Stacking jewels never looked so chic.
Look, it’s no secret that Queen Rania Al-Abdullah is our style icon (and has been for some years).
We’ve echoed her penchant for classic white shirts, we’ve sourced where some of her pieces are from, and now we have a new shopping list to write based on the Jordanian royal’s most recent appearance.
The queen has joined King Abdullah II in Switzerland for this week’s World Economic Forum, where she’s been meeting with global figures such as Argentina’s First Lady.

However it was a particular dinner at the Davos-based event that really caught our eye.
Just check out that exemplary juxtapositioning of jewels:
The royal, who often sticks to classic diamond drops, donned several earrings, including a chunky silver cuff and a triangular design by Beirut jeweller Ralph Masri.
The directional diamond-encrusted number lent an uber-contemporary edge to Queen Rania’s emerald silk dress by Gabriela Hearst, and we’re going to be Googling silver cuffs for the rest of the afternoon.
The royal also made sartorial waves during a long day of meetings, where she and King Abdullah sat down with German Chancellor Angela Merkel and Saad Hariri, President of the Council of Ministers of Lebanon, to name just a few.
Pairing a silk turtleneck blouse with a red midi skirt, the flash of purple lining added just the right amount of jewel tone to the boardroom-ready ensemble.
Later that day, Queen Rania met with Google’s CEO, Sundar Pichai, to announce the launch of a new learning platform for school children in the Arab world.
The Edraak initiative, developed by the Queen Rania Foundation for Education and Development with funding from Google, will eventually roll out free online courses for students from kindergarten to grade 12.
مع الرئيس التنفيذي لشركة جوجل ساندر بيتشاي اليوم. بعد النجاح الذي حققته منصة إدراك للتعليم الالكتروني للبالغين منذ إطلاقها في عام 2014، يسرني أن أعلن عن إطلاق منصة تعليمية الكترونية جديدة مخصصة لطلبة المدارس في العالم العربي بمبادرة من مؤسسة الملكة رانيا للتعليم والتنمية وبالشراكة مع جوجل دوت أورغ. توفر المنصة حاليا مساقات لمادة الرياضيات للصفين السابع والتاسع وسيتبعها المزيد #تعليم #الأردن #حب_الأردن #دافوس With Google CEO, Sundar Pichai, earlier today. After the successful launch of our adult-learners platform in 2014, I’m excited to announce Edraak’s new online learning platform, catering to school-aged children across the Arab World! An initiative of the Queen Rania Foundation for Education and Development in partnership with Google.org, the K-12 Edraak platform launches with maths for grades 7 & 9, with much more to come! #WEF18 #Education #Jordan #LoveJO #Davos #Switzerland
“We cannot wait for generations of children to grow up in darkness, vulnerable to extremism and hopelessness,” the royal said at the launch event.
“A child denied an education isn’t just a tragedy for that child; it leaves the rest of us vulnerable. But the future doesn’t have to be this bleak – not in this age of innovation.”
Just further proof that she’s a philanthropic icon as well as a style one. We can’t wait to see what else is in store from the royal and her foundation in 2018.
