Re: Queen Emma's diamond tiara
It always struck me that Queen Beatrix especially in the first two decades of her reign seemed to avoid to wear the favourite jewels worn by Queen Juliana. This was especially so for the Mellerio ruby set which was not worn for a very long time after the state visit to Germany in 1982. Perhaps these jewels were too much Juliana's "signature pieces". That might have been the reason for replacing the three central diamonds in Queen Emma's floral tiara by three rubies. The tiara looked nice this way with the dress.
