Those are the three bracelets DoM was writing about!

This is the first time I see these 3 bracelets clearly and I find them quite cheap-looking. But it's a nice gesture, since she included her little niece, too.

I think I have to disagree, they dont look cheap looking at all. I actually think its really nice that she wears them (but not on state visit dinners).
You can get similar but diamonds instead of letters. I have a pair and I must say it isnt cheap, each diamond is 4-6 carats in different shapes.

Does anyone know who designed them?

They are very similar to a bracelet I have, same finishing and same gold chain but then I guess anybody can do it.

I too have to agree that they are not cheap looking. I do miss seeing them though, I thought they were wonderful and very thoughtful. As far as the designer goes, I haven't a clue.

I miss all her jewerly. Princess Letizia just doesn't seem into her jewels lately...and she has some gorgeous pieces. Hmmm, don't know why!!Maybe with the economy she is toning things down. Although I can't say I know much about the economy in Spain!

I am missing substancial pieces as well..... same tiara during the entire galas last year.... no necklaces ..... always MUCH more downtoned than OK for a CP. Would like to know, how much "influence" she has on the jewellery box of Queen Sofia......
In general I have the impression, that she changed her (gala) jewellery style towards large (and impressive) diamond earrings, bracelet & (potentially) tiara. But as most of the time the earrrings are hidden in her hair, she looked "downsized" in terms of jewellery.
I would wish for more glitter in 2010!!!!!

The SRF are very restrictive with "state" jewellery (the "wow" pieces), even Queen Sofia hardly wears her 3 top class tiaras but uses one of the other 3 pieces that she shares with Letizia, who did not get her own tiara after marriage. Therefore it is no surprise that Letizia usually ends up with the least important tiara, the Prussian tiara, that is brought in by Sofia and has nothing to do with the SRF.

Unlike eg the nordic CPs or female royals in general who look like decorated Christmas trees at times, Letizia has few, but expensive and obviously personal related jewellery, what suits her appearance. She hardly ever wears pieces that are also used by Sofia what gives the impression that the Queen of Spain has a firm grip on her jewellery box.

Many thanks, Duke. What a shame, that Sofia seems to be so strict ...
Well, she already did wear some more impressive jewels from her mother in law sometimes, i.e. the diamond /emerald collier or the diamond collier (QM wore at her own wedding)..... Letizia has also worn the 2 other "smaller" tiaras in the past already, so that´s why I am wondering, what made her so "reluctant" to more creativity in jewels.... But in case she is simply not "allowed" to get access....

The Princess has taken earrings, necklaces and brooches that belong to the Queen in several occasions, but they are personal jewels of the Queen Sofia. The big jewels that the Queen uses (the important tiaras, the necklaces of diamonds and pearls, the bracelets), are those which belonged to the Queen Victoria Eugenia, they belong to the King and theoretically the use is exclusive for the Queen of Spain. The Infantas have not taken these jewels, only in her wedding Infanta Cristina could take the diamond earrings.

My impression is, that the SRF is deliberately toning down their appearance because there is a strong republican movement in the country. They don't want to fuel the anti-monarchist discussions by appearing ostentatious. It is not just Letizia who is constantly wearing the same small tiara, also the Queen hardly ever wears anything other than the floral tiara, which is also quite small. Last year she only wore the ruby tiara in its small version once. So it is not just Letizia being kept short. For us jewellery fans that is a great pity, but politically it seems quite wise to me.

I agree Tilia, I was frustrated to not see Letizia in any of her beautiful jewels lately but maybe that is what has been agreed the RF should do. I dont see how it makes any difference but then again... what do I know, we don't have a Royal Family in the US!!

You are right, it doesn't make a difference to the royal finances, since the historic jewels are always there, whether they are worn or not. But I guess that toning down their appearances makes a difference to how the public perceives their royal family. After all, we royal jewellery fans are a tiny minority in the world. Most people would just see all the bling-bling and they might think that those royals are just rich, spoiled and lazy.
When it comes to the real goodies in the Spanish vaults, I am hoping for the big Swedish wedding this summer. They really should get out some of the bigger tiaras and some nice necklaces. I would like to see Letizia with the Mellerio shell tiara again, which is gorgeous, imho.

Thank you for this wonderful photo gallery! Letizia owns a beautiful collection of earrings - I'm keen on her pearl earrings in particular. She should have chosen one of these stunning pairs to wear in Germany. Her appearance required some nice jewels as well IMO.

Thanks LadyFinn for the gallery. Letizia has such elegant jewels, I miss seeing her in them. I can't understand why she cant wear a diamond cross or something, it seems ridiculous. I bet the people who are giving the pressure are still wearing their jewelry! But, I guess who needs the grief!!

Today's necklace is nothing special IMO, just like anything else.
