The Dutch state visit to Sweden continued on Wednesday with both daytime and evening events, and today, we’ve got a closer look at the glamorous royal jewels worn for the evening concert.
The return event for the state visit was a black-tie concert hosted by King Willem-Alexander and Queen Máxima for their Swedish royal counterparts at Stockholm’s Concert Hall.
Queen Máxima wore a modern Iris van Herpen gown from her collection for the concert, paired with diamonds and emeralds.
We previously saw her wear the dress with diamonds and emeralds (including several different pieces) for her 50th birthday concert celebration in May 2021.
This time around, Máxima wore her own diamond and emerald earrings (recently borrowed by Princess Amalia for Prinsjesdag) with additional emerald pieces. She suspended the family’s incredible cabochon emerald pendant from a diamond necklace. The pendant was a gift from Queen Emma to her daughter, Queen Wilhelmine, to celebrate the birth of her daughter, Queen Juliana, in 1909. Máxima also wore an emerald and diamond ring on her right hand, and I believe the gold bangle on her right wrist features emeralds and diamonds as well.
Queen Silvia (standing behind King Carl XVI Gustaf in this photograph) also opted for a green-and-emerald theme for her outfit for the concert.
She wore the Bernadotte Emerald Earrings with her dark green outfit and pinned the Diamond Lozenge Brooch to her bodice. (All of the royals are also wearing small pins featuring ribbons in various colors; they’re miniature versions of the orders that each of them wore for the banquet on Tuesday night.) Silvia also wore bracelets on both wrists, including a double row of pearls on her right wrist.
Crown Princess Victoria wore an intriguing white gown with a cape detail and feather trim.
She accessorized with diamonds and pearls: diamond and pearl drop earrings and a diamond necklace with an added pearl pendant. I believe she’s also wearing the silver cuff bracelet she’s favored recently on her left wrist.
UFO No More tells us that Princess Sofia is wearing a gown that needs very little accessorizing: a dramatic sequin-encrusted gown from the designer Ida Lanto. I can tell that she wore earrings for the banquet, but in every photograph I’ve seen, they’re mostly hidden by her hair. They certainly look like statement pieces, from the detail I’m able to see!
