Me neither, and I don´t think those are real stones

I guess it was bought/done to match that particular dress (beautiful one, btw)

I believe, that this is real, looking like diamonds and emerald drops on a velvet ribbon. As this is the pre-wedding dinner of the heir to the Spanish throne with all Royals over the World attending, I strongly assume, that this is real.
But. it may happen, that it is not hers - it already happened several times in the past (also with Infanta Elena) that they loaned some jewels. So my assumption is: a loan, but real jewels.
Bye Bine

Bine, it is unusual that the Spanish Royal Family loan jewelry, everything they wear is theirs or of the Family.

Both infantas have sets, usually wedding gifts from Arab monarchies, which have been seen few times. Jaime de Marichalar loved jewelry and gave several to his wife, his mother also made some loan to the Infanta Elena (like a spectacular diamond brooch that she had in the Danish wedding).

The brooch of the Infanta Cristina is of diamonds and emeralds, and was the gift of the ​​Countess of Barcelona for her wedding.

The Spanish Royal Family is discrete with their jewels. There are historical pieces not seen for years, and that are used only on very special occasions. There are also gifts that have been seen only once.

An Ard Ri it is said that diamond sapphire tiara (whole parue) belongs to the family of late countess of Barcelona. It probably was one of her wedding presents which she used to wear until she gave it to infanta Pilar. I saw photos of infanta wearing it during her pre-wedding gala dinner.

I have read that the sapphire tiara originates from the first Countess of Paris, grandmother of the Countess of Barcelona. But I have no idea, how creditable these sources were.

Infanta Margarita seems to own a small diamont tiara. Is there anything known about the origin of this jewel?

Yes I've read somewhere in the past that the tiara came to Spain with Princess Louise of Orléans mother of Princess María de las Mercedes of the Two Sicilies.Louise was the daughter of Philippe d'Orléans, Count of Paris & Marie Isabelle d'Orléans, Countess of Paris & Infanta of Spain.

Yes, that's the one. I forgot that it can also be worn with pearls. Here is a pic of her wearing it without pearls.

I agree with both: the tiara is better with pearls, and it would be nice to see the infantas at galas again. But not even Elena und Christina attend state banquetts anymore. Sigh. Will we ever see Pilar's and Margarita's tiaras again?
