The royal ladies of the House of Orange sparkled on Monday in Amersfoort for the annual King's Day Concert. Here's a look at some of the jewels we caught a glimpse of at the event.

Queen Maxima of the Netherlands wore relatively few pieces of jewelry for the concert, but the ones she chose packed a sparkly punch.

The show-stoppers of the outfit were her diamond cluster earrings.

These are, I believe, two of the diamond cluster elements from the top of the Stuart Tiara. The full tiara's toppers are, from the center radiating outward, the grand pear-shaped Stuart Diamond, and then a pair of large diamond clusters, and then a pair of smaller diamond clusters. (See photos of the tiara here!) I think these are the smaller pair. You'll note that there's a small loop at the base of the earrings from which pendants can be attached.

These are the same earrings she wore last week at the Diplomatic Gala with pearl pendants...

...and at the Cape Verde state banquet using the larger clusters as pendants. (Those clusters can also be worn separately as button-style earrings.)

She also wore her golden bracelet with cabochon stones, which is engraved with the names of her family members.

And on her right hand, she wore her cocktail-style ring set with diamonds and a pale pink gemstone (probably either a kunzite or a morganite).

Back to this Monday's jewels -- Princess Beatrix attended the concert in one of her favorite colors, royal purple.

She paired amethyst, diamond, and pearl jewels with her outfit, including an amethyst floral brooch, amethyst drop earrings, and a pearl necklace with an amethyst clasp.
