With two state banquets and lots of other royal engagements on this week’s calendar, we’ve got a ton of royal jewels to enjoy! Don’t forget to vote for your favorites in the poll below!
Queen Mathilde of the Belgians wore green, gold, and black statement earrings on Wednesday in Brussels for a visit to the non-profit organization FratriHa, a support, awareness, and information platform for parents and siblings of people with disabilities.
Queen Margrethe II of Denmark made a state visit to Germany this week, and she arrived for the first day of engagements wearing jewels made of gold and set with diamonds and blue cabochon gemstones.
For a state banquet at Schloss Bellevue in Berlin on Wednesday, Queen Margrethe wore the Pearl Poiré Tiara and its matching brooch, which both originally came from Germany. She completed the look with other pieces from the married parure: the Khedive of Egypt Necklace and Earrings.
For Thursday’s second day of engagements in Germany, including a visit to the Pierre Boulez Saal in Berlin, Queen Margrethe wore the brooch and earrings that she recently debuted in Greenland.
On Thursday evening, Queen Margrethe wore more royal jewels with German roots for a reception at the German Historical Museum Berlin. The diamond jewels included the Baden Palmette Tiara, a classic diamond riviere, the diamond floral earrings that belonged to Hereditary Princess Caroline of Denmark, and a diamond ribbon brooch.
Back in Denmark, Crown Princess Mary wore a pair of diamond floral stud earrings, plus a gold brooch with a horseshoe and hound theme, for the Hubertus Hunt in Dyrehaven on Sunday.
In the second big state visit of the week, King Willem-Alexander and Queen Maxima of the Netherlands made a state visit to Norway. For her arrival, Queen Maxima wore diamonds and emeralds, including her own diamond and emerald earrings, Queen Emma’s Emerald Butterfly Brooch, and the bracelet from the Dutch Emerald Parure.
For the banquet at the Royal Palace in Oslo on Tuesday evening, Queen Maxima wore Queen Emma’s Sapphire Tiara with several other diamond and sapphire pieces, including the Sapphire Figure-Eight Earrings and Queen Emma’s Sapphire Bracelets. On her bodice, she pinned one of the Dutch diamond ribbon brooches, and she used a cluster from her modern tanzanite suite as a pendant.
For the daytime engagements during day two of the state visit, including a reception for the Dutch community at the harbor in Oslo, Queen Maxima wore pieces from her collection of citrine jewels, including earrings, a cocktail ring, and the large bracelet. The gold chain seen here has a gold disk pendant engraved “Love, Mette,” and many have presumed that this was a gift from the Norwegian crown princess.
Queen Maxima wowed in an unusual gown by Claes Iversen for Wednesday evening’s concert at the Munchmuseum in Oslo. She sensibly kept her accessories to a minimum, simply wearing her emerald-cut diamond ring and the stud portion of Queen Wilhelmina’s Diamond Earrings.
For engagements (and selfies!) in Trondheim on Thursday, Queen Maxima wore a pair of diamond floral earrings.
The King and Queen weren’t the only Dutch royals with engagements this week. For a visit to the Boerenbondsmuseum in Gemert on Wednesday, Princess Beatrix of the Netherlands wore a favorite gold and silver necklace, plus a pair of charming gem-set earrings designed to look like violets.
On Tuesday, Queen Sonja of Norway wore a blue and brown ensemble with silver-toned earrings to welcome the Dutch royal couple to Oslo.
Later, for a museum visit the same day, Queen Sonja changed into a different outfit, accessorizing with a necklace made of polished brown beads.
For Tuesday evening’s banquet at the Royal Palace, Queen Sonja wore the tiara and jewels from the Norwegian Emerald Parure.
For Wednesday evening’s concert, Queen Sonja wore the diamond and gold earrings, necklace, and bracelet from her Modern Gold Parure.
Crown Princess Mette-Marit and Princess Martha Louise of Norway also both participated in the first day of the Dutch state visit. Here, during the official welcome ceremony at the Royal Palace, you’ll spot Mette-Marit wearing classic pearl drop earrings, and Martha Louise wearing pearl earrings and a delicate diamond brooch.
Both princesses were also present for Tuesday evening’s state banquet. Crown Princess Mette-Marit wore her Diamond Daisy Bandeau, plus her Diamond Daisy Earrings with pearl drops. She also borrowed the Royal Order of Victoria and Albert Bracelet from her daughter, Princess Ingrid Alexandra, who received the jewel as a confirmation gift from Princess Astrid. (Apparently Astrid has also gifted the badge’s bracelet fitting to the young princess, or at least loaned it to Mette-Marit for this occasion.)
Princess Martha Louise wore the Norwegian Amethyst Tiara for the banquet, pairing it with Queen Sonja’s modern suite of amethyst and aquamarine jewels.
On Wednesday, Crown Princess Mette-Marit wore gold hoop earrings with a cross detail and a lovely floral brooch for a government luncheon during the state visit.
On Wednesday, Queen Letizia of Spain wore a pair of classic gold hoop earrings for an event for the FMBBVA Foundation at La Vela Auditorium in Madrid.
Shining metallic jewels were also chosen by Crown Princess Victoria this week. She wore modern silver earrings with a twist for a visit to the Center for Diabetes at the Karolinska Institute in Solna on Tuesday.
The British royals were out and about this week as well. On Tuesday, the Duchess of Cornwall wore a crystal poppy brooch and her favorite pearl drop earrings to attend the annual commemorative service at St Bride’s Church in East London to remember journalists, camera-crew, and support staff who have lost their lives on the frontline.
Also on Tuesday, Camilla wore the same earrings and brooch, plus her Kiki McDonough Apollo Necklace, for a visit to the Royal British Legion’s Poppy Factory in Richmond.
The same pearl drop earrings and poppy brooch, plus a stack of delicate gold bracelets, accompanied Camilla to a poetry recital and tea party for children and care home residents at the Royal Geographical Society in London on Wednesday.
On Thursday, Camilla attended the 93rd Field of Remembrance at Westminster Abbey. She wore her pearl drop earrings with the gem-set badge of The Rifles for the Armistice Day event, which also included a stop inside the Abbey to lay a floral tribute on the Tomb of the Unknown Warrior.
The Duchess of Cambridge wore her sapphire and diamond cluster earrings on Wednesday at the Imperial War Museum, where she officially opened two new galleries, The Second World War Galleries and The Holocaust Galleries.
At Windsor Castle on Wednesday, several members of the British royal family gathered for a reception honoring winners of the Queen’s Awards for Enterprise. The Princess Royal wore her seed pearl necklace with her sapphire, gold, and pearl drop earrings, and used a sparkling brooch to anchor her paper poppies.
The Countess of Wessex wore a golden poppy pin and a pair of diamond hoop earrings for the Windsor Castle reception.
The Duchess of Gloucester was also present at Windsor for the reception, wearing one of her favorite outfits: an orange dress paired with Princess Alice’s emeralds and pearls. She also added a second diamond necklace to the ensemble.
Princess Alexandra was at the reception as well. She wore a poppy pin, plus several pieces of her favorite jewels: her diamond and pearl cluster earrings, her pearl choker with the geometric diamond clasp, and her diamond clematis brooch. She also added several rings and a pair of bangle bracelets on her right wrist.
