Queen Sofía's strange nod to King Juan Carlos that has not gone unnoticed

Among her dozens of jewels, Queen Sofía has rescued one of the most significant rings from her jeweler, a piece that symbolizes her love story with King Juan Carlos

Little by little, Queen Sofía (84 years old) is resuming her institutional agenda. Back in Madrid after spending a few days in Athens with her sister-in-law Ana María, Felipe VI’s mother reappeared at the gates of the Retiro Garden on the occasion of the delivery of the Reina Sofía Awards for Painting and Sculpture. Apart from the act that he presided over, if there is something that has not gone unnoticed, it is that among all his jewels, a ring of great weight on a sentimental level stood out.

It has been surprising (and a lot) that Doña Sofía has rescued from her personal jeweler the engagement ring that Don Juan Carlos gave her almost 60 years ago, a very attractive piece made up of a gold ring and two rubies that are joined by a diamond.

Shouting “Sofi, take it”, the prince threw the box with the ring to his girlfriend. It seems that kneeling did not go with him… Whether or not it was fun for Sofía from Greece is a mystery, but what is certain is that she must have some affection for the piece if six decades later she continues to wear it .
