Queen Maxima wears ‘fabulous’ tiara – almost identical to Queen Elizabeth’s special diadem.

Queen Maxima of the Netherlands donned the stunning Mellerio Ruby Parure Tiara which is almost identical to one of Queen Elizabeth’s most special diadems.

Alexandra Michell, gemologist at Prestige Pawnbrokers Hatton Garden, explained: “The Burmese Tiara is a fairly modern addition to the Crown Jewels, in comparison to the extensive royal collection. The estimated value of this symbolic piece is £7million.”

Although it is not known how much the Dutch Mellerio Ruby Parure Tiara is worth, it is believed the British diadem owned by the late Queen is more valuable.
