I remember reading this somewhere, i think its a kind of personal taste..

And im sure she received a couple of rings as a gift during last 15 years.

I will never understand Letizias jewel choice

They were mums that wanted to wear gifts from their children. I'm surprised that it sounds so strange to someone.

I just can talk for myself but for mee i dont like it because it looks ugly, maybe i would not complain if the ring would be more classic and not gold..For me its not a problem she is wearing a gift of her children but during a gala dinner it looks out of place imo and im sure L&S wouldn't be upset if she took off the ring on big occasions. somehow i got used to the ring

Really nice to see the pearls again though I thought they looked tighter last time round?

Has she become ill. That she suddenly wears a necklace for a daytime Event. Why does she that not more foten. For importter Events like State Vists or the National Day for example.

Ansorena made a updated Copy of Letizia "Princess Fleur de Lys" Tiara without pearls and more diamonds. It looks much better but still not my favourite. https://www.ansorena.com/sites/defau...?itok=VHAXw9KD


They also made a "replica?" of Maria Christinas Cartier Pearl&Diamond Tiara. Just a Question, is it confirmed, the Tiara was made by Cartier or could it be a Ansorena Tiara as well?
https://www.ansorena.com/sites/defau...?itok=cHA2QSRr


Just for fune more Tiaras on the Ansorena webpage

https://www.ansorena.com/sites/defau...?itok=I2fcJyBg


this one looks like Enas Meander Bandeau

Its the design of the Princess Fleur de Lys tiara that I don't like ,its not a tiara for a queen but a nice starter for the Princess of Asturias or an Infanta.

It looks much better, less like a toy tiara. I would ove to see it worn though it is not likely we will have a tiara occassion any time soon.

Is the update for the tiara that Queen Letizia is using or do they own a copy? Or is the tiara that Queen Letizia is using a loan, like for example the sapphire tiara of Pss Marie of Denmark of Mauboussin.

My understanding is that Felipe acquired the tiara for Letizia as a 5th wedding anniversary present.

I think it woud be great if the tiara could be modified to replace the pearls with coloured stones (eg, turquoise, emeralds or sapphires) to add some much needed colour to the Spanish tiara collection.

An excellent suggest and what a pity its only the 1 diamond fleur de lys a trio would be exquisite one at each end a central one.

The Spanish Royal Arms incorporates the triple fleur de lys of the French Bourbons.

The Mellerio Shzell tiara and her anniversary gift tiara also look quiet good on her. I think for the bigger tiaras she should wear her hair not so flat but with a bit more volume they would work probably better.

This was the case for Grand Duchess Maria Teresa with the big empire tiara. When she once wore it in belgium with a hairstyle with more volume it looke perfect on her.

I think Letizia has the experience and confidence to wear all of the Spanisha tiara's well. I had expected her to be somewhat swamped by tthe large Fleur-de-Lys tiara, but I think she did well there.

Of the 3 larger tiaras, I think both the pearl and diamond tiaras work especially well for her, and I hope to see her wear them more in the future.
