King Willem-Alexander and Queen Maxima of the Netherlands traveled to Christchurch for the second day of their state visit to New Zealand on Tuesday. Here's a look at Maxima's jewelry for the day.

With her retro hat and yellow coat, Maxima wore a pair of modern drop earrings. They feature a sparkling hoop with a round, sparkling dangle. Inside that dangle, a round, blush-colored pendant is suspended. Another long pendant of the same color is suspended from the bottom of the sparkling dangle. (These are ... not my favorite.)

Maxima also repeated the same diamond bracelets and diamond ring that she wore during yesterday's daytime and evening events in Wellington.

We got an excellent look at her ring and bracelets during one event from today in particular: a visit to Willowbank Wildlife Reserve, where both royals got to (had to?) pet one of New Zealand's most important national symbols, a Kiwi.
