Queen Maxima of the Netherlands attended the 50th celebration of the Rosarium Winschoten in Winschoten on Tuesday, where she posed alongside a new variety of rose named in her honor.

Maxima wore a large, statement-making hat for the occasion, plus a pair of colorful earrings.

Here's a closer look at the earrings, which feature green and purple stones and diamonds. I believe these are by Amrapali, an Indian jewelry firm. They're extremely similar to the lapis and diamond earrings by Amrapali worn by the Duchess of Cambridge. (More on those earrings, with an excellent close-up image, over here.)

The bracelet stack has also been pared way, way down: only one (the cabochon gemstone bracelet) was visible as Maxima posed beside her rose.
