There are not many jewels on these vaults most of them were sold when the SRF had to go from Spain. For example Elizabeth Taylor has La Peregrina which was one of the most famous jewels of the SRF.

The most important piece is now the Fleur de lys tiara which was a present of Alfonso XIII to his wife Victoria Eugenia in their wedding day. It's only wore by the queen of Spain.

And Q. Sofia

The Flower tiara was a present of Franco to the new princess of Spain. The origin is supposed to be russian but was bought in Madrid. It's shared by all the female members of the SRF. And it was used by Cristina of her wedding day.

Ena's pearl tiara was inherited by one of  her daughters but was bought in the 1990s by Juan Carlos. It has only been wore since he bought it by the queen and Cristina (in Victoria's wedding). In the past was similar to the Vladimir as it could be used with pearls or emeralds but the emeralds were sold.

All the emeralds were sold to Farah Diva and now they are in Iran.

A few more jewels from the spanish royal ladies:

The Niarchos rubies. It was a wedding gift given by Stavros Niarchos to Queen Sofia, then Princess of Greece (I believed it were designed by Van Cleef and Arpels). The necklace can be worn in many ways: as a necklace, as a choker and as a tiara. A pair of earrings and a bracelet are also part of the set. I only see Queen Sofia wearing it:

The Mellerio shell tiara, also known as "La Chata". It's known as La Chata because it belonged to Infanta Isabel, known as "La Chata" due to her nose. It was designed by Mellerio in the 19th century. It's also shared by the spanish royal ladies:

Infanta Isabel
Queen Sofia
Princess Letizia

The Prussian tiara. It was a wedding gift given by Kaiser Wilhelm II to his daugther Princess Victoria Louise of Hanover, Queen Sofia's grandmother. She gave it to her daughter Frederica when she became Queen of Greece and then it was given to Princess Sofia on her wedding day. It was the tiara Queen Sofia and Princess Letizia wore at their weddings. Nowdays is usually used by Letizia but was shared in the past:

Queen Frederica
Queen Sofia
Princess Letizia

The Marichalar Tiara. It was a wedding gift given to Infanta Elena by the Marichalar family. IShe used it at her wedding to her now ex husband, Jaime de Marichalar. Despite their divorce, the Infanta continuous to use it, recently at the swedish royal wedding:

 thankyou

The Mellerio apart from being the ugliest tiara that the SRF has was a present of the Count of Barcelona to Sofia for her wedding; she wore it in the pre wedding gala. Letizia has only used it once, but I don't remember if any of the infantas did used it.

The Mellerio is indeed on of the ugliest tiaras around. I don't remember seeing pic of any of the Infantas wearing it when they were young. I've seen pics of them wearing the Prussian and the Floral but not the Mellerio.

The pearls tiara is one of the oldest jewels of the SRF, it was a present to Maria de las Mercedes when she married Alfonso XII, and afterwards it was a present to Maria de las Mercedes when she married the count of Barcelona. It's not clear who owned it when the countess died, as only infanta Pilar and her daughter had used it. Anyway during the 90's JC bought it.

First time Sofia used it was for the Persepolis party, it was loaned to her for that. Pic

Infanta Pilar used the tiara for her wedding (pic) as did her daughter (Pic - Pic).

Sofia using it when she already owned the tiara - Pic.

 celebration thankyou

There is also a new tiara made by Spanish jeweller Ansorena, given to Princess Letizia last year by her husband Prince Felipe. It has diamonds and pearls with a big fleur-de-lys (emblem of the Bourbons) in the center.
She has not worn it yet, but here is what it's supposed to look like:

The fleur-de-lys is detachable and be worn as a brooch:

 thankyou But according to Hello the tiara is not a present from Felipe but from Ansorena. And I have to say that I find it ugly.

Imo Letizia looks good with the prussian and floral but the mellerio doesn't suit her. And the biggest tiaras won't either.

I think that Cristina looked very pretty with Ena's pearl tiara in the swedish wedding.

Letizia wearing the prussian with the hair down - Pic She has wore this tiara like this in many occcasions. I have to say that I don't like tiaras without updos.

I was talking about the mellerio not the prussian - Pic. The tiara is ugly but her face is too angular for it.

I don't see her in the fleur, or the pearls tiaras because they need more hair and bigger head. We'll see.
