Spain has quite a few tiaras for their royals to choose from, but this tiara is generally considered a big gun and is only worn by La Reina.

Victoria Eugenia, Maria, Sofia, and Letizia, Queens Consort of Spain
King Alfonso XIII gave this tiara to his wife Victoria Eugenia for their 1906 wedding. There are two details about this piece which, for this writer, are very important. One is the symbolism of the fleur-de-lys itself as it is the symbol of the House of Bourbon. What better way to display your House than on the head of its senior lady? The other important detail is that the frame is built out of platinum, one of the lighter metals that can be used for tiara construction. It’s a large tiara and hopefully the comfort level is equal to the grandeur.
Even in lower light, the tiara sparkles.
Spain’s Queen Letizia debuted the tiara in a big way when Argentina came to visit in 2017.
