Sorry you got offended by my post. I was trying to be helpful in case other non-native speakers might have trouble with your posts. It’s up to you of course, if you don’t care about it makes no difference to me.

Uh, it was mentioned in the post you linked above that this tiara might be loaned from a jeweler.
Anyway, I’m going to put my faith into Anna and not a random tumblr Kate fan on this.

Sophie has borrowed from the jeweler before, for example this necklace for William and Kate’s pre-wedding dinner:

Yep they are her wedding earrings. I'm glad she still wears them although I detested her wedding necklace. Stick to royal duties Ed, not jewelry design.

One of my favourite pieces of jewelry Sophie has and wears is a necklace with "J", "L", and "E" on it. Extremely sweet and it's a cute necklace.

She looks great. Would love to see more detail with the tiara.

I love that tiara.

I wish she would have chosen a slightly more substantial necklace though.

....AND a bigger diamond pin for her sash.

I understand the good manners in being understated when dressing for another lady's white tie birthday party when that lady, a queen consort, will probably give it the full gun, (and she did with the Emerald Parure) but IMO Sophie could have worn more diamonds.

That thin chain with the one aquamarine stone was too casual and girlish with that dress, and the small circle brooch seemed a bit garage sale.

I agree, that aqua needs a tennis necklace. Even a small one.

The Countess of Wessex attended day 1 of Royal Ascot on June 20 wearing a jade necklace and earrings with an orange stone:

I know Sophie wore her convertible aquamarine and diamond tiara to the state dinner, but the only hazy photo I saw looked like she had substantial earrings and necklace. The photo is partially obscured by a floral centerpiece, so what I think is a big necklace may well be a sprig of freesia! Anyone know what jewels she wore?

I've seen speculation that it's this set, but no one's seen a good photo:

It was speculated at the time that the necklace that Sophie wore at the pre-wedding dinner for W&K was not borrowed from a jeweller but a gift she had received from the royal family of Bahrain not long before the event. Given the strong government response to the pro-democracy protests at the time in Bahrain, there had been a fair amount of criticism of the regime in Bahrain, and to a lesser extent, of the BRF for accepting such gifts from the royal family of Bahrain.

I am guessing this is the modern, multi-coloured necklace that Sophie wore to the state dinner for the Spanish in London in June.

I've noticed she's stopped wearing the star with her sash. She didn't wear it in Norway either. Sophie looks great though and she seems to get more chances to wear tiaras and orders than any other lady in the BTF.

There is no star for the ladies if the Royal Victorian Order.

It's very difficult to tell, the photograph I've seen seems to show pendant sapphire earrings with a coordinating necklace, quite different to this set!

Strange that neither she nor the Duchess of Cornwall wear it !
