The Dutch royals have one of the most impressive jewelry collections in Europe, and today, we’re taking a look at an appearance from a tiara worn by more than one family bride.
Princess Margriet of the Netherlands, sister of Princess Beatrix and aunt of King Willem-Alexander, wore a festive floral gown for a diplomatic reception at the Royal Palace in Amsterdam in April 2019. The navy blue dress featured a bright pink flower print and a pink lace overlay on the bodice. She wore pink shoes with the gown and carried a navy blue clutch bag.
With the gown, Princess Margriet wore antique diamonds and pearls. The highlight of the jewels was the Pearl Button Tiara. Margriet has long loved the tiara: she chose it to wear on her wedding day in 1967. Queen Maxima wore a different setting of the tiara, with diamond stars in place of the pearl buttons, for her wedding in 2002. And Princess Beatrix chose the tiara for an important day in her life as well: her inauguration as monarch in 1980. Not a wedding, but also a very important ceremony of commitment.
With the tiara, Margriet wore a lovely pair of earrings with diamond studs and pearl drops, plus a beautiful three-stranded necklace of pearls.
She finished off the look with rings on both hands, including a pearl ring on her right hand, and a diamond, pearl, and gold bracelet on her right wrist. Additional gold bracelets were stacked on her left wrist.
