Yaaaaassss please!!! Does anyone know if the Dutch Royal Family has rules about which crown jewels can be worn outside of The Netherlands? At the very least, I hope she brings nothing less than the Dutch sapphire or Mellerio ruby parures (plus a bonkers gown only Maxima can get away with wearing!).
The rule is pretty much: WEAR ALL THE THINGS.
In the olden days, the monarch decided who would inherit the house Jewels/family Jewels etc (there's a crown and a sceptre and an orb but they're meh and nobody would want them). Then Willem III's sons died and he and his young wife Emma had a daughter, Wilhelmina, who became queen at the age of 10 and 'took office' when she turned 18. She, too, only had one child, (Queen) Juliana. She had four daughters. Under Dutch law she could not assign all of it to one of the children, so in 1963 she created a foundation to protect the regalia, and in 1968 she created 3 more to protect other goods incl all the jools. There are no restrictions on where to take stuff, since none of it is state owned.
While some Jewels were exclusively worn by the monarch (Juliana, Beatrix), all the women in the (extended) DRF can borrow stuff from the vaults. So even while The Bee was queen, her sisters, her daughters in law and the wives of her nephews would wear amazing stuff in exciting variations. Now, Max is president of the foundation, but as her mother in law before, she's very generous in letting the other women have some fun with the shinyyyy.
Besides the family stuff, Max (and others) have a nice collection of personal Jewels, like the tutti frutti necklace and bracelet and many of her rings.
I'm not sure though if it is safe to say that 'if you've seen in on more than one lady, it's part of the foundation', since they seem to borrow eachother's private stuff too.
Still, you won't see Laurentien with the Sapphire or the Mellerio Ruby or the Württemberg. These are more or less queeny stuff, so Max only. The Stuart was never worn in public by Beatrix. To be honest I expected Max to wait with it until a jubilee (25 yr or 10 or so) of Wax's reign to take it for a spin, but hey. it's Max: wear. all. the. things.
Still, the pale blue Stuart Diamond itself, we haven't seen that in decades.
Here's your rabbit hole about the riches of the DRF, in Englishhttp://www.koninklijkever...l/en/about-us/stichtingen
(also includes an interesting line of succession, which makes clear that, though the current monarchy is only 200 years old, the Oranje-Nassaus have been top dogs for centuries)
And yes, they guard a sh*t ton of shiny stuff and other goodies. I live next to the Loo Palace (now museum) built by William and Mary, and though the museum owns many things in there, the DRF also uses it as a place to exhibit foundation stuff.
