The Princess has both, many women in Oviedo or in Asturias have reproductions of these jewels.

The Cross of the Angels is a greek cross with two angels and is the symbol of Oviedo. It was realized in the year 808 for the king Alfonso II, and according to the legend two angels helped the goldsmiths who realized it.

The Cross of the Victory is according to the legend the cross of wood that the King Pelayo was taking in Covadonga's Battle, and that the King Alfonso III in the year 908 order to cover of gold and precious stones.

Both pieces remain in the Cathedral of Oviedo.

All these Greek Byzantine crosses are very interesting.Does anyone know their sizes and whether they are portable or not?

It might sound boring,but the floral tiara is definitely the most beautiful and elegant And it also suits her best,since it's small and Letizia also has a small face and head.Does this tiara belong to her?

I really like all these tiaras. The shell is beautiful with the large south sea pearl earrings so I'll think I'll choose #3

No it was won by Infanta Christina on her wedding day in 1997 and the Queen has also worn it on numerous occassions. I think it was a present to Sofia for her wedding but i cant remember who gave to to her

My favourite would possibly be the one she wore on her wedding day followed closely by the floral tiara. ive never beern a fan of pearls but the shell tiara is nice as well

Franco gave the tiara as a wedding gift to Sofia in 1962. At this stage JC & Sofia completely depended on Franco to eventually become Kings of Spain one day or at least to restore the Borbons on the Spanish throne. JC wasn't even Prince of Spain (only in 1969) = heir apparent so it was very wise not to reject the dictator's gift

I had no idea...I'm mostly surprised by Spanish people's lack of reaction to this.If only they were in Greece....
