You know you've really made it when a) you're queen of a country and b) you have your very own awards program. Queen Letizia of Spain attended the Reina Letizia 2015 Awards on Friday in Madrid, and she chose classic earrings for the occasion.

Here's a pretty good close-up of the earring: a round Australian pearl suspended from four bezel-set diamonds, plus a larger bezel-set diamond stud. Letizia has had these earrings in her collection for some time.

I'm really loving the way that Letizia mixes things up in the jewelry department lately: fun, inexpensive pieces, classic staples, and more expensive precious gems. Variety is the spice of life -- and of successful jewel-wearing!
