Maxima went for major pearls for the occasion: her pearl drop earrings with the round pearl and diamond stud, plus two layered necklaces of pearls and silver-toned beads.

Maxima left her usual stacks of bracelets at home, but she did wear rings on both hands. On her right hand, she wore the diamond and ruby ring given to her by King Willem-Alexander after the birth of their eldest daughter, Amalia. On her left hand, she wore her engagement and wedding rings.
