Re: Infanta Alicia's jewels?
Yes, that's what I recall.
If these jewels are originate from Infanta Alicia, she must have had a collection to rival many reigning Queen's!
Such a shame however they were hardly ever worn from what I can tell, not at public events anyway, maybe they were worn at private events?
I wonder if there are still many other great and historical collections which are as unknown as these?
the diamond that was recently sold was reported in the Dutch media as being put up for sale by her grandson Don Pedro. I would not be surprised if these pieces were also part of her inheritance and have been put up by heirs of the late Infanta.
For some reason Sotheby's is no longer listing the sale.
Here is a link to the Sotheby's press release from another website .
