Queen Máxima in the Antique Pearl Tiara

I’ve mentioned before that Queen Máxima of the Netherlands is one of my favorite royals. If I could sit down for tea with any royal woman, Queen Máxima would be at the very top of my list. In this glamorous photograph, she (when she was the Princess of Orange in 2011) is wearing the Antique Pearl Tiara with the matching earrings and brooch. I think her look in this photograph could easily be transported into any era and she would still fit in and look stylish. What do you think?

Queen Máxima’s Engagement Ring

One of my favorite royals is Queen Máxima of the Netherlands because of her vivaciousness. She wears clothes and royal jewelry with enthusiasm and sometimes her motto seems to be more is more is more. I love that about her and we’ll talk more about Queen Máxima and her tiaras another day. Today, let’s briefly chat about her engagement ring.

King Willem-Alexander proposed to his love, Ms. Máxima Zorreguieta of Argentina, with an oval-shaped orange diamond ring. The rare orange diamond is flanked by two white diamonds set in platinum and encrusted with numerous brilliant-cut diamonds. King Willem-Alexander was feeling patriotic with this particular diamond. As Prince of Orange it was fitting to gift his bride, the future Princess of Orange (now Queen), a rare orange diamond. I think the orange diamond is beautiful and suits her exuberant personality very well. What do you think?
