(🇬🇧) My friend @the_royal_watcher drawn my attention to a brooch, once part of the collection of Queen Victoria Eugenia, that will be auctioned off by Sotheby’s next month. This clip brooch was designed by Cartier in 1933. It is set with a Burmese cabochon sapphire weighting 25 carats enhanced with baguette, circular-cut, bullet and kit-shaped diamonds. It first appeared at auction in April 1999. One of Queen Ena’s last public appearances with this brooch was in 1968, during her famous return to Spain, 37 years after the fall of the monarchy. Victoria Eugenia accepted to be the godmother of her great-grandson, Don Felipe. The Baptism of the baby Infant took place in Zarzuela Palace in the 8th of February of 1968. The Queen was allowed to come to Spain for that occasion so that she could be the guest of honor. During her 4 days in Madrid, the Queen stayed at Palacio de Liria, the Palace of the Albas. A reception (or besamanos) was organised there. Hundreds of people came to greet their Queen. On that occasion, Ena was wearing this brooch.

Este broche clip fue diseñado por Cartier en 1933. Está engastado con un zafiro cabujón birmano de 25 quilates realzado con diamantes en forma de baguette, de corte circular, de bala y de kit. Apareció por primera vez en una subasta en abril de 1999. Una de las últimas apariciones públicas de la reina Ena con este broche fue en 1968, durante su famoso regreso a España, 37 años después de la caída de la monarquía. Victoria Eugenia aceptó ser la madrina de su bisnieto, Don Felipe. El Bautismo del bebé tuvo lugar en el Palacio de la Zarzuela el 8 de febrero de 1968. En esa ocasión se permitió a la Reina venir a España para que pudiera ser la invitada de honor. Durante sus 4 días en Madrid, la Reina se hospedó en el Palacio de Liria, el Palacio de los Alba. Allí se organizó una recepción (o besamanos). Cientos de personas acudieron a saludar a su Reina. En esa ocasión Ena llevaba este broche.
