Re: The sapphires possibly ended up with Queen Ena
Janet, that tiara (which se donít know how it looked like) was given to Queen Ena by King Alfonso XIII when Infante Don Jaime was born. For this reason I doubt it was made with such jewels.
I don't speak Spanish but I follow the Dinastas board using google translate. There seems to have been some academic journals published in recent weeks about the Spanish royal jewels over the generations which has sparked interest and speculation as to the various pieces and what became of them.
A poster called Lambelle wrote the following on 24 March based on the article, which is based on inventories in Queen Ena's own hand:
"He mentions a piece by Ansorena that brings me down the street of bitterness: diadem of diamonds and sapphires mounted in platinum, with a large cabochon sapphire in the centre and several more adorning the piece. It was already in Ansorena's article, but not her description. What would become of her?"
Queen Ena clearly had a cabochon sapphire tiara, her mother received a cabochon sapphire tiara as a wedding gift. Coincidence? Maybe but the description sounds very similar to the image on Ursula's website, although it appears Ena's piece was an Ansorena piece, that doesnt mean she didn't have it changed by Ansorena.
All just speculation of course. https://dinastias.forogratis.es/antepasados-de-los-borbones-ii-t2361-792.html
