All this wedding chatter, and we haven't even gotten to the most delicious part: the jewels on display. This affair may not have been anything like Sweden's wedding on the gem scale, but there were plenty of ladies that brought the sparkle. And they deserve to be recognized for their dedication, don't you think?

You know you have a spectacular collection when you can come up with the perfect complement to a gown of any color. Well played, Princess Michael.

At the wedding itself, I had no expectations of impressive gems. After all, it was a day affair. Of course you have the brooch brigade:

Much to my utter surprise and glee, a few ladies did bring their big guns to the wedding. First we have Máxima, of course. You know our magpie never misses an opportunity to shine, and here she is with a diamond riviere necklace, diamond earrings, and diamond stars stuck to her hat. Bless her heart.
Now, hold on before you jump down to the comments, because I can hear you all the way over here: WHERE IS THE BRIDE?? Well, that, my friends is what Tiara Thursdays are for. Until tomorrow...
