During a state visit to New Zealand in November, Queen Maxima of the Netherlands pulled out all of the sparkling stops for a state dinner in Wellington.

Although the dinner was black tie, Maxima wore Queen Emma's Diamond Tiara, pairing it with Queen Wilhelmina's diamond earrings and diamond scroll brooch. She also added her own diamond wedding and family initial bracelets.

Maxima attended numerous glittering events in 2016, but for me, this was her best bejeweled appearance by far! (More from this event over here.)
