Isn't it the rose-cut bandeau on a higher frame? She may have borrowed the tiara from her mother, as she did with other jewels too. At the time she probably only owned the Aquamarine parure, aquamarines from Bernhard, the diamond roses and the sapphire parure of Queen Emma.

You might be right about the rose-cut bandeau, but I thought that this one looks higher, and we have never seen it on another frame before.

Yes, the bandeau with old rose-cut diamonds on a different monture:

(Click on the picture for XL) Note all ladies with opera gloves and the ostrich feathers. Those were the days. A night at the Opera...

The positioning of the bandeau is different, not the monture. It you look at modern side views of it being worn (for example by Máxima), you'll see the same curve visible as in the picture of young Princess Juliana.

BTW, there is not a single rose-cut diamond in this jewel, so I'm surprised that people still reffer to it as ''The (old) rose-cut diamond bandeau'', when it's cushion-cut diamonds that adorn it.

As long as I frequent these boards the term "the bandeau with rose-cut diamonds" is used. I have never realised if that name was correct or not. I have no idea what cut the stones are.

The frame indeed shows a flowing line: http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-dKYbuOIKc3...deau+Tiara.jpg

I guess that 'rose-cut' just sounds so very lovely. So the name sticks to the tiara like glue. But a rose-cut looks decidedly different, and much more boring.

The flowing line of the tiara frame is what make it just so perfect, imo. It's no wonder that Maxima has worn it so often.

I am impressed by the skills of Johann Eduard Schürmann & Co in Frankfurt, the creator of this parure in 1887. Like almost all Orange-Nassau jewels, also the versatility of this parure is ingenious.

Interesting picture. I think the necklace would also look nice if worn without the stiff upper part. Just the scroll elements and a centre piece. But I'm not sure it that is technically possible.

Queen Juliana and Queen Máxima wore the collier with the base on their dress' neckline. The stiff round base then corresponded with the round neckline. Princess Irene wore it on her skin. Then the removed base allows the collier to follow the ladies' contours. It is an ingenious piece.

It is interesting that in 1901 Johann Eduard Schürmann & Co was able to create such a fine piece of craftmanship, while only a few years earlier they created that bulky monstrosity, the Stuart Diadem, where any fine craftmanship, delicate settings and pleasing esthetics have been lost out of the eye. It is interesting that the very same jeweller can create such different eh... qualities in design.

Ah, thank you! I prefer that look, especially as it's worn on the skin. The version with the collar looks very stiff, imho.

Oh well. Doesn't that happen very often? Live is full of hits and misses. There are different people working on the designs, the customers order different styles, the designers have good days and not so good ones... The Stuart parure was created in order to dazzle by pure carat power. And that it does! I think we can agree on that.
