Save when visiting the pope, we don't see any Catholic queen in mantilla. Nor is it very customary to walk around with rosary beeds. I highly doubt this will change for Maxima when Beatrix dies. It's not custom now a days.

Queen Máxima has been seen with a mantilla regularly. See this link.
Máxima and Letizia in mantilla: see picture.

A rosary is a help for praying the rosary indeed. It is not a bijou or an accessoire. In my humble opinion it makes no sense to walk around with a rosary when not actively praying all those Pater Nosters and Ave Marias... That is what all these beads are for... ;-)

Please remember that this thread is about Queen Maxima's jewels. There is no need to discuss religion here.

There were three female adult members of the royal family during the State Visit of King Abdullah of Jordan: Queen Beatrix, Princess Laurentien and Princess Margriet. Was Princess Máxima also in the country, then there would have been 4 adult members there.

The last time that there were so many bejewelled ladies from the Netherlands was of course the Farewell Banquet in the Rijksmuseum Amsterdam on April 29th 2013:

Princess Máxima bedecked in big diamonds (picture)

Princess Mabel with the sun-ray motif diamond diadem (picture)

Princess Laurentien with Princess Juliana's aquamarines (picture)

Princess Irene with the antique pearl diadem (picture)

Princess Margriet with the pearl buttons diadem (picture)

Princess Christina with the laurel wreath diadem (picture)

I can only remember the necklace being worn twice. At her hubbys 40th and a state visit to the mideast somewhere, but no tiara. It would be awesome with a green gown...or black!!!

I thought only the bracelet was worn in the Middle East.

The sapphire brooch looked a bit lost where it was worn but over all the queen's jewels were really stunning!

Such impressive Sapphire earrings they are divine.
I was surprised to see what many had assumed to be Maxima's diamond earrings on her sister-in-law - perhaps a loan for the day as the article notes.

A discussion in the Tiara & Jewels guessing thread set me off on a path where I compiled a list of all of the tiaras some of the ladies have worn for state (and official visits when called for) visits.

Here is Maxima's. Out of the royal ladies I did, Maxima certainly has the best access to multiple tiaras. It makes it interesting and generally never boring.

Queen Máxima surprised with a long not seen gold-silver collier with turquoises, pearls and diamonds which belonged to Queen Juliana (grandmother of her spouse, King Willem-Alexander). It has not been seen for 40 years.

Picture from PPE - the stones match perfectly with the turquoise colouring of the dress.

It looks art nouveau / Edwardian / Jugendstil jewelry to me (between 1910 and 1930).

I am surprised to see the necklace on Quen Maxima. It seemed one of those pieces that would have passed on to Queen Juliana's younger daughters. Princess Christina wore it once or twice IIRC. It is a nice enough necklace though the outfit doesn't do it justice.

Beautiful necklace. Wild be much better against something simpler like a black dress, where it could really shine.
