Great last 'Queen' appearance in terms of jewellery - she can wear the regal statement pieces so well
Fully agree, what a statement appearance from Sofia!!! I doubt we will see Let zia in this tiara any time soon, if only for the reason that it would be completely overpowering her head.

To me, I saw sadness not aggressive statement. I always liked Sofia and felt so sorry for her miserable marriage. She seemed to have so much love to give and had to settle for expressing it to children and country. Now I truly believe she will become the best grandmother possible. She looked lovely and will always look that way. I believe Spanish history will be changed by this woman in some great way in future because of her strength and morals. Her husband's last years of sandals will be overshadowed by this lovely woman's deeds.

I presume this includes the Fleur de Lys tiara, Queen Ena's collet neckace and earrings, and some diamond bracelets. Is there much more in the haul?

Queen Sophia wore a lovely ruby and diamond pendant today, attached to her pearl necklace. Is there any information relating to its provenance?

I am so glad she wore that tiara. It's grand and perfect for a Queen. At the time, I think the last time she wore the tiara was in 2008.

I truly believe that some of Sofia's tiaras are going to be just too massive on Letizia's slight looks. They will over-whelm her. Some even looked too much on Sofia and she has a wider/fuller face.

Sofia's jewels at Frederik and Mary's wedding:

1 2 3 4

These jewels are so breathtaking. Especially the tiara. The earrings, diamond bracelets, and necklace are just as stunning as the tiara. I love the size of the diamonds of the earrings and necklace. I would love closeups of those rings.

Didn't the diamond necklace and bracelets belong to Queen Ena?

Queen Sofia has a fine collection of various pearl necklaces and earrings.Of all the Spanish Royal Ladies Queen Sofia and her sister in law Infanta Pilar seem to wear pearls.
