The jewel vault at the Palacio Real was looted during the RF exile so I'd imagine this yet unidentified tiara was either stolen or later sold off.

and a painting where she seems to wear the same mystery tiara.

Maybe it had to be sold during the exile? Or it was taken apart and the stones used for other jewels?
Thanks fior the closeup. No i agree that it is not the Loop tiaras. Perhaps it went to the descendants of her daughters.

The sapphire and diamond brooch and bracelet that belonged to the late Infanta Beatriz was sold off recently by the Torlonia family.

Amazing tiara. Still belongs to the ex Kings? We take long to see this tiara to Letizia.

To the best of my knowledge its still in Queen Sofia's jewel vault but I think it would look amazing on Queen Letizia.

Queen Letizia didn't have that many tiara events since Felipe's accession. There were only three State Visits from South American republics, for which the floral tiara was very appropriate, imo. And then there was the debut of her own new Ansorena tiara in Kopenhagen. I think that she finally wanted to wear the gift from her husband, and that she preferred to debut it before she debuts another borrowed tiara from her mother-in-law. So there wasn’t the right occasion wear to the Cartier tiara yet, but I hope that she will wear it once the State Visits from and to other monarchies get started.

As to the ownership, I don’t think that this is a problem. The floral tiara also belongs to Queen Sofia, it was a wedding present to her. The former Queen certainly wouldn’t mind loaning the Cartier to Letizia.

It is a lovely tiara indeed. It would be wonderful to see it back in use.


Further, to bring some colour into the Spanish tiara collection, would it not be great if the pearls could be interchangeable with emeralds (as originally designed) or with sapphires?

That would be great indeed! I would prefer emeralds, because that would be close to the original version of the tiara. Is it known how the original emeralds were cut? Were they faceted stones, or cabochons? From the pics I know I guess that they were faceted, but I am not sure.

If history repeats itself, the new queen may never wear them. Queen Mary still had many jewels that were never worn by QEQM. The jewels went directly to QE2 when QM died.

I wonder if this is another tiara of Infanta Margarita (maybe a convertible necklace?) or if it is the same as the first tiara you posted?

Well spotted Stefan,you maybe right.Pity tiara events for the Infantas have become a thing of the past otherwise we might have some better quality photos of Pilar's tiaras.

Thanks for those glittering pics! I think that they might have been taken at the pre-wedding of Infanta Pilar. Does anybody know? Those were glittering days when the jewels came out even in exile. The large aquamarine pendant is especially eye-catching. What a whopper!
