I think this is the necklace she has worn several times for the last royal events - and it seems to be only a necklace.
What puzzles me a little bit is that Q Paoloa always mixes platinum jewelry like her tiara/necklace with yellow gold bracelets - I find this a little unusual.

Queen Paola received a brooch from Grand Duchesse Josephine Charlotte in 1993 when Albert became king.

It is probably because she doesn't own any bracelets made from platinum! The Belgian Royal Family Jewel Collection is not that extensive either - Queen Paola appears to own only three or our tiaras, maybe less.

Gosh, Lilian must have been really p!#$*d to have to let go of the jewels she wore when there was no queen...

I doubt it - she had an extensive collection of her own and very little was relinquished to Queen Fabiola ! Furthermore her collection seems to have been sold after her death. There was little love lost between the Princess de Rèthy and her step-children.

It's likely that Lilian's jewels were more valuable than the jewellery collections of Queens Fabiola and Paola combined.

Oh, I was sure she usurped the royal jewels and was given on the head for selling some

She could use the Nine Province tiara as a bracelet if she wanted something plaitum and with diamonds - Lilian used to wear the piece a lot this way since she wasn't "allowed" to use it as a tiara. Perhaps she simply doesn't care that much about jewels in general

Shame that she's a Queen but only owns few tiaras.I personally don't like any of the tiaras she has worn.

Was Mathilde given one of Paola's tiaras upon marriage?

No, Paola lent her one tiara for her wedding. Since then CP Mathilde wears her own diamond laurel wreath tiara (I've read that it was a gift from group of Belgian aristocrats).

Queen Paola visiting EuroSkills Spa-Francorchamps (the European championships for manual, technical and technological professions) on October 5, 2012:

Paola's coral/diamond necklace with gold sea shell pendant markedly intrigued me. I wonder if the queen got it as a present on her recent 75th birthday... In any case it is beautifully evocative of the Ruffo di Calabria family's coat of arms: Queen Paola´s Family (Ruffo di Calabria)

...attending the traditional autumn concert at the Royal Palace in Brussels on October 24, 2012:

This pair of different earrings in the shape of sun(?) and moon looks awesome. Does anyone have a clue which gemstones they feature?

I have noticed the Queen doesn't wear the Nine Provinces Tiara frequently? I wonder if it's uncomfortable, or just prefers Queen Elisabeth's bandeau. I personally think the Nine Provinces looks wonderful on her, suits her hairstyle very well.

I think neither Paola nor Albert care about their family's jewel collection being so small. After all we should have seen at least a small piece added.
For example I'not wrong Mathilde has two new necklaces.

But my question is:
Why was Lilian allowed to sell the jewels?
Did she do it without the royal family's knowledge?
