That Antique Pearl Diadem is nice but the absolute eyecatcher was the devant-de-corsage from Tsarina Maria Feodorovna with the pearshaped pearl pendants.

Tsarina Maria Feodorovna was the mother of Queen Anna Pavlovna of the Netherlands, but the corsage came in the Orange-Nassau collection via Anna's sister Queen Catharina Pavlovna of Wrttemberg. Anna's son Willem III would marry Catharina's daughter Sophie (a marriage of two full cousins indeed).

This is the way:

Tsarina Maria Feodorovna of Russia born Sophia Dorothea Augusta Louisa Herzogin von Wrttemberg
Knigin Catharina von Wrttemberg born Catharina Pavlovna Romanova, Grand-Princess of Russia
Koningin Sophie der Nederlanden, Prinses van Oranje-Nassau born Sophia Friederike Mathilde Prinzessin von Wrttemberg
Koningin Wilhelmina Helena Pauline Maria der Nederlanden, Prinses van Oranje-Nassau
Koningin Juliana Emma Louise Marie Wilhelmina der Nederlanden, Prinses van Oranje-Nassau
Placed into the legal ownership of (a Foundation of) the House Orange-Nassau

See Tsarina Maria Feodorovna's corsage:

I like both pieces a lot. The tiara is one of the more succesful designs of the Dutch collection IMO, elegant simplicity in the design and the large size of the pearls give it a less spiky / more harmonious feeling than some other tiara's with prongs in the collection. The history of this piece is rather interesting too: it was supposedlymade for Queen Wilhelmina & inspired by a tiara that belonged to Queen Anna Pavlovna and four of the pearls supposedly still belonged to Amalia of Solms!

And it is indeed wonderful to see the corsage in its entire form again. It works best on a simple dress like this one, where the dress is not competing with the jewel for attention.

Perfect combination with Queen Maxima's gown last night worked so perfectly together.

There's no doubt that when Maxima gets it right, no one does it better than she does. She really does carry off the jewels that would overwhelm another woman.

Its nice to see the Antique Tiara again Its just the second time she wore it since becoming Queen in 2014. The brooch looks stunning. She is born to wear big jewels.

what a treat. I would love to see a good picture of the devant de corsage. She looks absolutely perfectly royal, not celebrity. Perfect hair, makeup , tiara, earrings and dress with wonderful corsage. Best appearance.
