Ena puts jewels on the market

June 8, 1937

The AP is reporting that Queen Victoria Eugenia of Spain is in negotiations with a Fifth Avenue (New York) jeweler to sell some of her personal jewels. The jeweler made the announcement today after meeting with the queen in London. The jewels are valued at about one million dollars. He said that the "sad queen" was selling her jewelery "as I understand she will have use for the money herself."
He added that he did not believe the queen would be giving the money to "Gen. Franco or the Spanish insurgents."
