Pearl necklace and pearl and diamond brooch and earrings. It's the same brooch she wore at Leonor's baptism. Last pic: A close up view of the ruby and diamond necklace and matching earrings.

You are right Paula, this tiara is gorgeous, and the big diamond necklace and earrings aren't bad either. In this picture, at the Danish royal wedding in 2004.

I agree with you crisiñaki. And also yes, The Queen wears some rather interesting jewellery for private wear but she can certainly carry it off. On some people it would look too fussy.

Does anybody has any information about the necklace that the Queen wore in Thailand? I find it a very interesting piece of jewellery.http://img239.imageshack.us/img239/9985/13000152vv.jpg

I may be wrong but it looks like the collar that goes with the Thai order she's wearing. I remember Queen Beatrix wearing something too similar for it to be a necklace(?).

Sorry for my question, but why Spanish Ladies wore only four tiaras? What has happened with tiaras which were wore by Queens Isabela or Ena?

The Spanish Royal Family was in exile, some jewels lost itself, others insisted and others were distributed between the members of the family. The Queen only have five tiaras (Flower of Lys, Cartier, Melleiro, Flowers and the tiara of her weeding).

If you refer that use few some tiaras, possibly it is because that of Cartier and that of the Flower of Lys are big. And the Melleiro, it is simple and beautiful, probably have some problem and because of it they do not use it very much. Though the Queen has used them in some occasions.

A close up view of the diamond necklace the Queen wore in the gala dinner in Jordan. I always thought there was a bracelet attached to the necklace, but from the close up view you can see that it is not a bracelet but it is part of the necklace itself. Pictures from Hola.

Actually the Queen owns five tiaras, and you will see the Princess of Asturias and the Infantas wearing them. Let's not forget about the tiara that Infanta Elena got as a gift on her wedding with the Duke of Lugo from Jaime's family so in total there are six tiaras that the Spanish Royal Family owns.

It's quite amazing that Spain spent centuries plundering the treasures of the New World and there are only six tiaras in circulation among the Spanish royals! Why so few?

The most simple answer would be that the other tiaras and jewels dissapeared in the aftermath of the Spanish Civil War that sent the Royal Family into exile.

I wonder why the Queen almost never wears the Fleur de Lys tiara, because I really like it. She would look even more elegant wearing this tiara and the Russian diamond necklace that originally belonged to Queen Ena. So many nice diamonds! Photo from Corbis.

Picture from ANB.

I'm so happy that the Queen decided to wear this fabulous tiara for the Norwegian gala after so many years of being "hidden" in a jewellery box... it's just beautiful!

I read in another site that the tiara QSofia used at the norwegian gala dinner actually belong to one Infanta Pila? Is that correct?

I don't recall QSofia using this tiara in the last few year and it's beautiful tiara - if it's her, she shld use it more often!

yes, that tiara belongs to Infanta Pilar, the King's eldest sister who inherited it from her late mother the Countess of Barcelona, it originally belonged to Queen Maria Cristina (mother and regent for Alfonso XIII, the King's Grandfather) and it's the same tiara Pilar and her daughter Simoneta wore on their wedding days:

This is Simoneta on her wedding day in 1990

She probably doesn't wear it much because it's probably very heavy, it looks heavy anyways. It's right up there with sone of the biggest tiaras I have ever seen.
