As for Elisabeth: I would not be surprised if she will receive something new, a gift from the Belgian nobility or something like the dainty tiara of Princess Claire & the glued pearls. The most appropriate gift would of course be the bandeau of Queen Elisabeth but I would not be surprised -at all- if that one will leave the main line of the Belgian RF too.
At what time/milestone would she likely receive such gift?

The Belgian Nobility will always keep its Tradition

For Princess Mathilde their tiara was not ready She wore Queen Paola's tiara as loan.

Elisabeth already received a gift from the Belgian nobility for her 18th birthday: a necklace not a tiara. I assume that the nobility would have asked beforehand what kind of gift would be appreciated. If the BRF indicated that the princess would like a necklace, that probably means that the tiara question was already solved within the family. I really hope that this means that she will receive that art deco tiara of Queen Paola. But maybe Mathilde will pass down her laurel tiara. Tbh, I do not expect them to acquire a new tiara for Elisabeth, because the BRF has, for a long time, shown that they do not prioritize jewellery.

I'd really love to see the Spanish tiara again, it is grand and so versatile. But as Marengo already stated above, the provenance is problematic and the BRF might want to avoid any controversy about it. And I don't think that they keep it stored away for Elisabeth because the tiara would be a bit too much for such a young princess. And it would be inappropriate for her to wear grander jewels than Queen Mathilde.

No reason for that.

Based on the story, when she received a tiara, Fabiola gave it to the jewelers who supposedly discovered that those stones were fake (not the whole tiara, just center stones), but they were quickly replaced, so Fabiola never wore this tiara with fake stones, but with real replaced ones.

As noted by Hans on the RJotW MB: Princess Margaretha of Luxembourg wore Queen Fabiola's diamond daisies at the wedding of her daughter Marie-Anunciata:

Do we think that Princess Margaretha inherited them?

She wore already earrings of Queen Fabiola when she was still alive.
If this Daisy are hers that means that Fabiola gave jewels to all her nieces, but Margaretha was her favorite.

I am not sure when the last time Fabiola was seen in a tiara but it's possible it was during a state visit from Spain in May 2000:

A year later at the State Visit from Sweden she wore the same tiara for the Return Banquet.

Tiara, necklace and aquamarine lost for ever.
If she gave one of her jewels to Princess Elisabeth , her parents should not buy a new tiara.

Princess Elisabeth is a granddaughter to Queen Fabiola's brother-in-law.

This illustrates the distance between Elisabeth and Fabiola.

It would be fantastic if Fabiola left it to her. But at the same time I can completely understand when Fabiola made other arrangements.

I believe so. But then who has them? The foundation she left them to, what does it do with it? Why not lending the set to the Royal Family? I would acquire even more value (auction-wise) if many queens have worn it.

"The Royal Palace announced this morning that the execution of the last will and testament of Her Majesty Queen Fabiola has ended. Also comes an end to the reckoning of the many nieces and nephews in Spain of King Baudouin's consort. So they do not inherit a cent of Fabiola's fortune, which is estimated to be 100 million euros.

It is not yet known what the Queen's Relief Fund will do with all that money.
Yesterday, the Château du Stuyvenberg and the official buildings, which were at the disposal of Queen Fabiola, were already officially returned to the owner, the Donation Royale.

With the settlement of Fabiola's legacy, the House of Her Majesty Queen Fabiola has now also been formally dissolved. The handful of still working for the House, according to the Palace, ended their services.

The inventory of the Château du Stuyvenberg was discussed for a long time. “Which item belonged to the private right of the late Queen and which item did not. Objects that were part of the Donation Royale were -of course- returned.”

Queen Fabiola's jewelery collection and correspondence with King Baudouin are also the property of the Queen's Relief Fund. It is not clear if items will be placed in a fund that will make the jewels available to members of the royal family."
