The Royal Order of Sartorial Splendor: Tiara Thursday: Queen Victoria Eugenia's Aquamarine Tiara

I much prefer the original version of this tiara. I think it's absolutely stunning! The auqamarine version is nice but it's not one of my favorites.

I rather prefer the new version; it's quite elegant and versatile, and the aquamarines could probably be swapped for other stones - emeralds, rubies or pearls.
The original looks a bit like beauty contest crown - and not a very good one at that.

ABC is a more reliable source for these topics. Most of the jewels of Queen Victoria Eugenia, were inherited by her two daughters, so probably the bracelet is sold by one of the cousins ​​of the King.

Subastan una joya millonaria de la Reina Victoria Eugenia - ABC.es

Don Juan got some jewelry from her mother, but those jewels are now owned by the King and are used by Queen Sofía. If the infantas Pilar and Margarita have some historical jewel are inheritance from their mother.

It would be nice if this bracelet was to 'find its way' back into the Spanish royal jewel chest.

However given Spain's economic woe's I don't think its very likely at the moment.

If the bracelet goes up for auction is probably because the king did not want to buy it. Often family members offered the jewels to him before auction them. For example, the King bought his aunt Cartier tiara.

The Royal Order of Sartorial Splendor: Tiara Thursday: The Marichalar Tiara

Not a fan of the design of this tiara. I really dislike the base circles, and the Greek Key design mixed with the laurel wreath middle. One of my least favorite tiaras in the SRF.

Yes I agree with you there,its design doesn't do it for me.I'm happy however that Elena retained the Marichalar tiara for her own use following her divorce.
