Definitely agree An Ard Ri.
There was alot of talk about the country's finances. But your wedding rings? And the jewelry you already own?

It's called the wretched economic state Spain has been in for the last few years. I would rather have a Princess/Queen wearing the same thing jewelry wise, and tiny and discreet at that, than going all out and rubbing it in the Spanish peoples faces.

The fact Letitzia has started bringing out more statement looking earrings the last few months is a hint to me things are starting to look up in Spain. If not, then they'd still be in their cases.

She has had to tread a very difficult line these last few years w/her jewelry, i think she's done a very good job and should be praised for it. It might be boring for us, but sometimes doing the right thing is exactly that.

Wasn´t there a discussion about an allergy regarding her wedding rings?
Also I remember the dreadful Picture at the day of the Inauguration, which showed Letizias Hand after the thousands of handshakes.... which was completely red and swollen..... maybe that is the reason for no longer wearing her wedding band.
CP Victoria seemed to have a similar Problem, you didn´t see her with her wedding band the lat 1-2 years either....

I don't think that we can totally blame the economic situation for it. It's much rather Letizia's personal style and preference. Remember the phase when she only wore the small star earrings? No Spaniard would have blamed her if she had varied her earrings a bit more. She simply didn't like to, imo. And I doubt that we'd ever see her as bejewelled as eg. Maxima. Even if the Spanish economy became the strongest in the world she wouldn't change her personal style that much.

I'd rather see Letizia not varying style ore recycling items that see any other royal wear new expensive jewels every single day.

I like them in this picture but not the other for some reason. Likely has to do with the lighting.

I loved them with her Opera ensemble and gorgeous plaited updo that really allowed them to shine but also looked spectacular with her simple but elegant satin top. I absolutely loathed them with the dark ensemble with her hair down. It just didn't look good up with loose hair and a dark ensemble. It seemed to drain the colour both from the earrings and Letizia herself.

My least favourite Spanish tiara but possible the most worn one by members of the family.Queens Sofia and Letizia as well as the Infantas Elena, Cristina and Margarita have all worn this historic tiara.

The shell tiara has been worn by many family members, but it is not worn very often. I made some (incomplete) statistics about how often the tiaras have been worn since 2004, the year Letizia joined the family. I’m sure that I have missed some tiara appearances, but the numbers give a general idea:

floral tiara – 26 outings
Prussian tiara – 14 outings
fleur-de-lys tiara & and Q. Ena’s Cartier pearl tiara – 6 outings each
Mellerio shell tiara – 4 outings
Niarchos ruby tiara – 1 outing

Queen Letizia has only worn it once, and also of Infanta Christina and Infanta Margarita I have seen pictures of only 1 event each. And of Infanta Elena I have never seen a photo wearing it, but there is a family portrait painting where she seems to wear it.

I don’t really dislike the shell tiara. It is quite nice, only the others (except for the rubies) are nicer. The Spanish tiara collections is not very large, but it does not contain many misses (except for the rubies).

I like a lot the Shell tiara because it's classical yet the design is quite unique, I love the danglig pearls and the shape remind me of ocean waves. It's a nice uncommon desing among royal jewells.

But I think it's not an easy one to wear. Unlike the floral that looks great on anybody and with any hairdo. This one is not flettering to every face and requires a slightly full, waving hairstyle. That's probably why it looked so good on Queen Sofia and why I don't like it that much on Letizia. I wish she would wear it again with a different hairdo.

It must have been year since she wore necklaces. At least she started to wear different earings again after that rather long phase when she would only wear the tiny star earrings. I haven't noticed her wearing bracelets lately, did she stop wearing them as well?

It must be 5 years since we saw Letizia wearing a necklace,she did wear a bracelet I think on a visit to Morocco last year and we got the fleur de lys brooch at the recent state visit. I've given up on her ever wearing her rings again.
