In February, Letizia made her public debut in La Buena, Queen Ena's grand wedding tiara, during a state visit from Argentina. She also wore the earrings and bracelets from the joyas collection.

The bracelets from the suite have become particular favorites of Letizia, who sometimes wears both stacked on one wrist. She's been wearing more fabulous jewels from her mother-in-law, Queen Sofia, as well, and jewels that belonged to her husband's grandmother, the Countess of Barcelona.
