I do not know if they are a loan, but it could be so. I do not recall HM ever wearing these earrings before, but let's hope they are hers indeed.

As Duchess of Brabant she has borrowed pieces from jewelers. For example the necklace and earrings during the wedding of CPss Victoria (from Brussels jeweler Leysen) and a Wolfers necklace which was worn at the pre-wedding dinner of the Duke of Cambridge at later at the pre-wedding dinner of the HGD of Luxembourg. The jewels worn at the 40th birthday of the Prince of Orange were also a loan as were the diamond and pearl earrings worn at the baptism of her goddaughter Pss Alexia of The Netherlands. The necklace and earrings that she wore during the dinner after the wedding of the prince of Monaco were borrowed from the Brussels jeweler Manalys.

Loans from jewellers reduce the prestige of the Royal House a bit. Then the Queen is in exactly the same league as an actress on a red carpet event. It is precisely the provenance and anciennity of royal jewels which add something extra. I don't understand why the Koninklijke Schenking / Donation Royale does not set up a collection of jewels. Every month nice jewels are auctioned in Europe. They could create a pool, available for the Queen and the princesses of the House. It is really not that costly.

Hopefully the queen owns them outright,I really hope that Queen Fabiola's aquamarines and other jewels are still available to the Belgian RF as the late queen had some wonderful pieces.

I'm not sure but for me it seems that the second pair of earrings worn by QM in South Korea is just a different setting of her old diamond pink stone earrings.

Actually since some time I have seen some similarities between some of QF jewels and pieces appearing on QM. For example look at QM two pairs of "new diamond earrings" :

https://3.bp.blogspot.com/-PbUSJPExH...mathilde04.png
https://4.bp.blogspot.com/-iUeDgDQwe...600/0earr0.jpg
and do compare them with the sketch of late QF art deco diamond bracelet from Pinterest :
https://www.google.pl/search?biw=125...OdiKUFI5qsILM:
There can be seen some clear similarity what could be a proof that QM has just altered or modified pieces of jewellery(also historical) that she now has at her disposal. Possibly the same with aquamarine earrings

Well Mathilde will wear it, Élisabeth will wear it. Élisabeth's daughters will wear it. The collection will be available for the princesses of the House. We have seen with the Poltimore or the Greville that a new addition can become an asset. But this will never happen when Mathilde loans something from Wolfers, then from Leysen, then from Manalys, etc.

I am surprised. It is the Belgian Royal House, not exactly the most pauvre one would think. Strange that the Queen of the Belgians has to loan jewels.

Today during Queen Elisabeth Music Competition Queen Mathilde wore a diamond pearl earrings which are modification of her diamond aquamarine earrings she had worn for the first time at the Belgian state visit to South Korea.

So it seems the upper part can be worn with different stones. I still hopes that those aquamarines came from late Queen Fabiola estate.

I haven’t seen any suggestion that they are fake. Why do you say so ?

I have the idea these aquamarine pendants have a modern setting, but we need to see the "back" of these pendants to see if it indeed can be a setting from the 1950's/1960's.

Too modern setting and not a nice collar comparing to Queen Fabiola's aiguemarines.

I agree that it would be wise for the Belgian Royal Family to have their few important jewellery pieces in a foundation of some kind. I also read that they had an important rivière necklace and that it was given to Joséphine Charlotte when she got married which shows a bizarre attitude to being the reigning family of Belgium.

It's not that strange. Most Royal families had the custom that many of the jewels went from mother to daughter. Queen Ingrid of Denmark for instance brought a truckload of jewellery that she'd inherited from her mother and grandmother with her from Sweden and Queen Marie-José of Italy brought many important jewels with her from Belgium when she married. None of this mattered since they all married other royals so if one marriage emptied the vault it was soon filled by another.

Could anyone please identify the origin of the dragonfly (?) brooch that Queen Mathilde wore on the first day of her official visit to Thruringia and Saxony-Anhalt ? Thanks.

I do not know the origin but it does not look like the same dragonfly brooch that is owned by her mother-in-law Queen Paola:

https://www.beaumonde.nl/royalty/de-...koningin-paola

The website modekoninginmathilde claims that there was also a dragonfly brooch that went from Queen Elisabeth to GDss Josephine-Charlotte, but it seems to be a different one:

The deco tiara loan from Queen Paola to Princess Mathilde because her tiara was not ready for her wedding dauy is the very last between the 2 Queens.
I don't think we will see other jewels from Queen Fabiola .

I was hoping it could be Queen Paola’s brooch, but I agree it looks different.
