...and Infanta Margarita with the sapphire tiara. Infanta Pilar also wears an beautiful pearl choker and what seems to be a diamond clip brooch on the sash. And look at the bracelets and earrings! Both infantas knew how to carry off their jewels.

Such a shame we rarely get to see them,Infanta Pilar really has an impressive jewel chest.

This was at the State Visit of Queen Elizabeth II. to Spain. Seeing that the Count of Basrcelona was present wonder if also the Countess was and if yes which tiara she wore.

Wasn't the Countess wheelchair bound ,maybe she didn't attend the State Banquet?

At that ime she as alrerady wheelchair bound despite that she attend quietr some Events. For example she also attended the Wedding of her grandchildren. But as her diamond and pearl tiara was worn by Infanta Pilar at that Event i guess she did not attend.

I have only ever seen the Countess of Barcelona with 4 different tiaras: the loop tiara and the sapphire tiara that were worn by her daughters for the State Visit, the fleur-de-lys tiara of the passing jewels that are for the Queen, and the Mellerio shell tiara which Queen Sofia received as a wedding present.

I really can't imagine that the Countess would have loaned her Cartier loop tiara to her daughter, if she had attended the banquet. I don't think that I have ever seen a picture of the Countess at a State Banquet.

I'm not so sure that this really is Maria de la Mercedes' pearl necklace. In this one all pearls seem to have the same size, while the ancient pearls of Maria de la Mercedes are graduating in size.

I don't know about their fate, but they are two different ones. Were both of them wedding gifts to Ena? Do you know who gave them?

Thank you, duke of poliganc!
That site has some other nice pics of her jewels, like the fleur de lys tiara, diamond rivieres, or the small crown and the beautiful pearls from King Alfonso XIII. Very yummy!

Queen Victoria Eugenia sold off a lot of jewels during her exile and also to pay for the wedding of Juan Carlos and Sofia ,I wonder if these are still in a vault or sold off?

The ladies of old were aware that the colour of the gems wouldn't show on b/w photographs. So while they wouldn't mix the gems for events, they sometimes mixed them for formal portraits.
