3 Fascinating Things About Queen Maxima’s Stunning Pearl Tiara

The Netherlands’ Queen Maxima stepped out last night in a lacy, marigold-colo off-the-shoulder Valentino gown accessorized with the world’s most prestigious extra: a gorgeous, crazy glamorous tiara. This one is commonly known as the Württemberg Tiara, and, no surprise, it has a lot of history in the royal fam.

The common name is a misnomer. The name it typically goes by reflects the fact that it was long thought to have been a wedding gift to Princess Sophie of Württemberg when she married into the Dutch royal family in 1839. However, pics found later showed that it was created for Queen Wilhelmina in 1897 by the royal family’s official jeweler, Royal Begeer.

It was a former queen’s favorite. Queen Maxima’s mother-in-law, former Queen Beatrix, wore the tiara when she was married in 1966 and the night before she abdicated the throne, in 2013.
