In 1879, this ornament, similar in style to the Russian kokoshnik. Was a gift for the wedding of the Archduchess Maria Christina of Austria and King Alfonso XII of Spain. Meanwhile, Maria Cristina handed the jewelry to her son Alfonso XIII in the hope that her spouse Victoria Eugenia would wear it, but her contemporaries did not find evidence that she wore it at least once. Later, the tiara passed into the hands of Maria de las Mercedes of Orleans when she married Infante Juan, the Barcelona Earl.
However, the adornment itself is a kokoshnik with a weave of diamonds with large pearls, and in each “loop” there is another “drop” with diamonds, where pearls shine in the center. For Queen Laetitia, this is the first exit in the tiara of Mary Christina.
