Many thanks Zarzuela for the largest version of pearl' s necklace.

So, we can see that it's making with baroco pearls that it's very, very beautiful. I'm very found of baroco pearl necklace; it's not the most famous one, but they a true old fashionned charm very pleasant.

------------------------------------------------

For the Infanta Pilar's tiara, my theory it's the King who baught to her sister this somptous and very regal master piece: the other one very regal " the fleur de lys " looks difficult to bring for travel because its size.

As the event in Norway was important for the Kings we can imagine that the Queen want to go with a magnifiscent tiara and these of Infanta Pilar is; The question stills : loan or baugt ?

Juanita, I believe that this necklace is actually an order given by the Thai King to HM the Queen of Spain. It's the same necklace that she wore last February on the occasion of the Spanish State Visit.

If I'm not mistaken, there's a golden elephant hanging as a pendant in the necklace.

You can have a better view of it if you click this link:

As it was foreseeable the cena de gala was so tremandous that the Queen sofia has to wear a stunning tiara and the "flower of lys " it's the most represntative of the regal tiaras of the spanisk royal family.

It's seem that the gown of Sofia is very, very royal too.

About the tiara that Queen Sofia was wearing for the gala dinner in Noraway, I'm just reading this information in "Point de Vue ".
It's more a rumor than a true fact that King Juan Carlos would baught all the jewells belonging to his mother, the Countess of Barcelone 's inheritance. It's mean that in reality this fantastic pearls tiara which was wore during the life of the countess of Barcelone by herself, once by the Queen, once by Simoneta Gomez Acebo, sometimes by the Infana Pilar, belong since the King mother's death to the king himself.

This hypothesis seems to be the good one because never since the Countess of Barcelone 's disparition, we have seen Infanta Pilar to wear this tiara ( if we can to consider that she had the opportunity to do it )

Is anybody has informations about the repurchase of the" bijoux de passage" by the King ?

Yes, at some time has been commented that the King wanted to recover for the Royal Family, some of the most important pieces, which for the history and for the inheritances had stayed in other hands.
In case of the tiaras it is normal, they are not useful jewels on that someone who does not come to acts of gala could put (but it is the day of the wedding). The tiara of pearls Cartier was of the Countess of Marone and the King recovered it.
Probably with this piece the same thing has happened. The tiara was not in use from the year 90, none of the daughters-in-law of the Infanta Pilar has used it, they have used other one smaller that she has, so I imagine that she would come to an agreement with her brother, in order that the jewel was going on to the collection of " jewels of passing ".
I imagine that the family prefers that these historical jewels stay in the family, and that does not happen since there has happened recently with the jewels of the sister of Queen of England that they have finished in an auction, in hands of a stranger.

A close-up view of the tiara, necklace and brooch that the Queen wore to the Norwegian gala. I think this is the same brooch whe used for the Infanta Elena's wedding, but she added a lovely pearl drop.

According to Hola, the tiara was originally given to Queen Maria Cristina from King Alfonso XII. No dobut, a very historical tiara.



Picture taken by myself from Hola magazine.

It seems to be a diamond.. i'm not sure

http://s2.supload.com/image.php?get=009648176rq.jpg
And this one is a blue stone... maybe aqua marine or safire but i don't think so. It's too dark to be an aqua marine and too light to be a safire

Anyway, i'm just sure that you're not talking about the same ring.

Here's another guess. It could possibly be an opal, too.
