Queen Victoria Eugenia of Spain’s Aquamarine Parure Queen Ena’s, Queen Victoria Eugenia’s nickname, aquamarine parure consists of a tiara, necklace with pendant, two sets of earrings, bracelet, and a two-piece brooch. Made by Spanish jewelers Ansorena, the parure was a gift from Ena’s husband, King Alfonso XIII. Originally the tiara looked quite different and was set with drop pearls instead of aquamarines. At some point Ena had it reset to accommodate the beautiful Brazilian aquamarines…

Here's a close up of the original Ansorena aquamarine tiara before Bulgari redid it. Queen Victoria Eugenia ("Ena") of Spain. See earlier pin for hand coloured photograph.

This tiara was originally made as part of a parure of aquamarines for Queen Victoria Eugenie (also called Ena) of Spain. The original shape of the tiara has been changed over the years, and this photo shows it both as it was when worn by Ena before the alterations and how it is now.
