The earrings are nice but that necklace is horrible,but I don't think we'll have to worry about Letizia wearing a necklace.. sacré bleu!

A close up with a better view to the earrings: http://media.zenfs.com/es-ES/homerun...b09280952129f3

Agree that the necklace does not share the earrings' level of loveliness, for once I'm glad she didn't bring the matching necklace along

Also, the bird motive is very Japanese, so they're a good choice. It's so great that Letizia has decided to open the jewels case and get out the not seen for long jewellery. Exciting to see if she has recovered something for Japan, maybe we'll get some surprise at the gala dinner?

ETA: and another pair of earrings for the afternoon reception at the Spanish Embassy: http://www.belgaimage.be/#/image/112611179

Gala Dinner:

The earrings need a better view to identify them, but you heard it from me first: they're these from Queen Sofia as usual (they have a matching necklace that she should have worn indeed):

ETA: the bracelet is not new, they're the two bracelets from the passing jewells that she debuted last month, only worn together on the same arm: http://www4.pictures.zimbio.com/gi/K...3oHHxS2otx.jpg

The ruby necklace is really not very beauiful. Queen Sofia has several ruby necklaces. Wonder why they did not break one like this up and made a nice diamond and ruby Parure including tiara from the stones

I am not sure there are enough stones in this necklace to meaningfully contribute to a ruby and diamond parure

Glad to see her break out the jewels! She should have worn the sapphire necklace with the blue dress

The bird necklace looks very much 1980s, imo. It wouldn't well anymore nowadays. Also, Letiza wore the earrings at a day events, when such a large necklace would have been too much.

I'm very fond of the lovely floral tiara. But it's over-used. Let's hope for something else in London this summer.

Queen Sofia and Queen Letizia must have had a good rummage through the Zarzuela jewel chest and decided what was being handed over to her daughter in law.

My hunch was correct on the floral tiara its such a versatile piece and really suits Letizia,can anyone identify her brooch at the gala dinner?

I'm now reading in Foro Dinastias that the bird rubies earrings and necklace set was a design by Salvador Dalí. Not sure if that's true, I've also read in the press that they were an Arab gift to Queen Sofia. Maybe it's just some legend made out of their strambotic design

But they certainly could pass for Dalí's jewels. His designs were...well, as "interesting" as all his artistic work:

For a State Visit to the Emperor and Empress of Spain I did expect Letizia to pack out with pearls, for an example the Mellerio diamond-and-pearls diadem or the big diadem with the pearl buttons. It is all so mweh... for me. I expected more.

They definitely look Arab, which is often a style that borders to 1980's Edelkitsch (Dallas, Dynasty) I am sorry to say.

Letizia's jewellery has been perfect so far at the visit. At the gala dinner:

Yes, the jewellery is totally on point! Letizia has really started to pull out the bling!

Better view on the jewellery of the state dinner, you could be right, too bad Sofia's hairstyle is always in the way!!

Joyas de pasar, Sofia's version

Today at the meeting with the PM, the long not-seen rubi and diamonds earrings that she wore to the wedding of Denmark's CP couple:

Glad to see them again, they are a stunning pair.

I love that Letizia is exploring Sofia's jewellery box and wearing them. Some great earrings on this Japan visit
