I can't see very well which tiara she's wearing here...The bandeau tiara of queen Elisabeth, the base of the tiara of the nine provinces?
It is the base of the nine provinces, as far as I know Elisabeths bandeau tiara was never worn by Fabiola as it went to Paola.
I hope that the queen will leave all her jewels for Mathilde (apologies if anyone is offended by this, I sure wish the great Fabiola a happy & longer life!!! & I admire her very much - as I did her husband). If her collection is to be fragmanted as well (by going to Astrid, Claire, Luxembourg princesses or even spanish cousins from her own family) the belgian RF will have even less (3) tiaras in the future! As the Luxembourg & spanish cousins live out of the limelight and as it seems that only the children from Mathilde and Phillipe will be the core members of the RF in the future, they need a nice collection. Especially as the we have not seen that the jewels of the late princess of Rethy went back to the RF. I believe she sold those wonderfull items, which is a shame. I surely expected 1 good tiara/necklace to return.. but helas. A still think it was very inappropriate from Leopold to give his morganaut wife such important jewels & they were lost to the crown forever. Especially Lilian receiving jewels which belonged to the late Queen Astrid is unforgivable, those should have gone to her children!!!

Sparkling jewelry for a sparkling lady, but this lady is so beautiful and elegant that she outsparkles the jewelry.

This is going to be a horribly morbid question to ask, but I have always wondered this. Does anybody know what happens to all of her jewels once she passes on? Will it revert to the crown, or be divided up amongst her family?

That is for Fabiola alone to decide. She can do with them as she pleases, as they are not property of the crown but of Fabiola personally. One can only hope she especially the most substantial jewels will go to Mathilde. But the Queen seems to be on very good terms with Astrid and Marie-Astrid & marguerite of Luxembourg as well.. and to her spanish relatives as well. So it is totally up to her. I expect that the larger pieces will go to Mathilde (and hopefully they will be put in a family-foundation)

I think they will probably go to Mathilde, since Philip is kinda her favorite nephew (since they didn't have children who were born).

Thank you Marengo and Solange. Are all of her jewels her private property? I know that most of them are, but I thought some of them belonged to the crown. Also, does Belgium have a family foundation like some other royal houses do? (off the top of my head I know Sweden and Denmark have these)

No, such a family foundation does not exist in Belgium. The jewels are private propertry, and that's the reason why, over the years, so many of them have been lost (to other branches of the family) or sold.

This might not be the place to mention this, but her husband was a fine looking man in those days
