I believe these earrings date back to her engagement 18 years ago and were from the jeweller Harry Winston in New York City.

I think that Máxima has made a mistake with her jewelry on this visit.

Yesterday was the important event, the historic event where she should have worn the important family jewels like Queen Elizabeth and Queen Letizia did. Both queens wore earrings of large diamonds that had belonged to Queen Mary and Queen Victoria Eugenia ... while Maxima wore some modern stones that did not match the historical importance of the event.

Today at Ascot, which is a more relaxed event, without that historical importance ... she wears the Stuart earrings and a diamond bracelet, when all the ladies of the British Royal Family wear simpler jewelry.

Oh well, Queen Maxima's "Christmas Tree" dressing is normal. At least her smiles are very beautiful. To me, the earrings are too much for Royal Ascot and would only suit a royal wedding or a coronation or a grand evening event. As well, I don't think I've ever seen that bracelet before. Is it an Orange Foundation one or one of Queen Maxima's personal collection pieces?

Perhaps she knew that a number of BRF ladies would be wearing the color of the Argentine flag. Yesterday was important, but today may be a softer but equally important diplomatic event. Read the papers.

Exactly the lack of jewels made Queen Máxima's appearance stand out with her crisp and sober appearance, every inch a Queen.

She has so many earrings, but of course these diamonds once were bought for a British-born Dutch Princess whom became Queen of England, Schotland and Ireland. Apart from the earrings the Queen restricted herself more or less, as her Ascot outfit was relatively simple, apart from the hat (as should be at the races).

Much as I loved seeing Maxima wearing those gorgeous jewels at Ascot, I do agree with the previous post that it might have been better had she worn these to the Garter service.

It is a diamond trellis bracelet Queen Máxima took out of one of the cassettes of the family collection: https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images...48ed27deaf.png

I really like the swan brooch and had thought it was new until I read the article and it has indeed been seen before.

I think it id personal property, she wore it as Ms Máxima Zorreguita Cerruti during the civil wedding of Prince Constantijn. And as Princess Máxima she wore it again when she baptized Hr. Ms. Evertsen, an air defence frigate.

A few weeks ago Queen Máxima visited Culemborg. A shop-owner decided to give special coffee and tea melanges from her own shop Thee Zusje ("Tea Sister") to the Queen. And she chose a ring, from the brand IXXXI, from her other shop opposite, Tante Kado ("Auntie Gift"). With the lady from that shop she guessed Máxima's size. When the Queen passed they handed gifts to her or her escorte.

They thought: we will NEVER see it again, but to their big surprise the Queen wore their ring for the recent photo session! It is not an expensive ring: two bands of zirconia flanking a band of porcelain, red-white-blue, like the Dutch flag. But apparently Máxima was very happy with the gift.
