Re: Fate of Queen Ena's turquoises?
This is one of those big mysteries that everyone wants to know. That tiara, according to some studies, was commissioned by King Alfonso XIII to Ansorena and given to Queen Ena as a gift.
I suspect that this parure (or parts of it) served as a wedding gift to one of the Queen's daughters, Infanta Maria Cristina. And later on given again as a wedding gift to one of daughters.
The posts below about Queen Sophia's turquoises made me wonder what happened to Queen Ena's turquoises.
Did Queen Ena pass on her turquoises? Or were they sold?
All that I know is that the necklace was a wedding gift from Edward VII and Queen Alexandra.
