HRH doesn't need to wear new ones,she has plenty of older pieces crying out to be worn in her jewel chest

Especially not when the new bracelet looks almost identical to the old bracelet.

The State Visits have died down since then, I assume because of the economic situation. Its the government who calls them, not the Royal House.
You are right, I forgot about the Qatar visit because I only noted the tiara appearances.

I understand about the awful economic situation. But I always thought that state visits aren't about glamour and fun, but important political events that usually come paired with economic missions. And wearing jewels which are there anyway doesn't cost anything.

But since she had it right after her 40th birthday, it probably was a gift, so it is understandable that she wears it.

Did we ever figure out who designed these beautiful earrings? I know she has several pairs of earrings from YANES (:::Yanes:::), but I couldn't find this design on there. If someone has any info on this particular pair, please share it. I have been hunting for so many years for the designer of these earrings.

Some of her earrings from YANES are:

Worn in 2004 at a pre-wedding event in Denmark:


A similar one to her crescent earrings, but same collection


Similar to her starburst earrings


Her aquamarine or blue topaz chandelier earrings


I think her star earrings are also from YANES


All photos from YANES.

Thanks for posting all of the above,it seems that Letizia has a deep fondness for those Star Earings and rarely leaves home without them!

Maybe I've missed something in the translation but did Letizia mention in this interview that she 'dislikes' jewellery ?

Yes, she mentioned that she dislikes jewelry and only wears jewelry when absolutely necessary.

That makes the story of her yet unworn new tiara even more strange. Why would her hubby give her a tiara when he knows that she doesn't care for jewellery? Will we ever see it worn? Does it really exist, or is it a publicity stunt of the jeweller? Or did Letizia just say this because she wants to appear down-to-earth during crisis times?

I've often wondered about this tiara if it is real or just another media rumour,I think Letizia prefers smaller jewels to rather large pieces.There's nothing wrong with that,keeping it simple might work for the Princess,I just wish she'd wear a brooch every now and then & give those star earings a well deserved rest in 2013.

Every one and then there will be events that "force" Letizia to wear a tiara, because dress code demands it. If the tiara exists, we will see it, but maybe not in her PoA days.

Yes but once she is Queen and both she and her daughters attend State Banquets she should also use the the bigger tiaras and some of the necklaces with them, otherwise we would not see much of the Family Jewels. .

I don't think there will be too many of those events for some time,hopefully we will see the tiara before we all forget about it

I guess they are her favorites for a personal reason. We all seem to have a certain item that brings a sensual moment to mind and delight in wearing. Even in my older age, remember the moments and take extra pleasure when wearing certain pieces of jewerly that only I know the meaning of.
