It is so great she brought back this lovely necklace. I wish she had worn this necklace with the Tiara at the state visit from Belgium instead the Ruby Tiara ..

That would have been nice too, but Queen Máxima choose for another diadem with matching necklace: http://scontent.cdninstagram.com/t51...Y5OA%3D%3D.2.c

I think the Mellerio Parure is probably more important than the Peacock Parure (in carat power it undoubtedly is). In the end Queen Máxima would have worn fantastic jewels, be it of ruby parure A or ruby parure B. What a luxury to have that choice...

In both ruby parures the quality of the stones and the carat power is beyond belief. No little fillegrain beads to fill a monture but real diamonds, every one big enough to be an engagement ring. I saw this diadem on TV during a visit to one of the Gulf states and the sparkle was magic. Queen Máxima is lucky to have the Orange-Nassau cassettes with sparkling jewels at her disposal! I would like to see the other ruby parure (Mellerio) in complete setting once, with the huge devant de corsage and the diamonds-and-rubies encrusted fan... ;-)

I never cease to be amazed at the jewels Queen Maxima wears and to see them in their historical context - as worn by Queen Juliana for instance - as well as today.

That collier looks sparkling and modern, but it is 116 years old. It was a gift from the Dowager Queen Emma to her daughter Queen Wilhelmina for her marriage to Heinrich, Duke of Mecklenburg-Schwerin, in 1901.

Thanks- I assumed it was from the marvelous Dutch jewel vaults, but it does indeed look very modern.

Me too! The peacock tiara is one of my favourite Dutch tiaras, while the Mellerio bores me a bit.

That necklace is very high on my list of favourites, but imo this outfit does not show it to advantage.

Yes, one of my favorites. It is called their Diamond Honey Comb necklace. The middle row contains the larger diamonds which can be replaced with Sapphires, Pearls, etc. Princess Irene favored wearing with pearls and have seen photos of Queen Juliana and Queen Beatrix wearing with the Sapphires. Princess Margriet wore once in hair which gave a tiara type look. The only time I didn't admire was when Queen Wilhelmina attached additional pendants of large drop pears and diamonds. I thought took away the simple grandeur of the necklace. JMO

We have seen Queen Máxima in the diamond floral motif diadem of Queen Emma: http://hbznl.h-cdn.co/assets/16/45/9...-621562718.jpg

Without the stars on top. Also Queen Beatrix has never worn it with stars on top. I only know it with stately portraits depicting Queen Wilhelmina.

But here on this picture it can be seem in action, worn in the royal loge during a concert. It looks better than I imagined. Click on the picture self to blow up to XL: http://www.geheugenvannederland.nl/n...12YXJpYWJsZQ==

Queen Wilhelmina once attached pearshaped pearl pendants to this trellis necklace, in combination with the Antique Pearl Diadem. I must say it looked quite impressive and absolutely an option for Queen Máxima to dazzle...

I am a Nostalgic of the Queens of the Past with their grand jewels without such a lot of make up.

To my idea all Queens wore lots of make-up, but in the black-white and analogue era cameras did not have that millions mega-pixel sharpness of these days...

Queen Wilhelmina certainly did not wear (much) make-up. And neither did princess Juliana before her marriage to Bernhard. Once princess Juliana -already an adult- had to appear on film, to request money for the national crisis comitee. It was suggested by the people resonsible for the recording that she would wear some make-up. Queen Wilhelmina refused and told them: "The princess will appear how God and I created her". And so she did...

Anyway, back to the diamond tiara: I find it an odd combination, flowers and stars. But I would love to see them together once to see take a better look.

All royal ladies used make-up, lipstick, powder. Think about Versailles, about Tudor times, the Romans... Think about the Chinese, Japanese and Persian ladies, covering their faces under make-up...

In this day, on more dressed-up events we see all ladies with heavy make-up. Seems normal to me: wearing evening toilet and sparkling jewels simply requires colour in the face, I think.

On another note: which tiara is (then) Princess Juliana wearing here? It looks somehow like the laurel wreath tiara, but can that be? For all we knew, it wasn't seen worn by anybody before Princess Beatrix started to wear it.
