am unconvinced about the brooch, the old version looked much better,as it is it seems unbalanced (as it did with Laurentien in 2013).

All royal residences have so-called "silver chambers" where all valuables are stored, not only jewels but also the gold-, silver and crystalware, amongst these HUGE items like man-sized candelabras or vases which are already worth a fortune by the weight in precious metals alone. The Dutch jewels were always maintained by a Court Jeweller. For decades this is Steltman Jewellers in The Hague but for reglar maintenance (not only jewels, but also the countless horloges, pendules, music boxes, miniatures, etc.) there is an atelier at Noordeinde Palace itself. More complicated maintenance and services are done at Steltman jewellers.

Pic: one of the Silver Chambers of Het Lange Voorhout Palace in The Hague. The palace was sold in 1991 and now houses a museum. The original Silver Chamber displays some pieces but in reality it was crammed with hundreds of boxes with cutlery, candles, candelabras, plates, etc.
