She was very pretty and elegant and somebody knows the name of this big tiara/ parure ? Is still in the family?
I have found detailed information about the parure on the Dutch language website: http://www.modekoninginma...an-de-koninklijke-familie
. See below for translated information and images.
Wilhelmina got this set/parure with sapphires for her wedding in 1901 from the Dutch population and contained, besides an impressive diadem also a necklace and two bracelets with brilliant sapphires. Queen Wilhelmina posed several times with the parure, but at gala dinners and state visits, they were rarely or not seen it. Whatever the reason behind this, we unfortunately do not know for sure, but the presumption is that the tiara and necklace were too heavy and impractical. In 1962, the year that Queen Wilhelmina died, Queen Juliana decided to break up and distribute the parure under her four daughters, who had got a nice memory of their grandmother Wilhelmina.
All four princesses (Beatrix, Irene, Margriet and Christina) got anyway earrings as a gift, but because of the fact that no official information has come out, it is unknown what exactly comes from the set and what is not. However, the Dutch Royal Jewels website used a lot of detective work to figure out which jewelry at least be made of the impressive diadem.
The pair of earrings that Beatrix received was and is frequently seen with a design jeweler Bode and Bode, which delivered a pair of earrings which can be worn in many different ways.
Princess Irene got a pair of earrings that closely resembles the earrings of Beatrix.
Princess Margriet also got similar earrings. The difference with the earrings of Beatrix is primarily in the bottom of the earrings, which terminate around at Princess Margriets earrings and Beatrixs earrings at one point.
She also received a version with sapphires, which she lend to Queen Maxima at the inauguration (30 April 2013)
In addition, the princess is regularly seen with two small diamond brooch with a sapphire. Never officially confirmed that these jewels are made of sapphire parure, but given the design and shape of the stones is the opportunity present.
It is unknown to me which part princess Christina received from the sapphire parure.
It is expected not all the stones of the tiara and necklace have been (re)used. Chances are that we in the coming years for example, still going to see new jewelry with sapphires or it turns out that the impressive necklace for example, still has been spared during disassembly. The only recognizable from the necklace what we have seen so far are the five sapphires that Maxima and Margriet left attach on the small sapphire tiara.
What at least is certain, is the destination of the special bracelets of this parure. They in fact remained intact and are still widely worn by the royal family. We saw Beatrix with the bracelet in slightly modified version during the inauguration of King Willem-Alexander and M?xima wore the armbands during the grateful/ thank you party for Princess Beatrix.
