We're still on hiatus from our normal weekly roundup of royal jewel news -- events are due to slowly start ramping up again next week, so fingers crossed that we'll have lots of sparkle and glitter to discuss then! In the meantime, I thought you'd all enjoy a collection of stories about royal jewels that have been making the rounds this week. Happy reading!
New Info on Máxima's Tiara
Dutch writer Eric Schoonhoven has posted new information about the magnificent sapphire and diamond tiara worn by Queen Máxima at her husband's inauguration in 2013. Although the piece was often attributed to Mellerio, maker of one of the family's ruby sets, Schoonhoven writes that gemologist George Hamel believes it was actually made by the Dutch jeweler Maison van der Stichel.
