Today, Queen Maxima wore the diamond version  of the fishnet motif or trellis necklace during "Prinsjesdag". The necklace, which is made of platinum, contains about one hundred individually set diamonds in three rows (and in three sizes). The diamonds are set on so-called knife-edged bars which form a fishnet or trellis motif The middle row contains the largest diamonds, some of which can be replaced by pearls or sapphires. The necklace was a wedding gift from Queen Emma for her daughter Queen Wilhelmina in 1901. The earrings of briolette cut aquamarines were a wedding present from Princess Juliana's mother in law, Princess Armgard of Lippe-Biesterfeld. Queen Máxima wore also  a new version  of her diamond bow (Laca) brooche. This time with the large pear shaped aquamarine set in diamonds as a pendant.  The provenance of this brooche is unknown.

The emerald diadem was a gift from Queen Emma to her daughter, Queen Wilhelmina in 1899. The emeralds in this "parure" are said to have been brought to Holland by Princess Wilhelmina of Prussia, wife of Prince Willem V of Orange-Nassau, in the 18th century. The slightly V shaped diamond diadem base, made by Eduard Schürmann in Frankfurt, has figure eight and scroll motifs. The necklace has a very intricate design of diamond elements enterspersed with small emeralds. The pendant which can be attached in various ways has a figure eight and floral motif.The necklace was often worn with the pendant at 3 o'clock. In recent years the necklace has been worn by Queen Maxima with the pendant and the clasp, a square emerald set in diamonds, worn in front as the central element. The versatile brooch has been seen in many variations through the years. The diamond and emerald bracelet, made by Van Kempen & Begeer, is slightly altered through the years.

The sapphire and bow devant de corsage or stomacher was first seen on Princess Emma (Waldeck and Pyrmont) around the time of her engagement with King Willem III in 1879. The diamond bow has a large oval cushion cut sapphire in the centre an an oval sapphire pendant between the ribbons. Probably an engagement present from the King. Creator of this stomacher is unknown. The large sapphire in the centre is set in two rings of  old mine diamonds which  seem to have a different colour than the diamonds set in the bow.. This central element has remained removable.

The emeralds in this "parure" are said to have been brought to Holland by Princess Wilhelmina of Prussia, wife of Prince Willem V of Orange-Nassau, in the 18th century. The slightly V shaped diamond diadem base, made by Eduard Schürmann in Frankfurt, has figure eight and scroll motifs. Originally it had two round diamond and emerald clusters set in the side and was topped with three oval diamond and emerald clusters. The tiara is mounted in silver and gold. 
Two oval emerald clusters were removed in the 1950's to make earrings for Queen Juliana. The diadem has been worn upside down in an oriental style by Queen Juliana and her daughters in the 50's and 60's. In 1956 Queen Wilhelmina was seen wearing a tiara with an emerald cluster. It's still unclear if this in fact the tiara of the parure or a composite with the brooch as center piece.

During the official vist of Mozambique's president last week, Queen Máxima wore a "new" unknown diamond bow (Laca) brooche. The bow brooche (set in gold an silver?) with a pear shaped, double row, diamond  oversized pendant suspended to the bow contains a smaller diamond drop pendant. Probably not the original ornament or drop pendant of this 19th (?) century brooche. The smaller (old mine) diamond drop pendant is supposedly taken from the triple bow stomacher from the Orange Nassau jewel collection. (Part of the "Stuart parure") The provenance of this brooche is unknown.

This diamond and ruby tiara is a part of the parure which was a gift from King Willem III to his second wife, Queen Emma in 1889. Made by the famous Jeweler Mellerio dits Meller in Paris for the huge sum of fl. 160.000, the diamond and ruby parure contains ornaments with a neo renaissance design. The somewhat unusual design of the tiara is also somewhat reminiscent of the Kokoshnik style. It consists of five (although the outer ones are barely visible as such) graduated diamond renaissance inspired festoons with floral diamond clusters. The three largest festoons contain diamond and ruby floral clusters. The rubies are of the highest quality. The festoons are connected by three garlands or strings of diamonds, which all have a substantial size. The suspended diamonds create a magnificent sparkle.

Final design of the diamond and emerald brooch made for Queen Wilhelmina, by court jeweler Eduard Schürmann from Frankfurt. This late 19th century brooch contains two emeralds probably from the inheritance of Princess Wilhelmina of Prussia, wife of Stadtholder Willem V.  After the Princess' death (1820) her son King Willem I inherited his mother emerald jewels. A part of this emerald collection was considered as "Orange-Nassau jewels" This versatile emerald brooch can be worn in several  settings or attached to different necklaces. During their reign, Queen Wilhelmina, Juliana and Beatrix have worn this brooch frequently. During the Australian State visit (2016), Queen Maxima wore this brooch, attached to a diamond riviere, together with  the huge cabochon emerald, also from the inheritance of Princess Wilhelmina of Prussia.

*EXCLUSIVE PICTURE* Close up of the sapphire bow stomacher which was made for Queen Wilhelmina of the Netherlands around 1900, at a time when  bow shaped jewels followed a classic pattern, with perfect symmetry on either side of an imaginary line which would go downward. Here, the diamond bow is free and natural The centre contains  a large rectangular Ceylon sapphire, circled with diamonds. These gemstones are probably from the inheritance of Queen Anna Paulowna.

Queen Máxima attended a gala dinner in Amsterdam yesterday. The Dutch Queen wore a sapphire, tanzanite, diamond and moonstone necklace and matching earrings from her own private collection. This set of jewels was first seen in 2013.  Provenance unknown.

This floral diamond brooch was first seen on Queen Wilhelmina in 1898, although in a different setting. The "brooch" was worn on a simple diamond band as a bracelet. Wilhelmina wore the bracelet in a pearl version (centre). This bracelet, made by the Dutch court jeweler Van Kempen & Begeer, was never seen again. The floral element was taken off the diamond band, altered and converted into a brooch.  The brooch was first seen by Queen Juliana. Since then, this beautiful brooch has been worn by several members of the Dutch Royal Family.

In ancient Greece, victorious athletes were crowned with wreaths of laurel leaves. Laurel wreaths have been Western cultural symbols of victory for centuries since, so it shouldn't be surprising that the wealthy and powerful have often commissioned their own diamond versions of laurel wreaths. The style is still so associated with ancient Greece that, in French, these tiaras are often called bandeaux à la grecque.The laurel wreath tiara is one of the oldest pieces in the Dutch collection, but there are two competing theories about its arrival in the family’s vaults. One posits that the tiara originally belonged to Princess Louise of Orange-Nassau, the sister of King Willem I of the Netherlands. The other theory suggests that the tiara was made in the early nineteenth century but purchased by the Dutch royals much later. According to this narrative of the tiara's history, it was acquired in the 1950s by Queen Juliana and Prince Bernhard and given to Princess Beatrix to celebrate her eighteenth birthday. Whether it was newly purchased or dug out of the depths of the family’s collection, Beatrix did indeed receive the tiara as a birthday gift, and she wore it regularly as a young princess. She also shared the tiara with two of her sisters, Princess Margriet and Princess Christina.In recent years, however, the focus has been on the Dutch brides who have worn the tiara. Laurentien Brinkhorst wore the diadem at her wedding to Beatrix’s son, Prince Constantijn, in 2001. And Princess Irene's daughter, Princess Carolina of Bourbon-Parma, wore it at her 2012 wedding to Albert Brenninkmeijer.

Design drawing of the Dutch Sapphire Tiara. In November 2013, the esteemed Dutch gemologist George Hamel presented the results of his own research into the origins of the Dutch Sapphire Tiara in the Silver Museum in Schoonhoven, Holland's 'Silver City'. It appears every single stone in the tiara was bought new, and the tiara was highly likely made in Amsterdam by Maison van der Stichel.
Hamel's research included another thorough look into the design drawings, and he was able to consult the specifications of the order. This document proves that the large central sapphire, as well as the other stones, were bought new. The 44 carat sapphire is 2 millimeter smaller then originally agreed on. All sapphires are of Sri Lankan origin, and the diamonds are, given their round shape, undisputably cut in Amsterdam. (Source: Erik Schoonhoven)

Princess Viktoria of Bourbon-Parma wore the small antique diadem without the pear shaped pearls yesterday. The antique pearl diadem of the Dutch royal family is sometimes called the Pavlovnik pearl diadem, because Anna Pavlovna, the queen consort of Willem II of the Netherlands, once had a diadem quite a lot like it. This diadem, which was made in 1900, was designed to mimic the shape of the original Pavlovnik tiara. The removable large, pear-shaped pearls that sit upright in the tiara are even older than the piece itself. They belonged to Amalia van Solms, a seventeenth-century Dutch princess who shares her name with Máxima’s eldest daughter, Catharina-Amalia, the current Princess of Orange. Queen Wilhelmina was the first wearer of this tiara, and it has been worn by all Dutch queens since then. Queen Juliana inherited the piece from her mother in 1962. She placed the tiara in the family’s jewel foundation, ensuring that all future queens of the Netherlands will also be able to wear it.

Queen Máxima is wearing the Mellerio Diamond and Ruby tiara during the state diner in Italy. This diamond and ruby tiara is a part of the parure which was a gift from King Willem III to his second wife, Queen Emma in 1889. Made by the famous Jeweler Mellerio dits Meller in Paris for the huge sum of fl. 160.000, the diamond and ruby parure contains ornaments with a neo renaissance design. The somewhat unusual design of the tiara is also somewhat reminiscent of the Kokoshnik style. It consists of five (although the outer ones are barely visible as such) graduated diamond renaissance inspired festoons with floral diamond clusters. The three largest festoons contain diamond and ruby floral clusters. The rubies are of the highest quality. The festoons are connected by three garlands or strings of diamonds, which all have a substantial size. The suspended diamonds create a magnificent sparkle.

During the first day of the state vist to Italy, Queen Máxima wore queen Juliana's pink quartz set. The jewel set contains three pieces: pear shaped earrings, a necklace (worn as a bracelet by Máxima) and a brooch. This set , which was made bij the court jeweler "Van Kempen, Begeer and Vos", was given to Juliana as a Christmas present, short after her marriage with Prince Bernhard, in 1937. The unique, cabochon cut, pink quartz jewels were inherited by her grandson Willem Alexander.

Princess/Queen Beatrix  wearing  parts of the Borneo jewels  This gold and diamond brooch/earrings/pendant were initially a part of a hindu-styled diadem presented by the Sultan of Koetei to Queen Wilhelmina of the Netherlands on the occasion of her investiture in 1898. The diadem consisted of a semi-circular base of two bands set with little diamonds, and topped by three central triangular-shaped floral motifs set with large cushion-cut diamonds from Borneo and with a smaller diamond-set floral spray. Queen Wilhelmina has never been seen with this tiara. Queen Juliana decided to dismantle it. The base was converted into a bracelet and the small floral sprays were converted into earrings. The three triangular motifs were converted into brooches, but they also can be worn as pendants for a necklace or a pair of earrings.

Today Princess Beatrix wore a part of the Borneo jewels during the Silver Anniversary of the Prince Bernhard Culture Fund in the Royal Palace Amsterdam.

After Juliana's abdication in 1980, the new Queen Beatrix began wearing the diadem at grand state functions. The piece looked slightly smaller on Beatrix, but that's because it sank a bit into her famous hairstyle, camouflaging the lower parts of the diadem. In 2013, ahead of the inauguration of King Willem-Alexander, more alterations were made to the diadem. The base was supplemented so that the piece now sits slightly higher on the wearer's head. Queen Maxima wore the diadem for the first time in public at her husband's inauguration, but on that occasion, she didn't actually wear the complete piece. The tall central diamond plume of the tiara was removed for the event and replaced with a single round brilliant, giving the tiara a curved shape resembling a Russian kokoshnik. That diamond alteration wasn't permanent, though. Queen Maxima wore the impressive full version of the diadem for the first time in public during a state visit to Denmark in March 2015.

The Dutch sapphire diadem is often incorrectly said to have been made by Mellerio dits Meller. In 2013, George Hamel presented new research on the diadem concluding that it was ordered by King Willem III for his wife, Queen Emma, in 1881 from a Dutch jeweler, Maison van der Stichel. The diadem was originally set on a frame that allowed it to be dismantled into parts, including a haircomb. The central sapphire element can be detached and worn as a brooch. (Hamel's findings showed that the central element was not, as was often said, an heirloom from Willem III's mother, Queen Anna Pavlovna.) In 1928, the diadem was overhauled by Van Kempen (then the Dutch court jeweler), who made alterations to the golden frame, making it one complete frame rather than a series of detachable ones, and removed and replaced some gemstones. Queen Emma died in 1934, and she left the diadem directly to her granddaughter, the then-Princess Juliana. As she did with so many of the family's grand jewels, Queen Juliana placed the diadem in the family's foundation.

The sapphires are Sri Lankan, including the grand central sapphire, which weighs in at around 44 carats.
