Synopsis:  

A great novel about the jewels of the queens of Spain that marked the dramatic life of Victoria Eugenia and, a century later, are worn by Doña Letizia.

Jewels are not only faithful custodians of the passage of time, but also hold the great secrets of love and heart-breaks of those who have worn them. Queens have worn them as amulets and also as signs of power.

These pages present a different and original vision of Victoria Eugenia de Battemberg, the last Spanish queen before the Second Republic. She came from England to Spain in 1906 to marry Alfonso XIII, bringing a new air to the Court and arousing much criticism for what were considered transgressions. Her existence was marked by political conspiracies, bombings, disillusionment and exile.While her life was falling apart due to the blood disease that some of her children inherited and the constant infidelities of the king, his jeweler, Ramiro García-Ansorena, taught her the history and life of the queens of Spain through his jewelry. He also made her understand that diamonds, pearls, and precious stones would be her strength and security: "A jewel is the only thing that lasts forever." Her extraordinary necklace of diamonds grew in tandem to the king's lack of love for her, as he kept buying her jewels to buy her forgiveness.
