The necklace and earrings are very beautiful, but the tiara looks so strange, especially with that obtrusive velvet base. And it is too small for Queen Sofia. But I can imagine it with a more discreet base on the blond heads of the infantas, once they have reached tiara age. The rubies will look good on them, and on a young lady this small tiara would be quite charming.

Beautiful necklace and earrings but they do not work as a tiara in the form worn by Queen Sofia and need to be more visible and not lost in her hair.

The Royal Order of Sartorial Splendor: Tiara Thursday: The Tiaras of Queen Sofia

She has an exquisite collection. One of the most stunning. My favorite is the Fleur de Lys Tiara. I love all of her tiaras except the ruby and the Prussian tiaras.

An amazingly regal and stunning tiara! The design, the diamonds, and the pearls are magnificent. I'm also fond of the emerald version. One of the most exquisite tiaras there is.

I thought it looked particularly beautiful on Sofia for her wedding day with the other jewels worn,its not really a queen's tiara but would be a perfect starter tiara for Leonor in a few year.

Not a Queen's tiara? Well, maybe. But with the current Queen, I'd be mighty pleased if we'd see the shell tiara on her again. Or Queen Sofia, as it it. She seems to skip tiara events since the abdication, but this tiara would have been perfect for Oslo last week.

I don't think we will see Queen Sofia at any tiara events as these events will be given out of deference to Queen Letizia which is a pity as Queen Sofia knows how to wear jewels with pride.

Yes, unfortunately the Spanish Royals are not like the Dutch, where Maxima and Beatrix have no problem shining side by side.
