Fleur de Lys Tiara

Spanish Royals

This tiara, considered the most important diadem of their collection, called “La Buena” (The Good one) and only worn by the Queens of Spain, was a wedding present from King Alfonso XIII to his bride, Princess Victoria Eugenie of Battenberg. Made in 1906 by Ansorena with more than 500 diamonds set in platinum, it features the Fleur de Lys, the Bourbon’s emblem.

The following photo shows some of the wedding presents the Princess received, on the upper right corner, the Fleur de Lys tiara in its original, closed form:
