But that still would not be historic Jewels whioch have been worn by generations of belgian royal Ladies.

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:

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.

A shame. I do hope that Queen Paola bequeaths her Art Deco tiara to Mathilde or to Elizabeth, so it returns to the main line.

It would also be nice if Mathilde could acquire a new versatile tiara, that could be used with different stones interchangeably.

It would be a huge surprise if Astrid doesn't receive the art deco tiara. Paola can't be bothered with thinking about the royal function of jewellery AAIK.

Princess Astrid is Paola's only daughter. Logical that she receives her mother's personal jewelry.

Note that King Philippe is perfectly able to purchase a new diadem. If he can buy a new holiday home, a new yacht, a new car, he can purchase a diadem. No problem.

This blog claims the dragonfly brooch that Mathilde wore in Germany is a 1920s diamond and sapphire piece acquired at an auction in 2018.

I don't know if that information is accurate or reliable.
