Infanta Elena of Spain, eldest sister of King Felipe, made an appearance in Madrid on Tuesday with some eclectic accessories in tow.

At Madrid's El Pardo Palace, Elena attended the XXV Children and Youth Painting Contest.

Elena chose a pink jacket and patterned trousers as the backdrop for her accessories for the event.

She piled on the jewelry pieces, wearing two necklaces, earrings, a brooch, and bangle bracelets.

A reddish-pink statement necklace, which appeared to be made of some sort of lucite-like material, stole the spotlight. Elena also layered another necklace with gold, blue, and green charms.

She finished off the look with a fantastic floral brooch and a pair of golden earrings. I find each piece interesting and beautiful in and of itself, but the juxtaposition of all of them is a little jarring. Which pieces would you wear, and which would you have left in your jewelry box?
