Yes, that's the beautiful Cartier tiara that was made for Queen Ena. She left it to Infanta Maria Cristina and after the Infanta's death it was worn by Queen Sofia. Generally it is assumed that King JC bought it back, but as so often there is no offical information about the terms under which the tiara went to Sofia.

PS. I hope it will be seen worn again soon.

Yes, she inherited her mother's tiara. Her nephew Juan Carlos agreed with her to recover the tiara to the Royal Family.

Queen Sofia alresdy wore the Cartier Pearl tiara in the early 1990's when the Infanta was still alive.
I also wonder when she and her sister Beatriz got the tiaras the inherited from their mother. As far as i remember Infanta Beatriz wore the aquamarine tiara at one of the greek pre-Wedding Balls (don't remember if 1962 or 64) but certainly when her mother was still alive.

Infanta Beatriz wore the 'empty' circlet tiara at JC pre-wedding in 1962. Was it the first time that the new setting was seen?

I think that the other lady in the row is Infanta Maria Cristina? I am always confused about this floral tiara. Is it true that it has emeralds and was sold by the Infanta?

So, if Beatriz received the aquamarines and Maria Cristina maybe received the floral tiara, then did she own the Cartier tiara as well? Maybe she borrowed it from her mother?

Is it a relgioius Wedding or only a civil one. If ther later then probably no tiara at all.

No tiara, which was to be expected, imo. The groom is divorced, afaik, the marriage was not annulled by the catholic church. So they could only have a civil wedding and those usually don't have tiaras.
Lula posted first pics here: Infantas Pilar/Margarita and Family Thread: June 2014 -

When was the sapphire tiara seen for the last time? Was it the first wedding of Beltran with Laura Ponte? I would love to see it again.

It is a pity that we don't see the Infanta's in tiaras very much. But recently Portugal got a new President. In the past when portugals Preisdents paid State Visits to Spain also the Infantas Pilar and Margarita attended the State Banquet's. Lets hope they will also in the new reign because i think the new President will soon be invited to a State Visit.

That would be great Stefan! But tbh I'm a bit pessimistic. I doubt that even Infanta Elena would attend (as that would stress the absence of Cristina).

Is this pic from the Portuguese visit in 2006? It is interesting that the Infanta had borrowed the Mellerio wave tiara instead of wearing her own.

Edit: I should have noted that this is Infanta Margarita. I can't find a pic of Infanta Pilar at the moment.

Infanta Pilar's tiara at the 2006 visit was barely visible because of her white hair and the quality of the pics. But it was not her diamond and sapphire tiara.

I found this one now, it is the sapphire tiara, but the stones look strange. It might be due to the lightening.

I think that these are pictures of Infanta Cristina and Infanta Elena at the same State Visit. Is that correct?

I found today this beautiful picture of some of Doña María de las Mercedes' wedding presents and have trouble identifying some of them - the necklace on the botton left of the pictire, the wing brooch next to it, the pair of clip brooches on the right of the tiara (befind the pearl and diamond bracelet), the large round pendant with coloured stones and the diamond earrings above it (an eariler version of the long earrings worn at the 1953 Coronation, perhaps?). Can someone help me identify these, please?

The photo comes from an aricle in the Telegraph about Chaumet's exhibition Une Education Sentimentale.
