Máxima's personal jewellery - part two : black and white pearl sets

Máxima has two pearl sets, that both consists of earrings and necklace. She wears pieces of both sets often and seem to be a favourite. The earrings can be extended with an extra pearl and worn in three different ways as shown below. The sets are likely a gift, perhaps from her husband. (pictures: Maxie)

Máxima's personal jewellery - part one : orange coloured jewellery

Since her engagement and wedding Máxima has build up a nice collection of orange coloured jewellery. It is my belief that these pieces are gifts from her husband Prince Willem-Alexander and that the collection started with her engagement ring which was designed by the Prince and contains an orange coloured stone. Likely she recieved more pieces after the birth of her daughters Catherina-Amalia and Alexia:

Earrings and brooch, first worn at the baptism of her eldest daughter Amalia (2004):

The same earrings, worn together with an necklace in 2005:
