HM THEMES

Fleur de Lys Tiara, Spain c. 1906
Another tiara from the collection of Queen Victoria Eugenia of Spain, this [sic] was a wedding present from her husband King Alfonso XIII in 1906. It was made that same year by Ansorena of Madrid, which had been the court jeweler since 1860. The tiara features three large fleur de lys motifs, each filled with large round diamonds, and connected by swirls and scrolls including more significantly sized diamonds. It’s set in platinum, which is fortunate for its users since platinum is said to be the lightest of the metals typically used in tiara construction. It generally goes by a very simple name, the Fleur de Lys Tiara - the fleur de lys is a significant symbol in heraldry, generally speaking, but is also a symbol of the House of Bourbon.
