Dutch Tiaras

Queen Maxima's Sapphire Tiara

Queen Maxima’s Sapphire Tiara








Queen Maxima wore this sumptuous diamond and sapphire tiara for the inauguration ceremony of her husband Willem-Alexander as King of the Netherlands. Until very recently, its history was shrouded in obscurity. In November 2013, prominent Dutch gemologist George Hamel revealed the results of research conducted into the origins and early history of this piece. His findings were made public at the Silver Museum in Schoonhoven, Holland’s ‘Silver City’. It would seem that each stone in the tiara was purchased brand new, and it is highly probable that the tiara was made in Amsterdam by Maison van der Stichel.
