Looking at the new official Pictures, I see the sapphire ring on Mathildes right Hand. Can somebody confirm, if this is the sapphire ring, she received as replacement for her Engagement ring?
Oh no, they look so austere! But her jewels are elegant!

We never saw her engagement ring (ruby) since a long time. Did the Queen lost it ?

Her original ring is a garnet. I thin she alternates between the sapphire and the garnet.

The Royal Order of Sartorial Splendor: Tiara Thursday: The Nine Provinces Tiara

I have never been a fan of this tiara. I don't think it's horrible but I don't think it's wonderful either. I think it is too pointy and architectural for me. Though I do like the original version of the tiara. Those large diamonds on the spikes look amazing! However, I feel that those spikes are a little too tall.

Even though I do not like the tiara, I hope Mathilde will wear the full version of the tiara soon so I can see what it looks like on her.

That is a lovely pair of diamond earrings. Are they new or have they been seen on her previously?

She also wore them on the gala on April 29, the evening before the inauguration of King Willem Alexander, and on the inauguration itself.

Queen Mathilde had two tiara appearances of 2013:

1 2

I am hoping to see her wear the full Nine Provinces Tiara, and maybe her wedding tiara in 2014.

I really really hope that Mathilde will inherit Fabiola's jewels especially the tiara given by Franco. It would put Mathilde more on a par with other royals in the jewel department.

The ruby ring isn't lost, Maria-Olivia. Q Mathilde still wears the ring, for ex when her husband ascended the throne on 21st July.

Mathilde definitly needs more tiara appearances.
I cannot wait to see the return of glittering state visits to Belgium. It all depends on how fast there is a new government after the elections in May. The last incoming state visit took place 6 years ago and I'm confident that the new reigning couple will bring back the glitter to Belgium in 2014/15. I'm eager to see how and where they will host their guests. And since they are more open towards the press than their predecessors I'm hoping for behind the scenes coverage.
And last not least I want Philippe to buy his queen some nice jewellery.

Regarding the wedding tiara. I don't think Mathilde will ever wear the art deco tiara again. I guess Paola will give it to her daughter Astrid. Too bad that Albert and Paola didn't continue Queen Elisabeth's generous habit to gift jewellery upon the arrival of a new grandchild. Astrid, Mathilde and Claire's empty vaults would have been thankful for that.

And finally on a different note in 2011 Mathilde's sister Hélène has worn pearl and diamond earrings on her civil wedding and weeks later Mathilde wore these earrings and a matching diamond necklace to Albert and Charlene's wedding in Monaco. I cannot recall having seen these earrings again. I wonder to whom this set belongs, to Hélène, Mathilde or perhaps to their sister Elisabeth who designs jewellery? Does anyone know more about this set?

Today at the Chinese state dinner, Mathilde wore the base of the Nine Provinces tiara:

1 2

Kind of disappointed that she did not wear the full version of the tiara, as she does not have a lot of opportunities to wear tiaras.

i think she looks really really lovely and she's quite right to play a little with this tiara, and i'm so glad to see some glitter back to the Belgian court....
Maybe she does'nt like the spikes on it, i must admit i almost prefer the simple bandeau like this : so regal and understated !

The first time we saw the Queen's tiara after the late Queen Astrid was Queen Fabiola on her wedding day.
First time a Queen is wearing the Sash of the Leopold's Order, wonderful Queen wearing her jewels more as Queen Fabiola did.
Did Paola and Fabiola not have the Order of Leopold?
