Perhaps just a newspaper hoax? Unfortunately without citing sources ...
Die Krone (Daily newspaper Austria), 13.05.2012
Translation of the header and first paragraph:
The busy King Juan Carlos gives his wife Sofia for the golden wedding on the 14th May jewelry reportedly worth millions, that once belonged the famous 'La Paiva'.
A suitable peace offering? Well, Paiva was the most famous courtesan of Paris, and was eventually preserved in an alcohol-tank.
What bestow royal spouses to each other on important occasions? In general, precious jewelry, after all, the descendants of the dynasty should also benefit and the treasure house to be increased.
So now Queen Sofia of Spain will receive on the occasion of the golden wedding anniversary very special jewelry: a historical diamond ensemble worth billions. The first owner of these gems? The famous 'La Paiva'. Whether the Spanish court knows details about this lady?
The rest of the text is only about 'La Paiva', Countess of Henckel-Donnersmark.
