Deep blue has always been the colour of royalty. The Kingdom of the Netherlands has a history with this blue shade: remember the dress designed by Jan Taminiau worn by Queen Máxima on the day of the coronation on 30 April 2013 to match her royal blue sapphire tiara? That fine regal colour is the eye-catching element of these 18 karat yellow gold hoop earrings from the Bonebakker Regalia collection. Add the characteristic shape of the gems, the princess-cut like it was used in the Royal Crown of the Netherlands made in 1840 by Adrianus Bonebakker, and an exquisite piece of jewellery is the wearable result.
Each hoop earring contains 8 princess-cut sapphires of 0.55 ct and a rim of0.12ct of diamonds, making it a crown in itself.
