The earrings are very elegant. Are they white gold?

I agree. Her hairdo looked really lovely. Usually I quite dislike the combination of tiaras and open hair... but somehow the Prussian tiara looks better with open hair.

This just cannot be true.
The last time she used the safety pin I thought this was a one-time mistake...
this time the safety pin seems to be ever bigger and even more obvious.

Seeing is believing!
Surely she can come up with something better than a safety pin adorned with a tiny diamond.

I do not believe that it is a normal safety pin, there are safety pin jewels, in gold or silver and sometimes with small decorations...

The bracelets are beautiful, but I think they don't match together.
Regarding to the safety-pin... it looks rough to my eyes.

According to the authoress of the article the seamstress of the Princess has taken a safety pin that costs cents of euro in a haberdashery and has put it there ... when if anyone looks at it in detail sees that it is a jewel she uses to hold the band, that will cost hundreds of Euros. If the Princess uses it it is because it is a jewel and for her it is like a clasp.

The contrast between the very ordinary safety-pin and the dress is funny, in all case I find that it isnít a big deal, itís only a pin

a safety pin still looks a safety pin, no matter whether it is made of gold and contains a tiny diamond or not. it remains an odd solution.

i am wondering why it is always letizia who comes up with these strange things, for instance i could never ever imagine queen sofia doing a safety pin solution. moreover, the srf has lots of nice clips and clasps at their disposal to attach a sash to a top that look much less disturbing than a safety pin. if there is one occasion on the agenda when a royal should look classy from head to toe it is a state visit.

The question is that of ordinary it does not have anything, is a golden and brilliant jewel.

It's a rather awful idea in terms of jewelry design.
IMHO it could be used as a 'fun' item on daywear and might turn out to be kind of charming.
But worn along with antique family pieces at state banquets, it's not funny at all and the joke ends up being on Letizia.
