Very similar indeed! To me the back horn seems to be longer in Letizia's pair than in the Mango pair. But that might be deceiving. It is difficult to tell if they are the same.

Ah, very interesting. From the front not especially impressive but when viewed from the side .... really makes for interesting jewelry. I really like them, they are unusual.

The earrings at the reception are from Coolook, designed by Mar Aldaguer, who is born in Mallorca.

I'm not a big fan of big earrings but that is very beautiful.

Thanks, Lady Finn! They are very nice, I think that they are these with green amethys: Pendientes Hydra Plata / Oro y Amatista | Coolook

Here are some good images of Letizia wearing them.

Also there were only two tiara events where both Sofia and Letizia attended without the floral being worn by either of them. For all other tiara events the floral was worn by one of the ladies.
The floral tiara also has historical importance and connections to the Royal Family. It was commissioned in 1879 by Alfonso XII for his betrothed Maria Cristina of Austria.

I think that's the Loop tiara? The Floral tiara is a gift from Franco and has no historic relevance for the family.

No, it's the floral tiara. The info was released to the press in 2013 by Casa Real. In Spanish forums there had been rumours that the jewellers in Madrid where the Government bought the tiara for Sofía leaked back then that it had belonged to Queen María Cristina. Until Casa Real confirmed it in 2013 it was only a rumour.

The Cartier Loop tiara's original owner was also Queen Maria Cristina, but this one never left the family.

Yes now I remember. I think they published the information after there was critizism about Letizia wearing the tiara to the Dutch inauguration.

Queen Letizia's Tiaras | The Court Jeweller

Excluding her wedding tiara, I love all of her tiaras. My favorite is the Floral tiara.

All tiaras very beautiful but my favourite Mellerio Shell tiara. The design is so different from the others.

Nice to see those diamond chandeliers again! I missed them for quite a while, but Letizia used to wear them a lot at gala events in 2009. Imo they look gorgeous with that hairstyle and the black garment.

On September 16 Queen Letizia wore her baroque pearl earrings again. They have been seen quite often lately, so they must be among her favourites. And since the queen likes to wear white, these pearls fit perfectly.
