The people of Luxembourg celebrated their national holiday this weekend, and the grand ducal family wore loads of jewels for the occasion!

On Saturday, Hereditary Grand Duke Guillaume and Hereditary Grand Duchess Stephanie kicked off the festivities with a visit to Esch-sur-Alzette.

In the evening, a larger contingent of the grand ducal family -- Grand Duke Henri, Grand Duchess Maria Teresa, HGD Guillaume, HGD Stephanie, Prince Felix, Prince Louis, Princess Alexandra, and Prince Sebastien -- gathered for more celebrations.

Maria Teresa wore a long embroidered coat over a black top and pants for the occasion.

On her left ear, Maria Teresa wore a long gold earring featuring multiple hoops and a line pendant...

...and on her right ear, a much simpler gold earring with a small pendant.

On Sunday, Grand Duke Henri and Grand Duchess Maria Teresa were joined by HGD Guillaume, HGD Stephanie, Prince Felix, Prince Louis, Princess Alexandra, and Prince Sebastien for a Te Deum mass at Luxembourg's cathedral, followed by a concert. The ladies wore hats for the thanksgiving mass...

Grand Duchess Maria Teresa also changed her earrings when she swapped out her headgear. For the mass, she wore small drop earrings.

At the military parade later in the day, you'll note that she wore a major pair of gold statement earrings. Intriguingly, like her earrings the previous evening, these were also a deliberately mismatched pair, with a disc on one side...

...and a large diamond shape on the other.

Stephanie also changed her jewelry following the mass. For the service, she wore small pearl drop earrings...

Princess Alexandra wore classic pearls with her ensemble for the daytime events.

Tiaras were worn for the reception later in the evening at the Grand Ducal Palace.

Maria Teresa reached for the same tiara that she chose for the previous four (!) National Day galas: the Belgian Scroll Tiara. (Read about its history here!) She paired it with pearl drop earrings from the family vaults. Also worth noting: the embellishment at the waist of her gown appears to be part of the dress itself, not a separate jewel.

Stephanie wore an interesting mix of jewels, including the family's small floral tiara. (More on that one over here!) I think this may be the first time she's worn the tiara in public. She also wore one of the family's gorgeous diamond rose brooches. (More here!)

She paired the classic floral jewels with a pair of ultra-modern earrings, which she previously wore in a glamorous appearance at the Cannes Film Festival in 2017. (See our post on that event here!) I loved the earrings on that occasion, but the combination of jewels here is a bit of a head-scratcher for me.

Alexandra, on the other hand, went for a complete parure: the tiara, earrings, and necklace from the family's turquoise suite. (More on the set here!)

She also wore an impressive diamond solitaire ring on her right hand. Gorgeous!

As always, I'd highly recommend heading over to Luxarazzi for even more National Day coverage!
