It looks like the top-central portion has been altered (with the plume and three big diamonds being replaced with one big diamond). I think I like it better this way as those three diamonds were really the only thing keeping me from loving this tiara.

Also, we can see the entire thing now

I must say I like Maxima's version of the Mellerio Saphire tiara best. She just has a knack with jewels.

I'm salivating at all these sapphire jewels; my poor brain can't absorb it all!

And, honestly, I never realized the Mellerio Tiara had a row of sapphires at its base.

I thought it was interesting that the Mallerio sapphire tiara was worked on overnight to convert it to its "full" sapphire form, after Mabel wore it last night in the fiorm of her wedding tiara.

The tiara Mabel wore the night before is indeed her wedding tiara but not the Mellerio Sapphire, Maxima wore during the inauguration. trying to find the link...

I stand to be corrected - Pr Mabels tiara really seems to be a much scaled down version of the Mellerio Sapphire - as always found the info on the much appreciated The Royal Order of Sartorial Splendor: Wedding Wednesday: Princess Mabel's Gown

order of sartorial splendour webpage. :-)

Simply breathtaking! Queen Maxima's jewels were absolute perfection. I am so glad she choose this tiara, very regal. The tiara, earrings, and brooch were beyond exquisite.

Does anyone have any pics of the actual investiture crowns that were put on Willem and Maxima's head when they were crowned King and Queen??? I mean them wearing the crowns, not just the crowns themselves, I've already seen those.

The Dutch don't have crowns place on their heads. The symbolic crown is displayed but not worn.

Darn Ok, thank you for the close up. It would have been awesome to see Maxima in the crown and staff.

That is *the* crown of the Netherlands, there is no King crown or Queen consort and they are not crowned
