Great information and pictures in this thread!  Though I still have to say that the Spencer ring in your avatar might still be at the top of my list!

This thread is totally wonderful, a history lesson from the vantage point of jewels.  Princess Diana was so beautiful; there was no one like her.  Seeing these photos reminds me of what loss the world had when she passed.

Love seeing all these unique items - y ou have such a wonderful understanding Lady Am.  Thank you!Image

This thread is AMAZING...thank you for all of the info, LadyAmythyst! Seriously, I think I''m having more fun reading this thread than I did looking at the jewels in the Louvre (probably because this thread is more informative and there are no crowds)! Again, thank you for the reading pleasure! I''d love to read more...

My goodness!!! I can''t even imagine what all these tiaras are worth! And that diamond necklace...wow!!!

LadyAmy, thanks for starting the new thread! I did think this topic deserved a more prominent location!
When in doubt....don't.

Holy Moly, I love this thread.  Oh, the tiaras are so yummy, I just dream of wearing these parures.Image

Holy crap!! you don''t think they''d miss just one or those briolettes, do you?

What a fun thread, thanks so much and more please!

What a wonderful thread! What are the chances that I am some country''s long lost royal family member who has been saddled with a life of American peasantude? Maybe one of those tiaras is mine. LOL!!!

Great pics SanDiegoLady. I hadn''t seen some of those before. I like the one with the sapphires....

I thought this would be a timely picture...

This is Princess Mathilde of Belgium at the Antwerp World Diamond Center Gala on October 15th.

Wish I could get a better look at that ring and bracelet!

Mathilde just recently announced her pregnancy with her fourth child.

I think Mathilde looks great - she usually does. Considering the venue/event she could have gone hog wild with her jewels. But then again I doubt you''d want to be dripping with diamonds when seated next to Bob Geldof. Image Plus Mathilde doesn''t really seem to favor much ostentation in her style.

I see I''m not the only one crazy for royal jewels!  Whew!  I was a little worried, there! 
Princess Mathilde seems to have a garnet engagement ring - seems too dark to be a ruby.  Does anyone have pics of Princess Maxima of the Netherlands'' ring?  It''s an orange diamond - the royal family there is the House of Orange.
I''ll see if I can find some pics...


Post by Maryww » October 19th, 2007, 5:16 pm
Here''s a picture of Princess Maxima''s ring - I believe it''s set in platinum.

OMG! LadyAmythyst69 your historical knowledge is awesome! Did you say that you are a historian?

Post by LadyAmythyst69 » October 20th, 2007, 12:34 pm
Thanks Snuggles - Yes, I''m a historian - Art History and British History. Someday I''ll cobine the two and write a book.. Image

Crown Princess Maxima of the Netherlands attended the christening of her third daugher Ariane this weekend. She was wearing a lovely set of earrings and a brooch.
