Jewels of the Duchess of Alba

This is my first post but i had been a reader for several months and this site is fabulous.The Duchess of Alba, the woman with most titles of nobility than any other in the worls, had several reported jewels as the crown of Eugenia de Montijo,Empress Eugene of France...her great grand aunt; and a diamond bracelet she inherited from her godmother Queen Ena of Spain,..and many other apparently fabulous jewels.I tried several deep searches on the net but only references were founded, not any picture.Those anyone in the forums knows something about this or better, had any picture? Thanks a lot! Sorry for my language mistakes, im puerto rican and my native language is spanish.Thanks! :)

Thanks a lot for the pics..at least in my believe it is the Empress Eugene de Montijo tiara and the bracelet is the one from Queen Ena..looks gorgeous as a tiara! Thanks a lot..the House of Alba is very renowned in Spain and very rich indeed..they supposed to have several other historical and precious jewels! Lets see if someone find others..Thanks..:)

yes, they are too big, and too busy.

By the way, the Duchess had to sell the russian tiara due to financial reasons.

Well the post is from a year ago so things could have changed since then, The Duchess of Alba owns many beautiful pieces, she owns three tiaras that we know of and a convertible bracelet, 2 diamond rivieres a few emerald necklaces, pearls and everything in between a collection worthy of a princess!

Very rarely, for example at the dinner offered to the Prince of Wales in Spain the Duchess went very low key, no major jewels, although she could of easily outblinged Letizia and Camilla!
