I've been working lately on the tiaras worn by the Spanish Royal Family. Given all of the breaks in the monarchy over the past two centuries they no longer have very many tiaras. I was surprised to notice their lack of colored gemstones. The only tiara with colored stones currently owned by the SRF are the Niarchos rubies which barely constitutes a tiara in my opinion.

Here's my list of the tiaras worn by the Spanish infantas:

Infanta Pilar
Pearl & Diamond Loop Tiara
Sapphire Tiara

Infanta Margarita
Sapphire Tiara
Shell Tiara
Pearl & Diamond Tiara

Infanta Elena
Floral Tiara
Marichalar Meander Tiara
Prussian Diamond Tiara
She's also worn her aunt, Princess Irene of Greece's, diamond circle tiara but I don't have a post on it yet.

Infanta Cristina
Floral Tiara
Cartier Pearl & Diamond Tiara
Prussian Diamond Tiara
Shell Tiara

Unfortunately, I don't know anything about it's history. I've read places that it came from her mother's family but I've never seen a picture of the Countess of Barcelona wearing the tiara.

I wish that I had a clearer picture of Infanta Margarita wearing the tiara but she attends so few tiara events and even when she does the cameras are focused on other members of the family.

Thanks,goodness knows what will happen to it in the future,I can't see her children needing it as tiara events in Spain are quite rare of late!

Queen Victoria Eugenie of Spain wearing the Emerald Bandeau,I wonder what became of this and I'm assuming this too was sold or lost following the exile of 1931.

I think that these are all of the tiaras worn by Queen Victoria Eugenie of Spain. Only three are still worn by the current queen of Spain. Most of them have been lost with time, either sold or reworked into other pieces of jewellery.

Tiaras that still belong to the Spanish Royal Family

Fleur de Lys Tiara
Pearl & Diamond Tiara
Shell Tiara

Tiaras that were lost, sold, or inherited by other members of her family
Aquamarine Parure Tiara - still belongs to her descendents through Infanta Beatriz
Diamond Bandeau
Diamond Garland Tiara
Diamond Spike Tiara
Emerald Bandeau
Meander Bandeau
Strawberry Leaf Tiara - borrowed from her mother
Turquoise Tiara

What a wonderful collection Ena had!

I believe the Diamond Spike Tira was better known as the Cartier Chaumet tiara & that was indeed sold off.The photo of the Turquoise Tiara is infact that of the Strawberry Leaf Tiara that belonged to her mother, Her Royal Highness The Princess Beatrice and was not part of Ena's collection.

Yes, the Diamond Spike Tiara by Chaumet was sold by Queen Ena and then put up for auction again in the 80s.

I don't think that the Turquoise Tiara and the Strawberry Leaf Tiara that Queen Ena borrowed from her mother had anything to do with one another so I'm not quite sure what you mean.

They don't look the same to me. Here's the Strawberry Leaf Tiara on the left and the Turquoise Tiara on the right.

I am hoping that it either stays in the family or is given to HE Frederika de Maricilar......

This is one of my favorite wedding photos:
Which jewellery company made the tiara?

The Royal Order of Sartorial Splendor: Tiara Thursday (on a Wednesday): Infanta Pilar's Sapphire Tiara

This tiara is so beautiful. I love the design and I find it very regal and exquisite. Not sure if I love it upside down though.

Yes its a very delicate and beautiful rarely seen tiara,I wonder what will happen to the sapphire tiara in the future after Infanta Pilar passes as I doubt any of her children will have an need for it.

I do hope the King and Queen buy it and bring it back to the main line. They could certainly do with a few interesting tiaras.m Most of the tiara's worn by Queen Sophia were owned by her and not the crown, so we do not know what Letizia will get to use.

I agree wholeheartedly! The SRF could definitely use a tiara with colored gemstones in their collection as I do get a little bored of all of the pearl & diamond tiaras. I believe that Infanta Pilar has other sapphire pieces of jewelry that could be worn with the tiara.
Sapphire Brooch & Earrings
Sapphire Necklace & Earrings
Sapphire Pendant & Earrings

Pilar's sapphires are lovely. Hope they, in time, make it back to the main line. Letizia could do them justice.
