Newest tiara in House Spain
Ansorena, the royal jeweler in Madrid, sent a gorgeous tiara to the Zarzuela Palace in 2006. It was made for the Princess of Asturias, doña Letizia, and the diadem is made of diamonds and pearls. A central fleur-de-lis is surrounded by pearls, which "veer round in the shape of half moon." Apparently it was a great surprise for the Princess, who has yet to wear it in public. The Princess Diadem has 450 diamonds and five couples of perfect Australian pearls, chosen from among 3000 gems.
