Oh, Max what happened? If you are going to bring out the Big Guns then you have to supply the ammunition. A really fabulous updo, tiara on straight, a fabulous Gala Gown (think Victoria in the red Nobel gown), think of a palate to paint the jewels on. A fabulous brooch on the shoulder, another at the waist, bracelets on your wrists and in the back of your updo a la Queen Silvia.

Instead, you wore a nice enough little evening gown that screamed: "I want to fade into the wallpaper tonight". Ant the big gun whimpered! That's what you wear to a nice little dinner or formal family birthday party, not the Diplomatic Corps Reception!

Has anyone checked her temperature?

Personally, I don't think the issue was the gown, it was the hairstyle. The hairstyle was just not suitable for such a large and imposing tiara.

The Mellerio Ruby Parure looks fantastic with this red dress.
Even though Maxima's hair can sometimes look disastrous during the daytime events, for the evening she usually delivers. Love her soft updo and it goes well with the tiara.

Is this the complete parure?

I like it very much too.
Only with the side parted hair, it gives the impression that the tiara is not standing straight on her head.

No it is not, the stomacher is sadly missing in action. It could actually have worked on this dress, without a sash.

Is that a new pair of pearl and diamond earrings that Queen Máxima is wearing at the inauguration of the National Monument MH17 at the Park Vijfhuizen on 17 July?

No, that is her personal white pearl set, consisting of earrings and a necklace. She has the same set in Tahiti-pearls as well. Both she has worn since 2002.

I really hope the mellerio Ruby Tiara will stay in the Vault for a couple of years.. she has so many Tiaras she could wear in different ways but still she always choose the same :(

Her two top choices seem to be the Mellerio Ruby and Queen Emma's sapphire tiara. I wish she would wear the Dutch emerald tiara more often, maybe on the state visit to Portugal.

It has been one of the few successful transformations of a necklace into a tiara IMHO. Still, I would love to see it as a necklace one day.

One of my most favourite jewellery pieces.

Maxima wears it the best and my favourite (and I think the only time) she wore it is at QMII's birthday celebration in 2010: https://4.bp.blogspot.com/-nPL7lgaf8...sapphire04.png

Actually I prefer it as a tiara, especially since the small diamond shaped elements from Queen Emma's sapphire parure have been added to the tiara. I wonder if the necklace is now fixed on the tiara frame or if it is now one of these lego-jewels that easily come apart again.
