Here are photos from the gala tonight:

I am so excited that she wore this tiara! Not only do I love it, it's been 9 years since she last worn it. The last appearance of this tiara was at Mary and Frederik's wedding.

So the Queen is actively defying the current trend to reduce tiara occasions, and wears a tiara at a “mere black-tie event, a “mere” official visit? I’m stunned and very, very pleased ! (… if only the dress would be more flattering…).

I sorely missed the star tiara at the weddings in Stockholm and Luxembourg, but surely HM doesn’t want to be bound to a strict pattern in her choice of jewels.

DonÄt like the tiara like this. It needs moe hair behind it to hide the connection with which the stars or pearl buttons are attached to the tiara frame. On Beatrix this worked perfect because it was then hidden in her hair.
But like this it looks like the staris are flying over the tiaraa frame until you have a better pic where on can see the attachements.

Good to see this interpretation of the tiara again after a long gap. Perhaps we will see Maxima with her hair a bit more, and perhaps see this tiara against a fuller hairdo next time.

I so missed her wedding tiara and her wedding briolette earrings. We don't see them very often. Really hate the dress though, sorry!

I really loved Maxima's wedding jewelry. Her tiara, earrings, and bracelet were very beautiful. Here is a photo of her stunning wedding earrings:

Her bracelet is very stunning as well. It hard for me to find a good photo of it, but you can see a great close up of it in this video at 12:51.

I agree, the fire opals jewellery looks wonderful. Maxima does put it to good use.

Those fire opals are my favorite of all of her jewelry. Now if she had a tiara to match, I would be so excited!

Just three good sized fired opals would be enough to insert them into Queen Emma's Diamond Tiara. (We know that the central stones are exchangeable, they have been replaced by rubies a couple of times.) Imo, the floral motive of the tiara would work nicely with the bright oranges of fire opals.

Unfortunately, I am not good at Photoshop or I would have already done that.

Perhaps someone here is familiar, and can give us an idea of what the tiara and fire opals would look like.

I just looked at the two photoshops Her_Majesty posted at the other thread and I am delighted. The orange stones work great for that tiara. The exchangeable coloured stones would be a simple, quick and cost efficiant way to add more options to their tiaras. Maxima could also try amethysts, another coloured stone which does not yet feature in her tiara collection.

On the other hand I must confess, that I'm not so convinced by the stars on top of the tiara. Yes, it is the historic version of the tiara, but the proportions are just strange. It is quite understandable, that this version hasn't been worn for decades
