Wonderful surprise! I would agree that it is Art Noveau but would put it before WWI. Can anyone post a picture of it worn by queen Juliana or others? It is interesting that this piece is known to the others in the thread.

What a wonderful surprise! And also that other posters remember this necklace! Does anyone have a picture of Queen Juliana or others wearing it? I would agree it is Art Noveau style and would date it before WWI

The site modekoninginmaxima has a picture of Princess Christina (aunt of the King) and Queen Juliana (grandmother of the King) wearing the necklace. The last outing was in 1975, since then it has collected dust in the cassette.

In Dutch media is rumoured that probably Queen Máxima wanted to make a statement by wearing a collier attached to the grandmother the King loved so much. This because last week there was negative publicity around Queen Juliana and Prince Bernhard thanks to a biography about them and rumours that there would have been secret tax arrangements made around 1970-1972.

Thank you for the images, Duc. That is some feathery dress Queen Juliana is wearing.
Good for Maxima to out the jewelry, whatever the reason.

Very good to see Max use her emerald brooch as a pendant in Australia today. More interestingly, the brooch was attached to a collet collier, as opposed to the emerald znd diamond necklace from the Dutch collection.

It is the first time that I can recall that the emerald brooch & pendant were paired with a riviere. A fortunate choice, esp. as the original emeral necklace seems a little too short and uncomfortable for the wearer.

I am glad Queen Máxima is fond of the emerald drop. I don't recall Q. Beatrix ever wearing it.

Queen Máxima wore an orange necklace today (picture).

At Natan, her favourite sartorial purveyor, this necklace is also in other (more pleasing) colours: Picture

In orange it is indeed. The other colours are better, but I prefer more traditional bijoux on a Queen.

It's not just the color. The necklace is just hideous. Brown looks like a porcupine and blue one is even worse than orange.

She needs to stick to real pieces. Her costume pieces really are hit and miss

It are no costume pieces in my humble opinion. After all: you see what you get. Just an orange thing made from unkown materials. It does not pretend to be anything else than that.

Costume pieces are what we can see in the series Victoria: fake diadems, fake colliers, fake breast stars. These pieces pretend to be diamonds but it simply are beads.

Not this discussion again look up the definition. You will find costume jewelry doesnt simply refer to fake jewels. It refers to any jewelry that isn't made from precious materials. Items like plastic and enamel and other materials, wood.

You don't have to like me using the term this way, that's fine, don't have to. But No correction needed

Cheers

It's also been referred to as a lobster, if memory serves me correctly! I actually like the idea of the necklace been worn in that way with various shaped "beads" etc. But having now seen other colour versions of it, I thing the black one looks the best!
