The necklace is from Dutch designer Pauline Wiertz and is called 'Feeding the Birds'. The necklace costs 1500 euros and can be bought at Inez Stobel's art gallery on the Spiegelgracht here in Amsterdam.

A close up:

It seems she shops more often in the neighbourhood, as she acquired these antique earrings from Zeeland at Dekker Antiquairs:

On her first day in Denmark, Queen Maxima wears her new sapphire earrings and a big sapphire brooch:

Note that the brooch that is photoshopped into the picture is not the brooch that HM is wearing.

A few corrections

Hey there, Erik Schoonhoven here.
A few corrections on the posts above:
- the antique Dutch earrings were not bought from Dekker Antiquairs directly, but they do come from the collection of antique Dutch jewellery they currently sell and which you can see here (including earrings very similar to those of Queen Maxima: Juwelen - Dekker Antiquairs
An example of how these earrings were worn back in the old days, can be found on my website: Queen Máxima's Dutch Earrings » Erik Schoonhoven's website
- Queen Maxima today indeed wore the brooch that is photoshopped in the picture, but because of the angle of the photo, this isn't visible.

Thanks for the corrections! You are obviously right on both accounts.

It is indeed Q. Emma's -oval- sapphire pendant today:

Ha welcome, great to have a jewelry expert on our forum!



The Queen wears the diadem from the Grand Sapphire Parure, with the central aigrette back on top, diamond-and-sapphire bijoux and diamond bracelets. All this in combination with the same dress as worn during the Investiture but without cape (naked shoulders).

Saw it in Danish TV2.

The diadem is worn in a larger version, the middle aigrette with large central sapphire is back on top:

April 30th 2013: a large round diamond instead of the middle aigrette (resulting in a round bridge flow)

Tonight: with middle aigrette, making the diadem more "gothic" (resulting in a more pointy bridge flow)

What a nice surprise from the queen. After the Stuart the sapphires are the next best thing (IMHO). Good to see that it can still be used in full setting. The brooch is another little surprise.

Stunning jewels! I was not expecting she would wear this tiara, but what a great surprise. The tiara is magnificent.

Wow, that brooche is to take the breath away! I can imagine how heavy it is, though I like it more in the coronation with the bow! and I am sure it is not easy to hold that heavy tiara! a long way from that shy little girl from Argentina! she looks superb! good for her!

When Máxima was not married yet, she wore the large sapphire pendant in combination with a diamond bow (Government's Banquet on the eve of the wedding).

On Investiture Day she repeated it in this setting, see this clear picture.

She did as we expected, didn't she ? Maxima knows perfectly how to use the jewels. It was amazing to see the glitter of the diamond riviere on video. The design is so simple but very effective.
