10. The Countess of Wessex wore a pair of freshwater pearl earrings with a gold-toned starfish dangle to watch the women's semi-final at Wimbledon on Thursday. The earrings are by Heavenly Necklaces. (You can't see them in this photo, but she also wore bracelets by Tiffany and Patrick Mavros.)

8. The Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall are on a summertime tour in Wales this week. Camilla wore her lovely diamond leek badge for a visit to an ice cream parlor in Gwynedd on Tuesday. The brooch is modeled after the cap badge of the Welsh Guards; Prince Charles is their royal colonel.

7. In Paris, Princess Sirivannavari Nariratana of Thailand attended the Christian Dior Haute Couture Fall/Winter 2016 show on Monday; she wore a major pair of earrings for the event, and I think we can assume that they're by Dior.

2. Queen Elizabeth II of the United Kingdom has been in Scotland all week, and on Saturday, she wore her mother's diamond palm leaf brooch for the opening of Scotland's parliament in Edinburgh. (This almost got my top vote of the week, but it's partially hidden by her lapel in all of the photos!)

1. The fun, glittering tassel earrings worn by Queen Maxima of the Netherlands this week ended up getting my top vote. These feature gemstone beads (probably garnets?) gathered by diamond "ribbons." She wore them for a meeting with the Greek president at Noordeinde Palace on Monday.
