Queen Victoria Eugenie of Spain's Aquamarine Parure Tiara

Creation:  The original pearl tiara was created by Ansorena.  Queen Victoria Eugenie had the tiara adapted to use aquamarines instead of the pearls but the setting was too fragile for the much larger aquamarines so Infanta Beatriz had it changed once more into the current setting.
