Queen Máxima's Harmony Earrings

One of Queen Máxima's jewel trademarks is large, loud earrings -- exuberant pieces of jewelry that frame her joyful face. Today, we're looking at one of the most colorful pairs in her entire jewelry box.

These elaborate pendant earrings are the "Harmony" earrings from the Diane von Furstenberg for H. Stern collection. Set in 18ct yellow gold, they feature a rainbow of gemstones, including rubies, citrines, beryls, pink tourmalines, and diamonds.

The earrings are also convertible. They can be broken down into three parts. The top ruby stud can be worn independently, and the circular middle portion can be detached to be worn as a brooch.

Máxima has been wearing the Harmony earrings for a few years in their various forms, including during one of her first state visits as the Dutch queen consort.
