The emeralds from the set are very old and are in the collection of the House Orange-Nassau since 1767 (!). These emeralds come from Princess Wilhelmina of Orange-Nassau née Princess of Prussia (1751-1820), spouse of Prince Willem V, the Stadtholder of the United Provinces. Back then the original set had 33 emeralds of supreme quality and colour. This was described in an inventory of Princess Wilhelmina's belongings: the prize of supreme quality emeralds can be higher than Burmese rubies or even high quality diamonds!

In 1790 Princess Wilhelmina gave her emeralds as a gift to her daughter Princess Louise of Orange-Nassau, for her wedding to Karl, Duke of Braunschweig-Wolfenbüttel. The couple got no children. Princess Louise died in 1819 and so her mother Princess Wilhelmina -who outlived her daughter- got the emeralds back.

After the death of Princess Wilhelmina, these emeralds came in the possession of her son Willem I, King of the Netherlands, Grand-Duke of Luxembourg. Also the large cabochon-cut green emerald -with the purest quality and therefore with a great value- comes from Princess Wilhelmina.

Today's appearance of the Emerald Parure stems from 1889, the original ancient emeralds were used for today's set. Made more than 125 years ago but still looking surprisingly modern. Maybe a bit too modern for the ancient emeralds which were already worn by ladies in the 18th C?

I can't remember a time when I wasn't scared to death of spiders. When I saw the picture of Maxima with the two spiders on her shoulder it sent cold chills up my spine. I don't care if they are diamond spiders, they are just totally creepy.

I think, that neither the earrings nor the diamonds are "real" stones....
Looks more like costume jewellery to me

It's no secret that Queen Maxima is a colorful lady and her jewellery can be spectacular as well.

Queen Maxima ones again displays her pleasure in modern gold jewelry at the Rotterdam International Film Festival.

Although I'm a fan of historical jewels I think that she looks just great with these. And it matches with that extravagant pattern of her jumpsuit.
