Lovey tiara...almost too big for her! LaRae
Great tiara with spectacular earrings and superb makeup. She is looking exceptional here. (I think the tiara size is perfect for her).

Maybe we'll get to see more bijoux now, that could be the silver lining of the Easter clouds.
I agree with that - stunning tiara, but a bit big on Letizia, but that goes for most tiaras of the collection. IMO its still better suited than the Fleur de Lys.

Regarding 'in your face' - I think it's rather the opposite, quite predictable that Letizia would come out with a new piece of Sofia's jewel box, kind of a sign of appeasement between the 2 Queens, like 'gracious gesture of the old Queen towards the new Queen'.

The tiara is stunning and sits well.
The dress would be better for me if it were a white or pale.
I find the pearl spots too fussy.

yes, i read online it was part of the joyas de pasar, but indeed i remembered only one tiara in that set, so i guess my sources made a mistake :)

needless to say, i like the actual tiara in the joyas de pasar better than this one. even if it is huge, it seems to complement letizia much better.

Queen Letizia wore the Cartier Pearl and Diamond tiara for the first time tonight. Queen Victoria Eugenie had this tiara made by Cartier in 1920. Over the years, she had some emeralds adapted to the pearls of the tiara and sometimes exchanged them. The emerald as well as the collier were sold later and now the tiara is only worn with pearls. Victoria Eugenie gave the tiara to her daughter, who wore the tiara quite frequently. At some point, (90´s) King Juan Carlos bought the tiara from his aunt and was worn by Queen Sofia. In 2010, Infanta Cristina surprised the royal watchers when she wore the tiara to the wedding of CP Victoria. Since 2010, the tiara was no longer worn, until yesterday.

Its really a tiara that should be reserved for the queen or queen mother along with the fleur de lys .

The tiara suits her really well, I like it much better than the other big one.

I don't think there's any coincidence in her wearing a tiara so closely related to Queen Sofia. A great piece and it suits her well. For someone so small, she wears tiaras extremely well

How is the diadem "so closely related to Queen Sofía"? The last time she wore it was 14 years ago. The last wearer of it was the Infanta Doña Cristina...

I agree it's better than the Fleur de Lys, I feel that tiara is too fussy for Letizia's style. The architectural style of the Art Deco Cartier tiara suits her much better.

And of course you're right about the 'in the face' comment, that was poorly worded on my part. I think it's a sign of collaboration between the Queens, which is also a nice silver lining.

Queen Sofia wore this Tiara the last time in 2007. The first time we have seen the Tiara on Q.Sofia in 1987. She wore this Tiara for 15 State Visits and Oficial Pictures. Maybe people call this close to Sofia because she wore it mainly in the 2000s. ( (80s 4x-- 90s 4x --2000s 7x)

Another Tiara Debut for Queen Letizia! | The Court Jeweller

The tiara and earrings are exquisite. I hope this will be a frequently worn tiara.

This tiara is stunning. She wears it really well.

The earrings go well with it, too.

I guess, if you want to divert attention from certain things, you wear something new (to you) and shiny.

At least this one doesn't swallow her the way the ugly one she wore in the UK did.

Do you mean the Sapphire ones for Guildhall or the Diamond earrings she wore for Gala with Queen ElizabethII?

Letizia wore a pair of gold earrings for the return dinner last night. I think it was a gift from the Portuguese president from the state visit last time.

CP Mary wore the same (or very very similar) earrings a few times in 2014.
