Bold Jewelry for Queen Maxima

For a series of outings in the Netherlands this week, Queen Maxima has worn a range of jewelry -- from the super bold to the completely minimal.

On Tuesday, Queen Maxima started off her day with an engagement in Amsterdam.

She attended the Mental Health and Psychosocial Support Conference at the Royal Tropical Institute.

While attending the conference, Maxima spoke with representatives from various NGOs and health care providers.

For the conference, Maxima wore a camel-colored top with matching trousers. A large sparkling floral embellishment was pinned to her shoulder. She also wore a beaded bracelet stacked with her watch.

I'm not sure whether the crystal design is an independent accessory or part of the top itself, but it appears that, either way, the earrings were designed as coordinating companion pieces.

Here's another view of the large, pear-shaped earrings.

Maxima also sported a slender gold bangle on her right wrist.

Gold jewelry was also part of Maxima's ensemble for an engagement later in the day. Maxima traveled to The Hague for the presentation of the annual report state of small and medium-sized enterprises of the Dutch committee for entrepreneurship at the Nieuwspoort Press Center.

For the presentation, Maxima wore another neutral-colored outfit, accessorizing this time with oversized gold jewelry. The accessories included a (very!) large pair of earrings and a torque-style necklace.

Here's another angle on the rather enormous earrings. I hope they're lightweight!

The day before, Maxima visited Schiphol to attend the fifth Global SME Finance Forum, which also focused on global development of small and medium-sized enterprises.

In contrast to Tuesday's bold jewelry looks, Maxima chose to wear no earrings at all on Monday. What style of earring would you pair with this red blouse and jacket?
