There was a little brooch further downn on the Jacket, Or was this part of the Outfuit?
But a simple necklace like a pearl necklace would also have been nice. But Letizia never wears them for daytime Events.

That looks like it was holding it all together.

Letizia has on rare occasions thought outside the box and has worn a brooch or jewels of a queen ,like last at last years Pascua Militar.

I am not fond of the necklace, but I thought the earrings were very nice, and ought to be used more.

I suppose one could consider a diamond and sapphire necklace a bit 'too much' for a day time event? Let's hope that now the Queen has re-discovered the earrings she will wear the necklace soon too. Are there any photos known of the late Countess of Barcelona with this set?

I have never seen a picture of the CoB wearing the set.. i doubt we will see the necklace in near future, she wore alot of earrings but never the matching necklace, we just saw two pearl necklaces and a diamond collet in 5 years as Queen.. i think we will see her wearing the joyas earrings and bracelets during most of upcoming gala dinners..

Its taken Letizia 15 years to dig out the Countess of Barcelona's earring I doubt hold out much hope of ever seeing the necklace again.

brilliant to see these beautiful earrings again after such an absence - I have mentioned before on these forums how I wanted Letizia to bring these jewels out into the public sight again (she presumably has worn them in private - as they were an engagement gift from Felipe)

Lets hope we don't have to wait the same length of time to see them again - now for the necklace! Fingers crossed

From Paris Match, an article plus pictures of the ring silver gold plated Letizia wears the last year. Apparently it is a gift from her daughters, bought with their pocket money.
The strange thinkg is that she wears it in almost 2 or different fingers, which seems impossible for normal rings. Unless she has 2 or 3 sizes.

It's probably one of those open rings that you give a squeeze for it to fit the finger you want it on.

This also the first time Letizia is wearing a tiara in a official photo.

Makes sense that her daughters bought the ring for her and that she wears it almost all the time - very cute. Even though the ring is not to my taste it is very special to Letizia and I love the fact she wears it to all manner of formal and every day functions

I really wish she'd also wear some of the rest of her rings every now and then,the wedding ring must have been lost as it hasn't been seen in over 10 years and she didn't wear any of her other rings on any grand events like on the kings proclamation day.

It seems Letizia removed the velvet band at La Buena. Thank good.

Imo Letizia is looking good in the Fleur de lys, its big-yes-but not like luxembourg empire or the Dutch Stuart.. Its also nice she choose a different Tiara for official picture as her mother in law who never wore the FdL in a official picture, just the Cartier Diamond, Shell, Floral and Prussian

I agree, she has a couple of good rings. While i understand her sentimental feelings i dont think its suitable for official events, i mean i never wore the macaroni necklace in public (yes thats a stupid comparison)

Queen Astrid of Belgium once arrived at a banquet with a piece of string tied around her wrist. When someone asked her a bit disparagingly about it she replied that it was the most precious thing she owned since her son, the future King Baudoin, had given it to her when she came to say goodnight before leaving. Letizia might be queen but I'm sure that to her, as it was to Astrid, being a mum is more important.
