Until now they haven't been worn by Queen Mathilde so their whereabouts is not known.
Queen Fabiola had at last 5 drope shaped aquamarine's with she also sometimes wore on a simple diamond chain.

The State Visit to the Netherlands, coming week, is the best possibility for Queen Mathilde to pack out with her jewels. The "problem" is that the Diadem of the Nine Provinces is her very best diadem.

In size the Spanish Wedding Gift Diadem is bigger but it is lesser in carat power and most likely also in quality, in comparison with the Nine Provinces.

Maybe Queen Mathilde will wear some aquamarines (King Baudouin's gift) or some diamond fleurons (from the Spanish Wedding Gift) on the second evening, the music gala in the Muziekgebouw aan 't IJ in Amsterdam.

Lets hope they reappear in the near future as it would be a shame if they were sold off .

The Antwerp diamond brooch also belonged to the late queen dowager,hopefully it to is still with the Belgian royal family.

To me the Wolfers tiara was a Belgian Present and went to the Belgian Queen.
For the Spanish tiara ans the aquamarines, the Queen had other Nieces she loved very much, wait and see..

But she got the spanish tiara because whom she married: The King of the Belgians. And what use would her spanish nephews and nieces have with such a big tiara. They would probably sell it. Better to give them smaller items like bracelets, earrings etc. if she wanted to give them Jewellry.

I really hope we see the Spanish tiara next week on the State Visit and that its ownership is still with the Belgian Royal family.

The Royal Order of Sartorial Splendor: Tiara Thursday: Queen Fabiola's Spanish Wedding Gift Tiara

While I love the smaller version of this tiara, I dislike the design in it's largest form. There is something about the design I don't like.

It's beautiful in the so called smaller. The leafs are large enough, without the extra base, to make it an impressive tiara. The large version the leaves look like odd points on tips. The smaller version is a more cohesive look. Similar to a floral tiara.

Its my personal favourite Belgian tiara and I really hope its still with the royal family.

It so perfectly suited the late queen Fabiola who oozed regality but I hated it worn as a necklace.

As far as I remember Fabiola received two frames from Mrs Franco.
She wore the coronet at the beginning and stops wearing the other base for always.
Where is the Coronet base ?
Who find our the red stones were fake stones , the belgian Court jeweler of that time?
