We’re in the official countdown to the abdication of Queen Beatrix and the inauguration of King Willem-Alexander now (April 30th!), and it’s officially Dutch Month here on the blog. Continuing our Dutch-themed features, we have yet another example of the jewel creativity of the Dutch house:
|The Sapphire Necklace Tiara|
during the 70th birthday celebrations of Queen Margrethe of Denmark. The tiara’s been used at some black tie occasions, which usually demand tiaras on a slightly smaller scale. We haven’t seen the necklace used in its original form since the tiara conversion, so it remains to be seen if it is a permanent change.
|Princess Margriet and Princess Máxima|
Video: the tiara on Máxima at Queen Margrethe's birthday celebrations, close up around 4:35This was a good addition to the Dutch family collection, since Queen Beatrix alone used the large Dutch Sapphire Tiara, but there are other sapphire jewels that could use a tiara to accompany them. All in all, an excellent conversion, I'd say.
What do you say: an excellent conversion, or better in necklace form?
