The Royal Order of Sartorial Splendor: Flashback Friday: Benelux Engagement Rings

My top favorite here is Stephanie's stunning ring. Even though I do like the color of the central diamond, I do not like the overall design of Maxima's ring. I really dislike Mathilde's ruby ring, but I do love that sapphire ring much better. Margriet's ring is nice but I would not want it for myself. Queen Paola and Princess Claire's rings look alright. My worst here are, Mathilde's ruby ring, Astrid, Beatrix, Maria Teresa, and Claire Lademacher's rings.

My top 3 are
Beatrix-simply gorgeous and very unique!
Maxima-I love the colour on her and even though I would not wear such big stones it doesn´t look bulky
Mathilde-the same as with Maxima´s ring-the colour of the stone is wonderful!

I really like the concept behind Maxima's ring placing the stone horizontally in between two rows of diamonds. Considering I work in a library I wouldn't want to wear something that could possible get caught on a book, cleaning CD's/DVD's or the old newspapers I work with. I wouldn't want it as big as Maxima's but I could foresee myself wearing something like it. :)

The Royal Order of Sartorial Splendor: Flashback Friday: A Few More Engagement Rings

None of these rings really impress me, however Clotilde and Sophie's rings are very lovely. Soraya's ring is just way too big and tacky to me and Victoria's ring is simply hideous! Nathalie's ring is way too small and finally, Empress Josephine's ring is interesting but I don't like it overall.

They are all very pretty and cute wedding rings except that I find Soraya´s ring too ostentatious and bulky.It is well-made and surely cost a fortune,but I prefer smaller rings with delicate ornaments/design instead of big jewels that scream "I´m expensive". Just my thoughts:-)

Why don't these women get immaculate and BEATIFUL manicures? Their nails look chewed and worn down. Surely if they can get their hair done regularly, they can have manicures several times a week if needed. Besides there are new treatments that last a long time. Grooming details matter and are noticed. Feminine hands with polish on the nails look elegant with their jewelry.

Perhaps the rest of the world does not share the US obsession of having highly andvisibly manicured hands?

No one says that you t have to get all flashy with the nails. However, a little nail care don't hurt. It is the same as making sure that your clothes are clean, your hair combed, your teeth are brushed.

Anyhooo, Some of these rings are beautiful, and some well

The rings that I like are Princess Clotilde's, Princess Nathalie's, and Hereditary Princess Sophie's. Empress Josephine Charlotte's ring is OK, but it would've been better with just a diamond/sapphire IMO. I don't particularly like the Countess Spencer's ring nor Queen Soroya's.

Would that train of thought also apply to teeth? Somehow so many seem to overlook the necessary dental interventions, why, pray tell?

elmundo reports that letizia's engagement ring was bought by torres and iñaki, using public money. felipe asked cristina to pick the ring up, but her being sick, it was iñaki who picked it up with torres, and torres paid for it with the aizoon card. felipe never paid them back, which makes letizia's ring a piece paid for with corrupt money. since the start of the case, letizia has not worn the ring in sign of her disapproval, and the article says she has never forgiven felipe and iñaki for this.

Poor Letizia, I would be furious! I can understand why Felipe asked Cristina to pick the ring up, but I don't understand why he didn't pay anyone for it! If all he knew at that time was that Inaki collected the ring instead of Cristina, surely he would have paid Inaki? Someone? Anyone?! for the purchase of an engagement ring.

I wonder why Filipe would pay for his sisters engagement ring... Iñaki couldn't afford??? It seems to me if that were the case her father would pay for it... Right?

I could not believe that the future Queen of Spain received an engagement ring costing ONLY 3000 euros! It is too "cheep" for such an occasion.

I have a hard time believing that Felipe did not pay for the ring. I can see asking someone to pick it up for him but not the payment part. That seems a little far fetched. And should it matter how much it costs if it's what Letizia wanted.

I don't think I've ever seen a picture of the engagement ring Stefano Casiraghi gave to Caroline of Monaco.
Could this be the one?
