Danish Earrings for a Dutch Queen

Queen Maxima of the Netherlands was out and about on Thursday examining new medical technology devices -- as a queen does -- in Eindhoven. She wore a recent addition to her jewelry box, a pair of girandole earrings by Ole Lynggaard, with her gold and cabochon gemstone bracelet and a cocktail ring. You'll probably recognize Ole Lynggaard as one of Crown Princess Mary of Denmark's favorite jewelry brands.


Here are a couple of close-ups. The earrings are the "Gipsy" style (see here), and they feature polished cabochon drops and gold branch-like designs. And since I know that several of you are Ring People, here's a look at the very interesting ring she wore on her right hand. It almost looks tropical, doesn't it?
