The Queen has two types of jewels, which belong to the Spanish Royal Family and those that are of her property as personal gifts. The majority of the jewels that belong to the Royal Family, belonged to the Queen Victoria Eugenia, how for example the most important tiaras, the necklace of big diamonds with its earrings, a necklace of big pearls ... and some pieces more. The " jewels of passing " are a few certain, most valuable pieces, later the Queen has other jewels that belong to her, but it would not be strange that any of her personal jewels also go on in the future to this collection. The jewels of the Family are of the King and later they will pass to the Prince; in this case they pass from wife of King to wife of King ... they cannot go out of this circle ... I imagine that the Infantas will recibe other pieces that are out of these jewels, since the sisters of the King received.

In this forum there are several articles about the topic, because recently one has written a book.

I think Queen Sofia is the only Queen who will graciously hand down jewels belonging to the crown, to the future queen if she is alive when Felipe will be king. I think Sylvia, Sonja and Maria Theresa will hold on tightly to any jewels they wore before allowing the next Queen\Grand duchess to wear them!

The jewels that belong to the Spanish Royal Family, do not belong to the Queen Sofia, are of the King Juan Carlos, because of it several members of the family use the same jewels. The Queen Sofia will do with her particular jewels what wants, but on the jewels of the family will give the orders the future Felipe VI. She will be able to continue using them, the Infanta Leonor will use them, but if Letizia is the Queen, she will use the most important pieces. The pieces of the family pass from Queen to Queen.

Definitly, but history has seen that some Dowager Queens kept for their own use, their favourate peices, even though their daughter- in-law was entitled, to wear them. For instance the mother of the last Tzar( Maria Feodrovna?), The late queen mother had a particularly hard time, and ERII, let her mother hang on to her favourate ones, and so did the late GDuchess Josephine charlotte.

But the swedish Jewels are not owned by the Queen the are owned by the Bernadotte Foundation so i think when Victoria succeeds to the Throne she has the right to use all Tiaras of the Collection, i think if Silvia is still alive then the will share the major Tiaras for Example Victoria wears the Leuchtenberg-Sapphirs and Silvia the Nine-Pronge-Tiara and i think in Norway King Olav V. decided that the major Tiaras (like the Emerald Parure, the Desiree-Tiara and Queen Mauds pearl-Tiara) should always belong to the reigning Monarch so Mette-Marit will probably have any right to use them after Haakon ascends to the Throne.

I love that necklace too, and it's been quite a long time hidden in the Queen's jewellery case. I think it would look beautiful on Letizia's neck!
By the way, those earrings belonged to Queen Victoria Eugenia as well, the middle diamond seems quite big, and it's sorrounded by smaller diamonds.

That is my very favorite piece among the Spanish jewels and I think Letizia would look wonderful wearing it. Sofia really has the regal look to carry off that tiara and necklace set. Thanks!

Did Queen Sofia inherit any jewels from her mother Queen Fredrerika, that are now part of the SRF collection of jewels?

About this tiara known as Prussian Diamond Tiara or Diamond Greek Key Tiara.
This tiara originally belonging to Sofia's grandmother, princess Viktoria Luise, daughter of the last German Emperor. The tiara was originally a gift to her grandmother - Viktoria Luise, from het father - German Emperor on her wedding in 1913. When her daughter, princess Frederike, became engaged to King Paul of Greece, she gave this tiara as a present to her daughter. Queen Frederika gave her mother's tiara to her daughter.

We've seen the Queen wearing the fabulous diamond necklace of Queen Victoria Eugenie very few times. Here, in London, at the party hosted by the parents of Princess Marie Chantal before her wedding with Prince Pavlos.

Besides the dark color, if that was a saffire shouldn't be more brilliant?
May be, as you said zarzuela, it can be dark topaz.

The accesories and the gown are just perfect.
