It is kind of strange that the Orange-Nassaus have four beautiful and quite substantial and valuable diamond-and-sapphire bracelets, of which two were not seen for 45 years, and that then they opted for de-construction of the Borneo Diamonds Bracelet, possibly Europe's most eye-popping bracelet- I would have gone for the pair of bracelets not worn for 45 years and change these to new use instead of the Borneo Diamonds Bracelet...

Maxima looked amazing in the sapphires. Glad to see it again.

Here are her jewels today:

The sapphire brooch is exquisite.

I notice today that she changed jewelry between events. Her broche is different. I don't remember to see any of them before.

I actually I do not understand the point of changing it. Wonder what is the reason?
I get the point of the hat but not the jewellery

I love Maxima's use of jewellery, and when she has a collection like that it's a National Treasure that only she can show her countrymen. Lucky she doesn't mind the job . . . or is it a calling?

Maxima's second brooch looks to be actually two separate brooches which, when you think about it, is a very Max thing to do.

I'm also loving Maxima's use of jewellery. Its wonderful how she seemingly effortlessly wears e.g bug brooches or those fantastic historical pieces. She's truly fun to watch because she brings some bling and characteristic to her everyday outfits.

For some reason I always expect 'more' of this tiara on her. The end result has IMHO never looked as nice as I anticipated, this time being no exception. Perhaps it is the lose hair this time... In Japan it was placed slightly off-center while at a previous a CD it just seemed too big. This time both things happened. For some reason this tiara looks better with Beatrix' puffy hair behind it.

The earrings are favorites of HM. I believe they belong to the Mellerio Ruby parure but HM has changed the lower stones numerous times, this time she used pearls. During her wedding she used small diamonds that belonged to Queen Wilhelmina Frederica (nee of Prussia).

I'd have preferred an up hair do with this rather grand pearl tiara!

I agree. She looks beautiful but a tiara - especially one that big - needs at least some of the hair to be styled and up to look good. The tiara just looks very random on top of the long, unstyled hair, like she decided to plop it on at the last minute. (Who knows, maybe she did).

Actually the whole picture is random - Maxima is in tiara and a beautiful dress while WA looks like an intern who just got off work and rushed over from the office.

Probably did. As discussed in other thread, the king gets dressed there. Maxima obviously needs more time for dress, hair and makeup. Though not an updo, her hair was certainly styled.

Great to see the tiara on her. But I agree, tiaras need elegant updos.

Oh, Max what happened? If you are going to bring out the Big Guns then you have to supply the ammunition. A really fabulous updo, tiara on straight, a fabulous Gala Gown (think Victoria in the red Nobel gown), think of a palate to paint the jewels on. A fabulous brooch on the shoulder, another at the waist, bracelets on your wrists and in the back of your updo a la Queen Silvia.

Instead, you wore a nice enough little evening gown that screamed: "I want to fade into the wallpaper tonight". Ant the big gun whimpered! That's what you wear to a nice little dinner or formal family birthday party, not the Diplomatic Corps Reception!

Has anyone checked her temperature?

Personally, I don't think the issue was the gown, it was the hairstyle. The hairstyle was just not suitable for such a large and imposing tiara.

The Mellerio Ruby Parure looks fantastic with this red dress.
Even though Maxima's hair can sometimes look disastrous during the daytime events, for the evening she usually delivers. Love her soft updo and it goes well with the tiara.

Is this the complete parure?

I like it very much too.
Only with the side parted hair, it gives the impression that the tiara is not standing straight on her head.
