Maxima of the Netherlands and King Willem-Alexander of the Netherlands, 55, visited Austria. On June 29, 2022, the Dutch sovereigns received the Austrian president and his wife for the traditional evening of thanks. The evening was held at the Wiener Konzerthaus, according to Histoires Royales. Austrian President Alexander Van der Bellen and his wife Doris Schmidbauer attended, along with Maxima from the Netherlands and Willem-Alexander from the Netherlands, a concert by the Nederlands Kamerkoor, according to Histoires Royales.
For the occasion, the 51-year-old queen pulled out of her closet her spectacular flowing cape dress with a bright red top. The wife of King Willem-Alexander of the Netherlands has already worn this flowing dress with a large diagonal black stripe in Portugal in 2019. It is a dress by designer Jan Taminiau. The latter is a Dutch designer whom Queen Maxima of the Netherlands often honors by wearing her creations. To create a perfect harmony with the beige of her flowing dress, Maxima from the Netherlands opted for a wavy hairstyle. The mum of Catharina-Amalia from the Netherlands, Alexia from the Netherlands and Ariane from the Netherlands accessorized her look with gorgeous earrings and a statement pendant necklace.

For the occasion of this prestigious evening, the wife of King Willem-Alexander of the Netherlands opted for this necklace with a very specific ruby pendant. According to Histoires Royales, “The pendant of the necklace is the central element of the brooch belonging to the adornment of the Mellerio ruby tiara”. Incidentally, the bracelet worn by Queen Maxima that day also featured a piece from the Mellerio ruby brooch.
