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, it’s about her engagement ring.

King Willem-Alexander proposed to his love, Ms. Máxima Zorreguieta of Argentina, with a large oval-shaped orange diamond. The orange diamond is flanked by two emerald-cut 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 colored diamond is beautiful and suits her exuberant personality very well. What do you think?
