Crown Princess Máxima Jewellery 2: November 2006-April 2013
Welcome to the 2nd thread to discuss the jewelry of Princess Maxima of The Netherlands

The previous thread can be found

I wonder which Tiara Máxima will wear the next time :rolleyes: . I really hope she'll wear the Ruby Tiara again!
It must be my favourite tiara on her!
Or maybe she'll get another new one! She really has the most gorgeous "collection" of tiaras of all the European Princesses!

Well, she probably has the smallest collection of private jewelry of all the present crownprinceses, as most things she wore are part of a foundation and has to be shared.

I would like it if she would receive a new, personal tiara, as it brings something personal to the collection. I still wonder why the jewellers didn't give her a wearable tiara for her wedding, instead of the two unwearable monstrosities she got.

Her_Majesty 11-30-2006 11:17 AM

Does she have any own Tiara that belongs to her personal collection?
It doesn't seem so, right? :ermm:

The base of the Star Tiara she wore for her wedding belongs to the Pearl Button Tiara. Also the other tiaras all belong to the Dutch collection...
Which pieces belong to Máxima herself? Some earrings or necklaces?

Marengo 12-28-2006 06:19 AM

I think she has very little personal jewelry, apart from the semi-precious or fake things.
I think the pearl necklace she wore at Sverre's baptism is her though. It was only seen first in Estonia worn by Maxima and I have never seen anybody else wearing it. The same goes for the moon-ish diamond brooch she wore at the baptism (and Beatrix' silver jubilee concert in The Hague) or the swan brooch she wore for the baptism of a ship a while ago.

New Emeralds for Princess Máxima
It looks like Her Royal Highness Princess Máxima of the Netherlands, The Princess of Orange, wore new earrings and in her hair it looks one of the brooches from the Emerald Parure, see this picture:

The only piece I can recognize is the diamond cross with the central emerald and the big cabochon emerald as a pendant. These earrings are new for me.
If that is so, then it is good news because up until now two prongs from the Emerald Diademe were used as earrings, see this picture:

If Princess Máxima's earrings are new, the Court Jeweller can create a diademe with five emerald prongs by placing the original prongs back. When they restore it to the latest setting, then Princess Máxima can wear five prongs again, as our fellow poster John once photoshopped in this picture:

Maxima wore the Pearl Tiara in Norway (again :flowers: ), but this time with the Pearls!

Pearl Tiara with the Pearls:

In 2001 Maxima wore the Pearl Tiara in Oslo, too, when she attended the wedding of Haakon and Mette-Marit. She didn't use the Pearls back then.

Every tiara Maxima wears is lovely on her but the most radiant jewel is her radiant face.

Does anybody have more info on the brooch HRH wore in Turkey, with the red-pink outfit? I can not remember that I ever saw it before on any Dutch royal, so I assume it is a new one.

Funny that she wore the brooch that her family gave to the Queen btw (upon the arrival in Turkey).

A visitor to the new Diamond Museum in Amsterdam looks at a replica of the tiara of Princess Maxima which she used during her marriage with Prince Willem-Alexander, on Wednesday 11 April 2007. The museum opened Wednesday 11 April 2007 with an exhibition of the Dutch Crown Jewels

Hmz, I was hoping that the museum would give Maxima some nice jewel. They had a portrait of Maxima (with the horrid triangle tiara) hanging outside their building (covering half of the facade) for almost two years now, so to make up for this a nice tiara would be appreciated ;)

Vanesa 04-13-2007 01:11 AM

I agree that every jewel shines in Princess Maxima in a special way for she is so merry and happy. Jewel suits much more in happy women.


Fashionista100 09-02-2007 01:47 PM

Is there anyone who has a closeup of the Green ring Maxima wore when there was the photocall with her family recently?

Henri M. 09-02-2007 02:49 PM

So to see the Princess had no green ring, but her diamond engagement ring with the orange diamond.
This is a picture of the Princess during the last photoshoot. I can only see the engagement ring.

micas 09-03-2007 07:40 AM

she has an amaizing collection of jewels, and is became larger day by day.In this topic just miss the tutifruty neckless that she were in the 40th anversary.

carlota 09-03-2007 07:54 AM

she has adorable jewels indeed! and an adorable mother-in-law who lets her use quite a lot of hers!

i loved the ones she wore for the 40th birthday celebrations of willem-alexander. any idea of who designed them? it seemed like the perfect match for her fucsia gown!

Cartier Tutti Frutti
It is most likely a necklace and bracelet and earrings (worn earlier, not this weekend) purchased by Cartier Paris.

From Cartier: "Tutti Frutti (Italian for "All fruits") is the name of a multicoloured line by Cartier. Necklaces, bracelets, brooches, pins, earrings and decorations for evening bags are decorated with multicoloured precious and semi-precious stones, joyfully mixing the colours of emeralds, sapphiers, rubies and other coloured stones.

Some of these precious stones are cut in leaf or flower shapes. Some versions have polished stones while others make a more robust appearance. The engraved stones are mounted in a platina frame. Tutti Frutti is a registered trademark of Cartier."

carlota 09-03-2007 08:36 AM

thanks for the info, henri!

do you think this one is the one maxima is wearing? it's beautiful! good choice.

Helena 09-03-2007 08:51 AM

No, Maxima´s necklace didn´t have the shining blue sapphires below. I think Maximas necklace was a paste. I don´t understand why she would wear such a thing while the family has so many beautiful real necklaces around like Queen Wilhelmina´s birthday necklace or the necklace of sapphires that both would have suited this dress.

Henri M. 09-03-2007 09:06 AM

Not paste. The tutti frutti series comes with polished and more rough versions. The Daisy Fellowes Tutti Frutti necklace had polished cabochon sapphires while the Princess' necklace had rough and unpolished emerald or green semi-precious stones.

The Princess of Orange, with such a fantastic collection, would never wear paste for an highday in her spouse's life. That is beyond every logic, to neglect the glinstering diamonds and opt for fake. So the necklace is real, but with less expensive stones than the Fellowes' one, I assume.
